Market dynamics


Growing demand for durable compressors

The demand for the highly durable air compressor is increasing for applications in the drilling process. Rising usage of various machines in manufacturing and other industries has fueled the growth of the market. The rapidly growing oil and gas industry due to increasing demand for electricity and fuel across the world is dramatically increasing the demand for durable air compressors. Rising oil consumption worldwide is expected to drive the demand for air compressors among oil producers to increase productivity at lower cost.


The installation cost of modern high-pressure compressors

Installing modern and innovative air compressors like the rotary air compressor involves high supply and installation costs. High capital investments can prevent end users with limited financial capabilities from adopting modern air compressors. This is a major restraining factor that might hamper the growth of the market over the forecast period.


Constant product launches

Manufacturers invest heavily in R&D and are constantly engaged in introducing new innovative features in air compressors. For example, in February 2021, Sullair introduced its mid-range series portable compressors. This product is integrated with electronic spiral valve technology which provides flexibility and improved operational efficiency. These new features may provide various growth prospects in the foreseeable future.
