MarketsandMarkets noted that the Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. The market in APAC for bus seats holds the largest share in any region due to the fact that many Asian countries highly use the bus as a major mode of transportation. 

Many APAC countries are developing and the majority of the population in the region cannot afford a private vehicle like a car; hence they travel via bus. Moreover, many urban areas are densely crowded with population; hence to avoid large traffic congestion in the cities, people travel by buses to commute to work or reach any part of the city.
