Swelling oil exploration activities are positively affecting the industrial air compressor industry sales

These industrial compressors will witness a steady growth in its consumption owing to its varied area of application. A heightened expanse in the mining and oil exploration activities are fueling the need for industrial air compressors around the globe. The large machineries and tools used during the mining activities require well equipped air compressors for smooth functioning, elongated durability and maximum lifespan. In addition, the worker’s safety in the aforementioned industries are given the utmost priority due to the harsh and extreme working conditions. To avoid any sort of exposure to the working staff the manufacturers keep in mind to provide sophisticated compressed-air technology that allows the workers with improved and sublime breathability. Moreover, developments in the energy and power generation sector will positively drive the air compressor trade in the near future. High potential in healthcare and energy sectors in Africa will further boost the industrial air compressor market demand.
 

Although with all its benefits, the industrial air compressors are a major source of industrial noise pollution. Owing to its complex design and the presence of numerous rotors and heavy components, the product tends to make loud noises during its operations. It may prove to be an obstructing factor in the market growth, since government bodies in various nations have created regulations concerning the noise levels emitted from these industrial compressors.
 

However, the industrial compressor manufacturers are investing heavily in their R&D activities for fresher and enhanced air compressors. Rising energy regulations and costs, restricting the energy expenditure of industrial machineries have steered the advancements of energy-efficient compressors. These compressors require minimum energy to function, subsequently lowering the green-house effects and improved energy savings.
 

Stationary compressors is projected to dominate the portable industrial air compressors

The stationary compressors are the most widely used as the same sized compressor and is capable of supplying more air at higher pressures when compared to the portable types. In North America, it was responsible for over 80% share in 2018. Stationary air compressors of smaller sizes are extensively used in automobiles, refrigerators and air conditioners while the larger ones are used in manufacturing and industrial applications. They are majorly used in industries where compressor mobility is not required. Furthermore, high growth in the Asia Pacific manufacturing industries will drive this segment’s growth. High consumption for agriculture and farming products in emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil, etc. will also augment the stationary industrial air compressor market revenue during the forecast period.
 

75 – 500 kW compressors wins the power race

The industrial air compressors are widely varied according to its power output. The market is bifurcated into up to 15 kw, 16 - 75 kw, 75 - 500 kw and more than 500 kw. 75 - 500 kw compressors are the most popularly used compressors due to its elevated reliability, flexible operation, reduced energy costs and high productivity. It also manages to maintain the clean and breathable air flow in harsh and extreme conditions successfully.
 

Rotary air compressors will continue to enjoy top spot

Rotary screw air compressors will have the highest growth rate of more than 5.5% in North America among the others. This is owing to its low initial cost, reliability, better heat resistance, and easy and low-cost maintenance. This segment has been further divided into screw, scroll and other rotary types such as vane, lobe, etc. Manufacturers have been investing heavily on developing rotary compressors that provide higher capacity with lower energy consumption which will also have a positive impact on the segment’s growth in the future period.
 

Oil-filled compressors are set to lead the industrial air compressor market share

The oil-filled compressors are extensively used in mining, quarrying and drilling operations to power pneumatic drilling equipment. Rising oil & gas exploration in North America and Middle East & Africa will expand the oil filled compressor usage in the coming years. The lubrication type is one of the commonly used in air compressors, growing with a CAGR over 5% in North America. These compressors find its application in various power plants such as nuclear, hydroelectric, thermal power plants and also in diesel-engine generators.
