Market Overview

The global gaskets and seals market is projected to register a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period (2021-2026).

The market is hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic, as lockdowns, social distances, and trade sanctions triggered massive disruptions to global supply chain networks. The automobile, oil and gas, electronics industries witnessed a decline due to the halt in the activities. For instance, according to OICA, automobile production declined by around 16% in 2020 compared to 2019, which negatively impacted the market growth of the gaskets and seals market.

  • Over the medium term, the major factors driving the growth of the gaskets and seals market are the increase in the use of gaskets and seals in the oil and gas industry and increasing demand from the chemical and petrochemical sector.
  • On the flip side, the declining automotive production and stagnant industrial growth in developed countries are likely to hinder the growth of the market.
  • Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global market, owing to huge demand from countries like China and India.

Key Market Trends

The Automotive Industry to Dominate the Market

  • Gaskets and seals are the components utilized in vehicles to check fluid and gas leakage. They fill the gap between the automotive components, assuring no leakage, blocking lubricants from leaving the bearings, dodging dust and other contaminants from penetrating the machinery.
  • With the technological progressions, gaskets and seals offer an efficient means to achieve better fuel economy. They have decreased the repair and maintenance requirement, thereby increasing the average life span of automotive components.
  • Furthermore, the rigorous regulations regarding the maximum limit of emission of harmful gases such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide as incorporated by automotive agencies and bureaus are further anticipated to drive the market.
  • Materials that can increase fuel efficiency and resist high heat and pressure are gaining popularity in the global gaskets and seal market. There has been an increased usage of lightweight materials such as silicone rubber to further lower fuel costs and improve efficiency.
  • The global automotive industry has been witnessing a declining growth since 2018. The production has been declined by 5.2% and 16% in 2019 and 2020, respectively. The trend is expected to continue in the coming years.
  • Moreover, the manufacturers are concentrating on enhancing the fuel economy by offering lightweight, easy to assemble, and upgraded quality automotive gaskets and seals components.
  • Thus, the declining automotive industry is likely to negatively affect the gaskets and seals market over the forecast period.
Gaskets and Seals Market Share

Asia-Pacific Region Dominate the Market

  • In Asia-Pacific, the factors that add to the growth of the market are accelerated industrialization and augmented demand from numerous end-use industries such as oil and gas and petrochemical. However, the decline in automobile production in the region has been negatively affecting the growth.
  • According to OICA, automobile production in China and India witnessed a decline of 2% and 25%, respectively, in 2020 compared to 2019.
  • China is a hub for chemical processing, accounting for a major chunk of the chemicals produced globally. With the growing demand for various chemicals globally, the demand for gasket and seals from this sector is projected to grow during the forecast period.
  • China has plans to expand its network of inter-country pipelines, with new pipeline connections to Central Asia and Russia. China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) plans to complete major sections of the massive Russian oil and gas pipelines in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang.
  • India has now been ranked sixth among the world's ten largest manufacturing countries. The petrochemical industry contributes about 30 percent of raw material to the chemical industry, which is expected to reach USD 300 billion by 2025. The petrochemical industry is expected to cross the USD 100 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 14%.
  • Furthermore, factors such as the growing industrial, electrical, and electronics sectors in the developing economies, including China, India, and ASEAN countries, are further expected to boost the demand for gaskets and seals in the region.
  • All these factors are projected to impact the market growth in the region during the forecast period.
