A VSD (variable speed drive) controlled device offers effective energy saving. It involves an AC drive that controls the speed of the unit, and thus avoids additional energy consumption when compared to a fixed speed equivalent. It reduces motor service requirements, supports leakage detection and extends motor life cycle. As of December 2012, only about 5% products were controlled by VSD across the globe.

Industries such as manufacturing are adopting cost-effective production techniques in order to drive profitability. Rising demand for these systems from effective energy distribution application owing to cost optimizing features is also a veritable driver.

Global oil-free air compressor market share is characterized by a large number of players offering low-cost solutions. Key raw materials involved in manufacturing include copper, steel, and aluminum. Continuous hike in raw material prices is forecast to have negative impact the market growth through the next seven years. The demand for copper, aluminum, and other raw materials is likely to increase over the years due to escalating usage of these materials in various applications and products.

Growth in retrofitting activities, efficient operation, favorable oil-free air compressor price trend, and rising adoption of variable-speed products will present attractive growth opportunities.
