The flourishing global oil-free air compressor market is set to grow throughout the forecast spell owing to increasing energy efficient, compact and portable mechanisms driving the industry. The market is pushed higher due to the increasing technological upgradations and high-grade application of these products. One of the positive features of the product is its energy efficiency which not only saves money for the user but also controls the pollution levels. Use of energy on a large scale produces greater air emissions leading to environmental pollution. Reduction in the electricity usage for air compressors will result in significant improvement in air quality.

In current modern production and packaging facilities round the world, use of compressed air is often crucial, especially in the manufacturing processes. Regardless of whether the compressed air is in direct contact with the product or indirectly used to automate a process, offer motive power, or for packaging purposes, a clean, dry, reliable supply of compressed air is essential to maintain cost-effective and efficient production cycle. These factors will foster the global oil-free air compressor market demand in the forecast period.

The global oil-free air compressor market growth will come across a few hurdles owing to its slightly higher costs than the other available options. This is due to the compact design, new and upgraded technology and superior features of the mechanism. This factor can slow down the global product market growth in the forecast period.
