Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Automotive Seals Market 2015-2019” report to their offering.

The global automotive seals market to grow at a CAGR of 3.79% over the period 2014-2019.

Global Automotive Seals Market 2015-2019, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, APAC, and Europe. It also covers the landscape of the global automotive seals market and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

Previously, automotive seals were simple in design and were made using conventional processes such as compression molding. With the increasing complexities in the design of engine systems, the design and manufacturing of seals have also become complicated. There has been a shift in the manufacturing process of seals from compression molding to injection molding. Injection molding has become the preferred option for manufacturing seals with complex designs. The technique reduces wastage and provides greater flexibility for designers.

According to the report, seals are used in vehicles’ engines, camshafts, wheel hubs, gearboxes, and air conductor clutches, primarily for the retention and prevention of leakage. Seals also ensure the smooth running of the engine systems by stopping the entry of foreign materials like dirt, water, and contaminants into the bearing assembly.

Further, the report states that automotive powertrain seals have very limited application in an electric vehicle (EV). With the ever-increasing sales of EVs across the world, the automotive seals market is expected to have a negative impact.
