For instance, in April 2020, BOGE released a small-scale portable compressor. BOGE is focusing its resources on containing the outbreak as rapidly as possible. The BOGE EO Med portable solution has a simple installation method that may be extended in medical air installations or used as a completely new medical system in only a few hours and with minimal installation labor.

The EO series is oil-free and silent. It is appropriate for sensitive regions and feeding temporary ventilation centers, exposition, and sports halls that may be employed as quarantine facilities during COVID-19. Medical dryers are used for patient care in the healthcare business and are meant to remove water vapor during wind compression.

Further, such devices are utilized in pipes and fittings used in industrial facilities such as industrial refrigeration systems or point-of-use water treatment facilities to reduce the accumulation of impurities. The rise in the number of wastewater treatment plants has increased the demand for these compressed air filter and dryer market across the globe. This type of desiccant filter for compressors also avoids water accumulation and lowers the cost of corrosion maintenance for installed gear and equipment. These types of driers are projected to see increased demand from key industrial businesses since they boost the productivity of the production system.

The sale of inline desiccant dryers is expected to skyrocket throughout the forecast years, owing to the development in business volume of automobiles, oil & gas, and chemicals. However, constraints such as high maintenance costs, a scarcity of qualified specialists, the risk of system explosion, and a lack of awareness about just the proper use and application of the devices may restrict the market's growth.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
Various firms have developed innovative compressor dryer ideas, proving a lucrative market for the industry worldwide. For instance, in March 2021, the “Ultrapac Smart dryer” helps in removing condensate. It dries compressor streams in the manufacturing faculties using its 3-phase separation method, including, drying, and the purification, introduced by the Donaldson Company.

Highly filtered compressed air is essential for food and beverage processing applications such as beer, bottled water, milk, wine, and yogurt. Further, the market will be driven by the increasing use of class 0 air in the pharma packaging. Various governments have mandated Class 0 air for medical packaging, resulting in the growth of the market. Previously, manual packing techniques resulted in losses for many pharmaceutical corporations due to contaminated atmosphere. Such devices can remove all forms of contaminants from a compressed stream, and dryers to ensure that medications are packaged moisture and oil free.
