High Pressure Seals Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017 - 2025
High pressure seals market have evolved rapidly over the course of ten-year period. Broadly, the strides have been stirred by the advent of better composite materials, substantial engineering advances, and changing requirements of end-use industries. Most prominently, new product development avenues have come from the growing use of high pressure seals market in a range of applications in the oil and gas industry. High pressure and high temperature seals have been increasingly used in demanding downhole applications as safety valves that need excellent rapid gas decompression (RGD) resistance. Over the years, oil and gas valves have been utilized in conditions that cause embrittlement, leading to unplanned maintenance intervals due to presence of aggressive environments in downhole oil environments. Some of the key applications of high pressure seals are in booster pumps, airless paint pumps, oil and gas valves, and water jet intensifiers.
Advent of novel composite materials have encouraged manufacturers try new products in high pressure seals market. Moreover, next generation products will see manufacturers utilizing precise-engineered alloys. Researchers in recent years have been successful in finding candidates for high pressure seals that can resist the harshest chemicals such as corrosive liquids and gases present in geothermal environments. Growing product developments in rotary shaft oil seal is making noticeable bearing on the market. Advancements in prototyping technologies have allowed manufacturers to work with new engineering materials, thereby bringing innovations in the high pressure seals market. The use of optimal hardware designs have further contributing to their demands.
High pressure seal is defined as a mechanical device, which is utilized to join high pressure systems in order to stop leakage and observe the pressure to ensure the safety and smooth flow. These seals are generally prepared of metals or industrial grade rubbers. The main application of these seals is to provide a mechanism to manage high pressures; however, they are sturdy and can be utilized at high as well as low temperatures.
Prominently, these seals are utilized in tube couplings, compressors, pressure valves, hydraulic pumps, helical shafts, machinery for paper, working rolls for cold and hot rolling mills, gearboxes, and marine shafts. They find a widespread application across the oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, pharmaceutical, mining, and the manufacturing industry. The oil and gas industry has emerged as the key consumer of high pressure seals across the world and is anticipated to continue like this over the next few years. These seals primarily serve this industry in downstream, midstream, and upstream segments.
The usage of high pressure seals has also increased significantly in the manufacturing industry amidst the rising complexity of products and the upsurge in safety concerns of consumers. The rise in the pharmaceutical and the manufacturing industries is likely to fuel the demand for high pressure seals in the years to come, reflecting greatly on the global market for high pressure seals.
High pressure seals are used across several industries such as oil and gas, mining, manufacturing, chemical and petrochemical, and pharmaceutical. High pressure seals are developed for long service life and to reduce the friction in extreme pressure applications that are carried out over a broad temperature range.
The high pressure seals market can be classified on the basis of material, end-use, and region. An analysis of the key market segments provides a know-how to market players to attain maximum profits. On the basis of material, the market can be segmented into metal, hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber, ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), thermoplastic polyurethane, fluoroelastomers, and others. Amongst these, EPDM is expected to display the fastest growth in the coming years. EPDM-based high pressure seals provide temperature flexibility, weather resistance, and good heat resistance. Increasing energy demand from the emerging economies of Asia Pacific will exhibit the demand for EPDM-based high pressures seals for power generation.
