The global automotive gasket and seal market is foreseen to grow significantly due to the rising demand to obtain improved vehicle performance and fuel efficiency. Moreover, the vehicles industry could offer exceptional growth prospects with the trend of aggressive technological developments. The usage of gaskets and seals are proven to be crucial in the improvement of the lifespan of automotive components and the reduction of the maintenance expenses of vehicles. Stringent emission regulations rising in the automobile industry are forcing original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to focus on the obligatory inclusion of gaskets and seals. This could augur well for the growth of the market.

The world automotive gasket and seal market is envisaged to be segregated into metallic and non-metallic gaskets as per type of product. Amongst these products, metallic gasket could collect a lion’s share of 71.7% by the end of 2022. The metallic gasket market is anticipated to grow with a greater absolute revenue compared to the non-metallic market. Annually, metallic gasket could expand at a US$3.1 bn during the course of the forecast timeframe.
In respect of vehicle type, the world automotive gasket and seal market is prognosticated to see a segmentation into compact, mid-sized, premium, luxury, commercial, and heavy commercial vehicles.
