Report Highlights

  • Bus manufacturing is a slow growth business with shifting demand patterns and new niches to exploit.
  • Electric buses are a given for the public sector; however the private sector is concerned about cost‑benefit.
  • Advent of Euro-style OE ready-built vans is increasingly serious competition for under-15 passenger shuttle and paratransit service. Growing conversion business versus traditional bus body fabrication is driven by demand from van pools, shuttle operations and paratransit needs.
  • Bus fabricators have entered the luxury end of OE passenger van conversion in an effort for diversity growth.
  • Market size estimates are provided by chassis type/brand and end-use applications.
  • Market size and share breakouts by fuel type and impaired-mobility access—wheelchair and low floor.
