Market Share by Fuel Type

The electric and hybrid fuel type segment are likely to observe rapid growth in the Middle East and Africa bus market in the upcoming years. This can be attributed to the increasing focus by governments in the region to switch to sustainable fuels. Fuels such as petrol, gasoline, and diesel and are becoming more expensive and also lead to harmful emissions, resulting in push for alternative fuel types.

 

Technological advancements in electric and hybrid bus technology and expansion of charging infrastructure for such vehicles will further support the growth of the electric and hybrid bus segment in the overall bus market. Countries such as Saudi Arabia and South Africa have already deployed several electric buses, while Egypt, among others, have more deployments planned.

 

Market Share by Length

Buses with lengths 8 to 10 metres are expected to account for a larger share in the Middle East and Africa bus market because of their growing popularity among users and ease of manoeuvring. These lengths of buses provide better mileage in comparison to other types of buses. They can seat anywhere between 30-60 passengers.

 

With the reasonably compact size of the 8-10 metre bus, it is easier for drivers to move around smaller towns and cities in the Middle East and Africa. More drivers are also available for such buses, as compared to larger buses which require experienced drivers. As such buses are relatively standardised, purchasing 8-10 metre buses is easier and less expensive. All these factors help the bus of this length to dominate the market and contribute to the growth of the overall market as well.
