* India - Original equipment manufacturers' bus market share likely to double on safety norms, GST

 -- Introduction of more safety parameters in manufacturing of buses and implementation of GST are likely to double the market share of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) such as Tata Motors, Ashok Leyland, Mahindra & Mahindra, Swaraj and Eicher Motors in the bus manufacturing segment in the next four-five years. These companies expect a two-fold jump in their bus volumes, which is expected to put their market share in the range of 40/45% in the next four-five years from 20% now... The total annual bus sales volumes in India are between 70,000 and 76,000 units... Among the various segments in the bus manufacturing industry, OEMs' market share is expected to show exponential growth in the high tonnage bus since the present market share is at 10%. This is likely to boost margins for OEMs once the proportion of fullybuilt buses increases in comparison with the chassis sold to the unorganised private fabricators for bus building...
