Encapsulated O Rings Market Report
Encapsulated O-rings Market Size, Share, Trend, Forecast, & Industry Analysis: 2020-2025
Encapsulated O-rings have a wide range of applications in various end-use industries, including chemicals, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, semiconductor, automotive, aerospace, and oil & gas industry. Despite being a small component of these end-use industries, encapsulated O-rings play an essential role in the smooth functioning of various equipment or devices, such as pumps, valves, cartridge filters, heat exchangers, pipelines, gas compressors, chemical reactor vessels, and pressure vessels. Compared with the other O-rings, encapsulated O-rings offer several advantages, such as high resistance to numerous chemicals except for alkali metals and some fluorine compounds, FDA-compliant, suitability in a broad range of temperatures, low coefficient of friction, low permeation, non-contaminating, and exclusively suitable where hygiene is of paramount importance.
The rapid spread of the pandemic severely affected various end-use industries where encapsulated O-rings are preferred including the halt of production facilities, shortage of labor, and disruption of the supply chain across the globe. Chemical, petrochemical, oil & gas, semiconductor, and automotive, are among the worst-hit industries due to the pandemic. On the other side, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical are the industries that are registering the least impact of the pandemic. The severe impact of the pandemic on chemical, petrochemical, semiconductor, oil & gas, and automotive industries will be partially offset by the modest growth in the food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and medical industries.
Most of the end-use industries hit with the pandemic are anticipated to mark a gradual recovery from 2021 onwards and maintain its growth momentum till 2025, which will create favorable market conditions for encapsulated O-rings manufacturers in the long term. Also, the stringent regulations, such as FDA, EC 2023/2006, EU Reg. 1935/2004, and USP Class-VI; and failure of solid PTFE O-rings in harsh chemical and high-temperature environment provide good growth opportunity to encapsulated O-ring manufacturers. In the long run, the market for encapsulated O-rings is likely to mark a healthy 5.0% CAGR over the next five years to reach US$ 144.6 million in 2025.
Stratview has firstly segmented the encapsulated O-rings market based on the jacket material type as FEP and PFA. FEP is expected to remain the most preferred jacket material type in the market in years to come. Lower cost along with several other advantages including high resistance to corrosion and chemicals, low compression set, and low coefficient of friction, making FEP the preferred choice for all standard applications up to 205°C. PFA encapsulated O-rings are used for higher temperature range. They have higher mechanical strength, improved crack resistance; hence, longer service life than FEP encapsulated O-rings.
Based on the core material type, the encapsulated O-rings market is segmented into FKM, silicone, and others (include EPDM, stainless-steel spring, etc.). Due to the excellent elasticity, good chemical resistance, and outstanding compression, FKM core material dominated the market in 2019 and is likely to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. The silicone core material is preferred in low-temperature applications as it remains flexible at a lower temperature because of its greater softness than FKM and has a higher standard of heat resistance.
Based on the core structure type, the encapsulated O-rings market is segmented into solid core and hollow core structure. Solid core is likely to remain the leading segment of the market in the coming years as well, driven by its excellent resistance to compression set and good recovery characteristics. FKM and silicone are dominantly used core materials for solid core encapsulated O-rings. FKM solid core provides excellent elasticity and high-level compression, whereas silicone solid core performs excellent for a wider range of temperatures.
Based on the end-use industry type, the encapsulated O-rings market is classified into chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, and others (oil & gas, semiconductor, aerospace & defense, and automotive industry). The chemical industry is the biggest user of encapsulated O-rings, driven by the extensive use of aggressive chemicals, making encapsulated O-rings a preferred choice. These O-rings are also widely used in the food & beverages and pharmaceutical industries as they are compliant with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), EC1935/2004 and EC2023/2006, USP Class VI, and 3A 18-03 Sanitary Standards.
In terms of regions, all regions are expected to mark a huge decline in 2020 in the wake of the rapid spread of the pandemic across regions. Despite the worst hit by COVID-19, Europe will maintain its lead in the years to come with the presence of leading encapsulated O-ring manufacturers, such as Vulcan Engineering Limited and Northern Engineering (Sheffield) Ltd. Asia-Pacific is expected to heal up with the fastest pace post-pandemic with China and India being the growth engines.
