Stringent emission regulations and directives imposed by governments across the globe will propel the adoption of electric buses. For instance, in 2019, France announced its 100% zero-emission vehicle target for 2040. As a part of the Paris Climate agreement, the country passed a law to ban ICE vehicle sales by 2040. Additionally, the European Commission (EC) has proposed about 1.3 million publicly accessible chargers by 2030 to enhance the market penetration of EVs.
 

One of the major factors hampering the market growth is the high initial purchase cost associated with the electric buses. The procurement of new hybrid and electric buses requires heavy down payments and large capital investments. Additional costs, such as interest on loans, licensing cost, insurance cost, taxes, and storage cost, further add to the total cost of ownership of these buses. Moreover, the market is also hampered by the lack of adequate charging infrastructure.
 

The electric bus market has been significantly impacted due to the prevailing situations of COVID-19. The manufacturing of electric buses has been affected and sales numbers also decreased because of mass quarantines and lockdown during the first two quarters of 2020. Electric vehicle industry players have faced challenges due to shortage of capital and financial insecurities caused by the decline in revenues.
 

All-electric bus segment dominates the market share

The all-electric bus type segment is poised to witness significant growth owing to increasing government focus on strengthening the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. The Asia Pacific all-electric segment held around 65% of the electric bus market share in 2020. The European Commission (EC) has proposed about 1.3 million publicly accessible chargers by 2030 to enhance the market penetration of electric vehicles. Similarly, the France government has an objective to deploy over seven million charging stations across the country by 2030.
