Key Factors for Success in the Septic Tank Truck Market will be Increased Differentiation and More User-friendly Specification Processes

DUBLIN, Ireland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (

has announced the addition of Tank Truck Body Manufacturing for

Vacuum/Septic Applications in North America to their offering.

The manufacture of truck bodies for vacuum and septic tank applications

in North America is a diverse product segment in the truck body

manufacturing industry. These units can be very simple, hauling septic

waste, to very complex, for cleaning sewer systems and collecting dry

and wet hazardous waste.

Among companies producing septic units, there are many regional

manufacturers and even companies focusing specifically on supplying just

tanks to the market, leaving the upfit to their distributors. Within the

sewer cleaning and vacuum loader categories, there are just a few

players manufacturing these expensive units. Based on the approximate

number of final trucks, this application represents an activity of

around $500 million for body fabrication companies in the industry.

Going forward, the key factors for success increasingly will be

differentiation and more user-friendly specification processes for the

final truck. Steel, at present, appears to be on its way to be

completely phased out for portable toilet and septic tank markets, which

do not require DOT-coded units.

Additionally, gas prices are directly affecting the profitability of

septic and sewage service companies, and manufacturers must vary their

offerings to meet this challenge. Customization is necessary to satisfy

all aspects of the marketplace, but at present standardized products

from leading manufacturers still lead in the more expensive product


These and other issues are analyzed in this report, to provide a

perspective on the industry structure and dynamics of this specialized

vocational segment.

SCOPE & METHODOLOGY defines the coverage of the report and outlines the

methodology, assumptions and sources used in compiling the research.

The ANALYSIS begins with a quantification of production estimates and

competitive shares for vacuum and septic tank truck/bodies (coded vacuum

tank trucks, jetter tank trucks, non-code portable toilet tank trucks,

non-code septic tank trucks, sewer cleaner tank trucks, vacuum

hydro-excavator tank trucks, and vacuum loader tank trucks) in units and


Production shares are further shown by geographic area, since many

companies operate in a defined radius from plant locations, due to

transportation costs. Multi-plant facilities are singled out.

The above data is then used to provide a review of the competition,

followed by a discussion of the most recent developments and trends. An

assessment is made of the specific drivers that directly impact demand,

as well as external factors, such as economic, technological and

environmental influences, bearing on demand.

This is rounded off through a brief evaluation of the main applications,

customers and/or channels.

The analysis is then drawn together with underlying assumptions to

provide a succinct view of the outlook and forecast for these body types.

Industry Structure & Manufacturer Data is a tabulation that correlates

employment, plant size and sales at each company, to arrive at a bird's

eye view of the underlying industry structure. Web addresses of

manufacturers are provided as a convenience to users wishing to access

additional information on each company.

Finally, the size of the universe of vacuum and septic tank bodies is

analyzed in units in use, as found available from official sources.

Company Profiles, based on a mix of interviews and/or other information,

seek to describe company operations in a way that adds immeasurably to

the overall understanding of this industry. All identified players in

the United States and Canada are featured as a Profile, with the larger,

more important companies carrying a higher degree of detail.
