World Electric Bus Markets 2021-2027 with BYD (China), Yutong (China), Proterra (US), VDL Groep (Netherlands), and AB Volvo (Sweden) Dominating

·4-min read

Dublin, June 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Electric Bus Market by Propulsion (BEV, PHEV & FCEV), Application (Intercity & Intra-city), Consumer Segment (Fleet Operators & Government), Range, Length of Bus, Power Output, Battery Capacity, Component, Battery type & Region - Global Forecast to 2027" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global electric bus market size is projected to grow from 81 thousand units in 2021 to reach 704 thousand units by 2027, at a CAGR of 43.1%.

The advancements in battery pack technologies and electric powertrains are some of the major factors driving the growth of the electric bus and coach market. Many countries are focusing on the electrification of their mass transit solutions, especially buses and coaches.

Factors such as rise in pollution and environmental hazards, stringent government regulations, and stiff competition have compelled automotive OEMs to make fuel-efficient and environment-friendly buses.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a slight impact on the electric bus market. Both the production and sales of new vehicles had come to a halt in Q1 and Q2 of 2020 across the globe as the whole ecosystem had been disrupted. OEMs had to wait until lockdowns were lifted to resume production, which affected their business.

Post the pandemic, the demand for mass transportation would increase, as people would return to their workplace, and use public transportation. In addition, component manufacturing is also suspended, and small Tier II and Tier III manufacturers could face liquidity issues. Nevertheless, another wave of COVID-19 due to newer strains may hamper the recovery in some countries.

Subsequently, electric bus manufacturers would need to adjust the production volume based on the COVID-19 scenario across different countries. In addition, component manufacturing too was suspended, and small Tier II and Tier III manufacturers are facing liquidity issues. Thus, production suspension during the outbreak and lower demand post the pandemic might have an unprecedented impact on electric bus providers

The electric bus market comprises major manufacturers such as BYD (China), Yutong (China), Proterra (US), VDL Groep (Netherlands), and AB Volvo (Sweden).
