Air Compressor Market Scenario


Air compressor market is expected to grow at ~7.5% CAGR during the forecast period.


Global air compressor market has witnessed gradual growth in recent years, and is expected to witness phenomenal growth in the forecast period. An air compressor is a device that converts power generated through electric motor, diesel or gasoline engine into potential energy and stores in a form of pressurized air, i.e., compressed air. This conversion is achieved by compressing the air present within, which is released on quick bursts. Some of the most commonly used methods of air compressor are negative displacement, and positive displacement technologies.


Rapid industrialization in emerging economies, is the prime driving factor for the global air compressor market. The advent of energy efficient models of air compressors, which are also available in portable designs, has extensively been adopted by industries across the world. The recent technology promises substantial reduction in maintenance costs, which is why it is received by a large number of consumers, hailing from diverse industrial backgrounds. However, for those who are stuck with more conventional models are continuing to deal with noisy operations of oil-free compressors and lubrication concerns in oiled air compressors.


Industrial development, since the past several years, post-recession, has ensued in the increased income levels in the developing regions. Subsequently, population, in major countries across the globe, is also on the rise. This had led to increasing surplus income, which in turn, fuels the demand for various daily use and comfort goods. Increasing income levels, coupled with the ability and willingness to by home appliances, result in newer and compact models paired with user friendly modes of operation. This will further improve the air compressor market.


Global air compressor market has been segmented based on product, technology, lubrication, end-use and region. Based on product, the market has been segmented as portable, and stationary. Among these, the stationary type, is projected to dominate the air compressor market through 2023. Extensive use of stationary machineries in end-use industries, such as manufacturing, home appliances, and automobile is expected to enhance the air compressor market in the future. Based on technology, the market is segmented as rotary, reciprocating, and centrifugal. Rotary dominated the market in 2016, and is projected to be the fastest-growing technology segment for air compressor. Rotary air compressors are highly efficient and low on maintenance cost. Based on lubrication, the market has been segmented as oil free and oil filled. Rising food safety and security grades due to infections, hazards, and food contamination, will drive the oil free air compressor market demand in the forecast period. Based on the end-use, the market has been segmented as home appliances, food & beverage industry, oil & gas industry, energy industry, semiconductors & electronics industry, manufacturing industry and healthcare industry. Considering value, home appliances segment holds the maximum share in the global air compressor market and will grow at an exponential rate in the future. The product finds the maximum application in the air conditioners, refrigerators, and tires for inflation. Increase in demand of home appliances, in developing countries, will further boost the air compressor market.


Air compressor industry is expected to have a large number of advancements over the forecast period, owing to continuous developments in end-use industries and the growing disposable income. The market is also expected to have expansion activities by multinationals and well-established companies.
