What is Optical Sorter? How Big is Optical Sorter Market Size & Share?

  • Overview

An optical sorter is a device that automatically sorts objects based on visual criteria. Optical sorters are often found in manufacturing and food processing facilities. The rapidly rising demand for the optical sorter market can be attributed to the fact that it finds blemishes in products and removes unsatisfactory items from the manufacturing process. These flaws may be merely superficial, or they might indicate that the product is defective or unsafe.

There is a rising demand for products from food packers, cultivators, and food processing units for optimum sorting systems of items by minimizing wastage. It also reduces the process and delivery time required for sorting food items. They are used for discovering flaws and distinguishing between different types. These sorters use reflected light with specified wavelengths to emphasize the distinction between rejected and accepted products.

Recent trends influencing the market

Wide usage in processing harvested goods to drive the market

  • Pharmaceutical production, tobacco processing, nutraceutical production, mining, garbage recycling, and other industries use optical sorting technology. These methods continue to be widely used in processing harvested goods such as potatoes, fruits, vegetables, and nuts. They offer non-destructive inspection which is advantageous in these end-user sectors where maintaining good quality is crucial.
  • Another critical factor fuelling market demand is the increased desire to reduce delivery and processing times. Optical sorting helps enhance product quality, maximize throughput, and increase yields lowering labor costs compared to human sorting, which is arbitrary and unpredictable.

Segmentation assessment

  • The food segment is anticipated to be the most significant revenue grosser

Based on application, the food segment is anticipated to be the most significant revenue grosser. Optical sorter market demand is on the rise as it aids 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 manufacturers. The escalating desire to increase production capacity by reducing delivery and processing time drives demand for optical sorters in the food market.

  • Hyperspectral cameras and combined sorter segment is expected to dominate the market

Based on type, the hyperspectral cameras and combined sorter segment is expected to dominate the market. Optical sorter market trends include this technology improving the removal of foreign material and EVM extraneous vegetable matter, often with meager fall reject rates. Detection of rock minerals and detecting foreign substances in food processing are the most employed hyperspectral imaging technique.
