Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Gasket and seals are the materials used to prevent the passage of any foreign media through to and fro, the joined object while under compression. Gasket is a mechanical seal, which fills the space between two or more mating surfaces, in order to prevent leakage. Gaskets allow perfect mating surface wherein they can fill irregularities. Gasket and seals are widely used across all end-use industries. Depending upon the application, a different types of gasket and seals are used among various end-use industries. Spiral wound, jacketed, kammprofile, solid ring are among the key gasket types, while o-ring seal, body seals, mechanical seals, shaft seal, piston seal, etc. are the key seal types used in different applications.
The global Gasket and Seals Market was accounted for US$ 69,457.9 Mn in terms of value in 2019 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 5.4% for the period 2020-2027.
Market Dynamics- Drivers
Increasing need to enhance performance of engineering equipment is expected to drive growth of the global gasket and seals market during the forecast period
Leakage from various industrial equipment can result in significant loss of material and indirect loss, in terms of labor and material cost of repair, environmental losses, wasted energy, sales due to downtime, etc. Both direct and indirect loses can incur a negative impact on a company’s operation in terms of revenue generation as well as diminishing the brand image in case of industrial accidents and claims for personal injury. Thus, these factors are expected to drive growth of the global gasket and seals market during the forecast period.
Compliance with strict regulatory norms to minimize leakage and fugitive emissions is expected to propel the global gasket and seals market growth over the forecast period
There are various standards and regulations regarding reducing the environmental impact of leakage and fugitive emissions, have been in development from different government and environmental agencies. For instance, The EPA estimates that approximately 70.4 KT/year of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and 9.4 KT/year of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) are emitted from equipment leaks, which significantly contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone. Moreover, European Environmental Agency, Environmental Protection Agency, etc. are focused on the development of standards to control amount of the leaks. Thus, these factors are expected to propel the market growth in the near future.
Asia Pacific held dominant position in the global Gasket and Seals market in 2019, accounting for 47.1% share in terms of value, followed by Europe and North America respectively

Gasket and Seals Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic:
COVID-19 Pandemic have adversely affected the economies of various countries around the globe. According to the International Monetary fund Analysis, the global economy is expected to shrink down by 3% percent in the year 2020 compared to year 2019. These economic slowdown expected to affect various sectors such as Automotive. Gasket and Seals are majorly used in the Automotive Industry to prevent leakage and reduce vibrations.
Moreover, According to Coherent Market Insight Analysis, Asia Pacific region constitutes world’s 60% population and higher population demands higher mobility. According to same analysis, the Asia Pacific region have largest Automotive industry by revenue but due to COVID-19 pandemic countries such as China and India declared lockdown in some areas of country. Due to the lockdown many manufactures of gasket and seals had to shutdown their plants. Owing to mentioned reasons, COVID-19 is expected to restrain the growth of the market during the year 2020.
Market Dynamics- Restraints
- Challenges associated with manufacturing, design, and material construction are expected to hinder the global gasket and seals market during the forecast period
Improvisation of machine design due to increasing need for compact, efficient, and high-performance processes has resulted in requirement of highly customized gasket and seals. The alteration in shape, size, or design also requires the change in the material of construction used for manufacturing gasket and seals. Limited availability of installation, manufacturing, service, and safety data for newly developed gasket and seals further pose challenges during working with them. Thus, these factors are expected to restrain growth of the market.
- Issues regarding high-temperature sealing are expected to hinder the global gasket and seals market during the forecast period
Sealing at high temperatures and in challenging operating conditions has remained a major hampering factor. If standard materials such as expanded graphite are used in manufacturing of gasket and seals, such standard materials cannot perform reliably for an extended time period. Thus, these factors are expected to hinder the global gasket and seals market growth over the forecast period.
