Global Centrifugal Compressors Market - 2019-2026
Centrifugal compressors are the radial compressors that convert the kinetic energy to a potential energy/static pressure. These compressors are available in axial and radial split units. The centrifugal compressors run at speeds between 20,000 and 30,000 RPM. These compressors are driven by either engine or turbine. The centrifugal compressors are used for the plant air compression and in air separation industries. These compressors are useful in small gas turbines. The global centrifugal compressors market valued USD XX million in 2018 and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% to reach USD XX million by 2026.
The market is driven by the rising demand for centrifugal compressors in the petrochemical industry due to their advantages such as smooth operation, large tolerance of process fluctuations, and their higher reliability in comparison to the other types of compressors. The centrifugal compressors are easily automated for remote operations, easily skid mounted, and self-contained. The centrifugal compressors are an ideal choice in comparison to the reciprocating compressors due to the lower initial costs, lower maintenance costs of centrifugal compressors.
There is an increase in the launch of the centrifugal compressors. For instance, in January 2020, Ingersoll Rand had launched the new generation of MSG Turbo-Air 2000 Centrifugal Compressor for the Indian market. MSG TURBO-AIR 2000 has the capability to cater flow capacity from 505 CFM to 1700 CFM with a pressure range from 3.5 Barg to 10 Barg. The new compressor ensures zero oil contamination and is powered by Ingersoll Rand’s technology that offers high reliability, better efficiencies, and ease of operations.
In October 2018, ATLAS Copco had launched the ZH 1000-3150 oil-free centrifugal air compressor which is designed to meet the needs of the air separation industry for a larger centrifugal air compressor delivered in a standard package. The ZH 1000-3150 oil-free centrifugal air compressor provides the optimum combination of high flow and low energy consumption. It is an all-in-one oil-free air compressor with all the elements including the internal piping, coolers, motor, lubrication, inlet guide vanes, and control system are supplied in a standard package in a built-to-last design. It is easy to install. Moreover, its commissioning is quick. It comprised of the optional features that provide the customization to a specific production environment. The ZH 1000-3150 allows a turndown of over 25% before blow-off, maximizing energy savings and minimizing operating costs.
The market is witnessing the technological advancement for the development of the centrifugal compressors. For instance, in May 2015, GE Oil & Gas had developed the next-generation roots advanced efficiency centrifugal compressor to significantly boost the energy efficiency of industrial air/gas and wastewater applications. This compressor would help the operators to reduce plant energy consumption.
The global centrifugal compressors market is segmented based on the product type as single-stage centrifugal compressors and multi-stage centrifugal compressors. The single-stage centrifugal compressors segment is expected to have a significant market share of XX% in 2019. There is growing adoption of the single-stage centrifugal compressors for various applications such as petrochemicals, refineries, and oil & gas. The single-stage centrifugal compressors comprised of the beam design or an overhung impeller arrangement. These compressors are the combination of one impeller with its associated inlet guide vane and diffuser. The single-stage centrifugal compressors have ease of maintenance, and simple. These centrifugal compressors have rigid construction for lower maintenance requirements and less time required to replace parts.
The multi-stage centrifugal compressors segment is expected to have positive market growth over the forecasted period. The multi-stage centrifugal compressors are useful for the compression solutions in low, medium, and high-pressure services such as low-molecular-weight gases and refrigeration industries.
Further, the market is also classified based on end-users as oil and gas, power sector, petrochemical and chemical industries, and others. The oil and gas segment accounts for the highest market share due to the higher usage of the centrifugal compressors in the oil and gas industries. There is a rising availability of highly reliable centrifugal compressors optimized for efficiency and compliant with the industry’s toughest standards. There is high usage of the centrifugal compressors in a large number of different compression applications in oil and gas. The centrifugal compressors are designed to operate in the harsh environments found in critical production processes. The centrifugal compressors comprised of lower installation and maintenance costs.
By region, the global centrifugal compressors market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa. Among all of the regions, Asia-Pacific dominated the global centrifugal compressors market and expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period as there is the high growth of the oil& gas and power industries. There is growing development of the infrastructures for the oil& gas and power industries with the growing demand for power. There is a growing development of power generation plants especially the gas-fired generation plants. China accounts for the highest market share of XX% in 2019 owing to the high usage of the centrifugal compressors for powering the long-distance natural gas pipeline. According to the National Development and Reform Commission, China has 112,000 kilometers of oil and gas pipelines and the country would need to build another 128,000 kilometers of pipeline in the next few years. The pipeline networks for crude oil and refined oil is expected to be expanded to 37,000 kilometers and 40,000 kilometers by 2025. The increasing number of floating production storage and offloading (FPSOs) projects shall boost the demand for centrifugal compressors.
