High pressure seals are leakage control equipment that is deployed on rotating equipment such as the mixer and pumps to limit the leakage of gases and liquid from escaping into the environment. High pressure seals are mostly made up of metal or alloys, Apart from these materials, other materials such as plastics, and elastomers are also used in manufacturing high pressure seals. High pressure seals are designed to provide long service life and low friction for extreme pressure applications over wide temperature ranges. These types of seals are commonly used in helical shafts in heavy industries, working rolls for hot and cold rolling mills, marine shafts, machinery for paper, pumps, and gearboxes.
The market growth of high pressure seals is attributed to the growing demand from the chemical & petrochemicals industry in the Asia-Pacific and the expansion of the power generation industry, especially in emerging economies. The major restraining factor in the high pressure seals market value is the shifting focus towards renewable or alternate energy. Power generation is the major end-use industry for high pressure seals and if the demand for alternative energy picks up, it will affect the demand for high pressure seals in the coming period. In addition, gland packing and sealless pumps can also hinder market growth. Further, the major opportunities lie in the establishment of nuclear power generation plants. International Atomic Energy Agency projected that nuclear electricity generation may grow from 15% to 45% by 2020 and 25% to 95% by 2030. However, the degrading quality of polymer and elastomeric seals coupled with lowering the operating pressure of pumps to reduce energy consumption can be a major challenge in high pressure seals market.
High Pressure Seals Market Segmentation
The global high pressure seals market segmentation is based on material, end-user industry, and geography.
High Pressure Seals Market By Material
In terms of materials, the hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HBR) segment has seen significant growth in the high pressure seals market in recent years. Hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR) is a type of synthetic rubber that offers excellent resistance to high pressures, temperatures, and chemicals. HNBR seals are used in various high-pressure applications, including oil and gas drilling, chemical processing, and hydraulic systems, among others. One of the key drivers of growth for the HNBR segment is the increasing demand for seals with high durability and resistance to extreme conditions. HNBR seals offer superior mechanical properties, such as high tensile strength, excellent resistance to abrasion, and low compression set, making them suitable for use in high-pressure and high-temperature environments. In addition, the increasing use of HNBR seals in the automotive industry is expected to contribute to the growth of the HNBR segment.
High Pressure Seals Market By End-User Industry
According to the high pressure seals market forecast, the power generation segment is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years. The power generation segment includes a wide range of power sources such as thermal, hydro, nuclear, and renewable energy, among others. High pressure seals are used in various power generation equipment, such as steam turbines, gas turbines, compressors, and pumps, among others. One of the key drivers of growth for high pressure seals in the power generation segment is the increasing demand for power generation, driven by the growing global population and industrialization. The need for reliable and efficient power generation equipment is critical, and high pressure seals play a vital role in ensuring their safe and efficient operation. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, is expected to drive the demand for high pressure seals in the power generation segment.
