The American Society of Mechanical Engineers had reported that the value-added by manufacturing sector in the U.S. increased by 7% during 2018 and is estimated to witness further expansion in the near future. These trends will certainly provide regional manufacturers with promising opportunities.

Reports estimate that North America portable air compressor market size will be worth more than US$1 billion by 2026, with rapid growth of food & beverage, building & construction and other industries. Following are some of the major factors driving the component adoption across the region.

  • Consistent demand for rotary mobile air compressors

Portable air compressors can be classified into reciprocating and rotary types based on technology. Reciprocating portable air compressor market size in North America is expected to surpass US$115 million by 2026. These systems are extensively used in high-fluctuation operations performed at high load peaks, such as construction, workshops, and small industries.

Rotary portable air compressors held over 88% revenue share in 2019 and will continue to dominate the market by 2026. Their operation is based on positive displacement mechanics that involves fewer rotating components. Consequently, they require comparatively low maintenance through their life cycle. Manufacturers are focusing on designing innovative new products with high energy efficiency and low noise levels.

  • Growing application of oil-free portable air compressors

Depending upon the type of lubrication, portable air compressors are bifurcated into oil-free and oil-filled types. The oil-filled portable air compressor market in North America is likely to exceed an annual valuation of over US$646 million by 2026. The product is available in a variety of forms and allows user to minimize energy costs throughout its lifecycle.

The demand for oil-free portable air compressors across North America is projected to grow at a healthy 5% CAGR through 2026. These compressors are widely preferred owing to advantages such as efficient operation at lower costs, optimum performance at variable speeds, and lower need for repair and maintenance. The technology enables manufacturers to remove expensive filter equipment, translating into lower production, operational, and maintenance costs.

  • Increasing use in mining & construction applications

North America portable air compressor market size form manufacturing application is projected to hit US$300 million by 2026. With the introduction of favorable government policies, the region has witnessed an expansion of numerous end-use industries. Increasing industrialization and manufacturing activities will drive the regional product demand in the future.

Meanwhile, portable air compressor demand across North America’s mining and construction sector will grow at a CAGR of more than 5% through 2026. Growth of the regional mining industry has been positively influenced by supportive government policies and initiatives. Respective governments have undertaken numerous initiatives to boost domestic mineral production. Canada boasted of nearly 200 mines and over 7,000 quarries with an output of approximately 41 billion in 2016.
