Industrial Air Compressor Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Automation Across the Industries–Automation is occurring all across the world in all industries. Currently, automation is being used in some capacity by 66% of organizations in the world. Air compressors supply the required air pressure for control systems in automated machinery and processes. These mechanisms aid in the regulation of equipment functions and maintain the smooth operation of the machine.
  • Rapidly Growing Manufacturing– In 2021, global industrial output increased by 7.2%, approaching pre-pandemic levels. Air compressors are used in manufacturing to clean and remove trash, dust, and particles from panels or components before they undergo assembly or packing.
  • Growing Constructional Activities–With the high infrastructural development, the need for concrete and cement increases. Therefore, compressed air becomes necessary, since it uses to transfer the concrete powder through pipelines from storage silos to the processing units. The global demand for concrete may rise from 14.0 billion m3 today to nearly 20 billion m3 in 2050.


  • High Saturation in the Market- The market for industrial air compressors may become saturated in some places, resulting in increased competition among manufacturers. This saturation has the potential to impede price growth and have an impact on profit margins.
  • Low Presence of Alternative Technologies
  • Strict Ecological and Emission Standards

Industrial Air Compressor Segmentation

Power (Up to 15 kW, 16-75kW, 75-500kW, More than 500kW)

The 75-500kW segment is expected to account for roughly 40% of the industrial air compressor market by 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the increasing application of industrial air compressors with power of 75kW to 500kW in several industries, including water and wastewater treatment plants, power generation, and the chemical industry. The rising need for residential and industrial wastewater treatment in the world is expected to drive the segment’s growth. According to the latest research conducted by scientists at Utrecht University and the United Nations University, around half of the world's wastewater is treated.

Product Type (Dynamic, Positive Displacement)

The positive displacement sector is predicted to account for around 60% of the market by 2035. The versatility of the positive displacement compressor is a significant factor in the growth of the segment. It can work in both oil-free and lubricated conditions. Moreover, it can be divided into rotary and reciprocation compressors at the same time. Furthermore, it is expected the segment will garner a huge investment that will further aid its growth. The positive displacement finds its application majorly in the construction industry, therefore rising constructional activities are to boost the segment’s expansion.
