Growing Focus on Automation to Increase Productivity in Various Industries Has Fueled Market Growth

The optical sorter market is expected to grow from USD 2.6 billion in 2022 to USD 4.1 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 9.9% during the forecast period. Increasing adoption in the food industry for food processing activities and for reducing process and delivery time is expected to drive the optical sorter market and to promote new revenue opportunities for optical sorter manufacturers. Owing to the growing demand for food products across the globe, the food industry is increasingly focusing on reducing process and delivery times.



Furthermore, increase in wages of the manual workforce in various countries is also expected to raise the demand for optical sorter systems. To counter this, many industries are focusing on reducing manual labor while increasing automation is expected to increase the adoption of optical sorters in various industries in the coming years.

Market for belt platform for camera type optical sorters is expected to grow at higher CAGR during the forecast period

The market for belt platform for camera type optical sorters is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Conveyor belt recycling sorting systems are ideal for sorting mixed, piece, or shredded materials. The material (e.g., PET bottles, electrical waste, scrap metal, and household waste) is optimally distributed to the detection area via a fast-moving conveyor belt (or configurable belt speeds). Furthermore, the belt-type structure design provides a lower damage ratio for delicate food items. The materials are less likely to collide when transported horizontally by a uniform and stable conveyor. As a result, its damage ratio is significantly lower than that of a traditional chute-type color sorter.

Market for hyperspectral cameras & combined sorters for food application is expected to account for the largest during the forecast period

The market for hyperspectral cameras & combined sorters for food application is expected to account for the largest during the forecast period. It is further expected to grow at the fastest CAGR throughout the forecast period. HSI enables the detection of foreign objects in real-time, with pinpoint accuracy and dependability. Hyperspectral sensors are gradually being adopted by the food processing industry. When combined with machine learning algorithms, HSI sensors enable digital sorters to detect and remove foreign material automatically. The rapid and precise detection of HSI sensors detecting foreign objects in bulk food streams saves time and money. Objects found in food production lines include plastics, glass, wood, rubber, metal, stones, and other materials. All of these foreign materials can be easily detected using hyperspectral cameras and combined sensors.

Vegetables & fruits sub-application is expected to dominate the optical sorter market for food application throughout the forecast period

Vegetables & fruits sub-application is expected to dominate the optical sorter market for food application throughout the forecast period. According to Knoema data source, in 2020, the total Asian vegetable production was 990,043,085 tons whereas the total Asian fruit production was registered to be 568,539,336 tons. The vegetables & fruits production in Asia increased at a 2.08% annual rate in 2020. The vegetables & fruits production in Asia is further expected to increase with the increasing population in the next 5 to 6 years. Similarly, the vegetables & fruits import value in Europe in 2020 was USD 137.5 billion, and in Africa the vegetables & fruits export value was USD 16.6 billion in 2020. The rapid automation in APAC and African countries in the food industry is expected to propel the market for optical sorters for vegetables & fruits application in the foreseeable future.

Optical sorter market in Asia Pacific region to register highest CAGR between 2022 and 2027

The optical sorter market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing investments in automation by food, recycling, and mining companies, especially in China, South Korea, and India, are expected to be the key driver for the rapid market growth in Asia Pacific. Hence, with automation, the growing demand from food, recycling, and mining industries in Asia Pacific is expected to drive the optical sorter market during the forecast period. China is recovering rapidly from the manufacturing slowdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and South Korea, India, and Thailand are pushing for further automation. Asia Pacific’s high CAGR is due to developing countries like India and the Philippines, which have high GDP rates and attract investments in food, recycling, and mining industries from various countries. The Asia Pacific region shows the highest potential for revenue generation in the optical market during the forecast period, and this is mainly due to the recent advancements in optical sorting machines by Asian companies such as Hefei Meyer Optoelectronic Technology (China), Hefei Taihe Intelligent Technology Group (China), Angelon (China), and DAEWON GSI (South Korea). Due to the growing deployment of optical sorting solutions, the Asia Pacific region is catching up with the North American and European regions in terms of market growth.
