Growth of Oil and Mining Industries in North America

Growth associated with the oil industry and natural gas production in North America is a prominent factor that may fuel the market demand during the forecast period. According to EIA's Annual Energy Outlook, the U.S. crude output is going to increase by 20% by 2030, and the demand for natural gas is estimated to attain around 15.6% of growth over the next few years. Further, expenditure by the U.S. oil and gas companies is expected to increase during the forecast period. Natural gas is gaining importance as the preferred fuel option, owing to its low emission and low-cost properties. Thus, many projects in North America are currently focusing on exploration of the same. There are more than 14,000 small and large oil & gas companies in the U.S. alone. Air compressors have wide-scale application in the oil and mining industries, which may act as a driver for the air compressor industry.
 
Impact of Pollution and Stringent Regulatory Standards

Blowdown from air compressor, air contamination, and noise pollution hinder the adoption of air compressors in North America. Pollutants released can lead to a severe impact on the environment, workplace, and the product. Aerosols, condensed water, solid contamination, and others are some of the types of contamination that may cause environmental concerns, if not properly managed, which may restrain the market. However, key industry players and regulatory authorities are determined to reduce the impact of environmental hazards. For instance, in June 2017, Atlas Copco launched a range of oil-injected rotary screw air compressors. These compressors are powerful and are responsible for minimal noise pollution. Further, various industry standards such as ISO8573 Series, ISO12500 Series, ISO7183 Series, and others deal in this category. In addition, other industry standards, such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18001, were introduced to improve quality standards by The International Organization for Standardization. Further, changing regulatory structure has affected the North America air compressor market adversely. For instance, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published some new rules in 2017 related to testing of rotary screw compressors.
