It is known that rotary compressors are mainly applied on residential air conditioners. However, high-power rotary compressors have started to take over the 3HP to 7HP of scroll compressor market in the recent two years, and started to enter the commercial refrigeration market from 2016. Concluded from the feedbacks of current manufacturers, the application of rotary compressors has been doubled compared with last year.
Like the invasion of hermetic scroll compressors in small horse power reciprocating compressor market, will rotary compressors have a massive impact on scroll compressor market in the future?
According to the current data, hermetic reciprocating compressors still dominate the light commercial market while semi-hermetic reciprocating, scroll and screw compressors are still the mainstream of the project of large split showcase and cooling house. However, you could not ignore the fact that the technology of the application of rotary compressor is quite developed.
The data of ChinaIOL shows that the current number of rotary compressors applied on commercial refrigeration equipment is close to scroll compressors, mainly applied on light commercial refrigerators. The compound growth rate of light commercial refrigerator has reached 11.7% in 2017.
Besides, rotary compressors also start to enter small refrigerator market. During the “13th Five-Year” period, the construction of small cooling house accelerates, providing an opportunity for the application of rotary compressor on cooling house.
In conclusion, the application of rotary compressors in refrigeration market is quite promising. With the popularity of product and constant boost of client recognition, the application of rotary compressor will be released rapidly in the future.
