Market shares of air compressors by technology

The PD compressors segment accounts for the larger share of the market, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. However, when the demand is continuous and requires time oriented operational capabilities, centrifugal compressors are preferred by industries. These type of compressors are used in industries that require high compressed air.
Though centrifugal air compressors are costlier than PD variants, they require lower maintenance. Centrifugal compressors will witness a relatively higher demand from industries that require a continuous supply of oil-free compressed air.

Market segmentation of the air compressor market by geography

The air compressor market is segmented into the following regions based on their share of the market:

The demand for air compressors thrives on industrialization. End users of air compressors have a major presence in the APAC region, especially in chemical and petrochemical sector. Many manufacturing companies are investing in China and India in a bid to take advantage of the low-cost benefits associated with this region. New facilities in emerging countries are opening up new opportunities for air compressor vendors to introduce new products into the market.

Key developments in the air compressor market
About 94% of all electrical energy used by industrial compressors is converted to heat and subsequently harnessed for other purposes such as heating of water in plant operations, etc. The report demonstrates through examples, newer technologies that significantly enhance the energy saving needs of several industries.

VSD Compressors:

VSD compressors are playing a key role in reducing power consumption by changing the speed of its drive motor and lowering the speed of air flow.

Atlas Copco’s GA VSD+ compressor helps reduce energy consumption by as low as 50% as compared to low-performing traditional fixed-speed compressors. Atlas Copco has received the
John Munck Award for technical innovations for this product.

Oil-free Compressors:

Oil-free compressors play a key role in supplying the purest compressed air, and it finds immense utility in the pharmaceutical and food industries.

KAESER has launched a popular line of oil-free compressor systems that use FSG 420-2 and DSG 220-2 oil-free rotary screw compressors. The AQ 30-55 / 15-55 VSD and ER 90-900 compressor systems used by Atlas Copco are also examples of oil-free screw compressors that are in demand.

System Controllers:

System controllers contribute to the overall system efficiency in energy use through increased load sharing. System controllers are components that enable a group of compressors to work efficiently as a system. Though this technology is not new, it has grown to become more affordable for end-users.
