Optical Sorter Market Dynamics

Driver : Growing focus on automation for increasing productivity in various industries

Automation allows businesses to improve their performance by reducing errors and improving productivity. To accelerate processes and maintain the quality of the final products, several industries are shifting their focus to automation. This approach is allowing these industries to reduce manual work, improve hygiene, and speed-up processes. The growing automation in major target industries for optical sorters, namely, food, recycling, and mining, is considered as a positive indicator for market growth. Over the last few years, innovative and smart technologies have been adopted to manage and reduce specific waste, such as food and plastic waste. Automated sorting is becoming a necessary component of many food processing operations, and the demand for this technology is increasing to provide consistent product quality and traceability of all foreign materials. Hence, the demand for optical sorters is increasing in food applications for increasing productivity and reducing costs. For instance, in December 2020, Hubei National Treasure Bridge Rice (China) purchased 12 Meyer AI rice color sorters for its 500-ton rice production line. These optical sorters were sold by Meyer Optoelectronic Technology (China). National Treasure Bridge Rice has been purchasing Meyer rice color sorters since 2012 and has so far purchased 17 units. National Treasure Bridge Rice has unanimously recognized its excellent and stable performance after deploying automated optical sorters. The National Treasure Bridge Rice (China) company was named China's Top Ten Delicious Rice in December 2020. The rice production company decided to increase its production further and purchased 10 optical sorters in a row for the automation of its new production line and availed the optical sorters from Meyer Optoelectronic Technology (China). For recycling applications, automated and advanced optical scanning technologies can help sort mixed plastics into separate plastic streams for further processing into resins of higher purity. Moreover, in order to address the future waste management challenges, countries are incorporating various automated solutions embedded with smart sensors. Optical sorters can help in sorting the waste materials for their recycling. For instance, automation increased material recovery in Dom-Con companies (US). It also resulted in improved purity and reduced operating costs (OPEX) over time. Dem-Con Companies (US) installed a 22 tons per hour single stream and commercial Material Recovery Facility in November 2013.

Restraint: Requirement of high initial capital investment for implementation of sorting machines

Optical sorting equipment use advanced technologies and are, thus, priced at a premium cost. Though optical sorters help improve process efficiency and final product quality, their high initial cost can be a deterrent for some potential end users with controlled budgets. The capital investment for the deployment of optical sorters includes not only the price of the optical sorting machine, but also the costs of ancillary equipment such as the facilities for providing compressed air, dust removal, washing system, the cost of additional crushing and sizing equipment, and cost for optional equipment such as conveyors to feeders, sorting crates, containers, and conveyors from outlet to collecting containers. It also includes the system's overall installation cost. Food processing companies or other end users that are going to implement sorting machines in their facilities will have a longer ROI period for these machines owing to their high cost. However, since optical sorters help reduce labor costs and improve productivity, the use of these equipment helps companies to attain long-term cost savings.

Opportunity : Advancements in detection technologies and ease of operation

Recent advancements in detection technologies and intelligent software have enabled optical sorters to influence product quality, maximize yield, and better recognize aspects of processing operations. However, in spite of these advancements, manufacturers are still facing several challenges, mainly in terms of the difficulty of operation of optical sorters. To overcome these challenges, new software developments are focused on user-friendly machines that give processors the power to control specifications about rejections. In addition to becoming more intelligent, optical machines are also becoming easier to operate. Advanced statistics and data analysis tools are easily accessible to monitor performance parameters of optical sorters. Integrating data generated by optical sorters throughout the MRF (material recovery facility) into the main PLC (programmable logic controller) or SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) system makes monitoring groups of machines and adjusting mechanical separation equipment and optical sorters easier. For instance, TOMRA (Norway) includes a Sort-to-Spec feature in its machines, which allows the sorter to auto-sort for the color defects and size of food products such as French fries. The intelligent system analyzes the incoming product stream in real-time through algorithms and measurements, makes piece-by-piece decisions, and determines what is accepted and what is rejected. As such systems offer advanced functionalities and are easy to operate, they are expected to generate significant interest among end users in the coming years. Moreover, the efficient use of these advanced systems can further help in improving yield and minimizing waste. As a result, technological advancements are expected to drive the demand for optical sorters in various end-user applications.

Challenge : Difficulties in sorting plastic waste

Sorting technologies such as vision, infrared, and X-ray are capable of sorting different plastic products. Currently, sorting a more varied mix of plastics is becoming increasingly important to reduce contamination in bales and enable more commodity plastics to be added to the recycle stream. However, infrared sorting technologies have some limitations in terms of identifying and separating plastics that contain carbon black. The presence of the black pigment prevents the transmission of infrared light back to the sensor, owing to which infrared sorters cannot efficiently sort these plastics. Moreover, some plastic products, such as plastic pots, tubs, and trays (PTT), are difficult to sort as they are made of different types of polymers such as PS, PP, PET, PVC, and LDPE. These types of polymers cannot be successfully sorted in material recovery facilities (MRFs) without investing significantly in new equipment. Due to contamination issues, China stopped accepting the majority of recycled plastic products from the US in 2019. Contamination is a major problem for recycling plants. For example, putting food scraps (or any other non-recyclable material) in a recycling bin for plastics would contaminate any high-quality plastic that could otherwise be recycled and reused. In addition, plastics are recycled at a rate of less than 8.4%, which again creates an alarming situation for the environment. However, innovations in sorting technologies result in the availability of increasingly reliable detectors and sophisticated decision and recognition software that collectively increase the accuracy and productivity of automatic sorting, which increases the cost of equipment. When optical sorters are combined with the artificial intelligence (AI) technology and robotics, then the difficulties in sorting plastics and others can be overcome.

Camera-based optical sorters are more accurate and can detect minute defects in products; therefore, these optical sorters are preferred in various applications such as food and recycling. The camera sorting machines are the most ideal and cost-effective optical food sorting machines in the quick-frozen vegetable and fruit processing industry. The TOMRA’s (Norway) Blizzard, a free fall optical sorting machine is an example of a camera-based optical sorting machine with pulsed LED technology that is used for sorting frozen vegetables and fruits. Further, the RGB full-color series cameras are ideal for multi-color applications or minor shade variations. As a result, camera-based sorters are an ideal platform and series of sorters for detecting and sorting/separating by subtle shade and color differences, speck defects, foreign material, insect damage, mold, decaying product, and so on.
