According to the Market Statsville Group (MSG), the global electric bus market size is expected to grow from USD 21.6 billion in 2021 to USD 58.5 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 12.9% during the forecast periodThe electric bus market is driven by factors such as high-performance and low-emission buses, stringent government rules & regulations toward vehicle emission, and a reduction in battery prices. However, low fuel economy & serviceability and high manufacturing costs restrict the market growth. Furthermore, technological advancements and proactive government initiatives for the adoption of e-buses creates lucrative growth opportunities for the market.

Market Dynamics

The conventional gas-powered buses use an internal combustion engine to generate power. The combustion system fully incinerates the fuel in an ideal scenario and creates carbon dioxide and water as waste. However, the combustion system generates many greenhouse gases, causing environmental pollution. Whereas an electric bus uses an electric motor powered via a continuous current supply, it does not create any pollutants. The U.S., France, China, and Germany have implemented strict government laws for vehicular emission, making it mandatory for automobile manufacturers.

The high cost of electric buses and related components such as batteries and monitoring systems (battery management systems, CAN bus modules) hamper the market growth. Infrastructure development for EVs is also expensive. An EV battery requires frequent and rapid charging using specialized equipment such as an electric charger found only at EV charging stations. Several high-capacity charging stations are needed to be installed. Electric buses and coaches are more expensive than the traditional ICE buses and coaches because of the charger, battery, and charger installation costs.

Global Electric Bus Market Definition

An electric bus is a completely electric bus and does not have a traditional ICE engine for its propulsion. It is also known as the e-bus. Electric buses can store the required electricity on board, or be fed constantly from an external source. Most e-buses storing electricity are battery-electric buses, where the e-motor obtains energy from an involved battery pack, although instances of other storage modes do exist.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global Electric Bus Market

Both the production and COVID-19 have a significant impact on the electric bus market. Production and sales of the new electric buses came to a halt across the world as the whole ecosystem got disrupted. OEMs had to wait until the lockdowns were lifted to resume production, which has affected their business. The demand for the new electric buses during the post-pandemic is expected to increase with economies recovering gradually. However, another wave of COVID-19 due to newer strains may hamper the recovery in some nations. Subsequently, electric bus manufacturers must adjust the production volume based on the COVID-19 scenario across the different countries.
