The market will undergo slow growth due to fluctuation in oil prices. The typical lifetime costs of air compressors are divided into its maintenance costs, equipment & installation, and energy costs; of which energy costs about 75%. This is due the high demand for fuel to run the machines. Fluctuation in oil prices will lead to increased costs for operating the machines which in turn may hinder the portable air compressor market growth.
