22 manufacturers analyzed and aggregated into an analytical framework to define a $1.1 billion segment of the truckbody industry.
Includes Excel database for market size and competitive share breakouts-units and dollars for all manufacturers.
The report is a rigorous investigation and analysis of manufacturers and markets for refuse truck/body production in the United States and Canada, providing estimates of market sizing, key segmentation, demand factors, trends and outlook for each of four refuse truck body types:
Refuse trucks are in strong demand, resulting from aging fleets, new emissions requirements, and pick up in core demand resulting from growing confidence of municipalities to enter into long-term waste management contracts.
The refuse truck segment of vocational truck manufacturing is an industry unto itself. With 22 producers in the USA and Canada, this report aims at quantifying the market size and sub-segments for the four types of refuse trucks/bodies, to present an aggregate view of refuse collection vehicles/equipment. Manufacturing activity ranges from regional one-product specialists to national brands that have most, if not the entire spectrum, of the identified product mix in their offerings. There is evidence of interest by larger companies in crossing over and adding to the product mix through acquisitions; such consolidations are expected to continue in this industry.
The product mix of refuse truck types in use is changing, with front loaders and automated side loaders growing in popularity. The increase in the versatility of the front loader truck with a can attachment has allowed its use in residential waste collection and has been a prime driver of this change.
2020 shipments were estimated to have declined by ~8% over 2019 due to Covid19. Waste management companies experienced a decline in commercial waste volumes in the latter part of the first quarter and the first part of the second quarter of 2020 because of the closure of offices, malls and business establishments. This decline was offset in part by the increase in residential waste volume as a significantly larger share of the population took to working from home. Consequently, manufacturers experienced a reduction in demand for non-residential waste collection vehicles (primary front loaders) in 2020.
The report provides a vista view of this vocational segment. Many smaller players at local/regional level participate successfully in this activity, but complicate the market size and competitive analysis picture, compared to the handful of national manufacturers.
The report can be put to immediate use for sales and market planning, M&A identification, competitive share analysis, alliances and technology transfer considerations.
