Reciprocating Compressor Market To Witness Swift Growth Owing To Rising Demand From Consumers Industries Till 2022 | Million Insights


Global Reciprocating Compressor Market is segmented by Type as Vertical, Horizontal, and Others. A positive-displacement compressor that usually employs pistons that are driven by a crankshaft to transfer gases at high pressure is called a reciprocating compressor. It is also popularly known as a piston compressor as it deploys piston-cylinder arrangement to compress the air. When situations occur in which something moves back and forth, it is deemed as moving in reciprocating motion. Two sets of valves are located in it that takes care of air intake and exhaust.

What actually happens is that the intake gas initially goes into the suction manifold, and then it gushes into the compression cylinder where it gets condensed by a piston forced in a reciprocating motion through a crankshaft, and it is finally discharged. There are a wide range of applications attached with these reciprocating compressors. They may include oil refineries, gas pipelines, chemical plants, natural gas processing plants and refrigeration plants.

The most wide applied application is the blowing of plastic bottles prepared from polyethylene terephthalate (PET). On the basis type, the reciprocating compressor market can also be categorized as high speed and low speed. The high-speed category is also labeled as “separable,” and the low-speed category is known as “integral.”

High speed category is called “separable” because this class of reciprocating compressors is segregated from its driver. For driving a separable compressor, an engine or an electric motor is usually employed and as far as the operating speed is concerned, it is normally between 900 and 1,800 rpm.

The separable units possess the qualities of skid mounting and self-containing. They are extensively employed in the production as they are easy to set up. Moreover, the initial costs are very small and they can be easily moved to various sites. The most striking aspect attached to it is that they are available in numerous sizes that are suitable for field gathering whether it is of onshore or offshore. The only factor that impedes the utilization of these separable compressors includes their higher maintenance costs as compared to integral compressors.

It has been observed that the reciprocating compressor is employed in the areas where there is a prerequisite of high pressure and low flow, particularly when the air is utilized for hand-tools, cleaning dust, small paint jobs, and commercial uses. Reciprocating Compressor Market is segmented by Applications as Refinery, Industrial Gases, LNG and CNG Transport and Storage, Ethylene and LDPE Plants, and Others.

Reciprocating Compressor Market is segmented by Geography as North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa. As far as the geography is concerned, North America is currently leading the market and it is simultaneously accounting for the largest share in the market.

Key players operating in the Reciprocating Compressor Market include Hitachi, Shenyang Yuanda, Gardner Denver, Sundyne, Shenyang Blower, Neuman & Esser, Ariel, Siemens, GE, Atlas Copco, Kobelco, Burckhardt Compression, Ingersoll Rand, Howden, Corken, KAESER, Mayekawa, and Fusheng.
