Published Date : Jun 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category : Others

In terms of revenue, the global sortation systems market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

The global sortation systems market valuation is expected to reach US$ 2 billion by 2027, the growing e-Commerce industry has transformed the process of order fulfilment and sortation, which is projected to drive the growth of the sortation systems market.

Sortation systems are used to sort or consolidate packages as per requirements of the distribution sector. The usage of sortation systems aids in achieving improved efficiency of order fulfilment processes. Furthermore, owing to a surge in the number of e-Commerce orders, the sales of sortation systems are likely to increase. Warehousing companies are aiming to transform their simple storage space into multi-functional facilities. To achieve this, these companies are automating picking, sorting, and other such processes. These emerging trends are likely to influence the sales of sortation systems positively, and expand the market 1.6X of its current value by the end of the forecast period.

North America to Remain Largest Consumer of Sortation Systems

The North America accounts for nearly 35% of the global sortation systems market, and is projected to continue its prominence throughout 2027. The U.S. accounts for 90% of the North American market. However, the market Canada is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. This growth is expected to result from the implementation of automation and smart warehousing solutions for warehouse operations in the region.

End Users Inclined toward Highly Flexible and Efficient Automated Sortation Systems

Sortation systems play an imperative role in improving the order fulfillment and material handling capabilities of logistic service providers. Owing to significant advancements in technology, different types of sorting systems such as tilt-trays, cross-belts, narrow-belts, and sliding-shoes, among others, are available. However, with a collective market share of ~61% in 2019, tilt-tray and cross-belt systems are expected to remain the most sought-after sorters over the forecast period (2019-2027).

Tilt trays have gained significant popularity across the food & beverage and e-Commerce sectors, as they provide highly secure automated sorting. Further, the design of a tilt tray is relatively simple, and does not involve a lot of moving elements. Owing to these benefits and high return on investments provided by tilt trays, this segment is set to grow at a CAGR of ~5% during the assessment period. Despite the growing adoption of tilt-trays, cross-belt sorters are set to dominate the sortation systems market, as they are capable of handling different types of products, have the best sorting rate, and produce low noise levels. However, due to steep initial investments required to install tilt trays and cross-belt sorters, small- to medium-sized businesses are leaning toward economical alternatives such as narrow-belt sortation systems.

Shaping the Course of e-Commerce

The e-Commerce industry is set to assert its dominance in the sortation systems market, accounting for over 30% share over the course of the forecast period. In the current scenario, the adoption of pouch and pocket sorters is on the rise, owing to their exceptional capabilities of addressing a host of challenges faced by e-Commerce players involved in the durable consumer goods and fashion business, especially related to cost-savings. With growing affinity toward the use of polybags for packaging, the demand for reengineered shoe sorters is expected to move in an upward trajectory in the near future.

Key Findings

  • Cross-belt sorters are the most preferred sorters for high-speed applications, and are forecast to account for US$ 700 Mn by 2027. Cross-belt sortation systems are considered apt for product handling and processing different packaging formats, making them suitable for e-Commerce applications.
  • The up to 5 kg segment in the sortation systems market accounts for a majority of the market share in terms of value. These are used most prominently as most parcels and couriers weighing less than 5 kg. The segment is likely to expand 1.3X its current value, and generate an incremental opportunity of US$ 160 Mn in the following five years.
  • Warehousing companies prefer high-throughput sortation systems, which are capable of processing above 15,000 units/hour. However, companies with less load tend to go for mid-rate sorters. Thus, 5,000-10,000 units/hour sortation systems are projected to clock a CAGR of ~6%, and reach US$ 380 Mn by 2027.
  • The e-Commerce and logistics industry cumulatively are expected to account for 50% of the global sortation systems market share, as automation has been observed as a key trend in warehousing. This industry is expected to create an incremental opportunity of US$ 200 Mn by 2023.
