Gaskets & Seals

Gaskets & Seals

Demand for gaskets and seals in the US is forecast to increase 3.3% per year through 2023 to $10.3 billion, with sales boosted by ongoing manufacturing gains in a number of durable goods industries.
However, continued improvements in gasket and seal design will limit long term sales potential as the better performance and longer lifespan of sealing products installed in original equipment restricts aftermarket opportunities.

Gasket & Seal products covered include:
Metallic gaskets
Elastomeric gaskets
Advanced fiber gaskets
Plastic-based gaskets
Expanded graphite gaskets
Conventional fiber gaskets
Molded seals and packings
Body seals
Shaft seals
Compression packings

Markets for gaskets and seals include:
Motor vehicles
Construction & related machinery
General purpose machinery
Engine, turbine, and power transmission equipment
HVAC, refrigeration, and service equipment
Measuring and control instruments
Electrical equipment
Computers and electronic equipment
Appliances
Aerospace equipment
Marine & rail equipment

Scope of the Report
This Freedonia industry study analyzes the $8.8 billion US gasket and seal industry. It presents historical demand data (2008, 2013, and 2018) and forecasts (2023) by product (conventional metallic gaskets, machined metallic seals, elastomeric gaskets, advanced fiber gaskets, plastic-based gaskets, expanded graphite gaskets, conventional fiber gaskets, molded seals and packings, body seals, shaft seals, and compression packings) and market (motor vehicles; construction and related machinery; general purpose machinery; engine, turbine, and power transmission equipment; HVAC, refrigeration, and service equipment; measuring and control instruments; electrical equipment; computers and electronics; appliances; aerospace equipment; marine and rail equipment). The study also evaluates company market share and analyses industry competitors including Dana, EnPro Industries, Federal Mogul, Freudenberg, Henniges Automotive, John Crane, Parker Hannifin, and SKF.
