Global Food Sorting Machines Market 2017-2021
About Food Sorting Machines
Sorting is a process of separation of various materials based on specific criteria such as color, size, texture, and others. Food sorting machine is equipment used by food processing companies for sorting or segregating food products such as dry and packaged food items, fruits and vegetables, dairy products, fats and oil, fish and seafood, meat, and others. Food processing companies use sorting machines to maximize the yield and reduce the wastage. Food products are segregated on the basis of various parameters such as shapes, size, color, image, and weight. The sorting helps in identifying and removing food contaminants and foreign materials (FMs) from food products. Various FMs that can be removed by sorting includes metals, stones, insects, glass, and others. Based on the product type, the food sorting machines can be categorized as automated food sorting machines and mechanical food sorting machines. Based on technology, the automated food sorting machines can be further categorized as laser sorters, camera sorters, and x-ray sorters.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Mergers and acquisition by food sorting machines manufacturers. Over the years, there has been an increasing trend of mergers and acquisitions by food processing equipment manufacturers. The manufacturers are doing so to increase their competitive advantage, geographical presence, improve customer base, and increase the product portfolio. The larger firms in the market will try to acquire the small-scale manufacturers to eliminate the competition.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Need to enhance food safety. Food safety and quality is one of the biggest concerns among the food processing companies worldwide. The freshly produced raw materials such as grains, fruits, and vegetables may contain germs and other microorganisms. Many different disease-causing germs present in the low quality or deteriorated raw materials can contaminate foods resulting in many foodborne infections.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Volatile prices of raw material. The prices of the food sorting machines largely depend on the price of raw material, such as stainless steel. There have been high fluctuations in steel prices over past few years. For instance, during the period 2014-2016, owing to the oversupply of iron ore, there was a downward pressure on its price. China is the leading manufacturer of steel in the world. The steel industry is one of the major cause of air, water, and soil pollution in China. The strict antipollution rules in China has led to reducing the capacity of steel sector by shutting down steel mills. It has resulted in decrease in the supply of steel around the world and also increased the steel prices. For instance, the average price of stainless steel in January 2017 was around $2,400 per metric ton, and it increased to over $2,500 per metric ton in February 2017.
