Market Overview:

The global piston compressor market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for compressed air in various industries such as oil & gas, chemical, PET industry, general industry and others. Additionally, the growing demand for energy-efficient and reliable equipment is also propelling the growth of this market. However, fluctuations in raw material prices may hamper the growth of this market to some extent during the forecast period. On basis of type, vertical piston compressors are expected to dominate the global piston compressor market during 2018-2030 owing their high efficiency and low noise levels as compared to other types of piston compressors available in the market.

Global Piston Compressor Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A piston compressor is a machine that uses pistons to compress air. The compressed air can then be used to power tools, provide air conditioning or heating, or run other machinery. Piston compressors are important because they can generate large amounts of compressed air very quickly, making them ideal for use in industrial settings.


Vertical pumps are used in compressors to increase the pressure of air or gas. The basic function of a vertical pump is to move fluid up and down, i.e., vertically through the impeller and discharge at its top. It can be used for either positive or negative displacement applications; however, it is most commonly employed as a positive displacement pump since that allows higher flow rates with less power consumption (waste).


Horizontal is the movement of air or a gas in a horizontal direction. It can be defined as either the change in direction of wind, or the shift from side to side (tilt). Horizontal flow is most commonly observed with jet engines and propellers. In an automobile engine, it may be represented by moving air across each cylinder's intake stroke.

In case of reciprocating compressor it moves up and down while in case of rotary compressor it moves left.

Application Insights:

The oil & gas industry dominated the global piston compressor market in 2017, accounting for over 30% of the overall revenue share. The segment is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rising demand for crude oil and natural gas. Crude oil and natural gas are processed by means of various processes including refining, processing, and transportation before they are used as fuel in an automobile or a power plant. Various industries such as chemicals, cement manufacturing process (SMC), general industry (Aerospace & Defense), petrochemical plants require high-performance compressors that can handle extreme pressure with ease. These products have become essential components in these industries owing to their ability to provide high-performance at low cost while maintaining reliability throughout its life span.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the presence of major oil & gas and petrochemical manufacturing companies in U.S. Furthermore, growing demand for energy storage is expected to drive product demand over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is projected to be one of the fastest-growing markets during the forecast years due to rapid industrialization and increasing population along with rising living standards, which are likely to generate a high need for various types of compressors across numerous industries including food & beverage, chemicals, metal processing and others. Moreover, China’s chemical industry has witnessed significant growth since 2010 as a result of increased domestic consumption coupled with export opportunities offered by countries such as Japan and India will further boost regional growth over next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for air compressors in end-user industries such as automotive, oil & gas, and manufacturing is expected to drive the growth of the piston compressor market during the forecast period.
  • Piston compressors are used in a wide range of applications such as pneumatic tools, medical equipment, HVAC systems, and food processing plants owing to their high performance and reliability. This is expected to fuel the growth of the piston compressor market over the next few years.
  • The development of new technologies that offer enhanced performance along with low noise levels is projected to boost demand for piston compressors in various end-user industries over the forecast period.
  • Growing investments by key players in research and development activities aimed at developing innovative products is anticipated to propel growth of this market during the forecast period. 5
