2014-2021 Trolley Bus Outlook Compared to 2022-2029 Forecast

Public transport is growing substantially nowadays in Europe owing to the growing concerns over pollution and traffic congestion. Europe Trolley Bus market has grown with a CAGR of 2.6% during the historic period of 2014-2021. This growth is expected to perceive optimistic changes in the forecast period owing to the growing demand.

Europe Trolley Bus Market expected to create an absolute dollar opportunity of US$ 162.5 Mn in the forecast period 2022-2029.  End consumers are inclining towards less greenhouse gas emission solutions owing to the rising concern over environmental warming. End users are giving preference to low noise and low emission transport solutions. Trolley buses have no emission and less operational noise. Additionally, the stringent laws for the emission reduction of harmful gases in Europe, are estimated to create the demand for Trolley Buses.

Which Recent Trends Are Impacting Trolley Bus Market?

Environmental regulation norms and increase in traffic congestion in Europe is pushing the sales of trolley buses substantially. As, trolley buses doesn’t require huge batteries henceforth it would be the ideal choice over the electric buses. Demand for in motion charging vehicles has increased tremendously in recent years. Owing to the low cost, less energy consumption, robust technology and other benefits are pushing the market.

In general, expenditures in public transportation are combined with policies aimed at reducing the use of private automobiles, particularly in metropolitan areas. This is mostly accomplished through reforms and car-free zones in city centres. This tendency has been seen prior to the pandemic, particularly in capital cities and other large metropolitan areas. The recovery approach appears to be in line with previously implemented regional and national strategies. For example, in France, the Climate and Resilience Bill proposes to create and expand low-emission zones in cities, but in Spain, a reform initiative aims to minimise the use of traditional private automobiles.

Further, over the last couple of years, manufacturers are mainly focusing on manufacturing electric Trolley Buses that can only operate with continuous electric power. Due to conventional trolley buses cannot operate while taking a turn on narrow a street. For this, prominent manufacturers invented a dual-fuel-operated trolleybus system, which is highly efficient as compared to the conventional trolleybus. Focus on public transport in the urban context to replacement of individual cars and development of the cycling infrastructure

What are the Key Opportunities for Trolley Bus Market?

Rising Concern Towards Smart City and Proposed Investments for Emission Less Passenger Transit Buses Expected to Create Opportunities in the Forecast Period. In every country, the government focuses on making the city smart owing to the rising technological advancement. London, Paris, and Berlin, among others, are considered as smart cities of Europe. To reduce the emission level of gases such as NOx, in these cities, governments are proposing several electric vehicle projects to come out from the dependency of fossils fuel.

According to the statistics of WIT Press, diesel-operated buses emit nearly 18.6 gm Nox per kilometer while Trolley Buses emit only 1.2 gm NOx per kilometer. Therefore, the adoption of Trolley Buses can be considered as a smart move to create emission less environment. In the trolleybus market, prominent players are collaborating with small players to purchase small components or parts of the trolleybus, which is expected to create adequate market opportunities in the forecast period. European governments are also funding for innovative transport projects in model cities. And, promoting bus fleets to reduce traffic congestion.
