Excessive congestion in world's cities as a result of rapid globalization has put the onus back on public transportation. BRT, being the fastest and the most financially viable option available, makes it an automatic choice for urban transport developers around the world. On the operational front a well-designed BRT system can be successful is delivering sustainable results with limited or no operational subsidy at the same time offering exceptional efficiency. In a recessionary environment like today, city developers would rather find it difficult to raise the required capital for expensive rail based solutions, thus making BRT ever more attractive than it was 20 years ago.

Executive Summary—Key Findings
Globally, more than xxx Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lines are operational or under various stages of implementation. This translates into enormous market potential for new vehicle purchase and replacement demand.
The global BRT vehicle market is set to reach more than x,xxx units by 2018. Latin America and China alone will account for more than xx percent of the total market.
Volvo is expected to retain global leadership with over xx percent market share by 2018, while Daimler is an emerging top competitor with an expected xx percent share.
Diesel will remain the dominant powertrain system over the forecast period. Alternative fuel powertrain penetration is set to triple to more than xx percent by 2018.
By 2018, xx- to xx-meter, low-floor, telematics-enabled buses will be featured in most BRT lines throughout the world.
