Increasing demand for high-purity air in several critical applications such as food & beverage, healthcare etc. will propel the demand for compressed air treatment equipment during the forecast timeframe.
Contamination in high-pressure or treated air results in major performance and reliability problems during end-use operations. The end-use industries require high-quality, contamination free high-pressure or treated air. In food & beverage industry, contamination-free air supply is required for food-filling machines, product handling, fluid pumps, cold storage systems, etc. Whereas high quality-air is used for oxygen supply for patients, patient simulators, sterilizing & autoclaves, hospital headwalls, powering dental tools, dental milling machines, etc. in the healthcare industry. Development in these end-use industries will boost the development in compressed air treatment equipment market.
