Global Waste Sorting Robots Market 2017-2021
About Waste Sorting Robots
Getting rid of waste has become a challenge for the society, thereby affecting the safety and sustainability of the eco-system. If not handled carefully, garbage is either incinerated or stacked in different places, causing harm to the environment and the people. The traditional method that is used for separating waste not only increases the chances of health hazards to the human workforce but also gives rise to air, water, and soil pollution. Hence, recycling and reusing waste has become essential. Waste sorting robots are automated machines that are replacing the traditional ways of sorting waste. These robots are autonomous intelligent units deployed for waste processing and recycling in industries.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global waste sorting robots market to grow at a CAGR of 17.31% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global waste sorting robots market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Waste Sorting Robots Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global waste sorting robots market: ZenRobotics, AMP Robotics, SADAKO TECHNOLOGIES, and Waste Robotics.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bollegraaf, HOMAG, and TOMRA.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Pairing humans and robots for effective waste sorting. Sorting recyclable and non-recyclable waste is a process that cannot be accurately done by humans, considering the huge amount of waste collected in end-user facilities. Sorting materials such as plastic, glass, metals, and paper is a tedious process that cannot be done accurately by humans. Robots are precise and efficient, but achieving accuracy with robots alone is a challenging task. Hence, manufacturers are developing new methods for improving accuracy in sorting waste.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Use of robots for ensuring safety in waste sorting process. Safety in solid waste collection and separation is a major issue. Despite the adoption of the best safety practices, accidents and injuries to human workers can still occur in different processes involved in waste collection and separation. To reduce the risk of injuries and accidents, manufacturers are developing robots for collecting and sorting waste. Robots receive instructions from operating systems for heavy lifting, dumping of waste, and separating reusable materials from waste.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Potentially high initial investment. Robots increase the productivity of a facility and reduce labor costs for end-users; but, this is achieved by a high initial investment cost. Purchasing waste sorting robots for short term is more expensive than hiring personnel or using other equipment for sorting waste. This initial investment can be a challenge for end-user industries where recyclable waste generation is considerably low or the industries that have a financial constraint. Maintenance cost of robots is another major issue for end-users.
