Market Dynamics

According to Market Research Future (MRFR)’s estimations, the reciprocating compressor market 2020 held the value of USD 6,497 million in the year 2018. MRFR also confirms that the market has the potential to advance at a rate of 5.14% during the evaluation period, which is between 2019 and 2025.

 Primary Boosters and Key Barriers

Reciprocating compressors are being increasingly deployed in the manufacturing of petroleum and chemicals. These compressors are used for transporting natural gas and compressing gas in these sectors. On top of that, reciprocating compressors are find widespread use in vast range of processes across different industries like power generation, pharmaceutical, chemicals, oil and gas, refrigeration and metal processing. With the steadily growing scope of application of reciprocating compressors, the global market is all set to progress relentlessly in the following period.

The skyrocketing demand for reciprocating compressors in LNG and CNG storage and transport plants as well as refinery can most likely result in stronger business growth during the appraisal period. Reciprocating compressors owns a number of desirable features including the ability to perform well in both high power and pressure. This is bound to lead to more product demand and higher revenue generation for reciprocating compressors in the following years.
