Pune, Feb. 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global mechanical seals market size is projected to reach USD 4.77 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period. Rising adoption of mechanical seals across the industrial spectrum will primarily drive the growth of this market in the given time period. The fundamental function of a mechanical seal is to seal or fill the gap between a stuffing box and a rotary shaft, thereby preventing any leakage of gases or liquids in rotating shaft systems. Mechanical sealing products offer a host of advantages. For example, these seals can handle any type of fluid including abrasive materials, acids, and salts and function smoothly even when the rotational shaft changes direction. Moreover, despite heavy utilization, these seals do not cause or accelerate shaft wear and tear and the materials themselves have a long shelf-life. Besides this, mechanical seals are preferred over packaging materials as they are ecologically more viable. As a result, their uptake in the food and beverages industry is steadily climbing and is fast becoming one of the top mechanical seals market trends.

Market Driver

Robust Industrial Development in Emerging Economies to Propel the Market

Emerging economies such as India and China are undergoing a period of intense economic development in the form of accelerated industrialization. Forecasts by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) reveal that India’s economy is set to grow at 5.8% in 2020 and at 6.1% in 2021. In case of China, the IMF statistics showed that the national economy rose by 6.2% in 2019. These numbers are indicative of the fact that manufacturing activities in both countries are flourishing, implying that the demand for industrial materials and equipment, such as mechanical seals, is set to rise in the coming years. Furthermore, progressive economic policies, programs, and schemes such as Make in India will encourage mechanical seals manufacturers to develop advanced solutions and fuel the market growth during the forecast period.

Regional Dynamics

Favorable Investment Climate to Prove Beneficial for the Market in Asia-Pacific

Among regions, Asia-Pacific is foreseen to dominate the mechanical seals market share in the forthcoming decade as the market size of the region in 2018 was at USD 1.13 billion. Formulation and implementation of investment-friendly policies in India, China, and Japan are expected to be the key growth drivers for the market here. Apart from this, expansion of industries such as marine, construction, and oil & gas will spike the demand for mechanical sealing solutions in the region during the forecast period.

In North America, market growth is mainly premised on the increasing number of infrastructure projects and promotion of R&D in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) field. Growing adoption of mechanical seals in aerospace and railways is expected to propel the market in Europe, while a well-established oil and gas industry in the Middle East will accelerate the global market revenue.
