Gaskets & Seals

As Quoted In MRO Machinery & Equipment

Demand will be driven by growing industrial production and capital spending, as well as by rising demand for more expensive sealing products made from advanced materials.

US demand to rise 3.8% annually through 2018

The US market for gaskets and seals is expected to expand 3.8 percent annually through 2018 to $10.6 billion. Gasket and seal manufacturers will benefit from solid increases in motor vehicle output, machinery production, and capital spending. Rising demand for more expensive sealing products made from advanced materials will also boost market value. However, greater utilization of better performing, longer lasting gaskets and seals will have a mixed effect on demand as initial value gains will be somewhat offset by decreased aftermarket sales opportunities.

Compression, molded packings to be fastest growing products

Compression packings and molded seals and packings will register some of the most rapid sales advances among sealing products, while demand for expanded graphite gaskets will grow the fastest among gasket products. Sales of compression packings and molded seals and packings will be fueled primarily by a favorable outlook for machinery output. Higher demand for products that provide increased temperature resistance and durability, like the polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) seals introduced in 2014 by Freudenberg-NOK and Oz Seals, will further support dollar gains. Rising motor vehicle output and machinery production will spur demand for expanded graphite gaskets, which will continue to replace more traditional gasketing materials in a number of motor vehicle and machinery applications due to their superior chemical and temperature resistance.

Electrical, electronic products to be fastest growing market

Electrical and electronic products are forecast to post the most rapid gains of any major gasket and seal market through 2018. Higher output of measuring and controlling instruments, as well as an upturn in computer and electronic equipment production after an extended period of decline, will bolster product demand. However, due to their much larger size, the motor vehicle and machinery markets will provide greater sales opportunities for gasket and seal suppliers. Increases in motor vehicle production, as well as in the number of motor vehicles in use, will stimulate associated gasket and seal demand. Greater use of better performing, higher-priced gaskets and seals will further boost sales in value terms. Manufacturers of gaskets and seals used in the machinery industry will benefit from continued growth in capital spending and a strong aftermarket created by harsh operating environments. Original equipment manufacturing (OEM) applications accounted for two-thirds of all gasket and seal demand in 2013.

Study coverage

This Freedonia industry study, Gaskets & Seals, presents historical demand data for 2003, 2008 and 2013, and forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by product (nonmetallic gaskets, metallic gaskets, body seals, molded seals and packings, shaft seals, compression packings) and market (e.g., motor vehicles, machinery, electrical and electronic products, aerospace equipment, marine and rail equipment). The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 33 industry players, including Parker-Hannifin, Freudenberg and Federal-Mogul.
