About Automotive Seals and Gaskets

Automotive seals and gaskets assemblies check the passage of fluid between moving and stationary parts of the vehicle, respectively. Seals and gaskets serve multiple functions in a vehicle. They hold the necessary fluid, which may be liquid, gas, or vapor, in the working compartment, check the entry of dirt and other contaminations, and also prevent the release of hazardous gas emissions. Automotive gaskets are manufactured from a variety of materials such as fiberglass, rubber, silicone, gasket paper, and even felt. Automotive seals, on the other hand, are made of rubber or steel. Seals and gaskets are often used in a vehicle's chassis, engine, transmission, and wheel-ends.

The analysts forecast the Global Automotive Seals and Gaskets market will grow at a CAGR of 4.31 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “The upcoming trends in the automotive sector are downsizing and light weighing assemblies. Downsizing takes the efficiency of automotive engines to new levels. Along with downsizing, lightweight assemblies improve the fuel efficiency of the vehicle and lower gas emissions. Lightweight assemblies are achieved by replacing metal seals and gaskets with high-strength plastics, which can endure the heat and high pressure of the automotive components ”.

According to the report, an increase in the lifespan of automotive components and a decrease in maintenance costs are expected to drive the growth in this market. Seals and gaskets provide a stable environment for automotive components to operate, improving the vehicle's lifespan and reducing the expenses involved in maintenance.

Further, the report states that despite the presence of several growth drivers, the Global Automotive Seals and Gaskets market faces certain challenges. One of the key challenges is issues in the process of design, selection, and installation of seals and gaskets assemblies, which could result in expensive replacements.

The report also includes a discussion of the other vendors operating in this market. The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
