Key Market Trends

Growing Demand for Electric Vehicles to Drive the Market

With the rising environmental and health concerns among both the governments and consumers, the demand for, and usage of, electric vehicles is gradually increasing, especially in countries, such as China, the United States, the United Kingdom, Nordic countries, and others.

    --  Increase in the production of electric vehicles is primarily driven by
        the initiatives taken by several governments toward zero-emission and
        eco-friendly vehicles, as well as growing consumer awareness.
    --  Governments play a vital role in the promotion of electric vehicles, by
        providing subsidies and formulating less stringent regulations for
        supporting the production of electric vehicles.

The world is quickly adopting to electric vehicles (EV) and in the next couple of decades, EVs are expected to be more mainstream than internal combustion vehicles. More automotive manufacturers are now devoting a major chunk of their investments toward the R&D of electric vehicles.

Countries, such as China and the United States, are continually taking steps in the form of rebates and tax incentives, for increasing the demand for, and adoption of, electric vehicles.

    --  For instance, the Government of China has been consistently trying to
        increase the sale of electric vehicles through incentives and mandates
        for automakers, developers of autonomous vehicle technologies, and
        ride-hailing service companies.
    --  The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in China has an
        agenda to ban all the internal combustion engines (ICEs) from the roads,
        owing to the growing pollution issue.
    --  The government has not announced a date for the final ban, but Xin
        Guobin, the Vice Minister for the Industry and Information Technology,
        proposed initial targets that vehicles with electric and hybrid engines,
        may account for 8% of new car sales in 2018, 12% in 2020, and 20% by

The demand for transmission, steering, and battery-based automotive seals, is catered by domestic companies operating in the country, such as Kunshan Sanwa, Guangzhou Leakless Automobile Parts Co. Ltd, etc.

Asia-Pacific and North America to Dominate the Market

Over the last decade, the Asia-Pacific automotive industry has undergone the most significant transformation in its history. The market is recording an increasing share of global vehicle sales. Another major factor driving the growth of the automotive gasket and seals market is increased production and sales of electric vehicles in the region. It is the only major market expected to see continued strong growth in, both, the medium and long-term.

North America and Europe are also expected to hold a significant share in the global automotive gasket and seal market. The automotive commercial vehicle demand is growing in the United States, in 2018, the demand for commercial vehicles in the country has increased by 8.08%, which is a key factor for propelling the demand of gaskets and seals market in the country.

    --  The United States is the second-largest market for electric vehicles in
        the world.
    --  The government plays an important role in developing and deploying
        electric vehicles in the country.
    --  Financial incentives, including tax credits and tax exemptions, are
        major tools for decreasing the upfront costs of EVs and encouraging the
        adoption of these vehicles.
    --  For instance, the US federal government has initiated a tax credit for
        plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) purchased after December 31, 2009. The
        tax credit ranges from USD 2,500 to USD 7,500 for each vehicle, based on
        its battery capacity and gross vehicle weight rating (a vehicle's
        maximum weight, including cargo and passengers).
