Oil Free Air Compressor Market

Oil Free Air Compressor Market Is Expected to Be Flourished by Its Application in Semiconductor Manufacturing

Oil free air compressors are the most technically advanced compressors that eliminate lubricant and contaminants from compressed air. They find key applications in semiconductor manufacturing wherein purity and quality of compressed air is of utmost importance. Semiconductors are made on large silicon wafers or substrates and require high purity compressed air and other gases during their manufacturing processes like etching, drying, film deposition etc. Even minor contamination from lubricants or other particles can ruin batches of semiconductor devices. Oil free compressors ensure supply of oil and particle free compressed air at required pressure to sustain semiconductor fabrication processes and yield high quality finished products.

The global oil free air compressor market was valued at US$ 20 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.0% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by CoherentMI
