Market Synopsis


Reciprocating compressors use the positive displacement compression principle, which generates air pressure through two sides that provide either suction or discharge. They are suitable for compressing small amounts of air to high pressures and quickly dissipating the heat from compression. Such compressors are designed for round-the-clock industrial service with minimal long overhaul intervals and maintenance cost.


The factors driving the demand for reciprocating compressors are growing exploration and production activities in the oil & gas industry and rapid development of the industrial sector. Over the last century, air compressors are a primary factor in the rapid expansion of industrialization on a global scale. Most of the crucial technologies that have transformed the human experience in recent decades owe their evolution to air compressors. Using air compressors, several factories across the industrial sector can mass-produce at speeds that would be impossible if the tasks were solely in human hands.


As countries outside the G8 are developing local industries to compete regionally and internationally, the adoption of air compressors is spreading rapidly throughout the Far and Middle East, along with most of the Southern Hemisphere. Over the next decade, these regions could quickly become lucrative markets for air compressor manufacturers. Compared to the developing regions of the world, industrial air compressor trends are less prominent in North America and some parts of Europe. As the recent industrial air compressor market analysis indicates, the issue comes down to economic factors. Regardless of which regions lead the way in the industrial air compressor industry report, the technology continues to be used in a vast range of industries.


Segmentation: Global Reciprocating Compressor Market
Reciprocating Compressor Market


The global market for a reciprocating compressor is segmented based on type, product, cooling, portability, output power, stage, end use, and region. By product, the global market has been segmented into horizontal and vertical. By type, the global market has been segmented into oil-free and oil-lubricated. By cooling, the global market has been segmented into air-cooled compressor and water-cooled compressor. By output power, the global market has been segmented into up to 100kW, 100kW–300kW, 300kW–500kW, and above 500 kW. Based on portability, the global reciprocating compressor market is segmented into stationary and portable compressor. Based on stage, the global reciprocating compressor market is segmented into single-stage and multi-stage compressor. Based on end use, the global reciprocating compressor market is segmented into oil & gas, chemical & petrochemical, power generation, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, metals & mining, and others.


Geographically, the reciprocating compressor market has been segmented into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. The reciprocating compressor market in Asia-Pacific is estimated to account for the highest share, where rising industrialization would drive the growth of the reciprocating compressor market. The construction industry is enjoying hefty profits from Asia-Pacific, as the governments are supporting industrialization in emerging economies to increase the GDP of the countries in the region. Furthermore, the FDI and FITs in the nations such as India, China, Singapore, and South Korea, are encouraging new entrants to enter the market. Due to these factors, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest market for reciprocating compressors during the forecast period.
