According to the latest market research report by Technavio, the global gasket and seals marketis expected to reach close to USD 29 billion in revenue by 2020.

In this report, Technavio covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global gasket and seals market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the demand for seals and gaskets from end-users such as automotive, industrial machinery, electrical and electronics, and others.

“In electric vehicles, gaskets and seals are used in battery systems. Battery packs in vehicles are placed inside panels that comprise upper and lower housing. Gaskets or seals are used to separate these sections, and prevent ingress of particles and liquids into these housing sections. They have similar application in hybrid vehicle battery systems, which is extremely sensitive to temperature changes,” said Soumya Mutsuddi, one of Technavio’s lead industry analysts for tools and components research.

“The global HEV market saw sales rise from 1.1 million units in 2010 to 1.36 million units in 2014, with Japan accounting for 47.37% of the total sales. The US accounted for a share of 33.32%. Such trends mean that the demand for gaskets and seals designed for use in EVs and HEVs will rise and contribute to the growth of the market,” added Soumya.
