Air motors are also termed as pneumatic motors. In this motor, mechanical work is done by expanding compressed air. This type of motor usually transmutes the compressed air energy to mechanical work through either rotary or linear motion. Rotary motion is generated by a piston type air motor,gear air motor, or vane type air motor while linear motion is generated from piston actuator or diaphragm. Each type of motor has different function from each other. For example, diesel or natural gas engines are started by using vane type of air motor that produces rotary motion. The working of air motor is dependent on the inlet pressure, which gives the linear output torque vs speed relationship. Air motors have been used for past couple of centuries, ranging in size from hand-held to engines going up to several hundred horsepower. A vast variety of design in motors are available depending upon the application of its end user.


Tire shops use air motors to operate air guns. These motors are also used in hand-held tools such as drills, grinders, ratchets, sanders, cutters, and wrenches. The air motors in hand-held tools are very small as compared to those used for heavy industrial purposes. Even if the power of hand-held tools with air motors is considerably low, they are occasionally used instead of their electric counterparts as they are light and compact. In addition, they do not even need to be charged like other electric tools. Air motors do not take excess time to start and give the desired output. Hence these are considered to be more reliable compared to other motors. There is low wear of the engine ring gear while working with air motor. Air motors have considerably long life than other motors. These motors do notproduce any sparks ordo not overheat, so in sensitive area there is no risk of fire or explosion. Air motors work completely fine considering its safety in critical environment like extreme temperature and high vibrations as it is very less sensitive to such unfavorable service conditions. The motors are accessible to in field repair if needed. Air motors have high energy efficiency. They also have 5 to 6 times higher power-to-weight ratio compared to electrical motors. They can operate in any position and in both directions, clockwise and anti-clockwise. Air motors are continuously cooled by the supplied air expansion, which prevents it from heating even at high speed. Due to such advantages their application is very flexible over a wide range. Such qualities of the air motors have low initial cost and very low operating cost, thus initiating the adoption for various applications in small-scale operations as well.

Demand for air motors with fastening capabilities and variable torques is increased over recent years. In addition, increased in investment on superior and advanced industrial tools and systems has surged the demand forair motors. Its capacity and performance efficiency in adverse and hazardous situations with low fuel consumption boosts the growth of the air motor market. On the other hand, the speed of the motor varies when the loads are changeable, which can cause problems in the operating time of the system. These motors also are noisy while operating and cannot be used is noise sensitive zones like hospitals and sound recording studios. There is increase in usage of vane type air motor because of its attributes of operating cycle. Further, increase in demand for air motors inthe oil & gas industry is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. Also, continuous attempts are being made to increase the use of air motors in transportation industry.

The global air motor market is segmented into type, application, and region. By type, it is categorized as vane air motors, piston air motors, and gear air motors. By application, it is differentiated by automotive, chemical, packaging, and others (healthcare, printing, and paint finishing).
