The market is dominated by the oil-flooded type of compressors, which uses large amounts of oil and diesel.

There is also ongoing research on alternative fuels that can be used instead of diesel to reduce emission levels. The growth of this market is driven by certain factors like a strong economy, emergency outages, and customer preferences in renting equipment over purchasing. Major end user segments contributing to major demand include the construction sector and oil and gas sectors. Market restraints faced include lack of trained technicians, shortage of skilled operators, and general lack of awareness amongst end users.
