Booster Compressor Market Growth Factors

Ongoing Advancements in Compressor Technology to Drive the Booster Compressor Market Growth

Traditional compressors use oil for lubrication, which can contaminate the compressed air and require maintenance. Oil-free compression technology eliminates the need for lubricating oil, providing clean, high-quality compressed air suitable for sensitive applications such as food processing, pharmaceuticals, and electronics manufacturing. This innovation improves product quality, reduces maintenance requirements, and enhances the reliability of booster compressors. Modern booster compressors have advanced monitoring and diagnostic systems that continuously assess the compressor's performance, detect anomalies, and predict potential failures. These capabilities help operators optimize compressor efficiency, minimize downtime, and reduce maintenance costs by identifying issues before they escalate. Real-time monitoring also allows for proactive maintenance scheduling, ensuring optimal performance and reliability. 

In July 2023, Sauer Compressors launched a new range of high-pressure compressors for industrial applications. They are ideal for compressing many gases and for many applications. The newly developed magnetic clutch makes the compressors hermetically gas-tight.

Utilization in Gas-fired Power plants to Increase Booster Compressors Demand

Different nations are replacing coal-based power plants with natural gas-fired power plants for power generation. Germany has already passed legislation to end coal-fired power generation by 2038, and many countries in Europe and the rest of the world are investing in natural gas power plants projects. Turbines in gas-fired power plants require a certain pressure of fuel gas to combine the fuel gas and pressurized air before combustion. The demands on compressors at the same time have been growing because gas turbines require fuel gas pressures with higher psi to achieve higher performance efficiency. Also, pipeline pressures fluctuate due to increased peak demand and overall requirements. Hence, the growing awareness of adopting low carbon emission energy sources across the globe propels the market demand for boosters during the forecast period.


Utilization Of Existing Booster Compressor by Consumers to Hamper Adoption

Industrial manufacturers and consumers rely on servicing and continuing the usage of existing compressors instead of investing in new installations to decrease capital expenditure due to the high cost of new compressors. This factor, along with the emission of methane in the atmosphere from the compressors, leading to environmental issues, is the restraining factor in the booster market during the forecast period.
