The global electric bus charging infrastructure market will continue to climb an average annual rate of 6% over the next four years. Here are some key findings from their latest report on this market
The electric bus charging infrastructure market has experienced significant growth in the past decade, and the trend of increased use of electric buses in public transportation systems isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.
The Global Electric Bus Market Is Expected To Grow
It’s no secret that our world is in need of a sustainable solution. The electric bus market is one example of how we can make a difference. The global electric bus market is expected to grow by 6% from 2017-2025, reaching a total value of $5.5 billion by 2025.
Electric buses offer significant reductions in fuel costs and emissions levels, as well as improved public health due to less reliance on diesel fuels. Globally, the electric bus charging infrastructure market is forecasted to reach an annual volume of 934 million units by 2022 and reach 2 billion units annually by 2026 with North America representing more than 60% share of electric buses sold worldwide during this period.

The US Is Investing In Electric Bus Infrastructure
In order to cut down on emissions, improve air quality, and save money, many U.S. cities are investing in electric bus infrastructure. In New York City, for example, they’ve committed $32 million to purchase 50 fully electric buses and five charging stations. The city has also allocated an additional $10 million to help create a network of electric vehicle charging stations that will serve both public and private vehicles in all five boroughs.
Europe Is Leading The Way In Electric Bus Adoption
With a push for clean, sustainable transportation and a focus on reducing emissions, it is little surprise that Europe has been leading the way in electric bus adoption. The European Union has set regulations mandating that companies reduce their emissions by 20% between 2020 and 2030. This will be difficult if not impossible without switching to electric vehicles. Since buses are one of the major sources of air pollution in most cities, they are an important target for reducing emissions.
China Is The Largest Market For Electric Buses
China is currently the largest market for electric buses, with over 300 million kilometers traveled by such vehicles in 2016. The country has ambitious plans to put 5,000 electric buses on its roads in 2017 and at least 10,000 more each year until 2020. To achieve this goal, China’s Ministry of Transport announced in November 2016 a $2.6 billion purchase of 200 pure electric buses from BYD Co., Ltd.
The Electric Bus Charging Infrastructure Market Is Expected To Grow
In order to meet climate change goals, cities across the world are turning to electric buses. The rise in demand is being driven by an increasing number of cities with zero-emission vehicle mandates and by government incentives for electric bus buyers.
The global electric bus charging infrastructure market size was valued at USD 890.2 million in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16.6% over 2018-2024, reaching USD 2,694 million by 2024.
