China to Account for Nearly Half the Global H&E Bus Sales by 2020

Advanced powertrain technologies, such as hybridization and electrification of transit buses, will find huge demand and this decade will mark an accelerated growth story for both these green technologies. The study captures the key emerging trends in the global heavy duty hybrid and electric transit bus market with an emphasis on technologies trends, market growth forecast for key regions, and market share of transit bus OEMs, hybrid and electric technologies. Additionally, key hybrid and electric system supplier profiles, key global transit bus OEM profiles, and product mapping for major regions have been covered.

Executive Summary—Top HD Transit Bus Market Performance

The global market softened across the board in 2012, and North America and India showed moderate growth in transit bus sales while China and Russia experienced decent growth.
• Robust demand from Tier II cities and new BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) services have helped sustain market growth in China.
• Sovereign debt crisis and austerity measures across Europe weakened transit bus demand. However, subsidies were extended to green energy buses.
• Despite slowdown in second half of the year, the Indian transit bus market experienced a marginal yoy growth. The slowdown is expected to continue through 2013.
• North American bus industry showed recovery on the backing of replacement orders and federal push for green mobility.
• Slowing Brazilian economy, coupled with Euro V introduction impacted transit bus sales. However, there was a recovery in the last quarter.
• Russia’s urban passenger mobility space saw major push in wake of rising congestion and the modernization drive by fleets.

Executive Summary—Integrated Mobility

The future of urban transportation is multimodal commuting, combining door-to-door solutions using dedicated mobility platforms.
• Door-to-door integrated, multimobility a reality in future
• Vehicle manufacturers to offer smart mobility solutions ensuring first- and last-mile connectivity
• Government to combine public transport with bike/two-wheeler/car-rental schemes
• Market will see new participants in market termed as Mobility Integrators

The HD transit buses and BRT provide a X to Xpphpd capacity that can bridge the gap between high-capacity upstream urban rail systems and low-capacity downstream transportation options.
• Subways and heavy urban rail systems are available in city centres in urban areas.
• The operating capacities are X to X passenger per hour per direction (pphpd).
• Car sharing, bike sharing and other non-motorized transportation options emerge critical in delivering the last-mile connectivity.

• Conventional buses can handle capacities in the range of X toX pphpd.
• BRT has an ideal capacity of X to Xpphpd to bridge the gap.

Executive Summary—Comparison of Transit Bus and Urban Railway

Transit bus systems emerge as a sustainable solution for both developed and developing economies, with relatively lower capital expenditure and high route flexibility compared to railway system.

Executive Summary—Transit Bus Market Key Influencing Trends

The lowest pressure on existing energy infrastructure and lower emissions relative to CNG/LNG buses will catalyze the relevance and prevalence of hybrid buses for urban mobility through the forecast period and after.
