Automotive Seals Market: Research Highlights
Seals are used to serve a multitude of functions including connecting the joints, prevention of leakage, and exclusion of unnecessary particles. In the automotive industry, seals are used in many parts of a vehicle for filling the gap between two components to make sure that there is no leakage between them during the compression stage. Automotive seals come in different shapes and sizes, and are used in induction sealing, heating, stuffing, and adhesion of various parts in automobiles. The choice of materials to manufacture seals depends on the application and its requirements.
Seals are small but undoubtedly one of the major components, especially where there is a greater need for high-temperature resistance and excellent corrosion resistance. The selection of material is dependent on several parameters including temperature resistance, lightweight, durability, strength, etc. Thermoplastics are gaining traction in the market because of their enormous advantages over others.
The year 2018 and 2019 were challenging for the automotive industry stakeholders in the wake of the saturating demand in the developing economies. The pandemic further devastated the entire supply chain including the demand for automobiles. As a result of that, the automotive seals market recorded a massive decline of -17% in 2020, crushing the market to well below its 2015-market value. However, the long-term outlook still seems resilient with good growth opportunities across regions. Overall, the automotive seals market is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.2% over the next five years to reach US$ 18.6 billion in 2026.
Based on the vehicle type, passenger car is expected to remain the largest as well as the fastest-growing vehicle type in the market during the forecast period. Huge passenger car production coupled with the growing use of seals remain the key growth propellor of the market in the long run.
Based on the application type, the market is segmented as Engine System, Transmission System, Brake & Suspension System, Body Structure, and Others. Body structure is expected to remain the largest segment of the market in the coming five years, whereas transmission system is likely to be the fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period. These seals are used in a wide spectrum of engine applications and are designed to withstand high temperatures.
Based on the material type, elastomers are expected to remain the most dominant material type in the market during the forecast period. Elastomers are a desirable material for high-performance applications owing to their good strength, durability, and effectiveness. Owing to their massive array of advantages, elastomers are gaining traction in the automotive industry.
Based on the product type, the market is segmented as O-rings, Gaskets, Profile Seals, Lip Seals, and Others. The dominant product type in the automotive seals market is Profile Seals while the fastest growing is Lip Seals. Lip Seals have various advantages over their counterparts. Increasing awareness towards development of vehicles offering greater fuel efficiency is also imprinting the dynamics of the seals market. There has been a paradigm shift from traditional seals to lightweight seals.
In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market for automotive seals during the forecast period. Most of the seals suppliers have their presence in the region to address the emergent needs of OEMs and to be the partner for their upcoming automotive programs or upcoming fuel-efficient vehicles of the existing programs. Furthermore, huge production base of automobiles in China, Japan, India, Korea, and Thailand assures enormous demand for seals in the region.
The market for automotive seals is gradually consolidating as major companies are performing mergers & acquisitions to quickly gain the leading position and to tap growing opportunities in this briskly expanding market. Following are the key players in the automotive seals market.
