Compressor Market  Size & Growth (2021-2026):

The compressor market is expected at USD 38.20 billion in 2021 and is predicted to grow to USD 58.30 billion by the end of the assessment period. And is estimated to experience moderate growth to record a CAGR of 4.14% throughout the estimated period (2021-2026).

Compressed air is evolving with advanced technologies and will perform critical functions in various fields, such as robotics, large-scale applications, and household tasks. The widely used characteristics of air compressors in non-industrial activities are appreciated by the world, increasing the air compressor market. The air compressor is a piece of equipment used to convert electrical energy into kinetic energy using compressed air. Compressed air is a gas or gas mixture under extreme compression used to create energy that can be used in pneumatic gears like jackhammers or drills, etc. The popularity of air compressors is because air compressors are a renewable energy source. Stationary and portable are two types of compressors. There are currently two evolving technologies in the air compressor industry: Turbocor Technology - Turbocor technology offers an oil-free design with relatively more minor moving debris. It promises high productivity and consistency. Thermoacoustic Technology - These compressors are powered by a thermoacoustic motor and a positive displacement reciprocating compressor. 

Recent Developments:

In October 2020, Lontra announced that it has agreed with Blade Compressors® LLC, a division of Industrial Air Centers based in Jeffersonville, Indiana (USA), to be the national distributor of Lontra Blade Compressors® and Lontra products and services that will arrive in North America. . This agreement marks the beginning of Lontra's distribution journey, bringing its new technology package (the LP2 Blade Compressor®) to the industry on a global scale. In addition, blade Compressors LLC will coordinate and manage regional distributors in North America to provide nationwide sales and service coverage for Lontra products.

Market Drivers and Restraints:

The main factor that is increasing the demand for air compressors is the rapid industrialization in developing economies. The rapidly rising demand for energy-efficient air compressors from manufacturers worldwide is driving the growth of the market. In addition, the increasing use of air compressors in the food industry due to strict government food safety regulations is expected to drive market growth. Furthermore, technological advancements in air compression methods have a strong influence on the compression capabilities of the equipment. They, therefore, are driving the development of the air compressor market during the forecast period. In addition, the increase in the adoption of rugged and energy-efficient devices is also predicted to raise the demand for air compressors in the firm. In addition, the rise in GDP and the changes done in the population's standard of living, combined with the increasing number of people residing in the middle and upper-income groups around the world, are contributing to an increase in the demand for residential cooling devices.

Furthermore, the increasing inclination of industrial manufacturers towards factory automation is associated with improved productivity and reduced production times. These factors have positively anticipated the growth of the global air compressor market. However, the presence of some obstacles limits the overall development of the market. Primary factors include a shortage of skilled labor, technicians, and engineers, restricting the market's growth. In addition, the high cost of installing and maintaining the equipment is expected to slow growth during the forecast period. However, the technological boom has improved the compression capabilities of air compressors, which is expected to increase the demand for air compressors. Furthermore, the advent of energy-efficient air compressor designs, which are also possible in portable formats, has been broadly utilized by industries worldwide. This will provide lucrative growth potential during the forecast period.

  • Others

The market is augmented into Food & Beverage, Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Power Generation, Medical, and Others based on application. During the projected period, the oil and gas category will have the most significant market share. The product is primarily used in the oil and gas industry for reservoir pressure preservation re-injection.

Impact of covid-19 on Air Compressor Market

COVID-19 has had significant impacts on the global air compressor value chain. The economic impact of the virus is also increasingly apparent. It affected a wide range of activities within the value chain, including sales and distribution, sourcing of raw materials, after-sales services, loss of demand, etc. The main impact of COVID-19 on air compressors has been a significant loss of revenue caused by declining demand from end-user industries, which can be a bottleneck for the compressor market.

Regional Analysis:

The Market for Air compressors has been categorized based on geography to offer a clear understanding of the global market. The world Market for Air compressors has been studied in four regions: Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, North America, and the Middle East and Africa. Asia-Pacific is experiencing tremendous industrialization growth in different industries, including small and large scale. According to World Bank estimates, more than 40% of the region's GDP comes from industrial and manufacturing activity. Furthermore, with the growth of the refining and gas market in countries like India and China, an increase in the air compressor market is indisputable.

Additionally, considerable investment in the pipeline industry is expected to boost the air compressor market. Stationary air compressors, including small-size compressors in refrigerators and air conditioners, have a large share of the compressor market.
