Market Overview:

Global electric bus market stood at around $ 47.35 million in 2021 and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of about 38% over the calculated period.

An electrical bus may be a bus that's powered by electricity. Nowadays, electric vehicles are on the increase and still advance as more Americans demand a more efficient and eco-friendly vehicle. Electric buses primarily travel by consuming electricity. Electric buses are mainly operated in two types, namely electric-only and hybrid (electrical energy could also be the first fuel, thus, consuming less petroleum), which may be recharged from a typical wall socket.

With expanding need for controlling GHG (Greenhouse gases) emissions emitted by vehicles, the government is encouraging the utilization of electrical powered vehicles across various states, which is boosting the demand for electric buses. The growth of the electrical bus market has been contributed to the increasing concerns about depletion of fossil fuels and environmental pollution.

Recent Developments:

  • Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and Volvo Buses have introduced the world’s first full capacity size, autonomous electric bus. The single-deck Volvo Electric bus is 12 meters long and features a full capacity on the brink of 80 passengers.
  • The all new Volvo 7900 Electric is such a lot quite an electrical bus. It’s an enabler, a tool that provides you totally new possibilities to develop your conveyance – and your whole city. The Volvo 7900 Electric can run everywhere. Silent and clean, with no climate emissions, it can go where people actually want to travel.
  • Fully electric buses are being employed by Buses Vule and STP Santiago to serve the Santiago public transportation. Yutong's delivery comes due to the Chilean government has announced an eco-friendly urban development policy, part of which incorporates a program to change the current city buses with new-energy vehicles by 2050.

Drivers and Restraints of Electric Bus Market:


The global electric bus market sales are driven by different elements. It is predicted that world has only 50 years of oil left if used in the present manner. As a result, the nations across the globe are turning towards energy sources. Past few years, different government legislations are enforcing clean fuel acts. The move is meant to attenuate pollution which has ill-effects on person as per World Health Organization (WHO), pollution causes approximately 100,000 deaths annually in Europe region, lessening average lifetime of a person's by a year a minimum of. Hence so as to curb the perils of pollution, nations are investing in global electric bus market. Technological developments and implementation of high-end batteries are predicted to lower the EV bus prices by almost 20% by 2025. Other features that add up to demand are high fuel efficiency, higher ROI, and noise efficient compared to standard buses.


The price of electrical buses is far higher as compared to their conventional counterparts. The demand for conveyance vehicles has been on the increase with rapid urbanization and increasing population, especially within the developing economies of the planet. Moreover, the selected pricing of electrical buses is bounding their acceptance in these price sensitive countries. The shortage of electrical vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure is additionally hindering the penetration of electric buses within the conveyance system across countries, thereby restraining the expansion of the global electric bus market.

Market Segmentation:

By Vehicle Type:

  • Battery Electric Bus
  •  Plug-in Hybrid Electric Bus

Of these, BEB was the leading category based on volume, accounting for 75% share in 2017. Moreover, the category is predicted to witness considerable growth within the market during the forecast period, due to declining battery prices and therefore the minimum levels of carbon emissions it offers. Plug-in electric buses need a plug-in power source for charging and then combustion engine will improve the motor, which assists in the battery recharge and stores the energy condition. Hybrid electric buses will save energy while braking/decelerating, therefore used in high-intensity tasks.

By Consumer Segment:

  •  Government
  •  Fleet Operators
