Global Air Compressor Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2033

The global air compressor market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~USD 44 billion by the end of 2033 by growing at a CAGR of ~3% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2033. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~USD 33 billion in the year 2022. Air compressors are devices, pneumatic in nature, and use to increase air pressure by forcing air into a storage tank until it reaches its engineered upper limit. Then the compressor turns off and stores the air in the tank till its usage and again turns on to repressurize the tank once it reaches the lower limit. The immense growth of the oil and gas industry, which relies a lot on air compressors, is the primary factor driving the growth of the global air compressor market. It is estimated that in January 2022, about 119,101 were observed to be involved in the production of oil and gas.






The growth of the industry followed the rearrangement of operations by companies trying to recover from the impact of the pandemic. Air compressors are used in oil and gas fields as facilities maintaining and boosting the gas pressure as moving through the pipelines, first to the suppliers and then to the final consumers. Reciprocating compressors are mostly used for this purpose.

Global Air Compressor Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Considerable Growth in Energy Consumption – In 2021, global energy consumption was observed to rebound following COVID-19 by ~6%. The main reasons for the steady increase in energy consumption throughout the years were the development in aspects including the economy, society, and technology. Of these, economic development is the main driving factor, and it leads the growing economies in the world to greater energy consumption with the rise in their standard of living. It is in this scenario that air compressors become relevant as they help in reducing energy wastage.

  • Very Large Number of Auto Workshops – It is estimated that there was a total of about 239,101 auto repair centers in the United States (U.S.) towards the end of 2021.

  • Rapid Growth of Industrialization – About 754 million people are thought to have worked in industries in 2021.

  • Growing Number of Construction Projects – The total count of new home construction in the U.S. only in August 2022 reached up to 2 million units.


  • Disruptions in Supply Chain During COVID-19

  • Temporary Halt in Industrial Functions during the Pandemic

  • Decline in Commercial Activities during the Pandemic

The global air compressor market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into manufacturing, semiconductors & electronics, food & beverage, health/medical, home appliances, energy, oil & gas, and others.
