NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Market outlook of the global mechanical seals market
Mechanical seals are widely used in the oil and gas, chemical, water and wastewater, and power industries as they prevent leakage of industrial contaminants as well as corrosion and fatigue that can reduce the efficiency and cycle life of the equipment. They also play a crucial role in the production and transportation process in the oil and gas industry, making it a significant end-user of this market. The global mechanical seals market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 9% during the forecast period.
The discovery of shale gas production also plays a significant role in boosting the demand for mechanical seals, as it has triggered oil production and exploration activities, especially in the US. Similarly, even modern hydrocarbon processing plants require highly reliable seals to limit the leakage of fluids. Therefore, these developments will bode well for the market growth during the forecast period.
Segmentation of the mechanical seals market by end-user
Oil and gas
The oil and gas industry is the largest revenue generator of the mechanical seals market due to increase in production of shale gas in developed and developing countries and is expected to remain at the top till the end of the forecasted period. Factors such as new oil and gas exploration activities coupled with extensive investment in pipelines and refineries in the Americas, the Middle East, Africa, and the APAC region will further escalate the market growth.
Geographical segmentation of the mechanical seals market
Due to rise in urbanization and industrialization, the APAC region accounted for the highest share and will continue till the end of the forecasted period.
