The centrifugal air compressor market market is projected to witness a CAGR of 2.17% during the forecast period to reach a total market size of US$12.405 billion by 2029, up from US$10.676 billion in 2022. 

A centrifugal air compressor refers to a class of turbomachinery that is dynamic axisymmetric work-absorbing. These air compressors accelerate a gas from the impeller’s center to develop pressure, with the help of centrifugal force, and then slow it down through expansion in a diffuser. The process converts velocity energy into pressure energy.

The driving factors of the centrifugal air compressor need are to rising production of natural gas globally, as well as rising power demand for different projects like natural gas power plants as well as industries like semiconductors, food, and beverages is also expected to fuel the market growth in the coming years. The technological advancement is also boosting the centrifugal air compressor to meet the growing demand of several industrial sectors.

Market Drivers:

  • Rising demand from the petrochemical industries is anticipated to propel the centrifugal air compressor market.

Centrifugal air compressors have multiple applications in the oil & gas industries which further helps to boost the centrifugal air compressor industry value. Some of the areas of applications of centrifugal compressors in these industries include petroleum refining to boost the pressure of processed gases, pipeline transportation to maintain air pressure for gas transportation through pipelines, in gas injection to promote the recovery of crude oil by injecting gas into oil layers to increase the gas pressure, etc.

Therefore, as the petrochemical industries continue to grow, the demand for centrifugal air compressors will also grow rapidly leading to the expansion of the centrifugal air compressor market size. In 2023, Howden planned to supply compressors for Europe's largest renewable hydrogen plant.

Increasing technological advancements will bolster the centrifugal air compressor market expansion.

Another key driving factor for the centrifugal air compressor market relates to the developments in product features and characteristics due to rapid technological advancements in the industry. As a result of these innovations, there is an increasing rate of adoption of centrifugal compressors as compared to reciprocating compressors. This is due to its characteristics such as a longer product lifecycle, lower lifetime costs, and a higher turndown ratio which reduces the probability of compressed air treatment system blow-offs during low-flow conditions. These product developments have made centrifugal air compressors a favourable choice for multiple industrial applications.

Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the marketplace.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the major centrifugal air compressor marketplace globally. The Asia Pacific region is expected to constitute a significant share of the centrifugal air compressor industry and similar trends are expected to be followed in the forecast period. This market share is owed to the growth in the manufacturing sector in the major economies of the region such as Japan, and India as well as the growth of the electronics industry and increased demand for semiconductors in regions such as China, and South Korea.

Furthermore, the rising industrial growth of major end-use sectors like oil and gas, in populated economies like China and India, is expected to raise the demand and market for centrifugal air compressors in the region. For instance, the National Development and Reform Commission predicts that the oil and gas pipeline network will reach 240,000 kilometres by 2025, while natural gas pipelines will reach 123,000 kilometres. Further, according to IBEF data of February 2024, India's oil demand is expected to increase by 2x to reach 11 million barrels per day by 2045, with diesel and gasoline accounting for 58% of the demand by 2045. Natural gas consumption is also projected to grow by 25 billion cubic meters, with an average annual growth of 9% until 2024.

Market Restraints.

  • The high initial cost of the product could hamper the demand for centrifugal air compressor growth.

The industry faces challenges due to the high initial costs of installing centrifugal air compressors, which can hinder growth and negatively impact demand. Manufacturers may not commit to the large investment, and the high costs may deter smaller industrial operations, especially in the early stages. Despite this, centrifugal compressors offer a lower lifetime cost compared to reciprocating compressors, making them a viable option for smaller operations.

  • Renting of centrifugal air compressors can hinder the market demand globally.

The industry's growth is hindered by the practice of renting centrifugal air compressors by small and medium-scale industries, which require them for shorter periods for air treatment processes. This financial decision, rather than purchasing, reduces demand as smaller businesses save considerable operational costs by renting these compressors.
