In fact, it can be used for cleaning (usually used to get to hard-to-reach corners), for inflating (such as bicycle wheels), for painting (it is used as a spray gun for painting walls), for sandblasting (a technique used to clean and polish certain surfaces), and for various air tools such as for the grinder, sander, and drill.

As for the global market size of air compressors, this has been estimated at $32.02 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4 % from 2021 to 2028.
