Rising Demand for Contaminant Free Air in Food and Beverages Industry to Bolster Growth
Compressed air has found a wide range of applications in the F&B industry. Air from compressors is used in the automated sorting of products, cleaning of packaging containers, vacuuming sealing products and much more. However, food and beverages companies need to ensure that the air that is used in processing and packaging should not contain oil, water or any other contaminants. Introduction of such contaminants to food products promotes a habitable environment for microorganism growth. Food and beverages companies are employing various techniques post subjecting the products to compressed air in order to prevent the growth of any unwanted microorganisms. Oil-free compressors offer companies an alternative to do away with the additional processes and save on costs. F&B companies are recognizing these benefits and are gradually opting for oil-free compressors over normal compressors. The factor is anticipated to provide a significant boost to the oil-free compressor market.
Burgeoning Demand for Reducing Operational Costs in Industries to Boost Oil-free Compressor Market Growth
The use of oil-free compressors entails an array of benefits that helps manufacturers in cutting down the overall operational costs and saving energy. In addition to the elimination of collecting and disposition of oil condensate, oil-free compressors enable manufacturers to save energy by avoiding downstream filtration and frequent oil changes. Oil-free compressors also help in slashing manufacturing costs by eliminating the need to replace oil separator elements used in other compressors. Furthermore, the compressors reduce the risk of compressed pipeline fires and requires less maintenance as compared to other compressors. The benefits offered by oil-free compressors coupled with the imposition of strict environmental regulations are driving the growth of the oil-free compressor market around the world.
Prospering Pharmaceutical Industry to Fuel Demand
Air Compressors form the backbone of pharmaceutical manufacturing processes and have found applications in product drying, nitrogen generation, cleaning, and material handling. It is essential for manufacturers to ensure that the air used in these processes is contaminant-free. The presence of contaminants can cause production shutdowns, expensive product recalls, and manufacturing disruptions. Pharmaceutical companies have to strictly adhere to the guidelines issued by regulatory authorities. Failing to do so not only impacts a company financially but also hurts its reputation. The pharmaceuticals industry is estimated to witness substantial growth in the foreseeable future. In addition to the rising innovations in drug delivery systems, drug manufacturing and discovery has been continuously expanding at an exponential rate. Growing researches for finding treatments for rare diseases has further bolstered the pharmaceuticals market. Oil-free compressors aid pharmaceutical manufacturers in complying with the health and safety regulations laid down by regulatory authorities while saving substantial operational costs. Oil-free compressor’s utility coupled with its low operational and installation costs is helping it garner popularity in the pharmaceuticals business which, in turn, is bolstering the oil-free compressor market growth.
Leading Market Players Banking on Innovation to Promote Products
Numerous firms across pharmaceuticals, electronics, and F&B verticals are on the look-out for oil-free compressors that can provide sensitive compressed oil-free air. To capitalize on the pervasive trend, leading players in the oil-free compressor market are focusing on developing innovative products. In line with the same, Sullair, a key player in the oil-free compressor market, launched an oil-free compressor equipped with unique emission technology. The newly launched product uses FDA-approved PTFE as a coating to enhance air end life and increase the compressions resistance to corrosion. In addition to these features, the oil compressor is lightweight and require low maintenance. These factors are driving the widespread adoption of oil-free compressors across multiple manufacturing verticals. To capitalize on the growing demand for oil-free compressors with added features, oil-free compressor market players are banking on innovation to extend their profits.
