Buses - Global Market Trends 2019UPDATE IN 2021

In all regions across the globe, buses remain the most widespread public transport mode. Their demand goes hand in hand with several, mostly region-specific factors, including demographics, increasing mobility of people and environmental awareness, as well as public funding. Buses are comparatively to other transportation modes cheap and easy to use, since their use does not necessarily require the implementation of a specific infrastructure. This makes buses ideal vehicles for both short- and long-distance services.

E-Bus special:

Only 0.2% of all buses in Europe are electrified. At 0.4%, Germany is even above the European average, but China shows what is possible: here the share of electric buses is already 14%. Political efforts to promote electric mobility in local public transport are picking up noticeably worldwide. As a result, a great uncertainty can be observed in many markets when it comes to the procurement of new buses - the decision in favour of electric buses still seems to be difficult for many operators.
