Asia-Pacific Electric Bus Market to Reach 1,19,608 Units in Volume Terms by 2027

Adoption of EVs by public & private transport agencies due to lower ownership costs are expected to drive the Asia-Pacific electric bus market through the forecast period.

According to TechSci Research report, Asia-Pacific Electric Bus Market- By Country, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2017-2027”, Asia-Pacific electric bus market is estimated to reach 1,19,608 units by 2027. Globally, China is the leading country to incorporate electric buses rapidly in their fleet. According to the China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC), the country’s neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV) industry has adopted a “3-Steps” development strategy. First, 2009 to 2012 – NEV uptake phase- initial NEV development and market uptake through the establishment of pilot demonstration zones and cities. Second, 2013 to 2015 – NEV market development phase- further development of the NEV market and increasing number of pilot cities and city clusters. Lastly, nationwide NEV mass adoption phase since 2016- improvement of technology, product safety and reliability, battery technology and continuous dropping costs of batteries; nationwide adoption of NEVs. Owing to lower ownership & operation costs, governments and private transport agencies are actively involved in adopting and replacing their old diesel or petrol/gasoline powered vehicles with electrically powered buses. Moreover, with expansion of EV charging infrastructure and lowered costs of EV battery and other components, various airports and intercity transportation facilities have started deploying electric buses across the globe. Numerous well-known companies and start-up companies are investing in electric vehicle technologies, and manufacturers are involving in launching of technologically advanced vehicle models. Moreover, various incentive schemes are being regulated to facilitate this adoption of electric buses.  All these factors are anticipated to accelerate the growth of the Asia-Pacific electric bus market in the upcoming five years.

Furthermore, by propulsion type, the market is segmented across HEV, BEV and PHEV. On the basis of range, the market is bifurcated among vehicles with range up to 150 miles, 151-250 miles, and above 250 Miles, based on battery capacity, the market is segmented into Upto 100 kWh, 100 kWh - 200 kWh, 201 kWh to 300 kWh, and Above 300 kWh. Based on length, the market is classified among buses with length up to 8m, 8.1-10m, 10.1-12m & above 12m. The market is segmented across China, India, Japan, Singapore, Australia, Indonesia, South Korea, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand & Rest of Asia-Pacific. As of 2021, the market is being dominated by China; however, with public as well as private transit companies are rapidly adopting electric buses in their fleet in India, the country’s electric buses demand is increasing rapidly.
