    Market Highlights

    Automotive profile seals are used around the doors and windows of automobiles to keep the dust and water out of the vehicle. These seals need to be unaffected by climatic conditions and varying temperatures. The automotive industry has been experiencing the most disruptive journey in the past decades with the key emerging areas are autonomous, emission-free mobility, fuel efficiency, sharing, and connected vehicles. Almost all the major automakers are putting efforts into the development of vehicles addressing most of these trends. 

    The automotive production declined in 2018 as well as in 2019 and was expecting to start rebounding from 2020 onwards. However, the sudden outburst of the pandemic trashed the market hope. As a result of that, there was an enormous decline in the production of automobiles across regions. The grave impact of this was registered across the supply chain including the level of components.

    Automotive Profile seals, a sizeable market, could not escape from such trends and witnessed a colossal decline (-15%+ in 2020) amid the pandemic, quite aligned with the decline in automobile production. However, the industry is gradually rebounding in the year 2021 with the ramp-up in consumer confidence. Furthermore, an incessant shift from traditional ICE vehicles to EV vehicles is likely to give an impetus to the demand for profile seals. Overall, the automotive profile seals market is likely to rebound at a promising CAGR of 4% in the long run to reach US$ 7.1 Billion in 2026.

    Market Segments' Analysis

    Based on the vehicle type, the automotive profile seals market is segmented as passenger car, light commercial vehicle (LCV), medium- & heavy-duty commercial vehicle (MHCV). With the lowest decline in the demand for profile seals by the pandemic, passenger car is expected to remain the largest and the fastest-growing vehicle type in the market during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for electric vehicles across regions coupled with an expected recovery in the production of ICE vehicles. In addition to that, increasing investments by the premium and luxury car manufacturers to manufacture new products with enhanced features, and growing demand for passenger cars in the developing economies is further expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. 

    Based on the material type, the market is segmented as elastomer seals and thermoplastic seals. Elastomer is expected to remain the dominant as well as the faster-growing material type in the market during the forecast period. Elastomer is not only the dominant material in profile seals but also in the overall automotive seals market. Elastomers are gaining traction in the automotive industry due to their unique elasticity and flexibility.

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market for automotive profile seals during the forecast period. This region has a presence of a large number of major OEMs, such as Toyota and Hyundai, which make the region a growth engine of the automotive industry. Most of the automotive profile seals suppliers have their presence in the region to address the emergent needs of OEMs and to be the partner for their fuel-efficient version of existing automotive programs.

    North America and Europe are also likely to create sizeable opportunities in the coming five years, driven by an expected rebound in vehicle production coupled with a paradigm shift from ICE to electric vehicles.
