Buses: United States

This report forecasts to 2023 US bus demand and production in units. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of: Type C school buses; Type A, B, and D school buses; transit buses; motor coaches; and other buses such as shuttle, sightseeing, and tour buses.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2008 to 2018; production and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2008, 2013, and 2018.

This report excludes most buses derived from light vehicles and minibuses designed to carry eight or fewer passengers, as well as separately sold chassis. Demand figures also exclude sales of used buses.

Published trade figures are volatile and do not line up with trends in demand and production because of the inclusion of used buses, separately sold chassis, and products outside of the scope of what is traditionally considered a bus (e.g., microbuses, vans). Hence, the net export numbers presented in this report were developed using information from national governments, industry trade groups, motor vehicle associations, and a variety of other organizations.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
