"One of the primary growth drivers for this market is the Shift to Energy-efficient Compressors," says a senior analyst for Industrials at Technavio. The shift to more energy-efficient compressors will be one of the significant factors that will drive market growth. Climate change and global warming have increased the need to focus on energy efficiency and reduction in emissions in the oil and gas industry. The regional governments in Europe and North America have taken initiatives to ensure that the various equipment used in industries, such as compressors, motors, and pumps, comply with the respective regional regulations. Lower electricity consumption is another crucial reason for the adoption of new air compressors in the end-user industries. To raise the overall energy efficiency, the industrial end-users need to adopt compressors fitted with efficient and reliable controls. This has also compelled the oil and gas industry to lower its power consumption by substituting its old air compressors with new energy-efficient air compressors. As the markets recover Technavio expects the air compressors market size to grow by USD 7.22 billion during the period 2020-2024.
