Friday, April 9, 2021 9:33 AM

Investments in the development of urban centers, with smart city projects and research into automobile electrification are key trends that are creating a solid foundation for minibus manufacturers.

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / April 9, 2021 / The global minibus market will exhibit moderate growth rate over the forecast period, 2021-2031, finds Fact MR in a new study. While rapidly rising expenditure on urban construction & public transportation infrastructure remains a key growth drivers, the introduction of smart city projects and advances in automotive technologies are spurring the adoption of minibuses globally. Further, minibuses are finding growing use in recreational applications, wherein seating and accessorizing customizations are gaining interest.

"Minibuses are a highly preferred mode of public transport as several million people are reliant on them for daily commutes. The demand has risen strongly in recent years with substantial impetus from China, India, Mexico and Brazil, owing to relatively faster population growth in these countries and government initiatives to improve transit between rural regions and cities," says Fact.MR in its recent study.
