Strict government regulations regarding food safety is a major factor driving the optical sorter market growth. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has set certain laws for ensuring the quality of food. These need to be very strictly observed to avoid inquiries from the FDA. Several businesses and companies are adopting innovative sorting machinery to meet the quality of their products. In addition, the Europe optical sorter market will witness a high growth of over 9% CAGR over the forecast time span owing to the rapid generation of e-waste. In the region, electronic & electrical waste is the highest growing waste. Recycling of these waste products has become crucial as it consists of several hazardous materials. For instance, recently in the UK, ANDRITZ MeWa, a plant builder in Germany, has built a WEEE plant that has implemented Sesotec optical sorters for waste management. The plant has been designed to process electronic & electric waste, recycled refrigerators, computers, and others.

In the optical sorter market, hybrid sorters are witnessing a high demand from the food industry. These are powerful sorters that use a combination of proven air separation technology and food safety optimized flap separation that sort acceptable products. The companies are developing these platforms owing to the growing demand for high hygiene standards to be used in wet or dry food processes. China and Japan are experiencing a high adoption of these advanced sorting solutions owing to the faster technological adoption and rising industrial sector. Industries are deploying fully-automated sorting technologies for carrying out the business operations and processes. These factors are providing several growth opportunities to the optical sorter market growth.

In MEA, the optical sorter market is gaining traction owing to the growing adoption of these systems in the mining industry. In the mining industry, these systems help in detecting & sensing the molecular composition of the materials & minerals such as gold, platinum, tanzanite, gemstones, and others. The systems allow the major mining companies to reduce mineral dilution, lower transport costs & strip ratios, optimize process flows, and remove containments, thereby driving the implementation of these systems and positively impacting the optical sorter market growth.

Some key players in the optical sorter market include Tomra Systems ASA, Steinert GmbH, Sesotec GmbH, Satake Corporation, Raytec Vision SpA, Pellenc ST, Newtec A/S, National Recovery Technologies LLC, Key Technology, Inc., Greefa Italia GmbH, CP Manufacturing, Inc., Buhler AG, Binder + Co AG, Allgaier Werke GmbH, A/S Cimbria, and others. The players in the optical sorter market are developing new and advanced solutions for competing in the market. For instance, in May 2018, Steinert GmbH introduced Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) camera technology in its NIR sorting unit, which is developed for the food industry. The machine helps detect differences between the chemical composition of a PET tray and PET bottle when sorting.
