Gasket & Seal Manufacturing - Industry Market Research Report

Gasket & Seal Manufacturing

Operators in the gasket and seal manufacturing industry manufacture O-rings, oil and grease seals, metallic and non-metallic gaskets, mechanical face seals and molded seals for use in a wide variety of industries. Industry revenue has increased slightly over the five years to 2017 due to stable demand from the industry's main end markets, such as automotive, petrochemical and power-generation industries. An increase in use of additive manufacturing technologies in manufacturing industry products are expected to help operators mitigate uncertain purchase costs. This will also help in keeping profit margins stable for companies in the industry. As a result, IBISWorld forecasts industry revenue to grow at an annualized rate of 0.4% to $7.7 billion over the five years to 2022.

This industry primarily manufactures gaskets, packing and sealing devices of all materials, including molded, metallic and nonmetallic materials. Gaskets are mechanical components used to create seals at the point of connection between two pieces of equipment, while packing and seals are usually ring-shaped components that prohibit or limit the leakage of fluid from a device in a pneumatic or hydraulic system.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
