A few key factors driving the growth of this market are growing focus on automation to increase productivity, increasing need to reduce process and delivery time in the food industry, rising labor costs, and emerging stringent government regulations regarding food safety.

New York, Dec. 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Optical Sorter Market with COVID-19 Impact, by Type, Platform, Application And Geography - Global Forecast to 2025" -

The Optical sorter market for freefall platforms expected to hold largest share during the forecast period
The Optical sorter market for freefall platforms is expected to hold largest share during the forecast period.Freefall based platforms are most suitable for food (nuts and berries as well as frozen and dried fruits, vegetables, potato strips, and seafood) and waste recycling applications.

The advantages of a freefall sorter in comparison to a belt sorter is its lower price, size (occupies a smaller area), and the absence of moving parts such as the belt, which contribute to its low maintenance.

Optical sorter market for recycling application expected to grow at the second highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025
Optical sorter market for recycling application expected to grow at the second highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025.In recent years, many developed and developing countries have introduced specific recycling and environmental performance targets aimed at encouraging people to recycle waste.

Optical sorters sort reusable materials by separating them from the waste stream and which can be used as raw materials for new products. In the recycling industry, the NIR type of optical sorters is extensively used to sort waste materials, such as mixed plastics (PET, PP, PVC, and others), mixed paper, glass, construction and demolition (C&D), and municipal solid waste (MSW) materials.

North America to account for largest size of optical sorter market during forecast period
North America to account for largest size of optical sorter market from 2020 to 2025.This is due to the presence of major players such as Key Technology (US), Satake (US), National Recovery Technology (US), and CP Global (US) in the region.

In North America, automated sorting is an important technology for many food processing operations.The presence of strict regulations regarding food safety is another factor driving market growth.

Recycling is another major application area in North America, mainly due to the focus on waste management in the US.
