The region is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 3.1% over the forecast period. Asia Pacific, predominantly strengthened by India and China air compressor industry, is expected to be the fastest growing region from 2016 to 2023. This can be mainly attributed to rising establishment of oil-refineries and petro-chemicals plants across Asia.

North America, dominated by U.S. oil-free air compressor market share, was valued at around USD 2.1 billion in 2015. Growth across the region can be credited to rising awareness for eco-friendly portable products.

Competitive Market share

Key industry participants include Atlas Copco, GE, Ingersoll Rand, Bauer Group, BelAire Compressors and Kaishan Group. Major players are focusing on new product development in order to gain competitive edge. For instance, in 2015, Atlas Copco launched UD+ coalescing compressed air filters. It combines two filtration processes in one product. It also provides efficiency gains, energy savings and reliably.

Moreover, in the same year, GE Energy introduced Gas Compression Power Packager program to offer authentic Waukesha parts along with trained service technicians.

Oil-Free Air Compressor Industry Background

Compressed air supports numerous manufacturing processes. The amount of air level required for efficient and effective production forms a vital factor in containing compressed air energy. Raw material suppliers provide steel, brass, copper, aluminum, nickel, rubber, and thermoplastic materials. A few inputs are supplied directly as raw materials and processed by the suppliers, whereas some suppliers engage in primary processing and provide component parts to the manufacturers as per the company specifications.

Distribution is crucial to manufacturers’ success. The physical distribution of products is concentrated to a number of distribution centers and the delivery efficiency of these is continuously monitored. Transport efficiencies can save the customer time and costs while reducing the environmental impacts of their own operations. Companies such as Ingersoll Rand have distribution centers worldwide to enhance the production efficiency. Smarter packaging may reduce the fuel requirement for transport.

Different types of materials are used during the manufacturing process including steel, which needs huge amount of energy and water. Additionally, different types of waste are also generated during the process; recycling this waste is crucial for environmental benefits. However, global organizations may face difficulty in some countries, which may not have proper infrastructure to support recycling needs. For instance, Atlas Copco designs its products to be disassembled easily for recycling. They also buy back old products to repair and resell ensuring no usable part is wasted. The company has also worked in many communities to create and improve the recycling facilities.
