Recovering Oil & Gas Sector Coupled with Large Scale Infrastructure Projects Would Propel the Growth of Air Compressor Market in Saudi Arabia - 6Wresearch

22 November, 2018

Air compressors are prominently used in the oil & gas industry and with the presence of two major oil companies, Saudi ARAMCO and SABIC, Saudi Arabia is one of the most promising markets for air compressors in the GCC region. Government initiatives to reduce dependence on oil sector revenues and increase reliance on the non-oil sector are acting as a major step for the transformation of the national economy. The GDP of Saudi Arabia declined by 0.7% in 2017, however, it is expected to grow by 1.7% in 2018 majorly due to certain key government plans such as Saudi Vision 2030, which would further boost the demand for air compressors over the coming years.

According to 6Wresearch, Saudi Arabia Air Compressor Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.1% during 2018-24. The Saudi Arabian government is taking initiatives for the restructuring of the country's non-oil economy by investing in commercial and industrial sectors. The country's non-oil government revenues increased by 1.5% in 2017 as compared to the previous year, and are further expected to expand by 3.7%. As a result, infrastructure development under the Saudi Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Program 2020 would create new avenues for the application of air compressors in the country over the coming years.

According to Rachit Gulati, Senior Research Analyst - IT & Electronics, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch, "Rotary air compressor systems have a strong demand mainly on account of their energy-efficiency, movability and cost-effectiveness. The rising demand for energy efficient air compressors along with growth in infrastructure, housing and commercial sectors in the country would continue to drive the market for this segment of air compressors in future."

"Centrifugal air compressor units are expected to gain a stronger foothold in the Saudi Arabia air compressor market over the next six years owing to their widespread use in heavy duty industrial applications and in the oil & gas sector.", Rachit further added.

According to Akshay Thakur, Research Associate IT & Electronics, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch, "The oil & gas sector accounted for the highest revenue share in the overall air compressor market in Saudi Arabia in 2017 owing to the use of heavy-duty centrifugal and reciprocating air compressors in the segment."

"Saudi Arabia has a pipeline of notable upcoming projects such as Ras Alkhair Power Plant Phase -2, and South Jeddah Ext. Power Plant Phase-2, primarily in the cities of Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam, which in turn would boost the demand for air compressors in the construction sector domain.", Akshay further added.
