The top three application segments of the global waste sorting robots market are discussed below:

Global waste sorting robots market by polyethylene products sorting

There are many types of polyethylene products that cause pollution to a great extent. For instance, marine life is highly affected by polyethylene products waste. Removing plastic products from waste is highly challenging as some of the harmful products such as sleeve labels, PET trays, and microbeads are difficult to be removed manually or with the help of waste sorting machines. Waste sorting robots are developed using sensors, machine learning, and artificial intelligence technologies through which each recyclable part can be easily detected.

According to Sushmit Chakraborty, a lead robotics research analyst from Technavio, “Sensors in robots are used for detecting and placing products at their pre-defined place. Robots are programmed to perform the separation of different materials even when these products appear in a bulk of waste. Hence, the global waste sorting robots market by polyethylene products sorting is expected to increase in terms of adoption rate during the forecast period.”

Global waste sorting robots market by metallic waste sorting

Metallic waste sorting is unsafe for human workers; however, by using waste sorting robots, industrial costs can be controlled to a large extent. Waste collected from different sites has a huge amount of metallic waste that needs to be removed separately. Metallic waste consists of metallic articles in all shapes and sizes, which makes sorting very challenging.

“With the help of waste sorting robots, a major chunk of metallic waste reaches the desired destination. Using cameras, sensors, and infrared detectors, metallic particles are separated from stone, wood, and concrete particles. The combination of sensor control and real-time robot control easily detects and separates all the metallic particles into separate bins,” says Sushmit.

Global waste sorting robots market by cans sorting

Cans sorting is one of an essential application where waste sorting robots are utilized. With the rise in population and change in lifestyle, fast food consumption is increasing, giving rise to a lot of waste generated in the form of cans. Cans are generally made up of aluminum that can be reused later by industries without investing in the procurement of new cans. When cans are disposed of as waste, they are generally not in the desired shape.

Steel cans are sorted by waste sorting robots using the laser scanning technology, whereas aluminum cans are sorted by a metal detector circuit arrangement; other types of cans are sorted with the help of sensors installed within the robots. Through these technical advances, robots can simultaneously sort different types of cans from the waste.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • ZenRobotics
  • AMP Robotics
  • Waste Robotics
