About mechanical seals
Mechanical seals converge/connect parts of systems or mechanisms to prevent the leakage of fluids. The plumbing systems in the oil and gas, power, water and waste water, manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, electrical and electronics, and petrochemical industries use these seals to prevent fluid leakage by maintaining the pressure flow. The plumbing mechanism that the industry employs determines the type of seals that are required for joining the parts.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the mechanical seals market in the Middle East to grow at a CAGR of 5.32% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Mechanical Seals Market in the Middle East 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the mechanical seals market in the Middle East: AESSEAL, Chesterton, EagleBurgmann, Flowserve, and John Crane.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Arabian Seals, James Walker, KSB, MEOS, Garlock (part of EnPro Industries), and TREM.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is use of superior quality raw materials. Modern mechanical seals are designed to be used in harsh environmental conditions and temperatures ranging from -32F to 1,832F. Such applications require the use of superior quality raw materials such as high-grade steel alloys, which can withstand such high temperatures. Aluminum, monel, and copper are also used as metal covers, while expanded graphite is used as a filler material.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rising demand from oil and gas industry. Mechanical seals protect from external contamination, and thereby prevent the emission from the equipment. The majority of the infrastructure in this industry has become old and needs renovation for efficient operations to continue. This need for the renovation of infrastructure is mostly visible in the Middle East, which currently dominates the oil and gas reserves. Existing refineries not only need renovation but are also undergoing expansion and development with the growing demand for crude oil.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is leaks leading to shut down. Leakages in mechanical seals are a serious concern for the market as they cause operational failure. Periodical repair of the seals to prevent failure interrupts the smooth functioning of processes. For instance, leakage in pumps requires the isolation of the system and the removal of pumped fluids, thus affecting the production and performance of the system.
