Segment Analysis

By Technology

The industry can be categorized by technology into the reciprocating, rotary, and centrifugal segments. Reciprocating and rotary air compressors are termed "positive displacement compressors, whereas centrifugal compressors fall under the dynamic category or negative displacement category.

Positive displacement equipment works by decreasing the volume of a chamber filled with air, whereas negative or dynamic types utilize centrifugal force by spinning an impeller to further increase and decrease the amount of air, resulting in compressed air. The centrifugal compressor market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 6.0% over the forecast period. 

Application Insights

The study divides application sectors into semiconductors and electronics, healthcare, food and beverage, energy, home appliances, oil and gas, and manufacturing. There is a high demand for and product penetration in manufacturing applications; for example, oil-free air is directly used as power for manufacturing machines in various locations throughout plants.
