Refuse Truck/Body Manufacturing in North America 2023

Publication Date: May 2023
Market Size, Competitive Shares, Trends & Outlook Underlying the Manufacture of Refuse Truck/Bodies in the USA and Canada

2022 Data, 2023 Outlook, 5-Year Forward Forecasts, 5-Year History


21 manufacturers analyzed and aggregated into an analytical framework to define a $1.4 billion segment of the truck/body 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:

Front Loaders
Automated Side Loaders
Manual Side Loaders/Recyclers
Rear Loaders


With 21 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. 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.


Refuse body manufacturing continued to be affected by chassis and other component availability through 2022. However, the industry reported growth in revenues over 2021 from higher prices.


Strong customer interest in EVs is driving product innovation and demand for electric refuse collection vehicles. Waste haulers are now recognizing the value of switching from diesel to fully electric refuse trucks. New product launches in this space include integrated electric refuse collection vehicles designed from the ground up and bodies with independent onboard battery power.


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
