    Impact of COVID-19 on Pipe Seals Market

    Covid-19 has impacted the market dynamics, competition, and global supply chain. The revenues have gone down in 2020 and may resume an uptrend gradually from 2021. Companies optimizing their operation and strategy will sustain and beat the competition.

    Note: The summary below might not have included insights on covid impact since we have large number of reports.

    Market Insights

    Pipe is one of the major applications of seals that represents consequential growth opportunities for the market participants in years to come in all four regions. The market for pipe seals is extrapolated to register an impressive growth rate in the coming five years to reach US$ 1,122.8 million in 2024. The key factors, giving an impetus to the demand for pipe seals, are the rising construction and pipe infrastructure expenditure and the growing pipe rehabilitation market. Growing concern towards reducing water wastage due to pipe leaks is another influencer that further substantiates the significance of seals in the pipe market.

    The panoramic view of the pipe seals market cannot be sketched precisely if there is no complete understanding of its regional outlook as regional dynamics with regard to seals applications, sealing materials, as well as market competition contrast enormously.  For instance, SPR seals are more common sealing material in the North American pipe seals market, whereas EPDM seals are more common in the Asian pipe seals market. Analogously, in terms of pipe, there is also a sheer dominance of PVC plastic pipes in North America, whereas HDPE or MDPE plastic pipes are more common in Europe. This becomes imperative for the market participants to have complete knowledge of the regional dynamics in order to formulate the growth strategies for different regions based on their products, market, and regional synergies.

    Pipe Seals Market Share by Product Type

    Stratview has firstly segmented the total pipe seals market based on the product type as gaskets, O-rings, and other seals. Gasket, the most common seals' type, is estimated to maintain its vanguard in the pipe seals market in years to come, propelled by its excellent performance, such as excellent prevention of leakage, excellent corrosion resistance, robustness, low cost, and its ability to withstand temperature and pressure. Another factor that supports the dominance of gaskets in the market is its capability to handle many fluids. O-rings are also likely to gain undeniable traction in the market in the coming five years.

    Pipe Seals Market Share by Type of Pipes                      

    Our analysis on another market segmentation, which is based on the pipe type, suggests that plastic pipe is forecasted to remain the largest consumer of seals among plastic pipes, concrete/clay pipes, and steel/ductile iron pipes in the coming five years. Furthermore, the growth in the demand for seals is likely to be the highest in the plastic pipes over the same period. Plastic pipes are predominantly used in all the major applications including wastewater and potable water.

    Pipe Seals Market Share by Material Type

    Analogously, the study’s outcomes on different seals material types advocate that EPDM is the most preferred sealing material for pipe applications among EPDM, SBR, and others, in years to come. The material type is extrapolated to gain further share by registering the highest growth rate in the foreseen future. The key whys and wherefores behind the mammoth dominance of EPDM in the market are its properties including good resistance to ozone, weather, sunlight, aging, water & steam, alkalis, acids and oxygenated solvents, and good flexibility at low temperature.

    Regional Insights

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is projected to maintain its supremacy in the market in the coming five years. The region is estimated to gain further share in the coming five years, largely driven by China and India. The economy of both countries is slightly in distress but is still anticipated to be the highest among the major economies and generate consequential opportunities for both local as well as global players in years to come. Increased investment in infrastructure coupled with a large population base is creating a greater demand for pipes and so are seals.

    North America and Europe are other two major markets and are estimated to grow at healthy rates in years to come. The USA is the growth engine of the North American market, whereas Germany, France, the UK, and Russia are the major markets for pipe seals in the European market. The level of consolidation differs from region to region, the Asia-Pacific’s market is extremely fragmented with the presence of many local players, serving their local markets, whereas the North American and European pipe seals markets are relatively consolidated with the presence of global players.


    Market Scope & Segmentation

    Pipe seals are the materials that help in sealing the pipe joints that will further avoid problems of leakages. These seals can be made of different materials such as rubber, metal, silicone, and others.

    Pipe seals are available in different types such as gaskets, o-rings, and many others for different purposes. They can be used in the sealing of different pipes types such as plastic pipes, concrete pipes, clay pipes, steel pipes, and ductile iron pipes that are mostly used in applications such as wastewater or potable water and also many others.
