Global Automotive Seals Market 2015-2019

About automotive seals

Automotive seals are used to fill in the gap between rotating components in engine, camshaft, gearbox, and wheel-hub in a vehicle to stop the leakage of oil or lubricants and to prevent the entry of dirt, water, and other contaminants to these components. These seals are of different shapes and sizes, designed as per the component geometry. Automotive seals are made of rubber or steel.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global automotive seals market to grow at a CAGR of 3.79% over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Seals Market 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Automotive Seals Market: Dana Holding, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies, SKF and Trelleborg
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Dichtungstechnik, Federal-Mogul, Henniges Automotive and KACO
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Previously, automotive seals were simple in design and were made using conventional processes such as compression molding. With the increasing complexities in the design of engine systems, the design and manufacturing of seals have also become complicated. There has been a shift in the manufacturing process of seals from compression molding to injection molding. Injection molding has become the preferred option for manufacturing seals with complex designs. The technique reduces wastage and provides greater flexibility for designers.”
According to the report, seals are used in vehicles’ engines, camshafts, wheel hubs, gearboxes, and air conductor clutches, primarily for the retention and prevention of leakage. Seals also ensure the smooth running of the engine systems by stopping the entry of foreign materials like dirt, water, and contaminants into the bearing assembly.
Further, the report states that automotive powertrain seals have very limited application in an electric vehicle (EV). With the ever-increasing sales of EVs across the world, the automotive seals market is expected to have a negative impact.
