China to Remain Key Contributor for Growth of Asia Pacific Segment

Depending on the type of electrification, the segment of battery electric bus is projected to dominate the global electric bus market. The growth of the segment is mainly because of the growing number of battery buses in China. For instance, Shenzen, a province in China, holds more number of battery electric buses than the complete fleet in the whole North America. Thus, from a geographical standpoint, the regional segment of Asia Pacific is the most dominant one. Major contribution comes from China and the nation accounts for over 85% of the overall regional market. Other nations such as India, Indonesia, and Japan are expected to present lucrative business opportunities for the growth of the electric bus market.
