UK gasket manufacturer, among those who have suffered, due to findings in a recent business report.

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Gaskets and Seals – Global Strategic Business Report” report to their offering.

A part of the fluid containment and control products industry, gasket and seals are omnipresent in the field of mechanical engineering. They prevent leakages of liquids or gases into sensitive inner working machine components. As vital machine components, they play critical role in influencing machine function and durability of machine installation. Increasing demand from key end-use industries of automotive, process, refinery, pulp & paper, marine and rail, aerospace, among others, represents a major growth driver for the gaskets and seals market.

Stringent product usage specifications that these industries have to adhere to, strong government safety regulations mandating safety of personnel and workplace where a range of physical assets are used, increasing focus on maximization of efficiency and tight quality control requirements that govern industries are also primary factors influencing demand for gaskets and seals.
