DUBLIN, April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The “Gas Compressors Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025“ report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global gas compressors market grew at a CAGR of around 7% during 2014-2019. A gas compressor refers to a mechanical device that increases the static pressure of a gas by reducing its volume. Some of the commonly used gas compressors include positive displacement and dynamic gas compressors. Positive displacement compressors include reciprocating and rotary variants that compress the gas by confining it in a closed space and increasing the pressure.
On the other hand, the dynamic compressor consists of an axial and centrifugal compressor that compresses the gas through the mechanical action of rotating vanes or impellers. These compressors are commonly used for gases, such as ethylene, fluorine, argon, hydrogen, nitrogen, xenon and silane. As a result, they find extensive applications across various industries, including general manufacturing, construction, oil & gas, mining, chemicals and petrochemicals and power generation.
