Oil-Free Screw Compressors Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Fixed speed driveVariable speed drive), By Industry (Oil & Gas,Automotive,Semiconductor,Metals & Mining,Food & Beverages,Others (Pharmaceutical, Chemical, etc.))Others and Regional Forecast, 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102408 | Status : Ongoing



An oil-free screw compressor refers to air compression by the action of the screw without the assistance of the oil seal. Screw compressors are manufactured by utilizing raw materials such as aluminium & steel and components, such as bearings, crankshafts, switches, gauge, rotors, and housings. They are positive shifting compressors as the intermeshing rotors do not touch. The relative position is kept maintained through lubricated timing gears outside the compression chamber. Moreover, the oil-free screw compressor has low maximal discharge pressure. The application of an oil-free screw compressor is into medical, semiconductor, and industrial manufacturing.

Key Market Driver -

• Increasing demand of energy efficient compressor • Acceptance of variable speed oil free screw compressor

Key Market Restraint -

• Inadequate maintenance and less durability

Factors such as the development of small & medium enterprises, a rise in energy consumption, and ample opportunities for construction are stimulating the growth of the oil-free screw compressors market globally. Companies are strengthening their market position by collaborating with local players. For instance, in April 2019, Gardner Denver, inc. has merged with the division of  Ingersoll-Rand plc that produces the compressors. The merged market capitalization would be nearly USD 11.6 Billion. Moreover, Comairco has acquired D.R. Guilbeault, a Sullair distributor to expand its product reach in the Northeast region of the United States that offer solutions to rebuild the air compressors.

Henceforth, concerning the global perspective, the oil-free screw compressors market is expected to witness substantial growth.
