    Market Insights

    The Automotive Seals Market is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.2% over the next five years to reach US$ 18.6 Billion in 2026.

    What are Seals?

    Seals are used to serve a multitude of functions including joining the joints, prevention of leakage, and exclusion of unnecessary particles. In the automotive industry, seals are used in many parts of a vehicle for filling the gap between two components to make sure that there is no leakage between them during the compression stage. Automotive seals come in different shapes and sizes and they are used in induction sealing, heating, stuffing, and adhesion of various parts in automobiles. The choice of materials to manufacture seals depends on the application and its requirements.

    Seals are small in size but undoubtedly one of the major components, especially where there is a greater need for high-temperature resistance and excellent corrosion resistance. The selection of material is dependent on several parameters including temperature resistance, lightweight, durability, strength, etc. Thermoplastics are gaining traction in the market because of their enormous advantages over others.
