Global Waste Sorting Robots Market Outlook 2016-2024

Market Overview

Waste sorting is done by robotic arm that detect, picks and places it separately using the sensor array. For effective implementation of waste management strategies, robotic has a leading role in fastening the process for further recycling and reducing the cost. A two arm robot can sort 4,000 picks per hour, showing the greater capacity than the human manpower. The rising population and their consumption are increasing the waste produced from various households, commercial areas and industries. Usual composition of garbage that people throw in are 5.8% metals, 3.5% glass, 12.9% papers, 1.6% plastic, 1.8% textiles and 53.7% biodegradables which means remaining 20.7% of the wastes is going to landfills. The advanced technology can help enhance recycling rates and divert useful resources away from landfill. In metal and mining industry, sorting robots can segregate metals, rare earth minerals and organic components from waste that can be used to manufacture products such as plastic and chemicals or to produce energy.

Goldstein Research analyst forecast that the global waste sorting robots market size is set to reach USD 12.24 billion by 2024 growing at a CAGR of 16.4% over the forecast years. The technological advancement, increasing waste from various sources, difficult processes of sorting, government regulation towards waste management, and growing recycling industry are some of the factors than will escalate the global waste sorting robots market as per the forecast.
