The global gaskets and seals market size was estimated at USD 61.74 billion in 2022 and is expected to hit around USD 85 billion by 2030, growing with a registered CAGR of 4.08% during the forecast period 2023 to 2030. U.S. gaskets and seals market was valued at USD 8.6 billion in 2022.
Due to the lockdown during COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a negative impact on this market. As there were social distancing protocols and the production of the gaskets and seals had dropped down due to supply chain issues and a delay in raw materials. There was also a scarcity of the raw materials used in the manufacturing owing to a slow growth of this market. All of these factors have resulted in the reduction of the revenues damaged the industry's economy. The gasket is used in order to retain the seal, which connects two surfaces or two different components. It helps in providing a complete barrier for any kind of leakages. The materials used for manufacturing gaskets are temperature and pressure resistant. The main function of the gaskets and seals is to control pressure apart from preventing the entry of any contaminating particles from the environment. They ensure ultimate safety and performance due to involvement of fuel and gas which is under pressure, while the working of the machines.
The gasket and seals market growth depends on factors such as the adoption rate of electric vehicles in the nations or the increasing electric vehicle infrastructure in developed nations, changes in the raw material prices. Due to rapid technological advancements in the automobile sector and as there is a growing need to improve the fuel efficiency and the performance of the vehicle, this market is expected to grow during the forecast period and these also happens to be the factors for the growth of this market. The use of gaskets and seals has helped with lower vehicle maintenance cost and has also increased the lifespan of the cars or the components of the automobiles. There is a mandate on incorporation of gaskets and seals in vehicles due to stringent emission policies by various nations across the world.
The international oil and gas industry has a huge potential to create a great demand for the industrial equipment, which is projected to drive the market of gaskets and seals. Due to a major increase in the offshore exploration of oil and gas and the related production activities in Asia Pacific region and North American region, the international gaskets and seals market is expected to grow.

On the basis of the type of the product, the market is segmented into gaskets and seals market. The seals market segment is expected to dominate the market globally as they are cost saving component. The seals product segment accounted largest revenue share of 62% in 2021.
The gaskets are expected to witness a great demand. Due to a demand in heat exchanger systems and pipelines, which are backed by the increasing oil and gas exploration activities. In order to control the fugitive emissions from the industries and the stringent laws by various nations’ gaskets market is expected to grow during the forecast.
The market for gaskets and seals can be segmented into pressure vessels, manhole covers, heat exchangers, valve bonnets, pipe flanges. As the heat exchangers help to maintain the pressure of the engine this sub segment has a larger market share. The application in electronics is expected to have a faster growth during the forecast period as there is an increase in demand for the electronic items.
Distribution Channel Insights
The sub segments of the distribution channel are original equipment manufacturers or the aftermarket. The original equipment manufacturers sub segment is expected to dominate the market globally as they are engaged in bulk manufacturing of the seals as well as the gaskets. The OEM segment was accounted 61% revenue share of the overall revenue in 2022.
The automotive application segment accounted revenues share of around 34% in 2022. The automotive segment is expected to dominate the market globally out of all the other industries. As there are several types of fluids and lubricants that are used in the engine the seals and gaskets come into play and therefore the automotive sector is expected to have the largest share during the forecasted period. For superior performance in the subsea oil discoveries a robust growth in the seals market is expected.
Due to a growth in the manufacturing sector and the automobiles in Asia Pacific region and due to stringent government policies, it is expected to have a good demand for OEM in manufacturing industries. Gaskets and seals are important components of the maintenance and repair of the manufacturing machines, the gaskets and seals are replaced each time there is a change in the gases and fluids of the machines.
In the Asia Pacific region accounted revenue share of around 45% in 2022. As this region as is involved in the production of innumerable chemicals. Also, the consumption of the gaskets and seals is increasing in China as well as the other Asia Pacific regions, as the automotive sector in this area is growing. There is a high demand for gaskets and seals as china produce rubber seal products which have high quality raw materials used.
In North America, the gaskets and seals market is dominated by US due to the use of the products in the oil and gas and the automotive industry. Due to the presence of large number of small sized and medium companies that produce low volumes of gaskets and seals, the market in Asia Pacific is also expected to grow due to low manufacturing cost, high consumption volume of gaskets and seal and notable manufacturing base present in this region.
Key Market Players
