Air Compressor Market is Expected to Reach USD 35.34 Billion by 2030

The expanding construction industry along with the growth of the oil and gas industry are significantly boosting the air compressor market growth.

According to a new research report by Next Move Strategy Consulting, the global Air Compressor Market was valued at USD 23.88 billion in 2023 and is predicted to reach USD 35.34 billion by 2030, with a CAGR of 5.3% from 2024 to 2030. In terms of volume the market size was 10 million units in 2023 and is projected to reach 19 million units by 2030, with a CAGR of 9.3% from 2024 to 2030.

The growth of the air compressor market is largely driven by the expanding construction industry and the increasing need for reliable and efficient tools for various construction tasks. As infrastructure projects proliferate, activities such as drilling, nailing, painting, sandblasting, and concrete spraying rely heavily on advanced pneumatic equipment powered by air compressors. 

According to the 2022 World Bank Report, the global construction industry generated approximately USD 27.76 trillion in revenue and continues to grow at a rapid pace. Modern construction techniques and designs frequently depend on robust, high-capacity compressed air systems to ensure smooth and efficient project execution. 

The rapid expansion in both commercial and residential construction sectors heightens the demand for technologically advanced air compressor solutions essential for powering complex tools and machinery. Consequently, the flourishing construction industry significantly boosts the air compressor market by necessitating these critical devices for efficient and effective operations.

Moreover, the growing oil and gas industry is significantly increasing the air compressor market demand, globally. The 2023 International Agency report projects that global oil demand will reach 105.7 million barrels per day by 2028. This rising demand underscores the need for air compressors in gas compression and processing facilities, driven by the industry's focus on optimizing production, reducing downtime, and ensuring regulatory compliance.

Drilling, a core activity in the oil and gas sector, also relies on compressed air to power pneumatic drills and hammers for operations such as borehole drilling, well completion, and resource extraction. Whether for pneumatic drilling, gas compression, refining, or offshore applications, air compressors are essential for enhancing efficiency and productivity across the oil and gas sector.

For instance, in February 2024, ELGi Equipment launched its PG 550-215 trolley-mounted portable screw air compressor in India. The PG 550-215 is designed to enhance performance, reliability, and profitability for customers in construction and mining, featuring a 3-stage air filtration system and an integrated control panel for optimal performance, safety, and driller-friendly operations.

Also, December 2024, Kaeser launched a new oil-free compression rotary screw compressor, the CSG.1 series, tailored for specialized engineering applications such as pharmaceuticals and chemical manufacturing. These compressors offer air flow rates from 4 to 15 cubic meters per minute and pressures up to 11 bar. However, the substantial initial investment required for air compressors, combined with ongoing maintenance needs such as filter replacements, lubrication, and inspections, contributes significantly to the overall cost of ownership.

This financial burden acts as a barrier to market expansion. As a result, many small and medium-sized enterprises are hesitant to invest in new air compressor systems or upgrade their existing ones, potentially impeding the market growth. On the contrary, the integration of air compressors with IoT sensors and cloud platforms is anticipated to create future growth opportunities for the market by enabling remote monitoring, predictive maintenance, and optimized compressor performance.

IoT sensors installed on air compressors collect real-time data on various parameters such as temperature, pressure, and energy consumption. This data is transmitted to cloud platforms, where advanced analytics algorithms analyze it to detect potential issues, predict maintenance needs, and optimize operations. By leveraging IoT and cloud technologies, companies can reduce downtime, enhance equipment reliability, and improve energy efficiency. This drive for smart air compressor solutions is expected to foster market growth.
