Screw Compressor Market Overview

Screw compressor market is expected to mark valuation of USD 16771.21 Million, at 5.7% CAGR through 2022-2030.

When constant demand for air is required then screw compressors can be used. Screw compressors are twin shaft lobe machines that rely on the principle of positive displacement with internal compression. You can categorize screw compressors as intermittent motion compressors which can further be categorized into medium flow and medium based compressors. It is widely used because the screw compressors can be used continuously with less fluctuation in internal pressure.

Screw compressor market value is in high demand due to its energy-efficient compressors, low operation and maintenance costs. It is also noted that the expansion of screw compressors in the Asia Pacific will be driven by the growing demand for energy in China and India. As per IBEF electricity usage in India is projected to reach 15,300TWh by 2040 from 4897TWh by 2016. To drive the compressor Government to invest a high amount in power grid infrastructure. The Chinese government is also investing some amount in power grid infrastructure.
