Transit agencies and authorities in Asia Pacific are increasingly focusing on the deployment of buses (diesel, CNG, electric, hydrogen-fuelled, etc.) and the modernization of existing bus infrastructure. Increasingly, there is shift towards the use of clean fuel buses, and targets have been set for the introduction of zero-emission buses and the installation of related infrastructure by 2030.

To highlight the opportunities in the bus market in the Asia Pacific region, Global Mass Transit Research has released its first edition of the Asia Pacific Bus Market Outlook Report 2021-2030, the most comprehensive and up-to-date study on this segment. The report provides detailed information on  the current bus market and future prospects in 75 cities in 23 countries.

Some key highlights from the report:

  • Global Mass Transit Research estimates that over USD40 billion is expected to be invested in procuring buses across the 75 cities.
  • Around 33 per cent of the total current fleet is expected to be replaced by 2030.
  • In the next decade, the spotlight will be on the promotion of sustainable mobility and clean energy, with cities transitioning from diesel buses to battery-electric and hydrogen-powered buses.
