Stationary air compressor market has been witnessing fast technological breakthroughs owing to increased investments by manufacturers in the research & development of newer and better products. Rising energy costs and regulations limiting the energy consumption of industrial equipment have led to the development of energy-efficient products. These products need lesser amounts of energy to run resulting in lower greenhouse emissions and increased energy savings. For an instance, Kaeser Kompressoren redesigned and launched a series of energy-efficient rotary screw compressors that could reduce energy costs up to 26% from the original design decreasing its life cycle cost. Such technological developments will contribute to the stationary air compressor market growth over the forecast period.

The product availability with multiple fuel options that can provide a varied range of supply pressure is another technological advancement that is likely to augment the industry growth. Products with design features that reduce maintenance cost have also gained popularity in recent years. Such innovations and enhancements in the industry are likely to continue in the future and will boost the product demand for a variety of industrial operations.

The product size is a key factor restraining the stationary air compressor market growth. The product size tends to increase with increased capacity. Bulkier size results in higher amounts of noise and air pollution along with problems related to space limitations. Larger machines are also less efficient than smaller ones leading to higher energy consumption, thus hampering the market growth in future.
