Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst type, the volume compressor segment held the significant share of the market in 2022.”

Based on type, the market is bifurcated into volume compressor and speed compressor.  Amongst volume diving compressors and speed diving compressors, volume diving compressors hold the majority of the market share and are most widely in use for diving. They are in high demand due to their ability to efficiently compress large volumes of air quickly and effectively. Many modern diving compressors now feature electronic controls that enable precise regulation of air pressure and flow rate. The high demand for volume diving compressors is attributed to several factors such as ease of use, where Volume diving compressors are relatively easy to use and maintain, making them a popular choice for recreational divers. Furthermore, Volume diving compressors are often smaller and lighter than speed diving compressors, making them easier to transport to dive sites. Additionally, Volume-diving compressors are able to compress larger volumes of air faster and more efficiently than speed-diving compressors. Moreover, Volume diving compressors tend to last longer than speed diving compressors due to their simpler design and fewer moving parts. Furthermore, several technological advances are also taking place in this space where companies are coming up with innovative ideas, which are also making the volume compressors more reliable and safe to use further raising the demand. For instance, Modern diving compressors are made from lightweight yet strong materials, such as aluminum or titanium, which enhance their portability and durability. Some advanced diving compressors are equipped with automatic shutoff features that turn off the compressor when it is no longer needed, saving energy and extending its lifespan


“Amongst application, the recreational segment is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period (2023-2030).”

Based on application, the market is segmented into fishing, rescue, recreational, and others. Recreational activities generate the maximum demand for diving compressors. Recreational activities have become a significant part of modern society, providing numerous benefits to individuals and communities alike. The notable factor that has increased the spending towards recreational activities is stress relief, where many people find that engaging in recreational activities helps to reduce stress and improve mental health. Outdoor activities like scuba diving allow individuals to connect with nature and disconnect from technology. Furthermore, engaging in recreational activities can also promote personal growth and self-improvement. For example, learning a new skill or taking on a challenge can build confidence and resilience, which also makes scuba diving a popular sport, especially in coastal regions.
