Air Compressor Market Size Worth $37.16 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 5.2%

The global air compressor market size is expected to reach USD 37.16 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Air Compressor Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Type (Stationary, Portable); By Product; By Lubrications; By Application; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

Air compressors function through three primary modes: rotary, centrifugal, and reciprocating types. Rotary compressors, utilizing a screw-type mechanism for air compression, stand out for their efficiency and dominance in the industry, which is attributed to easy maintenance.

Centrifugal and reciprocating compressors find widespread use in diverse operations like air and gas filling. Stationary compressors, particularly favored by commercial manufacturing and industrial sectors, hold a leading position in the market.

In recent years, the global compressor industry experienced a modest decline due to stringent regulations and limited infrastructure development and investments. However, the forecast period anticipates progressive market growth. Oil-filled compressors, extensively applied in activities such as cleaning, blowing, and sandblasting, contribute to increased compressor usage across various industrial sectors, including manufacturing, oil gas, energy and power, electronics, and semiconductors.

Notably, demand for compressors in key regions worldwide is expected to drive market growth in the forecast period.

The global market experienced a slight downturn during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, in 2021, the market rebounded, driven by increased demand from the medical sector post-pandemic. Air compressors play a pivotal role as key components in production lines across various industry verticals, including manufacturing, automotive, and electronics semiconductors. Additionally, industrial air compressors find application in petrochemical, gas, manufacturing, and other sectors. These compressed air systems are adept at being regulated and designed to purify air even in challenging circumstances and environments.

Throughout the pandemic, major players in the air compression industry focused on formulating robust strategies to navigate the diverse impacts of the perilous coronavirus and shifting market dynamics.
