A gas compressor is typically adopted for increasing the pressure of a gas by reducing its volume. Compression of gas causes temperature changes. Different types of gas compressors include positive displacement compressors and dynamic compressors. Positive displacement compressors are also sub-categorized between reciprocating and rotary compressors. While, dynamic compressors are divided among centrifugal compressors and axial compressors based axis of rotation.
The gas compressors market is broadly categorized into major segments based on the application type such as oil & gas sector, steel industry, automobile sector, chemical industry, electronics sector, pharmaceutical industry, and petroleum & petrochemical refining sector. Oil & gas segment is growing rapidly in the market with substantial revenue generation in the last few years. Growing popularity of gas compressors in oil & gas segment is attributed to the rising oil exploration activities across the North America and Middle-East region, and growing use of natural gas across industries such as the chemical, fertilizers and petrochemical industry.
The market is divided by region as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Africa. North America has shown major growth in recent years owing to the rise in implementation of latest technologies in oil & gas industry, surge in number of research & development activities and existence of well-established industrial infrastructure in the region.
