Global Bus Pantograph Charger market is valued at approximately USD 1970.74 million in 2021 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 17% over the forecast period 2022-2028. The Pantograph charger is a roadside charging station with a roof spanning the roadway. Contacts from the overhead charger are lowered onto a pantograph when the bus approaches the charging station and connects to rails located on the vehicle's front roof. The market growth is driven by key factors such as growing strategic collaboration between charging solution providers and bus manufacturers and growing efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. For instance, in 2018, the Volkswagen Group subsidiary Electrify America in the US announced its intention to contribute USD 44 million to promote the Green City initiative in the city of Sacramento. China dominates the market for electric bus charging infrastructure, followed by Europe and North America. Furthermore, in November 2021, Siemens Smart Infrastructure made the announcement that it will supply the charging infrastructure, i.e., charging by on-board pantograph and contact hood with 100 and 450 kilowatts for 21 all electric low-floor buses in Leipzig. The accompanying contract was given to VDL Bus & Coach by Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe (LVB) GmbH, the city of Leipzig's public transportation provider. The connection is made possible in both systems by contact hoods. This means that the buses will be fitted with a pantograph that is movable bottom-up for charging, like a streetcar. Through the contact rails located in the hood, the car charges automatically. Moreover, growing government investments and their focus on improving charging infrastructure propel the market growth in upcoming years. However, reduction in charging time for electric buses impedes the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2022-2028.
The key regions considered for the global Bus Pantograph Charger market study include Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Rest of the World. North America is leading the market share globally, owing to several government initiatives and growing popularity of electric school buses across the country. However, Europe is the fastest growing region due to increasing adoption of electric buses across the region in the upcoming years.
