Air Compressor Market Product overview

Compressors are the device that works on mechanical principle of compressing gas. It increases the pressure of the gas by decreasing the volume. An air compressor is a machine which converts electrical energy into kinetic energy, specifically by utilizing compressed air.  It is similar to pump both have the same role of compression. The Law on which compressor is based is Boyle’s Law. It is mainly of two types Gas Compressors and Air Compressors. An air compressor is a distinct type of gas compressor. It is a device that converts Power into Kinetic energy. The distinct types of Air Compressor are positive displacement compressor and Dynamic displacement compressor. They are used in process industries, which include sectors such as petroleum, power generation, chemicals, automotive, pharmaceuticals, mining, food & beverages, and others. These devices play an important role in improving the efficiency, safety, and profitability of the industries.

Market Size and Forecast

The CAGR of Air compressor market is expected to be 4% during the year 2018-2027. It is expected to achieve a market of around USD 26 Bn by 2027.
