Automotive Air Compressor Market

Automotive Air Compressor Market : Global Industry Analysis 2016 - 2020 and Opportunity Assessment 2021 - 2031

Market Overview

Automotive Air Compressors are crucial equipment which assist in energy savings, low power consumption and low operating costs. It is considered as prime utility in an automotive manufacturing plant.  In an air-conditioning system, the compressor is the power unit which compresses low pressure low temperature refrigerant into high pressure high temperature gas.

Along with air conditioning of automobiles, it is an integral component in vehicular air brakes, turbochargers, tire inflators and superchargers. It also provides pneumatic power to different tools such as nail guns, sandblasters, blow guns, air sanders, spray guns and many other tools required for operation in an automotive plant. It converts power into potential kinetic energy which can be later stored as pressurized air.

Automotive Air Compressor Market: Market Dynamics

Automotive Air Compressor is used in every phase of an automotive production line from the assembly stage to the paint area, press stage and body shop stage. The different areas where an Automotive Air Compressor is used include pneumatic conveying, air-conditioning, plasma cutting, painting, car testing, tire inflation and air-conditioning.

Such demands have proliferated the usage of Automotive Air Compressor in the industry and surged their production. Moreover, the automotive facilities in today’s world, have different standards and protocols for operation. With the increasing labor cost day-by-day, cost of tools, maintenance cost and cost of raw materials, re-work has become expensive.

In such applications, Automotive Air Compressors are seeking usage by automotive professionals.The rental services in the Automotive Air Compressors have put a minor restraint in the market growth. Moreover replacement rate ranges from 4% for 10-12 year old vehicles to 2% for 4-6 year old vehicles with hefty replacement procedures which need to be performed professionally. T

hese factors are negatively impacting the market growth.The Automotive Air Compressor market has a lot of growth opportunities as the concern towards environment-friendliness is increasing. An automobile utilizing energy from an air compressor is considered as an environmentally friendly vehicle of the future.

By adopting the usage of Automotive Air Compressors, the shift towards green energy is initiated. Due to Automotive Air Compressors, production has multi-folded across the automotive industries at speeds that would be impossible if the tasks were solely done by manual efforts.

As countries outside the G8, are tending to develop a domestic manufacturing base to compete in regional and international markets, the use of Automotive Air Compressors is rapidly spreading throughout these areas. Over the next decade, these areas are likely possible to develop themselves into one of the most attractive markets for manufacturing of Automotive Air Compressors.

COVID-19 Impact

As new social measures were introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic, consumer sentiments towards the automotive industry turned negative. The market reaped benefits from a strong pipeline of new products introduced by leading brands last year but a number of automotive production facilities were halted and now discontinued across the globe.

In few countries such as China, Vietnam and Japan the automotive market is recovering whereas in Germany, UK and some ASEAN countries like Indonesia, the plants are forced to reduce output due to disruption caused by global pandemic.

Such fluctuating scenarios had severely impacted the Automotive Air Compressors market in COVID hit year but now it is gradually recovering and seeks new avenues for global growth.
