Compressor oils are specially formulated fluids that provide lubrication to the moving metal parts of the air compressor. The type of oil to be used depends upon the demand of the compressor and the gas to be compressed. Compressor oils avail various applications like performance improvement, protective surface film to decrease friction, serves as a sealing fluid, minimizes the deposition of harmful compounds, absorb the heat of compression as direct contact coolant, and others. The use of compressor oils provide different advantages such as high film strength, reduces energy consumption, longer oil life, corrosion resistance, synthetic solvency, and others.
The compressor oils market is a growing market driven by the increased demand from the end users. The augment need of compressor oils from the manufacturing industry and increased demands for screw compressors fuel the growth of the market. Asia-Pacific leads the compressor oils market followed by North America and Europe due to the increase in growth of industrialization and augment demand of compressor oils by the end user industries such as automotive, oil & gas, power, and manufacturing industry. This market is expected to register a moderate growth in the near future. However, factors such as increase in the prices of synthetic and bio-based compressor oils and rise in the demand for oil-free compressors are expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.
