Global Rotary Lobe Compressors Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

Global Rotary Lobe Compressors Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

Rotary lobe compressors have been in industrial use since the late 1800s. Since then, the application of rotary lobe compressors has expanded to many different applications, and hundreds of different companies make them. These type of compressors were majorly used in mills like grain, rice or flour mill. However, these compressors are now extensively used in applications such as pneumatic conveying, aeration in ETP, cement plants, water treatment plants for filter backwash, aquaculture, aeration, etc. Due its advantages like higher efficiency at moderate compression ratios and very little maintenance, these compressors now have a significant market share in global compressor market.

Growth in End-User Industry - Driving the Market

Rotary lobe compressors find use in applications, which require relatively constant flow rate at varying discharge pressures. These compressors are widely used for air compressor applications and are typically used for such applications where the volume of air moved is large, compared to its pressure. They are extensively used in applications, such as pneumatic conveying, aeration in effluent treatment plants, cement plants, water treatment plants for filter backwash, aquaculture, steel plants, amongst others. Hence, rapid industrialization, growing population, and improving economic activities across the globe, is expected to boost industrial sectors where rotary lobe compressors are heavily deployed. Moreover, a recovery in industrial activity has coincided with a pickup in global trade, after two years of marked weakness.

North America Among the Fastest Growing Region for Rotary Lobe Compressor Market

The North American landscape is full of opportunities for suppliers of rotary lobe compressors. The end-user industries, such as ETP, WTP, cement industry, and other manufacturing sectors where lobe compressors are heavily deployed, have had significant investments in this region. However, industries like aluminum had been underperforming and had failed to gain momentum since the drop in aluminum production in 2013. In 2017, North American annual aluminum production was 3,953,008 metric tons, as compared to 4,917,202 metric tons, in 2013. As aluminum industry is the major end user of rotary lobe compressors, the growth in this sector will be an important factor for driving the market. The United States contributes for more than three-fourths of industrial activities in North America, and will dominate the region in future, in terms of production as well as consumption. On the other side, the Canadian and Mexican manufacturing sectors have gained pace in recent years, mainly because of improving numbers for oil, coal, and metal products. With improving economic conditions and influx of technological advancement, the overall industrial sector is expected to witness a growth during forecast period, and is likely to drive the rotary lobe compressor market.

China’s Recovering Economy and Rapid Industrial Growth is Creating Opportunities for Lobe Compressor Manufacturers

Industrial output in China grew 7.6% on a year-over-year basis in March 2017, compared to a 6.3% rise in January 2017. It recorded its fastest growth since December 2014, as output expanded at a faster pace in March 2017. Moreover, the manufacturing sector grew 8% in March 2017, an increase of 9% from February 2017. This rapid growth in 2017 is largely attributed to the deepening of cuts in over-capacity and cost reduction efforts. On the flip side, mining sector is expected to see a slump in the near future and may witness lower investments as compared to other sectors.

Key Developments in the Market
