Portable compressors are estimated to be the fastest growing segment

The portable compressors are anticipated to be the swiftest growing at a CAGR over 6% through 2027. Portable air compressors find extensive applications in industries where compressed air demand is in multiple locations within the plant site. Growing oil & gas extracting and mining operations, rising number of offshore rigs of oil, and increasing construction endeavors in developing countries will boost the portable industrial air compressor market demand.

Reciprocating compressor technology is likely to grasp a substantial revenue share

Reciprocating compressor technology is set to hold more than 8% of the market revenue share in 2027. These compressors are commonly used in industrial applications to power pneumatic tools and equipment where power required is less than 30 hp. Reciprocating compressors are being slowly substituted by the rotary types in the last few years because of the better performance and reliability of the latter. However, their demand in industrial applications is expected to continue in the future on account of their lower cost and performance, enhancing technological developments.

Oil free compressors are projected to be the swiftest lubrication type

The oil free industrial air compressor market is estimated to surge at 6% CAGR from 2021 to 2027. Oil free industrial air compressors offer cost-effective operations to industries and are employed in end-use industries including electronics, food & beverage, etc. Various government regulations are also supporting these cost-effective operations. For instance, the government of China has introduced strict norms for environment protection, which have eventually increased the demand for energy-efficient equipment.

Energy & mining application is likely to clutch a considerable market share

The energy & mining industry is predicted to capture market share of over 10% by 2027. Rapid technological developments in power generation equipment, liberalization & privatization of electricity generation in many countries, establishment of new power plants, refurbishment of existing power plants, and the adoption of energy-efficient plant models will drive the global power generation sector resulting in higher industrial air compressor demand.

North America to witness solid development

The North America industrial air compressor market is anticipated to see growth rate of above 5.5% CAGR through 2027. The U.S. manufacturing industry is poised to grow at a steady rate by the end of the forecast period. The major driving factor for the growth of the manufacturing industry in the U.S. is advancement in technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. These positive trends in the U.S. manufacturing industry will drive the demand.

The industrial air compressor market is relatively consolidated due to number of abundant players involving Doosan Portable Power, Rolair Systems, Atlas Copco, Gardner Denver, Sullair, Bauer Compressors, Kaeser Kompressoren, Ingersoll-Rand, Ciasons Industrial, Aerzener Maschinenfabrik, Elgi Compressors, Hitachi, Heyner, Sullivan-Palatek, Emerson Climate Technologies, Frank Technologies, Mat Holdings, and Quincy Compressor.
