Market dynamics


The India color sorter market growth has been highly motivated by the agricultural sector. Based on the technology used by the color sorting machines, the market is amazingly driven by the refined demand of several product innovations and increased investment in the field of the agro-food processing industry. Another remarkable factor that is driving the growth of the India color sorter market outlook is the rising absorption of technologically supported machinery armed with sensors that reduce the workload in the agricultural sector. We all know that most of the population of India is dependent on the agriculture sector for earning its live hood so the growing demand and magnification in investments for advanced equipment and machinery in this huge agricultural sector are responsible for Indian color sorting market growth. The quality standards set by the government for safety, hygiene, and high quality of food products and the ascending research and development in the agriculture sector are also some of the major factors that are driving the growth of the Indian color sorting market.


Most of the people involved in agriculture activities are illiterate and they have been carrying out their works with old fashioned methods and they are not able to cope up with new technologies. And if they somehow manage to understand the basic thing, they are not able to develop perfection in their working skills. So, the absence of skilled labor is one of the major factors restraining or hampering the color sorting market growth. The second factor that is acting as a barrier in the growth of the color sorter market is the high cost of machinery. On an approximate basis, one color sorter machine costs 27 lakh and most of the workers can't afford it. The third major restraint is that if a person managed to buy a color sorter machine, it has to be maintained every month and that maintenance cost is very high.
