Report Analysis@

The market for electric vehicle is anticipated to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period owing to rising stringency of emission norms and increasing pollution levels in the environment. Air pollution harms human health, particularly in those already vulnerable owing to their age or existing health problems, thus responsible authorities are taking several steps to minimize pollution levels across the globe.

Rising demand for environment-friendly vehicles is likely to boost the market for electric buses. Lower running and maintenance cost of these vehicles is anticipated to attract private firms to adopt electric buses for transportation purpose. Furthermore, large subsidies offered by governments to encourage the adoption of electric buses is likely to be a key factor driving the electric bus market. High price of electric buses and need for charging stations are projected to hamper the electric bus market; however, significant reduction in battery price is likely to reduce the price of an electric bus during the forecast period. Moreover, longer lifespan of the electric bus with lower noise production are projected to propel the market for electric bus during the forecast period.

Rise in pollution levels in highly populous cities is significantly boosting the electric bus market. Most cities with rising traffic congestion are encouraging the adoption of public transport, which is anticipated to lead to the rise in demand for public transport services, thus adoption of electric buses, instead of conventional buses, is expected to significantly reduce pollution levels during the forecast period. Asia Pacific and Europe are highly lucrative markets for electric buses. The electric bus market in China has expanded at a rapid pace in the last few years in order to tackle the pollution levels in some of its most polluted cities, such as Shenzhen. The electric bus market in other countries in Asia Pacific, such as India, Japan, South Korea, Australia, and Singapore, is anticipated to expand at a considerable pace during the forecast period owing to various steps taken by the governments of these countries to promote electric buses.

In terms of electrification type, the battery electric vehicle segment is likely to expand at a rapid pace in all the regions owing to their zero emission capability. In countries and sub-regions of Asia Pacific, such as India and Rest of Asia Pacific, local manufacturers, such as TATA Motors and Ashok Leyland, have entered into the production of hybrid buses which is estimated to boost the hybrid bus segment at a remarkable pace during the forecast period. However, the battery electric bus segment is likely to gain market share held by the hybrid bus segment by the end of the forecast period, owing to rising stringency of emission norms and higher advantages of battery electric buses over plug-in hybrid and hybrid buses.
