  5. 5. Executive Summary—Top HD Transit Bus Market Performance The global market softened across the board in 2012, and North America and India showed moderate growth in transit bus sales while China and Russia experienced decent growth. H&E HD Transit Bus Market: Top Regions Unit Shipment, Global, 2011 and 2012 6.7% China (8.8%) Europe India 3.5% North America 2.7% Latin America (9.7%) 5.8% Russia 0 10 20 30 40 50 Units (000s) 2012 2011 Note: Heavy Duty (HD) Transit Bus: 8T and above or 10m and above. 60 • Robust demand from Tier II cities and new BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) services have helped sustain market growth in China. • Sovereign debt crisis and austerity measures across Europe weakened transit bus demand. However, subsidies were extended to green energy buses. • Despite slowdown in second half of the year, the Indian transit bus market experienced a marginal yoy growth. The slowdown is expected to continue through 2013. • North American bus industry showed recovery on the backing of replacement orders and federal push for green mobility. • Slowing Brazilian economy, coupled with Euro V introduction impacted transit bus sales. However, there was a recovery in the last quarter. • Russia’s urban passenger mobility space saw major push in wake of rising congestion and the modernization drive by fleets.
