Global Electric School Bus Market to Grow at 29.51% During 2024-2032, Propelled by Sustainable Public Transport System Initiatives

September 19, 2022 | Automotive Industry

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Electric School Bus Market Report by Type (Battery Electric School Bus, Hybrid School Bus), Capacity Design Type (Type A, Type C, Type D), Sales Channel (Direct Sales, Distributor), Application (Preschool Education, Primary School, and Others), and Region 2024-2032”, the global electric school bus market size reached US$ 27.4 Billion in 2023. Electric school buses use electric motors instead of regular internal combustion engines (ICEs) to ensure quiet operation, which allows the driver to focus on the road. In addition to being powered by onboard electric motors and a battery system, these buses can also operate using an external energy source, such as a power grid. When compared to conventional school buses that run on diesel, propane, gasoline or compressed natural gas (CNG), these buses have very minimal maintenance costs. Currently, they are widely used by schools to foster sustainable development, reduce emissions, and generate additional income by selling excess electricity to utility companies. Some of the numerous benefits associated with electric school buses include high voltage, functional safety, cold-weather performance, and reliability.

Global Electric School Bus Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by multiple favorable initiatives undertaken by government bodies of several countries to create sustainable and fuel-efficient urban public transport systems. This can be attributed to the increasing concerns regarding the depletion of fossil fuels. Additionally, the escalating demand for alternative energy due to the rapidly fluctuating fuel prices is also resulting in the uptake of fuel-efficient and high-performance school buses. In line with this, continual technological advancements in the automotive industry, along with the easy availability of electronic components and continually improving charging infrastructure, is providing an impetus to the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include the lowering costs of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries, inflating disposable income levels, rapid urbanization, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities and mergers and acquisitions (M&As) conducted by key players. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 281.1 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 29.51% during 2024-2032.
