Report Overview

In the North American market, air compressors primarily find application in industries such as food and beverage, oil extraction, and pharmaceutical. The emergence of energy-efficient portable air compressors is proving its usefulness in all industries due to convenience in transporting the equipment. The air contamination caused due to oil lubrication was a major area of concern among the users of these products. However, the advent of oil-free lubrication has helped to overcome this problem. The North American market of air compressors faced instability in 2009 due to global recession. However, with signs of improvement in economic conditions since 2012, the revival of stalled projects has fuelled the market growth. 

The market is segmented on the basis of type, product design, lubrication method, and countries. Based on type, air compressors are classified into portable and stationary models. The convenience in handling portable air compressors has increased its adoption in low-duty applications. On the basis of design, air compressors are classified as rotary, centrifugal, and reciprocating. Rotary air compressors are commonly found in heavy industrial applications, whereas centrifugal air compressors are receiving increasing adoption due to non-industrial applications. The rotary air compressors are further analyzed into their subtypes such as screw, rotary helical, and rotary sliding vane. The reciprocating air compressors are further analyzed into their subtypes, which include single phase, two phase, rocking piston, and diaphragm. As per lubrication method practiced by industry players, the market is analyzed into oil-lubricated and oil-free air compressors. Oil-free air compressors are gaining traction among industries such as pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and electronic assembling. In order to gain regional insights, the market is analyzed for various countries such as U.S.A., Canada, and Mexico.

Several key companies in the market are adopting strategies such as product launch, acquisition, and geographic expansion as a means to increase market penetration. Rotary air compressors are gaining increased attention from key market players. Several leading players such as Atlas Copco, Ingersoll Rand, and VMAC are launching rotary air compressors with new features. Other key players in the market include, Campbell Housfeld, Porter Cable, Kobe Steel, and Sulzer Ltd.
