Market Overview and Dynamics: E-bus Penetration to Multifold during the Forecast Period

The electric bus market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 32-35% during the forecast period of 2022-2028. Subsidy support from regional governments, domestic regulations, decarbonizing, and transition to zero-emission resources are expected to continue to support the demand growth for electric buses in the global markets.   

The global electric bus market is set to see considerable growth in the next few years, supported by government funding, improved cost economies led by batteries, and rapid electrification plans.  High up-front costs, technical difficulties with the operation, and low margins for manufacturers are some of the current challenges for participants in the electric bus market.

China continues to lead the electric bus market, making up about 95% of the global e-bus fleet in 2021; followed by Europe. In Europe, the expansion in the sales of electric buses is driven by commitments from major cities, including London (UK), Copenhagen (Denmark), Paris (France), and Madrid (Spain) to begin procuring only zero-emission or electric buses.  Regional electrification plans continue to reinforce the demand outlook for electric buses. For instance, Germany has a target to sell 50% of urban buses based on BEV or hybrid by 2030, Chile has a target to electrify 25% of the public transport bus fleet in the capital Santiago by 2025, etc.
