A hermetic compressor is defined as the system in which the engine and the main compressor are both sealed inside the outer casing to operate in an isolated environment. Compressors are classified into three distinct types: hermetic, semi-hermetic, and open.The compressor and the motor housing are placed in a two-piece shell in a semi-hermetic compressor. In a semi-hermetic compressor, the cover can be easily unbolted for servicing and maintenance, as they are bolted in combination. Semi-hermetic compressors usually have a higher cost than hermetic compressors because of the O-rings and bolts required to join the covers. Semi-hermetic compressors are typically used in appliances such as air conditioning and refrigeration units. As semi-hermetic compressors can provide a more financially efficient option, they are the preferred choice of compressor systems for large scale units. Semi-hermetic systems used in a regular household refrigerator is also applied to larger walk-in industrial cold rooms, air conditioning systems or bar cooling equipment used for environmental control of buildings, as all refrigeration systems work on the same principle of pumping a refrigerant gas between the condenser and the evaporator to control temperature as needed. Hermetic compressors and semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors are extensively used in the commercial refrigeration market.

The semi-hermetic compressors market is expected to expand at a good growth rate in the coming years. Changing food consumption trends in the world, emergence of supermarkets and fast food chains, and growing preference for semi-hermetic compressors are the key factors that are expected to drive the semi-hermetic compressors market over the forecast period. Changing eating habits and the popularity of prepared and semi-prepared food (daily dishes) due to an increase in the proportion of working women necessitates ease in purchase and selection of goods. This leads to importance of refrigeration systems, which is driving the semi-hermetic compressors market. Additionally, the growing industrial refrigeration market is anticipated to create growth prospects for semi-hermetic compressors during the forecast period. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing demand from end-users such as food processing and pharmaceutical industries. In addition, hermetic compressors and semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors are extensively used in the commercial refrigeration market. Significant increase in the number of hypermarkets, supermarkets, and organized retail chains that have opened around the globe is boosting the semi-hermetic compressors market. In developing countries where the concept of hypermarkets, supermarkets, and organized retail chains is relatively new, the need for energy efficient commercial refrigeration is high. Moreover, the increase in the number of organized ice cream parlors has increased the demand for replacement of and upgrades to refrigeration systems, which is driving the semi-hermetic compressors market. The food service industry comprising restaurants, commercial kitchens, takeaways, and fast food outlets has a strong focus on food safety, which places clear requirements on food storage. The requirement to store food at low temperatures drives the market for semi-hermetic compressors. However, compressor failure is a major cause of concern in the refrigeration industry. This can be due to electrical problems, contamination, loss or lack of lubrication, flood back, and overheating. Failure to maintain compressor pressure can also lead to failure of the compressor, which can spoil the food items stored in the freezer and cause economic loss. These problems can be avoided by inspecting the commercial ice cream freezer and taking corrective actions.

The semi-hermetic compressors market can be segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. Based on type, the semi-hermetic compressors market can be segmented into semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors and semi-hermetic screw compressors. In terms of application, the semi-hermetic compressors market can be segmented into commercial refrigeration and industrial refrigeration. Based on region, the semi-hermetic compressors market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America.
