Elastic Gaskets Market By Material (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR), Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM), Neoprene, Silicone, Fluoroelastomers, Others), By Application (Automotive, Electronics) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

The global market for elastic gaskets  was valued at US$ 2,202.1 Mn in 2017 and expected to reach US$ 3,220.3 Mn by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period. Asia Pacific was the largest region for elastic gaskets in 2017 and expected to retain its position throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Further, the region is also expected to generate the fastest growth during the forecast period.

Gasket is a sealing material used between two surfaces to create a static seal that generally prevent leakage and loss of pressure at connection points under compression. Elastic gaskets are gaining more traction across the world owing to increasing demand from automotive industry. Automotive industry is switching to lightweight materials to achieve greater fuel economy, thereby propelling the demand for elastic gasket for high strength sealing of these lightweight materials. Silicone rubber is preferred material used for elastic gasket fabrication. Silicone rubber gaskets offer several advantages over other alternatives owing to its resistance to acids, bases, solvents, chemicals, oils, water, extreme temperatures, UV rays and ozone cracking which makes it an ideal material for several end-use industries.

Factors such as rising motor vehicle production coupled with increasing demand for elastic gaskets from electronic industry owing to superior mechanical, physiochemical as well as desirable electrical properties expected to bolster the market demand in coming years. Further, increasing need to improve performance/efficiency of engineering equipment, huge demand from automotive and electronics manufacturing, advantages of elastic gaskets over other non-metallic gaskets, and introduction of 3D printing technology to produce customized and low cost gaskets are some of the factors boosting the elastic gaskets market growth. However, presence of competitive alternatives such as rubber or plastic o-rings might hamper the elastic gaskets market growth during the forecast period.

"Silicone Material is Expected to Retain its Leading Position Throughout the Forecast Period"

Based on material, the elastic gaskets market is dominated by silicone and expected to retain market dominance throughout the forecast period as well. Silicones are a group of elastomeric materials made from silicone, oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon. Extreme temperature range and low temperature flexibility are characteristics of silicone compounds. Silicones possess excellent resistance to extreme temperatures -50°C to + 232°C. Furthermore, some special compounds resist even higher temperatures. As a group, silicones have poor tensile strength, tear resistance, and abrasion resistance. Silicone based gaskets has good elevated temperature resistance and moderate chemical and oxidation resistance. Silicone is resistant to hot air, ozone, UV radiation, engine and transmission oils, animal and vegetable fats and oils, and brake fluids.. However, silicone based gaskets are more expensive than acrylic and has reasonable adhesion. Silicone compounds are not recommended for dynamic O-ring sealing applications due to relatively low tear strength and high coefficient of friction. Silicone can be compounded to be electrically resistant, conductive, or flame retardant. Many silicone compounds have a higher than normal mold shrinkage. Therefore production molds for silicone products are often different than molds for nitrile.
