Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is public bus seating innovation to aid elderly commuters. It is common in the city transit buses to have few seats reserved for elderly commuters be occupied by non-elderly commuters. This causes inconvenience to the senior citizens traveling in city buses.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is high investments in bus transportation by governments. Buses are one of the most convenient and popular modes of transportation in cities. For instance, as of 2016, more than 1.6 million buses were registered in India of which the public sector operates about 170,000 buses transporting about 70 million people per day. This leads to the increased need for funding for capital investments in the development of proper infrastructure, vehicles, and technologies to support the increasing travel demand.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is reducing the weight of seat while increasing the safety features. While considering automotive seating systems, consumers still prefer comfort and safety features. It is a major challenge for the OEMs and suppliers to measure and provide convenient and seating comfort along with increasing demand for safety and functional features in buses. The fuel emission regulation in Europe and North America has put enormous pressure on the OEMs to reduce fuel consumption, improve the existing mileage of vehicles, and develop innovative efficient new designs.
