Russia Reciprocating Compressor Market: Snapshot

The oil and natural gas industry in Russia accounts for the majority of the country’s GDP and export earnings and the performance of this sector directly impacts the market for reciprocating compressors in Russia.

The Russian oil and natural gas sector boasts of the increased presence of blue chip companies. This has substantially raised the demand for equipment that is directly or indirectly involved in subsea applications in exploration and production (E&P) practices. Subsequently, the Russia market for reciprocating compressors has received a significant boost. The market is projected to rise from a value of US$227.1 mn in 2015 to reach US$352.6 mn by 2024. If these values hold true, the reciprocating compressors market is forecast to expand at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2016 to 2024.

Local manufacturers of reciprocating compressors in Russia have faced numerous hurdles owing to the lack of sustainability to cope up with international standards and quality benchmarks. Furthermore, the fragile political scenario has resulted in a significantly lower demand from local compressor manufacturers.

Transparency Market Research states that the reciprocating compressors market in Russia is anticipated to pick up pace only if manufacturers across the globe advance their technological innovations and develop maintenance-free compressors with greater efficiency.

Oil and Gas Industry Leading End User despite Various Challenges

The oil and gas industry is by far the leading end user of reciprocating compressors in Russia and the share of this segment is pegged to be over 42% by 2024. This sector is also anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period – a healthy 6.4% from 2016 to 2024. However, the oil and gas sector in Russia has been facing a storm of challenges mainly due to the stagnant European market, expensive Asian projects, and strict Western sanctions. This has resulted in limited investments and innovations within key technological segments of the oil and gas industry.

The LNG industrial sector has been identified as highly opportunistic by Transparency Market Research. On the other hand, end users such as chemical, petrochemicals, industrial metallic tools, and metal processing are predicted to register mediocre growth over the course of the forecast period.

Industrial Process Gas Reciprocating Compressors Segment to Retain Lead Through 2024

Among the major types of compressors, industrial process gas reciprocating compressors took the lead in the Russia reciprocating compressor market in 2015 and this segment is likely to retain its top position through 2024. LNG reciprocating compressors, on the other hand, are likely to emerge as the fastest growing segment by type, expanding at a 5.3% CAGR from 2016 to 2024.

Some of the prominent players with a strong foothold in the Russia reciprocating compressors market are Atlas Copco AB, Kobelco Compressors Corporation, Dresser Rand Group Inc., Howden Group Ltd., and General Electric (Oil & Gas) Co. Other key players include Leobersdorfer Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co.KG, Burckhardt Compression AG, Neuman & Esser Group, KwangShin Machinery Co. Ltd., BORSIG ZM Compression GmbH, Ariel Corporation, and SIAD Macchine Impianti S.p.A.
