The global mechanical seals market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 9% during the forecast period.

Vehicle downsizing and light weighing assemblies of seals is an emerging trend in the automotive sector that has helped in improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions. Lightweight assemblies are attained by replacing mechanical metal seals with high-strength plastics that can endure heat and high pressure in automotive components.

According to the report, many governments worldwide and international organizations such as the US EPA have set stringent regulations and standards for the mining, refining, oil and gas, power, and chemicals industries. The regulations control toxic emissions, maintain safety of operations, and prevent gas and fluid leakages through pipes, boilers, and other equipment. To meet the standards laid down, superior quality seals have to be manufactured that can prevent contamination of the product.

Further, the report states that leakage in mechanical seals is a serious concern as it causes operational failure.

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. The market research analysts also note that China will play an essential role in fueling the demand for mechanical seals as it has increased oil and gas production to fulfill its rising energy demand.
