The U.S. garbage truck bodies market size is expected to grow at a 4.9% CAGR during the forecast period. The U.S. has seen a significant rise in the garbage truck bodies market share in North America, owning to rising awareness of waste management among the populace. The push from the government is further enhancing the importance of proper waste disposal in the country's metropolitan cities. For instance, in September 2021, Madison City launched an awareness campaign regarding reducing food waste generated in the cities. Moreover, the growing adoption of connected vehicle technology and carbon neutrality initiatives will further fuel the country's market growth.


Growing Focus on Achieving Carbon Neutrality within the Waste Management Sector

The local governments in the country are targeting carbon neutrality for the collection of refuse in the suburbs and metropolitan cities by using alternative fuel technology or electric vehicle technology for refuse operations. Moreover, due to growing development in connected vehicle technology, it is witnessed that the trend of connectivity is now covering garbage and waste disposal trucks to improve the efficiency of operations. 


Government Initiatives Promoting Greener Alternative Garbage Truck Bodies to Drive the Market Growth in the U.S.

The government and various significant players are targeting the integration of electric vehicle technology in refuse collection trucks to reduce the carbon emission caused by garbage trucks. Incorporating electric vehicle technology offers advantages such as no noise and air pollution, lesser consumption of energy, and growing public awareness for the adoption of alternate fuel technology and electric fuel technology.

The government is addressing ending fossil fuel vehicles' dependency by switching to alternative fuels such as renewable Natural Gas (RNG) and electricity. For instance, in 2019, the City of Seattle launched a green fleet of garbage trucks for recycling, compost, and garbage trucks. The trucks are powered either on RNG or electricity to carry out their routine operations. Thus, rising government initiatives and promotion is expected to increase the U.S. garbage truck bodies market growth.


Lack of Trained Staff and High Risk of Health Problems Associated with Waste Collection to Hamper Market Growth in the U.S.

The waste management industry deals with a lot of hazardous and toxic waste, which requires proper disposal and segregation of the toxic materials to prevent any harm toward human life or the environment. Due to a lack of skilled workforce and less awareness among the waste staff toward safer solid waste treatment, most refuse collection workers are exposed to severe health conditions, thus creating an unsafe environment for work labor. For instance, in December 2021, according to a press release from the U.S. Department of Labor, the refuse collection and disposal industry is positioned 6th for the fatal injury rates of workers in America.


Regarding the competitive landscape, the companies profiled are McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing, Heil, and New Way in the U.S. market, owing to their strong distribution and supply network built over time. The major players focus on dominating regional and foreign markets by expanding their operations in solid waste management industry in domestic and overseas region.

Some other companies with a considerable presence in the U.S. market include Mack Trucks, Amrep, Curbtender, and others that focus on adding new products to their portfolio and increasing their regional presence. Moreover, several regional players are shifting toward electric vehicle technology as they recognize significant growth opportunities.
