Global Electric Bus Charging Infrastructure Market Synopsis
Electric bus has the potential to revolutionize the world's transportation industry, which helps for drastically decreasing carbon emissions. The shift to electric buses (e-buses) gives an opportunity to transform the cities to zero-emission transportation. These electric buses includes the important component such as charging station and infrastructure. E-buses have the potential to provide a number of benefits, including increased energy efficiency and quality of air, as well as long-term climate change mitigation which is preferred by most of people. In electric bus system charging efficiency (if better than 60–84%) and a cleaner power grid helps to enhance the future benefits of electric buses. Thus the use of electric buses technology in urban public transportation fleets is increasing rapidly. All these aspects are estimated to drive the electric bus charging infrastructure market growth and demand during the analysis period.
Despite these advantages, financial factors, such as the greater costs involved with the shift to e-buses. The adoption of electric vehicles and the construction of the necessary infrastructure are expected to be hampered by a number of factors, including high upfront infrastructure costs, poor consumer understanding, false perceptions, and possible long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cities are trying to minimize pollution and traffic congestion are more interested in using electric bus. Electric bus potentially brings benefits such as lower maintenance cost, higher performance, lower emissions, and energy supplies. These factors are anticipated to boost the electric bus charging infrastructure industry growth in the upcoming years.
According to regional analysis, the Asia-Pacific electric bus charging infrastructure market accounted for highest market share in 2021 and is predicted to grow significantly in the projected timeframe. This is because in Asia-Pacific region, the use of electric bus charging infrastructure as a good alternative in transportation is under large-scale development as well as government funding schemes and growing demand for clean mobility for electrification of community transport as a result the number of electric bus charging infrastructure - buses in Asia-Pacific region is increasing rapidly.
Electric Bus Charging Infrastructure Overview
The establishment of a sufficient and effective charging infrastructure is a requirement for integrating the ecosystem of electric buses into the public transportation infrastructure. Two essential parts of the charging infrastructure are charging solutions and power infrastructure. Electric buses fully rely on commercial charging infrastructure, unlike other vehicle categories like cars and two-wheelers that may have "home" charging infrastructure that means charging points installed at domestic premises.
COVID-19 Impact on Global Electric Bus Charging Infrastructure Market
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought several uncertainties leading to severe economic losses in various businesses. This has ultimately lowered the demand for electric bus charging infrastructure due to disruptions in supply chain, closure of manufacturing plants, as well as economic slowdown across several countries. In addition, the import-export restrictions were laid down on major electric bus charging infrastructure producing countries such as the U.S. and Europe.
For instance, U.S. electric bus manufacturers witnessed the most severe impact of COVID-19 in 2020. Moreover, the electric bus faced the highest impact in terms of sales and acquisition of new projects due to which the electric bus charging infrastructure demand reduced significantly. Several electric bus projects were postponed or cancelled due to shortage of raw materials, labors, fear of contracting the COVID-19 virus among workers, as well as travel restrictions.
However, disruptions in the exports of automotive parts from China as well as closure of automotive assembly and manufacturing units have hampered the electric bus charging infrastructure market share during the pandemic. For instance, in September 2020, NFI Group Inc. is one of the world's top independent global bus manufacturers, has provided two pilot buses to Metro Transit as part of a contract given to New Flyer for 14 Xcelsior CHARGE battery-electric, sixty-foot heavy-duty transit buses. To support the deployment, Bi-State Development, the operator of Metro Transit, granted New Flyer Infrastructure Solutions TM an $8.72 million contract for the development of battery-electric bus charging infrastructure. These initiatives are predicted to drive the electric bus charging infrastructure market size during the analysis timeframe.
Advancement of E-Mobility Services and Increase in the Number of Electric Buses Likely to Drive the Market Growth
E-mobility is now regarded as the most promising technology for lowering transportation exhaust emissions. Electric buses are rapidly replacing traditional diesel-powered buses. Various governments throughout the world are taking initiatives to replace their petroleum-based bus fleets with electric bus. To increase the usage of electric vehicles, some countries provide incentives and impose limitations. Several key drivers have fuelled the worldwide electric bus charging infrastructure industry, most notably rising government funding schemes and greater government objectives for mainstream bus electrification. Furthermore, governments are implementing various programmes to encourage the usage of green energy-powered electric buses. In Shenzhen, the public transportation system was able to reduce its use of fossil fuels by 95%. The CO2 emissions from Shenzhen's e-buses were reduced by 15-20% even after accounting for emissions from the National Grid of China.

High Investment Involved With the Deployment of Electric Bus Charging Infrastructure Systems to Restrain the Growth of the Global Industry
High initial investments necessary for fast-charging infrastructure, as well as the requirement for more advanced batteries are some of the constraints that may limit market revenue growth to some extent. Charging time for electric bus is longer than charging time for fossil fuel bus, particularly for Level 1 and 2 charging, there is no uniformity in charging compatibility. This electric buses are more expensive than fossil fuel-powered buses. These are all major factors that could impede revenue growth in the electric bus charging infrastructure market.
Regulatory Measures and Government Push to Create Sustainable Public Transport Infrastructure across the World to Foster the Growth of Electric Bus Charging Infrastructure
In recent times, electric bus have a number of potential benefits over standard diesel buses along with these environmental advantages, e-buses can also minimize running costs, increase passenger comfort (by lowering vibration), reduce noise pollution, help stabilize the grid through vehicle-to-grid applications, and improve energy efficiency through lower fuel and maintenance costs. Global urban transitions municipal bus fleet electrification offers a chance to lower greenhouse gases in the transportation sector while also providing benefits to the towns and nations to switch towards electric bus. To overcome the challenges to electric bus acceptance, innovative approaches and bus implementation will be required.

Source: Research Dive Analysis
The on-the-go sub-type is accounted to have a dominating market share and fastest growth in 2021. On-the-go charging can assist buses to run constantly. Due to the fact that the stop in the middle of an unfinished trip, on-the-go i.e. on route charging is a time-constrained procedure. It eliminates the need to return to a depot for prolonged periods of time to charge, on-the-go charging enables electric buses to run longer on the road. This is to be the best option for routes for buses that travel farther distances and cannot take extended breaks for charging. The fact that on-the-go charging is typically performed at greater power rates (up to 500kW), which is faster but may result in expensive utility demand charges and higher operational expenses.
Global Electric Bus Charging Infrastructure Market Trends, by Charging Type
Based on charging type, the market has been divided into on-board and off-board. Among these, the off-board sub-segment accounted for highest revenue share in 2021.
