The global Turbocompressor market size was USD 4.92 billion in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 5.05 billion in 2021 to USD 7.77 billion by 2028, grow at a CAGR of 6.4% in the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a lower growth of -3.8% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s growth and demand, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Turbocompressor is an overhung machine used for the compression and injection of gases. They further help eliminate the pressure surge present in the injected gas. In these compressors, the pressure rises due to the continuous conversion of angular momentum imparted by a high-speed impeller into static pressure. Furthermore, they are utilized in every aspect of natural gas development. They have wide-scale applications in the oil & gas sector, and the demand for these compressors has risen substantially due to the need for growing power generation capabilities.


Investment Deficits Amid COVID-19 to Hinder Market Pace

The abrupt spread of novel coronavirus or COVID-19 has left several industries and countries in economic turmoil. The business frameworks have been significantly affected by the disturbances in the supply chain, unavailability of ample funds, shutdown of industrial facilities, and other factors. In addition, different administrations have also imposed stern actions, including social distancing guidelines, national & state level lockdowns, and constrained global interactions to limit the spread of the virus, adversely impacting the financial health of organizations.

Furthermore, manufacturers of compressors are facing several issues related to order closures on time due to worldwide lockdown. Also, delay in obtaining raw materials and other parts from suppliers, majorly located in China and other Southeast Asian countries, emerged as the key factor impacting the industry pace. However, the implementation of new smart city projects across several regions to meet their low-carbon targets is expected to counterbalance the challenges during the pandemic. Meanwhile, due to negative impact of the pandemic, major players in the market, such as Atlas Copco, Howden, Kobe Steel, and Sulzer, registered a decline in sales for 2020.

By Type Analysis

Centrifugal Turbocompressor to Augment the Segment Outlook

Based on type, the market is classified into centrifugal and axial turbocompressor. Centrifugal turbocompressors are expected to hold a major turbocompressor market share, owing to their characteristics and benefits over conventional compressors. These compressors are constructed uniquely according to plant requirements and consume notably less energy as compared with other compressor designs. They have applications in various end-use sectors, including mining, power generation plants, municipal (water and wastewater plants), automotive, and other end-use industries. Besides, axial turbocompressors have applications in steel plants, chemical industry, and others, owing to their high peak efficiency and small frontal area for a given flow.

By Stage Analysis

Multi-Stage Turbocompressor to See Maximum Adoption During the Forecast Period

By stage, the market is divided into single-stage and multi-stage. Single-stage type dominated the market in 2020. These compressors are designed for low maintenance, long life, and continuous service in corrosive and unclean applications, including refineries, natural gas processing, petrochemical plants, power stations, and coal gasification. Additionally, single-stage turbocompressor is adopted in a large range in end-use industries due to its smooth operation, ease of maintenance, and higher efficiencies that ensure reliable performance. On the other hand, multi-stage turbocompressors are used in the aerospace industry, as most high compression jet engines utilize multi-stage axial compressors for their operation.
