Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Compressor Rental Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Compressor Rental Market: Aggreko, Atlas Copco, Caterpillar, Hertz Equipment, Ingersoll Rand, Sunbelt Rentals, and United Rentals.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ACME Fab-Con, AirParts Compressores, Ar Brasil Compressores, Blueline Rental, Cramo, Coates Hire, and Ramirent.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Compressor manufacturers are designing and developing air compressors that make use of variable speed technology and also have a special drive that controls the speed. A VSD automatically controls compressor operation based on user requirement for compressed air. The excellent energy efficiency provided by this type of air compressor is attributed to its continuous and real-time operational nature. This helps in reducing the demand for electric power and fuel, thus aiding in decreasing the emission levels.”

According to the report, compressed air is used to drive pneumatic power tools. Pneumatic power tools include nailers/staplers, drills and screwdrivers, impact wrenches, and percussion tools. These tools are safer to operate and maintain compared to electric power tools. They have a higher power-to-weight ratio that allows smaller and lighter tools to accomplish a complex task quickly. Moreover, the general grade pneumatic power tools with a shorter lifespan, also known as disposable tools in the tooling industry, are cheaper; whereas, industrial-grade power tools with a longer lifespan are expensive.

Further, the report states that vendors have to deal with price fluctuation of raw materials, which is a significant challenge, to remain competitive in the market.
