World Buses Industry

World demand to rise 5% annually through 2016

The world market for buses is projected to climb 5.0 percent annually to 631,000 units in 2016. Product sales will expand at an even faster pace in dollar terms, rising 6.2 percent per year through 2016 to $61.5 billion due to increases in average bus prices. Demand will be spurred by efforts to reduce air pollution and traffic congestion in metropolitan areas as urban populations continue to grow, by volatile fuel costs making public transportation more attractive, and by the ongoing development of public transportation infrastructures, including bus rapid transit systems, in a number of developing countries. An upturn in bus spending in developed nations such as France, Japan, and the US will also contribute to overall sales advances, as tax revenues climb along with GDP and provide government agencies with the funds needed to both replace older vehicles and expand current fleets. In addition, higher disposable income levels will allow more tourists to travel via motor coach to vacation venues.

Asia/Pacific region to see strongest growth in demand

In a continuation of recent trends, the Asia/Pacific region is forecast to register the strongest market advances through 2016, fueled by robust economic growth and the expansion of urban transit systems, particularly in China and India. China alone will account for three-fifths of all new bus demand globally between 2011 and 2016. The Africa/Mideast region will post the second fastest gains, supported by further development of public transportation infrastructures, most notably in Nigeria, where bus demand will expand 14 percent annually through 2016 from a relatively small current base, the fastest rate of growth of any major market in the world. North America will record the next strongest market advances, followed by Eastern Europe and Western Europe. Bus sales in all of these regions will be spurred by generally healthy economic conditions, increased urbanization, and an upturn in government spending. In Central and South America, on the other hand, bus demand is expected to decline modestly between 2011 and 2016. This will be due to a drop in bus sales in Brazil from an unusually high level in 2011, when vehicle prebuys in advance of new emissions standards that went into effect in 2012 caused demand to surge.

Type C school buses to be fastest growing product

The market for Type C school buses is projected to expand at the strongest pace of any major product type through 2016. Demand will be driven largely by increased sales in China, where Type C bus sales will expand rapidly from a small existing base because of safety concerns with other types of buses currently used to transport students. Transit bus demand will climb at the next fastest rate, stimulated by growth in urban populations and by efforts to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality. The market for motor coaches, which accounts for the largest portion of world bus sales, will increase at a somewhat slower pace, bolstered by rising per capita incomes and vacation travel spending. Demand for all other buses, which include shuttles and other smaller vehicles based on a medium-duty chassis, will expand at the slowest rate, although gains will be roughly the same as those registered from 2006 to 2011, driven by a pickup in tourism and travel spending.

Study coverage

This upcoming industry study presents historical demand data for 2001, 2006 and 2011, plus forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by bus type, world regional market, and for 22 major national markets. The study also considers market environment factors, assesses industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 37 competitors in the global industry.
