 Air Compressor In Oil And Gas Industry Market Size to grow by USD 2538 million between 2024-2028

According to a research report “ Air Compressor In Oil And Gas Industry Market” by Product (Positive displacement (PD), Centrifugal) Type (Stationary, Portable) Geography (APAC, North America, Europe, South America, Middle East and Africa)- Global Forecast to 2028 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 2538 million, at a CAGR of  4.36% during the forecast period. In the oil and gas industry, the pressing need to address climate change and global warming has led to a heightened focus on energy efficiency and emissions reduction. Compliance with regional regulations in Europe and North America, which mandate the use of energy-efficient equipment such as compressors, motors, and pumps, is a primary driver for this trend. Additionally, electricity consumption, which constitutes approximately 70% of a compressor's total lifetime costs, is a significant consideration for end-users in their equipment selection process. By adopting new, energy-efficient air compressors, businesses in the oil and gas sector can reduce their carbon footprint, lower operational expenses, and remain compliant with regulatory requirements.

By Product, the Positive displacement (PD) segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

In the oil and gas industry, stationary air compressors are indispensable due to their larger capacity and ability to provide a continuous supply of compressed air. These compressors, which are stationary by design, are characterized by their larger size and immovable positioning. The substantial tank volumes necessitate a fixed installation, making them unsuitable for relocation. Stationary air compressors are more powerful than their portable counterparts, enabling them to generate higher airflow and pressure. However, their larger size and greater capacity necessitate a significant power source, typically derived from an AC main supply, limiting their operability in areas without access to such power. Consequently, stationary air compressors are the preferred choice for oil and gas sites that demand substantial volumes of compressed air for their operations.

By Type, Stationary  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

In the oil and gas industry, positive displacement (PD) compressors, which include reciprocating piston compressors, rotary screw compressors, and rotary vane compressors, dominated the global air compressor market in 2023. These compressors function by capturing a specific volume of air in a chamber and subsequently reducing the chamber's size to compress the air. Amongst PD compressors, reciprocating piston compressors, specifically, are further classified into single-acting and double-acting types. Single-acting piston compressors draw in air from one side of the piston, compress it during the upward stroke, and utilize the downward stroke to release the compressed air into the system.

APAC is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024

In the Oil and Gas sector, air compressors play a pivotal role in powering various operations. These compressors are essential for the production and processing of natural gas and oil. They help in the extraction of raw resources by supplying compressed air for drilling and completion activities. Additionally, they are utilized in natural gas processing facilities for the separation and purification of natural gas. The market for air compressors in this industry is robust, driven by the increasing demand for energy and the need for efficient and reliable equipment solutions.
