Global High Pressure Valve Stem Seals Market 2017-2021
About High Pressure Valve Stem Seals
The high pressure valve stem seals are devices that are used for lubricating high pressure valves. The amount of oil that is passed on to high pressure valves through the stem seals should be in appropriate proportion to ensure efficient performance of valves. If the quantity of oil flow is more than required, the amount of emissions through high pressure valves increases and coke builds up on the surface of valves, which increases the chances of failure or fault in valves. If the quantity of oil flow is less than required, the high pressure valves may get seized. Therefore, the ideal flow of oil is required by the stem seals for the optimal working of high pressure valves.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global high pressure valve stem seals market to grow at a CAGR of 3.91% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global High Pressure Valve Stem Seals Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global high pressure valve stem seals market: DuPont, Flexitallic, Garlock, SKF, and Velan.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: James Walker, Fel-Pro, Dana, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, Kastas, MFC Sealing Technology, GFD, Chesterton, GROUPE LATTY, and Freudenberg Sealing Technologies.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increase in R&D for manufacturing advanced stem seals. Stem seals are a very small portion of high pressure valves but are very essential for enabling the valves to withstand extreme conditions of high pressure and elevated temperature within industries. In the earlier days, the end-users used to choose umbrella seals for providing better functioning to the stems of high pressure valves.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is provide exact metering rate to high pressure valve stems. Seals are known for lubricating the stems of high pressure valves in order to enable an excellent flow of operations through the deployment of high pressure valves. These seals help in allowing an exact amount of oil to pass through them to lubricate the high pressure valve stems. The seals provide an ideal metering rate to the stems, which also helps in ensuring low emission rate in the industries. When oil metering rates remain equal throughout, the stems function well by opening and closing at the required time, allowing an exact amount of fluid or gas to pass through them for distinct processes.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is hardening of stem seals. Over a period, stem seals begin to harden due to excessive exposure to high pressure processes in several industries. Constant heat, high temperature, high pressure, and, especially, air exposure cause the surface of seals to become hard. Owing to this the seals do not fit the high pressure valve stems properly. Consequently, a leakage is caused due to the improper fitment of seals, which interrupts the overall processes in the industry. These seals easily get exposed to mechanical wear, and cracks form on the surface of the seals, making them incapable of performing effectively.
