Furthermore, as part of the Saudi Vision 2030, the country is planning to increase the number of public transports in the country and the companies present in the country are collaborating with electric bus manufacturers, which is positively influencing the growth of the market. Moreover, increasing population and rising focus of government on reducing reliance on oil exports would further steer growth in the market in the coming years.
