Global gasket and seal demand will grow 5.5 percent annually through 2009 based on production gains for gasket- and seal-using products such as motor vehicles in most parts of the world. India and China will present the best prospects, followed by Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Africa/Mideast region.
This study analyzes the $30 billion world gasket and seal industry. It presents historical demand data (1994, 1999 and 2004) and forecasts to 2009 and 2014 by market (e.g., motor vehicles, industrial machinery, electrical and electronic equipment); by source (OEM, MRO); by product (gaskets, seals); by world geographic region (e.g., North America, Asia/Pacific, Western Europe); and for 31 major countries.
The study also considers market environment trends and indicators, details industry structure and producer market share, and profiles 39 leading competitors including Freudenberg, SKF, Federal-Mogul, and Cooper.
