According to a new research published by Polaris Market Research the air compressor market is anticipated to reach over USD 45.6 billion by 2026. In 2017, the stationary air compressor segment dominated the global market, in terms of revenue. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the leading contributor to the global market revenue during the forecast period.
The increasing applications of air compressors in industries such as healthcare, construction, mining, automotive, and oil & gas among others are expected to support the growth of this market. Other driving factors include high energy efficiency, low maintenance cost, environmentally friendliness, portability, ability to deliver variation in supplied pressure. The increasing awareness regarding use of energy efficient compressors would boost the market growth during the forecast period. However, rising cost of raw material, noise pollution, and contaminated compressed air hamper the growth of the market. Growing demand from emerging economies, and technological advancements are factors expected to provide numerous growth opportunities in the coming years.
Air compressors are used to power a variety of equipment in diverse applications such as automated tools, spray painting equipment, material handling and separation equipment. There has been an increasing demand of energy efficient air compressor over the years. Use of energy efficient air compressors helps in conserving electricity and reducing costs. Thus, launch of energy efficient air compressors by leading players in the market would provide growth opportunities in the market.
Turbocor and thermoacoustic are some emerging technologies in the air compressor segment. Compressors based on turbocor technology offer an oil free design with comparatively lesser moving parts, and deliver high performance and reliability. Thermoacoustic compressors utilize a thermoacoustic engine and a positive displacement reciprocating compressor. These upcoming technologies along with research and development would provide new opportunities in the air compressor market.
