The global optical sorter market size is expected to experience significant growth in the next few years. An optical sorter is a machine that sorts things automatically based on visual criteria. Optical sorters, also known as sorting machines, are commonly encountered in manufacturing and food processing facilities. They are utilized to discover flaws and distinguish between different types of products. Optical sorters evaluate products that have been singulated and presented to the viewing area using reflected light. Low-friction inclined chutes or conveyor belts can be used to create this singulation. The reflected light is narrowed down to specified wavelengths by specially engineered optical filters, emphasizing the distinction between the accepted and rejected products.

The optical sorter market share is segmented on the basis of by type, application, and region. On the basis of type, it is cameras, lasers, nir sorters, hyperspectral cameras & combined sorters. On the basis of application, it is divided into food, recycling, mining, other. 

COVID-19 scenario analysis: 

The worldwide quarantine imposed in response to the COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in an economic catastrophe that has thrown practically every business into disarray. The optical sorter industry has been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak and dissemination. Based on input from various industry experts at various stages of the optical sorter value chain, as well as financial releases from various companies in the market ecosystem for the year 2020, it was estimated that the size of the optical sorter market growth will decrease from 2019 to 2020. 

Fast-food outlets and restaurants have been forced to close across the globe due to statewide lockdowns, disrupting consumers' food-shopping patterns. As a result, food companies are reaching out to vegetable processors to assist them in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic's issues. As a result, the capabilities of optical sorting and steam peeling machines, in combination with other processing technologies, are being highlighted, which may prove to be advantageous during the epidemic. In response of COVID-19's long-term implications, governments are attempting to address the problem by enacting beneficial initiatives and policies such as financial packages, lower interest rates, and tax exemptions. Despite the world's efforts to find a COVID-19 breakthrough, the optical sorter market is expected to rebound to a great level during the forecast period.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers, and Impact Analysis

Businesses can improve their performance by eliminating errors and increasing efficiency by using automation. Several sectors are focusing on automation in order to speed up procedures while maintaining product quality. These industries are able to eliminate manual labor, increase hygiene, and speed up procedures due to this strategy. Growing automation in main optical sorter target industries, such as food, recycling, and mining, is seen as a favorable indicator for market expansion. Innovative and clever technologies have been used to manage and minimize specific waste, such as food and plastic waste, in recent years. Optical sorters may now affect product quality, increase yield, and better understand parts of processing processes due to recent improvements in sensing technology and intelligent software. Despite these developments, producers still face a number of problems, the most significant of which is the complexity of operating optical sorters. To address these issues, new software is focusing on user-friendly machines that provide processors the ability to set rejection requirements. Optical equipment, in addition to becoming more sophisticated, are also becoming easier to use. 

Optical sorting equipment is expensive as it uses modern technologies. Although optical sorters improve process efficiency and final product quality, their high initial cost may prevent certain potential end users with tight budgets. 

The global optical sorter market trends are as follows:

Rapid growth in food industry

Optical sorters are projected to be used most extensively in the food processing industry. Optical sorting is an automated technique for separating agricultural seeds, grains, nuts, coffee, confectionery items, fruit, meat, and seafood. Optical sorters aid the food business in reducing the danger of contamination from any foreign material; hence, improving food safety on the manufacturing line, among food processors, and among manufacturers. The increased desire to increase production capacity by reducing delivery and processing time is driving the demand for optical sorters in the food industry. Additionally, governments in various regions are becoming increasingly concerned about food safety. Sensor-based optical sorters can detect and eliminate foreign material, undesirable rot, greening faults, blemishes, and damage on a continuous basis. This results in increased yields as well as a safer, higher-quality final product for consumers. These technologies contribute to increased usage of optical sorters in the food industry by helping to improve food quality and safety. By automating the entire food processing and producing food of the highest quality and safety standards, the sorting machines enhance processing capacity and minimize labor costs.

Increase in demand for camera-based optical sorter

As camera-based optical sorters are more precise and can detect minute flaws in items, they are favored in a variety of applications. Food sorting applications commonly use cameras to sort vegetables and fruits, dried fruits and nuts, cereals, grains, and pulses. Monochromatic, dichromatic, and trichromatic cameras with the ability to detect minute violations in products both within and outside of the visible light spectrum are available on the market, based on flexibility.
