Overview of the Global Bus Forecast

Macroeconomic analysis, by country, underscore the particular drivers affecting total demand for buses in each market. This macroeconomic analysis is generated by the world renowned Oxford Economics. LMC Automotive takes these numbers and generates total industry volumes in each market before attributing them across the brands available. From this, it generates both sales and production forecasts by group and marque.

Each quarterly delivery comes with its own Executive Summary, which highlights key economic developments, changes in sales and production by region, regional market shares of local OEM’s, together with the global geographical production footprint of the major OEM’s. In April each year, subscribers receive an Annual Review looking at developments in the sector and discussing the strategic positions of key players in the markets.
