All refuse collection vehicles essentially perform the same function-collecting and transporting residential, commercial and industrial waste to a landfill or waste treatment or recycling facility. The main differences between product types are (1) the side of the truck on which the refuse is loaded, and (2) the degree of automation of the waste collection operation.
Product types included in the report are front loaders, automated side loaders, manual/semi-automated side loaders, and rear loader refuse trucks, as well as recycling trucks.
The demands placed on refuse trucks are severe-frequent starts and stops, heavy loads, short runs, narrow streets, heavy power requirements, urban traffic and the rigor of driving through landfills. Therefore a refuse truck chassis needs to be designed with special heavy duty features not generally found on other heavy duty trucks.
Alternative fuel propulsion technology is generating considerable interest in the refuse truck industry. The push for natural gas and other alternative fuel-powered trucks is coming from all stakeholders. The share of CNG-powered trucks in new orders has been on the rise in the last few years, and most manufacturers are working to improve their product offering in this category. The government, on its part, is playing an active role by providing incentives for purchase of alternative fuel-powered trucks.
SVN has identified twenty-three manufacturers of refuse truck and recycling bodies in North America and has presented estimates of 2013 production/sales in units and at market values, as well as an overview of the broad competitive picture-including standings of key manufacturers-and the demand outlook for the industry through 2018.
These and other topics are the subject of this report from SpecialtyTransportation.net (“STN”). The report can be put to immediate use for sales and market planning, M&A identification, competitive share analysis, alliances and technology transfer considerations.
