Waste Sorting Robots Market Research, 2031

The global waste sorting robots market size was valued at $1.7 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $10.1 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 19.6% from 2022 to 2031. Robots have become an integral part in almost every industry. Robots have become an integral part in almost every industry. Robots are capable of performing various tasks very effectively and efficiently. Robots have also been used in waste management systems. Robotic arm is a programmed device, which is capable of performing tasks that could be performed by human hand. Robotic arm is widely used in waste management system to separate waste according to type of waste such as industrial waste, plastic waste, and residential waste. By using robots, further processes on waste such as recycling can be carried out.

The use of robotic arm has proved to be very effective in waste management process. The robotic arm performs all the processes, which are included in the separation or sorting of the waste. Robotic arm first detects the type of waste and then selects that waste. After this process, it locates the place for that specific type of waste and puts that waste in that place. The robot for waste management system is so designed that the robot which consists of two hands is capable of sorting 4000 selection per hour, which is more than the number of sorting a human can do. Large amount of waste is produced from different industries, businesses and also from the residential areas.

Considering the increased amount of waste in many countries across the globe, an effective waste management system must be present for proper disposal or recycling of that waste. Many countries use robots for the sorting of the waste. The efficiency of the robot is much more than the human. This major factor is anticipated to boost the growth of waste sorting robots market.

Waste Sorting Robots Market by Waste Sorting Type

The popularity of plastic products sorting is growing significantly, owing to pollution concerns. Plastic waste is a major issue of the time, which provides lucrative opportunities for manufacturers, for sorting, processing and recycling of plastic. In addition, the major players such as ABB Ltd and AMP Robotics are focusing on product launches and business expansion to cope with the rising environmental concerns regarding the waste.

Waste Sorting Robots Market by End User

The rising demand for municipality solid waste management owing to the increased waste generation from the urban population is expected to result in increased demand for waste sorting robots.

The demand for waste sorting robots decreased in the year 2020, owing to low demand from different industries due to lockdown imposed by government of many countries. COVID-19 pandemic led to shutting down of production of various products in the waste sorting robots industry, mainly owing to prolonged lockdown in major global countries. This has hampered waste sorting robots market growth. The major demand for equipment and machinery was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, and China, which is badly affected by the spread of corona virus, thereby halting demand for equipment and machinery. Equipment and machinery manufacturers need to focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond toward immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19 infection cases start to decrease.


Waste Sorting Robots Market by Region

North America region accounted for the largest market share in 2021, and is expected to witness significant growth rate in the coming years. Increase in infrastructure, surge in urban population, and increase in waste management reforms in emerging markets (such as India and China) are projected to boost demand for waste sorting robots market. For instance, urbanization in India grew at a rate of 1.34% from 2020 to2021 and generated a 62 million tons of municipality solid waste. The Asia-Pacific  is growing at a significant CAGR, owing to initiatives such as waste to fuel and waste to energy are expected to cater to market growth. In addition, rise in environmental awareness toward waste recycling had led to huge demand for waste management technologies in Asia-Pacific. 

The waste sorting robots market is segmented into waste sorting type, application, end-user, and region.  By waste sorting type, the market is categorized into plastic products sorting, metallic waste sorting, wood and bricks sorting and others sorting. In 2021, the plastic products sorting segment dominated the global market, in terms of revenue, and metallic waste sorting is expected to maintain this trend in the coming years. On the basis of application, the  market is fragmented into waste sorting and recycling. Recycling is anticipated to grow throughout the forecast period. On the basis of end-user, the market is categorized into municipality and industrial. Municipality segment dominated the market.  By region, the waste sorting robots market share is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America accounted for the largest market share in 2021, and Asia-Pacific is expected to witness significant growth rate in the coming years.
