Air compressors are devices that convert electrical energy into potential energy and store it in air form. High speed, low noise, easy to use controls, low maintenance costs, and high performance are some of their impressive features. They require cooling and lubrication for continuous air supply. This leaves behind high oil content in the compressor that needs removal. Oil-free compressors use water as an alternative to lubricate and cool the system without filtration.
The portable oil-free air compressor market is predicted to have a size of about USD 8.5 billion by 2022. Next-generation air compressors that are energy-efficient and reliable will drive the market. Focus on complying with environmental regulations to ensure oil-free air would also spur market revenues from 2015 to 2022 (forecast period). Rising costs of raw materials will be a challenge for the market.
