The utilization of stationary compressors in India across these domains has been showcasing an increasing demand due to the rising acceptance of pneumatic energy consumption in India, rising FDI inflows, particularly in the most robust industrial states of India like Maharashtra and Gujarat....

A study recently conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the India stationary compressor market reached USD 1,117.9 million in 2020. The market is further expected to reach USD 1,739.5 million by 2027 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% during 2021-2027 (forecast period). The growth of the India stationary compressor market has been positively impacted by the growth of the oil& gas industry, investments in healthcare and automotive divisions across the country, and the growing adoption rates of pneumatic energy. Additionally, many states in India have experienced an increase in foreign direct investment, including Gujarat and Maharashtra, which has resulted in the growth of stationary compressor-related industries.

Rising demand for automotive services in India is driving the demand for stationary compressors

Stationary compressors are an essential part of the automobile services industry and are used extensively in auto repair and auto body shops and facilities. Vehicle service, repair, and auto body shops use stationary compressors of 5 HP to 30 HP with 80-to-240-gallon air receivers to power the shop’s pneumatic tools and equipment. Reciprocating compressors are generally preferred in the automobile services industry. However, people are shifting rapidly toward rotary screw compressors due to the low overall cost and their ability to produce massive volumes of high-pressure air. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), EV sales, excluding E-rickshaws, went up by 20% in 2020 and reached 1,560 thousand units in 2020. IBEF further states that only 35% of all "post-warranty cars" go back to authorized service centers, and 65% go to multi-brand car service centers. It signifies the importance of the automobile services industry in the country. With the growing automobile sales, along with booming EV sales, the demand for automobile services centers and stationary compressors is expected to go up and drive the growth of the India stationary compressor market in the foreseeable future.

Rising demand arising from food processing industries powering the growth of the India stationary compressor market

Many facilities across the food & beverages industry have started leveraging stationary compressors for food processing. Stationary compressors are leveraged for cleaning air out of containers before filling the products, sorting of products, filling baked goods, packaging systems, freezing of food products, packaging by blow-molding processes. According to one estimate from India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India’s revenue arising from the FMCG industry has been found at USD 103.7 billion in 2020. The rising investment in the food processing industry via FDI inflows is positively contributing to the demand for the India stationary compressors market. The investments are bolstering the use of stationary compressors in the food processing industry to reduce the chances of air contamination, thereby driving the growth of the India stationary compressor market.

Based on types, the reciprocating segment occupied the largest market share of the India stationary compressor market

There are five main types of stationary compressors in the India stationary compressor market, namely, reciprocating, screw, scroll, vane, and centrifugal. Among these types of compressors, the reciprocating compressors segment holds the largest share in the India stationary compressor market. Under reciprocating compressors, the 450-900 rpm compressors are anticipated to register the fastest CAGR in the coming years. Since reciprocating compressors are utilized by small-scale and medium-scale industries, which make up a larger part of the Indian market, there is a rising demand for such compressors in the country. Reciprocating compressors have been in decline for the last few years while screw compressors have gained their market share because of their higher efficiency and shorter production timeframe.

India Stationary Compressor Market – COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the overall India stationary compressor market. As a result of lockdown restrictions that were imposed during the initial phase of the pandemic, factories across India had to shut down to contain the spread of the virus. As a non-essential commodity, stationary compressors nonetheless took a toll on the entire industry. The trade restrictions disrupted the supply of compressors from China and Germany, two of the leading countries supplying components to India for stationary compressors. Furthermore, the escalating COVID-19 versions have halted the import of critical components from China. Additionally, the initial lockdown measures have also severely impacted the growth of various end-user applications like manufacturing, food and beverage, oil and gas, and mining, among others as they had to shut their operations due to the rising COVID-19 cases. These are the primary factors that have been impeding the growth of the India stationary compressor market throughout the pandemic. However, the recent FDI inflows in the country have started initiating the adoption of pneumatic energy and encouraging the companies to shift from hydraulic to pneumatic energy. It is accompanied by rising vaccination rates, which is contributing to the growth of stationary compressors in India.
