The stationary air compressor market led the global industry and is anticipated to gain a market share of over 95% by 2027. Their consumption will be escalated by the swift industrial advancements in the Asia Pacific region driven by the extensive usage of compressed air in almost all manufacturing activities. Stationary air compressors are used in a wide range of applications including in refrigeration & air conditioning systems, automobiles, and industrial usage. The size & capacity also varies according to the usage with automobiles, refrigerators, and air conditioners using smaller ones while industrial end-users mostly use the medium & larger ones.

Rotary air compressors are anticipated to be the fastest growing compressor technology

Rotary air compressor industry is estimated to witness 4% CAGR through 2027. The demand for rotary air compressors has been increasing in the last decade on account of its advantages such as lower installment & maintenance costs and higher efficiency. Manufacturers have been investing heavily in developing rotary compressors that provide higher capacity with lower energy consumption. This segment has been further divided into screw, scroll, and other rotary types such as vane, lobe, etc. Rotary screw air compressors will have the highest growth rate among these three owing to their low initial cost, reliability, better heat resistance, and easy & low-cost maintenance.

Screw compressors have been replacing piston compressors by their lower surging of flow, continuous operation, and higher capacity. The scroll compressor market will be augmented by its higher energy efficiency when compared to screw compressors.

Oil filled lubrication in compressors will likely be the primary lubrication system

Oil filled air compressors will dominate the overall industry and account for a volume share close to 60% in 2027. These compressors are bulky in nature and highly durable due to efficient lubrication. Moreover, these products are capable of delivering compressed air with higher capacity and are broadly utilized for heavy-duty applications by their durability and design. Growth in the manufacturing sector will create huge scope for the oil filled air compressors segment as the product is extensively used in production plants along with energy and oil & gas sectors.

Home appliances to be the leading application

The home appliances segment is the most noteworthy application area for air compressors growing with a CAGR of around 3.5% by 2027. Robust economic growth, urbanization, and rising income level of consumers in developing countries will drive the household appliances industry. Air compressor market demand for home appliances application in Asia Pacific will also be high through 2027 impelled by the increasing production in China, India, Japan, and South Korea.
