The global bus chassis market was estimated at US$7.493 billion in the year 2020. A bus chassis is an essential component that is used to support the load and provide structural support to the bus. The bus chassis includes the wheels, brakes, axles, suspension system, engine, etc. The chassis of the bus should be well developed and stronger with good load-bearing capacity so as to properly support the bus body under both static and dynamic conditions. There has been an increase in the usage of public transport and guided tourism services in some countries in the European Union and Brazil due to the fact that the bus manufacturers are increasing the production of buses to increase their fleet size, which is causing the demand for bus chassis to rise, thus resulting in the growth of the bus chassis market.

Furthermore, the increasing investments and participation of market players in order to improve the quality of bus chassis and to increase the production of buses further is also going to bolster the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, on August 1, 2019, Daimler announced that they had received a purchase order for a 44 Euro VI bus chassis from Transit Systems, which is an international transport company based in Australia. On April 5, 2018, Volvo Buses announced that they and Famco Al Futtaim Auto & Machinery Co (FAMCO) had received an order of 143 units of the B11R bus chassis from Dubai, which was the first time the Euro VI-compliant buses would be used in the Middle East. Also, these buses would be equipped with the latest technologies like Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and fleet tracking.

The bus chassis market has been segmented based on axle type, bus type, and geography. By axle type, the market is segmented as two-axle and multi-axle. The market is divided into bus types such as single-deckers, coaches, double-deckers, and others.

Single axle to hold a significant share

By axle type, single axle buses are expected to dominate the market owing to the fact that this is the most commonly used axle in the manufacturing of bus chassis.

Single Decker bus to hold a significant share

Single Decker buses have a single deck for passengers and are equipped with two axles generally. By bus type, single-decker buses are expected to hold a substantial share owing to the fact that these are used most commonly for the transport of passengers in rural as well as urban areas and for applications such as coaches, school buses, and short-to medium-distance travel.

South America will remain a key market for bus chassis

By geography, South America is expected to hold a significant share in the market owing to the fact that the production of buses increased in Brazil from 20,463 to 28,536 from Q4 2017 to Q4 2018. In addition, in most of the EU countries, production increased from 8,285 to 9,626 from Q4 2017 to Q4 2018 (Source: OICA).

Some of the major companies mentioned as a part of this report are MAN, AB Volvo, and Daimler.

Key Developments:

  • August 2022- Ashok Leyland unveils a ground-breaking 13.5m bus chassis. A new platform with a larger saloon designed for high-speed intercity travel is the 13.5m intercity bus chassis (4X2). Compared to the 12m intercity chassis, it provides 36 additional sleeping berths or a 20% increase in passenger capacity (30 sleeper berths). optimal comfort and space. The best Total Cost of Ownership is provided to clients by this best-in-class product with cutting-edge technology.
  • June 2022- The global market introduction of MAN Truck & Bus's electric bus (eBus) chassis has been announced. In 2023, the first eBus chassis prototypes are anticipated to be delivered, and series production is scheduled to begin in 2024. The eBus chassis will initially be made available by MAN as a two-axle intercity bus. The Lion's City E's electric central motor and dependable battery technology from the Volkswagen Group will be used by MAN in the creation of the eBus chassis. In addition to the NMC technology (lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt battery) from the Lion's City E, MAN will also deploy LFP technology (lithium-ferrophosphate battery) to suit the diverse needs of foreign bus operators in terms of the daily range, overall mileage, and cost.

Impact of COVID-19 on Bus Chassis Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic's effects are posing a variety of difficulties for the worldwide bus chassis market. Globally unprecedented levels and types of transportation and mobility limitations have been put in place as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Mobility habits and preferences are significantly impacted by physical distance. A lot of people will choose a mode of transportation that lowers the danger of illness. Owners of private vehicles will use them more frequently, whereas users of public transportation may switch to other modes like biking or walking.
