Historic to Future Pathway Analysis

The growing food packaging creates an ample amount of plastic waste contaminated with other materials which are to be separated. Similarly, to properly segregate paper waste for paper pulp, the demand for the reject separator increases, resulting in increased sales.

  • Short-Term Growth Projection: Rising government emphasis on waste management and separating organic waste contaminated with plastic waste reject separator is preferred.
  • Medium-Term Growth Projection: Countries such as Slovakia, Poland, and Greece, create high demand for the market, in order to, better manage and separate waste.
  • Long-Term Growth Projection: Development of technologically advanced machinery to play a key factor in the long-term market’s growth.

Over the 2018-2022 historical period, Europe reject separator market registered a CAGR of 2.6%, and according to the Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 2.0% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.

Europe reject separator market forecast by Fact.MR

Market share analysis of reject separator based on form and country is provided in a nutshell in the above image. Under the capacity segment, the upto 60 TPD sub-segment is estimated to reach a market share of 34.0% in 2023.

“Growing Plastic Recycling to Supplement the Market’s growth”

Growing plastic waste recycling to drive the market's growth. As plastic waste needs to be segregated based on its thickness. Further, packaged food is gaining traction, and due to this, food waste is also contaminated with plastic. Hence, in order to segregate them reject separator has a high demand.

The growing plastic recycling, for instance, in 2020 more than 10 million tonnes of post-consumer plastic waste was sent for recycling. About 90% i.e, 9.1 million tonnes of plastic waste was treated in the EU27+3 to create 5.5 million tonnes of post-consumer recycled plastics. The huge plastic recycling plants employ reject separators to reject other materials from the target material. Thus, driving the market's growth.

Further, plastic packaging trash and rubble from farming, gardening, and agriculture activities have high rates of recycling. Since 2018, these applications are recording the largest boost in recycling stakes: +4% points each. In addition, household plastics packaging waste recycling even raised by 7%.

These wastes are primarily sorted and for final sorting reject separators are used which eliminates the need for further sorting and also saves material loss in sorting. Such measures augment the market's growth.

“Cost a challenge: to be breached”

Reject separator cost high as compared to the traditional practices followed for sorting out. Due to the high cost, plastic waste management facilities or waste paper pulp screening and sorting outlets find it difficult to purchase and maintain the reject separators, it is only afforded by government organizations or private giants.

Thus, the market is in a nascent stage, with the availability of rental solutions and reselling approaches that can reduce the high-cost challenge upto some extent for new market entrants in waste paper pulp management, willing to enhance their presence.

Country-wise Insights

What are the factors driving the market’s growth across Germany?

The German paper packaging industry has generated US$ 13.6 billion in revenue. Thus, the flourishing paper packaging industry also contributes to paper packaging waste contaminated food waste.

In order to, separate food waste and other waste reject separator plays a crucial role. Thus, mushrooming paper pulp and paper packaging industry creates huge waste, and to manage and screen the same the demand for the reject separator increases over the period.

Why is the UK reject separator market expected to be extremely worthwhile?

The UK market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 0.8% from 2023-2033 and to be valued at US$ 36.5 million in 2033. The presence of major market players in the country adopting various strategies to gain high-profit margins from the growing waste paper pulp managing and recycling industry.

They have upgraded the product to ensure quality and durability with performance. The reject separator is integrated with a specially developed rotor creating a centrifugal force in the operation of rotation at high speed and backwash water relives pulp effectively.

The reject separator has the benefits of reducing fiber loss, low power consumption, and enhancing finished paper quality. The advancement in reject separators fuels the demand for the product in the UK market.

Why is the demand for “Upto 60 TDP” reject separators increasing?

Based on the capacity, the market is bifurcated into upto 30 TPD, upto 60 TPD, and upto 90 TPD. Upto 60 TDP accounts for the major market share and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 2.3%. The segment has a positive historic growth outlook. The growth is attributed to the fact that upto 60 TDP falls under the standard category and is highly supported by the currently available facility infrastructure. Such measures are to bolster the segment's growth.

How do paper and pulp producers spur the market’s outlook?

For waste paper pulp in the coarse screen system, reject separators are used to separate impurities and relieve fiber for tailing. Less fiber loss and low production costs are two advantages, resulting in upsurged demand for the reject separators.

Post-treatment there is no moisture in the coarse slag and also less fiber in the treated coarse slag after treatment, the cost of additional slag treatment is hence reduced.

Further, to assure the goodness of the slag discharge and realize the effective separation of waste residue and pulp, a specially designed rotor with low friction force is used.

Integrated with a flushing water pipe to decrease fiber loss and basket blockage. Such advancements and reject separators' effective performance in paper pulp waste screening fuel its demand for paper pulp screening driving the segment's growth over the years.
