Market Restraint

COVID-induced Slump in Demand for Public Transport to Inhibit Market Growth

The electric bus market growth is premised on the growing utilization of public transport systems, especially in emerging economies. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a sudden drop in the demand for buses around the world as travelers are fearful of catching the virus in such crowded spaces. In a recent report, the World Bank has revealed that travel restrictions for non-essential purposes within cities has shrunk the demand for public transport between 25% and 50% in many cities worldwide. An article published in the newspaper Times of India reported that in San Francisco ridership in public buses and trains has dropped by a whopping 85%, while in the UK roughly 50% of commuters are less likely to use public transport after lockdowns have been lifted. Additionally, social distancing and overall decline in economic activities have crippled the manufacturing sector. As a result, production of these buses and other vehicles has considerably decreased. Cumulatively, these factors are likely to inhibit the growth of this market throughout 2020.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific to Lead Market Share Backed by China’s Flourishing Market

In 2019, the market volume in Asia Pacific stood at 194 thousand units and the region is poised to dominate the electric bus market share during the forecast period. This is mainly attributable to the rapid growth and expansion of the e-mobility sector in China. For instance, China is home to 99% of the world’s electric buses. Supporting this transition have been the favorable governmental policies that have encouraged innovation and accelerated the movement towards sustainable development.

In Europe, the market will be primarily driven by the stringent implementation of emissions regulation norms and quick adoption of green mobility solutions. Similar trends are anticipated to fuel the market in North America, where the emphasis to reduce air pollution is intensifying.
