Further, the demand for drones and electronic appliances is surging in several APAC countries, which is increasing the demand for seals.
The demand for gaskets is expected to increase at a steady pace majorly in APAC, North America, and European countries, wherein the investment in aerospace industries and manufacturing sectors is growing. Moreover, the increasing demand and export volumes of automotive parts in several key regions in Latin America, North America, and Europe is a major driving factor for the market. Further, with an increase in investments in defense equipment and aircraft, the demand for customized gaskets is growing at a rapid pace across the globe.
INSIGHTS BY APPLICATION
The steady growth in industrialization and growing investments in capital intensive markets across the world are expected to act as a major driver for the growth in machinery and other related supplies, including gaskets and seals, across the world. The automotive industry is one of the key end-user industries where the role of gaskets and seals is crucial in terms of efficiency and durability of the engine. Although the sale volume of the global automotive industry witnessed a major decline in 2019, the growth in production and demand for aftermarket spares remained a major driver for the gaskets and seals market. Manufacturers in the APAC market are increasing the production volume of molded seals that are highly preferred in wired and wireless electronic appliances and cordless equipment.
The aerospace sector is one of the key industries for precision gaskets and seals. The growing number of civil and commercial aviation players and growth in spending for space research programs are the major factors that propel the demand for gaskets and seals across the world. In addition, the increasing popularity of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or drones in several end-use industries across the world is expected to act as a prominent driver for gaskets and seals during the forecast period.
INSIGHTS BY END-USER
The demand for gaskets and seals is high from original equipment manufacturers (OEM). However, the requirement for gaskets and seals from the aftermarket sector is also growing at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period. The demand from OEMs is steady than the aftermarket segment. However, on account of the COVID-19 outbreak, the demand from OEM has been affected impacted in several application categories, especially the aerospace and automotive industry, during Q1 and Q2 of 2020. Post-sales services and replacement of parts and spares are one of the major drivers that are significantly increasing the market value of several industries such as automotive, aerospace, industrial machinery marine, and rail manufacturing. Although the after-market had remained a major revenue generator, the outbreak of coronavirus has significantly declined the operations and impacted the supply chain of gaskets and seals.
INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY
The APAC gaskets and seals market is expected to observe an incremental growth of close to USD 10 billion by 2025. The abundance of raw material resources and the proliferation of technology are key driving factors that propel the market in the region. China has remained as one of the major countries in the market due to the robust production quantity of steel and other polymer resins. China is a major manufacturing hub for end-user markets such as electronics, automotive, aerospace, and industrial machinery. Several key automakers are increasing their focus on electric vehicles. The increasing sophistication in automotive technology and the introduction of innovative designs and materials have driven several key manufacturers to increase their efficiency. Moreover, automotive sales in the APAC region in 2020 and 2021 are expected to witness volatility. This is due to the adverse effect of the COVID-19 outbreak that has significantly affected manufacturing operations and slumped the sales volume in the global automotive industry.
INSIGHTS BY VENDORS
The global gaskets and seals market is highly fragmented due to the presence of a large number of vendors across regions. Vendors in the market are adopting several strategies to tackle the intense competition. Mergers and acquisitions are taking place at frequent intervals to gain scale opportunities. In addition, several companies are focused on launching innovative products to strengthen their market position that significantly induces the competition in the market.
