    “The global recreational boat engine seals market size was US$ 99.0 million in 2023 and is likely to grow at a healthy CAGR of 2.2% in the long run to reach US$ 114 million in 2030.”

    Market Dynamics

    Introduction

    Seals are used inboard or outboard engines. In outboard engines, several seals are used in the lower unit such as gearbox, driveshaft, and propeller to keep water out of the engine oil and to prevent oil from leaking into the water. They are typically made from durable, wear-resistant materials like EPDM, NBR, etc. With the changing dynamics, there has been a transition in the sealing solutions’ design, material, process, etc.

    Drivers

    The rising popularity of outdoor leisure activities, growing demand for seals for replacement, and the implementation of stringent government policies like emission control across different regions are compelling the market growth. Moreover, manufacturers, such as Mercury Marine and Yamaha, are integrating advanced fuel injection systems into their latest outboard motors, and along with innovations in materials science and engineering are driving the development of high-performance seals for recreational boat engines.
