    Market Highlights

    Seals play an important role in pressure retention, lubrication, and preventing essential substances from leaking into the environment. The selection of seals is dependent on several parameters such as temperature resistance, durability, strength, and kind of application, among others.  The use of appropriate seals will result in increased productivity and better machinery efficiency. Industries require machines that can work continuously for hours, which is why manufacturers use tough and highly efficient seals. Because of their numerous advantages over other materials, elastomers and thermoplastics are the major materials used by manufacturers.

    Rapid industrialization has ushered the huge need for industrial equipment, creating a high demand for industrial machinery seals. The COVID-19 pandemic frazzled the market for industrial machinery seals in 2020, causing major disruption and significant losses for the shareholders. The industrial machinery seals market recorded a massive decline of nearly 18% in 2020.

    The long-term interpretations still seem fruitful with large-scale usage of seals in various equipment, such as hydraulic cylinders, pumps, valves, and machines, among others. The healthy growth of the industrial equipment market is likely to boost the market for seals as well. The industrial machinery seals market is expected to grow at a modest CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period to reach a value of US$ 8.4 Billion in 2027.

    Market Segments' Analysis

    Based on the application type, the industrial machinery seals market is segmented as hydraulic cylinders, pumps, valves, machines, and others. Hydraulic cylinders are expected to remain the largest, whereas machines are expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period. The growth of the hydraulic cylinders segment is driven by their widespread usage in a range of applications, particularly automotive manufacturing, manufacturing machinery, and civil engineering, among others.

    Based on the product type, the market is segmented as O-rings, gaskets, energized seals, lip seals, and others. Energized seals are expected to remain the largest and fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period. Energized seals are used in extreme operating conditions where standard seals fail to perform; this is one of the key factors driving the segment’s dominance and increase in demand for energized seals in industrial machinery.

    Based on the material type, the market is segmented into elastomeric seals, thermoplastic seals, and metallic seals. Elastomeric seals are expected to remain the largest, whereas thermoplastic seals are expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period. Elastomeric seals and thermoplastic seals prevent and control liquid leakage. They do not melt due to their chemical composition and are preferred for their high efficiency. Because elastomeric seals have the ability to return to their original shape, they are expected to be the market's dominant segment in the coming years as well.

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest and fastest-growing region in the market for industrial machinery seals during the forecast period. The region's massive industrial production and dominant market for pumps, valves, and hydraulic cylinders are the key factors for Asia-Pacific's dominance. Furthermore, the shift of manufacturing hubs from Western countries to China and India is likely to boost the region's market even more.
