Low maintenance cost, better energy efficiency, easy portability, and eco-friendly operations are some of the key factors driving the growth of the global air compressor market. However, noise pollution, rising cost of raw materials, bulkiness, contaminated compressed air and others are some of the key factors limiting the market growth.

On the basis of lubrication type, the air compressor market is segmented into oil free and oiled compressors. Oiled air compressor was the highest revenue-generating segment in 2014 and would continue to lead the market throughout the analysis period. These air compressors have wide-scale applications in heavy duty industries, such as petroleum, mining, chemical and automobiles, which is a major driving factor for their market growth.

Based on the technology, the global air compressor market is categorized into three segments, viz. rotary, centrifugal and reciprocating air compressors. Rotary air compressor was the highest revenue-generating segment in 2014, constituting 48.8% of the total market by value. The segment would continue to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. The centrifugal air compressor segment is expected to exhibit a significant growth owing to its wide-scale applications in various industries namely automobile, power generation, mining and others.

Many air compressor vendors and manufacturers have focused on developing application-specific air compressors to cater to the demand of the end users. The key players profiled in this report, include Atlas Copco, Ingersoll Rand, Kobe Steel Ltd., Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., Kirloskar, Sulzer, Ebara, and ELGI. Product launch, acquisition and expansion are the prime growth strategies adopted by these companies. Atlas Copco, one of the leading air compressor manufacturers, has revamped and re - launched its SF series of oil-free scroll compressors. These air compressors are silent, reliable, oil-free and compact, which has increased their adoption among end users and OEMs. The high demand of diesel, gasoline and other fuels in Brazil has led to the establishment and expansion of petrochemical plants and oil refineries in this region. Kobe Steel Ltd. recently announced its expansion into the South American air compressor market to tap this lucrative opportunity. Air compressors are widely used for compressing and transporting gases in oil and gas processing plants. Ingersoll Rand had acquired Cameron's centrifugal compression division to widen its air compressor product and service portfolio, access its advance air compressor technology and strengthen its market position.
