Gaskets And Seals Market Size & Trends

The global gaskets and seals market size was estimated at USD 60.77 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% from 2024 to 2030. The global market is expected to be driven by the growth of the aerospace and automotive industry. In addition, the utilization of advanced materials in the production of gaskets and seals for key applications, including chemical processing, medical equipment, and aircraft manufacturing, is expected to drive product growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, the market for gaskets and seals is likely to benefit from the increasing growth of the products for reducing vibrations in electrical & electronic components.

U.S. Gaskets and Seals market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The U.S. market is anticipated to advance at a CAGR of 3.6% from 2024 to 2030, owing to the continuous rise in demand for consumer durable goods coupled with the launch of advanced technological products. In addition, the rising use of high-value and better-performing gaskets and seals in OEM installations is expected to boost market growth.

Gaskets and seals are manufactured from various materials, including metals, thermoplastics, elastomers, ceramics, glass, and concrete. The material used determines the properties of gaskets and seals, such as strength, durability, and thermal and chemical resistance. Key raw materials used for manufacturing gaskets and seals include stainless steel, aluminum, thermoplastic elastomers, and titanium.

Product distribution in the industry takes place primarily due to the direct sales channels, as the majority of gaskets and seals used by end-user industries are customized. However, the companies also operate through a dedicated network of third-party distributors and suppliers, which is done primarily to increase the company's operational area.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market growth stage is low, and the pace of market growth is accelerating. The development of automated gasketing technologies with advanced features coupled with convenient, repeatable, and precise applications has improved production output. In addition, the emergence of 3D printing techniques for manufacturing gaskets and seals is anticipated to feature low turnaround time and multi-material options and prints.

Gaskets And Seals Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is governed by many regulations that specify their production, application, and installation. Several entities laying regulations and standards on gaskets and seals production include Food and Drug Administration (FDA), ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials), and Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).

The market witnesses a very low threat of substitution as no commercially viable substitute is available for gaskets and seals. In addition, the emergence of advanced technologies, including robotic programming coupled with automated dispensing in FIP liquid gaskets, is expected to cause internal substitution. However, superior characteristics exhibited by metallic and semi-metallic gaskets in heavy-duty applications are anticipated to propel their demand over the forecast period.

Product Insights

The seals segment dominated the market in 2023 with a revenue share of 60.2%. Packing seals are widely used in power transmitting shafts of a rotating machine. The product is used in a variety of applications, such as consumer devices, industrial plant equipment, ships, automobiles, and rockets. These seals prevent the leakage of fluid used in the machine to the external environment. Thus, rise of electronics and automotive production globally is anticipated to fuel the demand for mechanical seals over the forecast period.

The gaskets product segment is anticipated to witness growth at a CAGR of 4.7% over the forecast period. The gaskets have a wide range of applications, including water purifiers, water softeners, filtering systems, and demineralization. In addition, metallic gaskets are majorly used in high-temperature and pressure applications such as water heaters, steam pressure vessels, generators, treatment vessels, and steam humidifiers. Moreover, these gaskets handle pressure and temperature fluctuations, bolt stress relaxation, and creep, which are further expected to witness an increase in demand over the coming years.

Application Insights

The automotive segment held the largest market revenue share of 33.2% in 2023. The automotive gaskets and seals are used extensively in engine applications of an automobile, including powertrain, chassis, exhaust manifolds, and other components. Interior applications in an automobile include sealing instrument panels, sunroofs, headliners, interior door panels, visor mirror glass, and fuse boxes. Thus, wide application of seals in interiors coupled with consumers' growing affinity toward electronics in automobiles is anticipated to drive product growth.

Application of gaskets and seals in aerospace is expected to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. MRO activities for aircraft are likely to increase over the forecast period, thus driving the demand for gaskets and seals, propelling the market growth. Factors such as pricing pressures from aircraft OEMs and the growth of high-margin aftermarket services are expected to drive M&A activity globally. This has further pushed the suppliers to consolidate for scale and cost-effectiveness. In addition, the development of engineered plastics and elastomers for manufacturing seals in aerospace applications is also likely to drive the replacement of conventional seals and gaskets.

End-use Insights

The OEM segment dominated the market in 2023 with a revenue share of 60.1%. In industrial applications, OEMs need a wide range of gaskets and seals in a variety of thicknesses to meet different product criteria. The marine industry OEM requires more than fluid or water resistance properties through their cushioning and gasketing system to withstand physical shocks, weather vibrations, intense temperature fluctuations, and more to protect industrial duty applications.

Global Gaskets and Seals market share and size, 2023

The aftersales market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% over the forecast period. Gaskets and seals are considered an important part of any engine repair and can prevent leakage of fuel, coolants, and gases and are single-use items. They are replaced each time as these fluids and gases are removed from the engine. A sizeable number of gaskets and seals are required with any major repair in the system, thereby raising the revenue of the gasket and seals through the aftermarket distribution channel.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the market with a revenue share of 45.2% in 2023 and it is further expected to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Factors such as robust economic growth, increasing business investment, and substantial gains in manufacturing output have been driving the growth of the market in the region over the past years, especially in countries such as China and Japan. In addition, demand is further expected to increase in developing countries, such as India, owing to the expansion of the manufacturing sector coupled with growing foreign investments.

Gaskets And Seals Market Trends, by Region, 2024 - 2030

Middle East & Africa is anticipated to witness significant market growth. Increasing foreign investments in the automotive sector in the Middle East are expected to open the market for seals in automotive applications over the forecast period. The government of Saudi Arabia is making efforts to boost the growth of non-oil industries, thereby, driving the manufacturing sector in the country. Therefore, presence of a robust oil and gas sector coupled with an expected rise in the manufacturing sector is anticipated to drive the demand for sealing products over the forecast period.
