The reciprocating portable air compressor market is anticipated to hold a considerable share and is likely to witness 7% CAGR through 2027. These products are majorly recommended to use in the industries where the required power to operate pneumatic tools and equipment is usually less than 30 hp. Owing to lesser efficiency and higher maintenance cost of reciprocating compressors, portable rotary air compressors are however expected to gain an increased market share.


Surging oil-free compressed air sales to foster the market revenue

Oil-free compressor segment accounted for considerable market share in 2020. Growing sales of oil-free compressed air in several industries such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and electronics, among others is boosting the segment growth. As oil-contaminated compressed air can lead to disastrous consequences during manufacturing in such industries, the oil-free compressors demand will be expecting significant growth.

The food & beverages application is anticipated to generate over USD 200 million revenue by 2027. Oil-free air compressors are widely used in this sector as it enables clean and efficient food processing & packaging. The growing inclination of consumers toward packaged food, which is also triggered by COVID-19, is slated to further augment the market size.

The portable air compressor market is projected to experience a significant traction from the European region, which will reflect a growth rate of more than 7.3% till 2027. The regional growth is attributable to flourishing industries such as food & beverages and automotive. The growing dominance of industry payers in Europe is also contributing to the proliferating market demand. For instance, in 2020, ELGi Compressors Europe, a part of ELGi, established its new regional headquarters in Belgium.

Some of the prominent portable air compressor manufacturers include Gardner Denver, Ingersoll, Atlas Copco AB, Kaeser Kompressoren, Ciasons Industrial, ELGi, Rand, and others.
