Sustainable products, efficient activities at cost-effective prices, and retrofitting of legacy systems are also projected to supplement the demand for the product over the estimated years. Increasing raw material prices, intense competition, and loud operation can restrain the market growth in the coming years. However, technological innovation, strict government norms, and sustainability can lower the impact over the estimated period.

Technology Insights

Depending on the technology, the portable oil-free air compressor market is categorized into reciprocating, centrifugal, and rotary segments. The rotary and reciprocating segment is the positive displacement compressors while centrifugal is regarded as negative or dynamic displacement centers. Rotary compressors occupied a 45% market share in 2014, followed by reciprocating and centrifugal.

Positive displacement compressors work by lowering the chamber volume with air whereas dynamic compressors use centrifugal force by rotating the impeller for increasing and decreasing the volume of air making it compressed air. Centrifugal compressors are anticipated to ascend with a CAGR of 4.0% in the upcoming years.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market is segregated into semiconductors & electronics, home appliances, food & beverage, manufacturing, oil & gas, and healthcare. Manufacturing application is witnessing a surging demand and extensive product acceptance. For example, oil-free air is used in several locations in the plant as a power source for manufacturing machines.

In the healthcare industry, these devices are widely used for air cleaning essential for dentistry, and also used in reducing air contamination. In the food & beverage division, these compressors lower contamination risk in various for manufacturers of food & beverage and also provide air which requires no further separation and filtration. They are used in packaging, transportation, and capping & filling for enhancing the quality of the product and preventing health hazards.

Regional Insights

Europe dominated the market in 2014, occupying more than 30% of total demand due to growing preference in the processing, exploration, refining, and production of crude oil products. Further spending in Eastern Europe is estimated to offer noticeable avenues for producers.

Asia Pacific market is anticipated to ascend with a CAGR of 4% over the forecast years due to the rising incorporation of oil refineries and petrochemical plants.

North America is predicted to grow substantially in the upcoming years due to the permeation of the industry. Latin America and MEA are anticipated to foresee noticeable growth due to the increasing preference for sustainable products.
