The global air compressor controller market, valued at US$ 3,453.6 Mn in 2014, is expected to see growth at a CAGR of 5.8% during the period from 2015 to 2022. Air compressor controllers allow efficient control of compressor systems by providing required output. The application of air compressor controllers is expected to increase across various industrial segments in the coming years. Air compressor controllers help in reducing energy consumption in compressor systems and thereby improve their efficiency. Air compressor controllers protect compressors from surge events and operate the compressor near the surge line in order to provide maximum efficiency. The application of compressor controller is expected to surge in the oil & gas, and petrochemical industries in the coming years.
The global air compressor controller market is segmented by component, end-use industries, and by geographic regions. SCADA and PLC were the key contributors to the overall revenue in the global air compressor controller market. The demand for PLC and other components such as motors and actuators is also expected to surge as the retrofit business for compressor controller is anticipated to increase. The key industries where application of air compressor controller is prominent include oil & gas, petrochemical, and energy & mining since requirement for compressed air is high in these industries. Moreover, the growth of HVAC systems in commercial spaces across all global regions is expected to increase the demand for compressor controllers.
Based on the revenue generated from different geographies, Middle East and Africa, and North America were the key contributors to the global air compressor controller market in 2014. The Middle East and African countries such as Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Nigeria, Libya and United Arab Emirates, are the largest contributors in terms of oil production to the global economy. The compression control requirement from these countries is high and thus, the demand for air compressor controller is high in this region. In North America, air compressor controllers are primarily used in oil & gas, energy & mining, pharmaceutical, and HVAC industries. Moreover, large numbers of air compressor controller manufacturers are based in North America. Other regions such as Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America are also expected to witness significant growth in the coming years.
The air compressor controller market is moderately consolidated however; the impact of regional players is significant in the global market. Some key manufacturers of compressor controllers include Siemens AG, GE Measurement & Control Solutions, Compressor Controls Corporation and Emerson Climate Technologies. These players are primarily involved in acquiring regional players manufacturing compressor control solutions. Besides offering air compressors with integrated control capabilities, these players also provide retrofitting solutions for already installed air compressors. Other significant players in the market include Schneider Electric SE, Gardner Denver, Inc., Rockwell Automation, Inc., Johnson Controls, Inc., Petrotech, Inc., Ingersoll Rand plc and FS-Elliot Co. Ltd.
Air compressors supply compressed air or gas across various industries such as food & beverages, automotive, petrochemical, oil & gas, energy & mining, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) industry among others. The efficiency of air compressor is critical since compressors run for long hours during their operation. Thus, industries utilizing these compressors demand for air compressors with compression control technology. Oil & gas, petrochemical, and energy & mining are some of the key industries where use of compressor controller is prominent. The growth in these industries is expected to affect the air compressor controller market positively since these industries are the major consumers of compressor controllers. Moreover, the market for compressor controller retrofitting is also expected to increase as industry players are increasingly installing compressor control systems in their old compressors.
Key factors driving the global air compressor controller market include efficient compressor operation at lower costs, low maintenance of air compressor, rising adoption of variable-speed air compressor controllers, and after-market service and retrofitting of existing air compressor systems. The increase in demand from oil & gas industry is another factor driving the demand for air compressor controllers. The application of air compressor controllers is expected to increase across various industrial segments in the coming years. Moreover, industry players look to increase the efficiency and overall performance of air compressors, which is further expected to escalate the demand for compressor controllers.
