Players must seek partnerships and IIOT-enabled solutions to drive new growth opportunities, finds Frost & Sullivan’s Industrial and Process Control Team

London – 23 February, 2017 – High demand for energy across the globe, adoption of new technology, and the development of innovative products and applications are igniting growth, driving change and improving operational efficiencies in the global mechanical seals market. Mechanical seal manufacturers must expand channel and partnership initiatives and collaborate with electronic vendors and software companies for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-enabled solutions. Plus seek to leverage acquisitions to drive product-line expansion, smart connected assets, and customer bases in a consolidated, price-sensitive, fragmented ecosystem.

“Manufacturers that offer a comprehensive package constituting mechanical seals, aftermarket support, and diagnostic capabilities are at a competitive advantage. Mid-tier manufacturers must focus on research and development and innovation to gain a competitive advantage,” states Frost & Sullivan Industrial Automation & Process Control Programme Manager Ashwin Annareddy.

  • Rising concerns about safety and emission control for safeguarding the environment are expected to increase the demand for dry gas seals in compressors, mainly in the oil and gas industry. Manufacturers in developing economies are expected to offer seals with high reliability, safety features, and robust aftermarket support.
  • The top four mechanical seal manufacturers contributed 74.6 percent of the total market revenue.
  • The demand for dry gas seals is expected to rise during the forecast period, considering an increasing focus on reliability, and reduced operating and maintenance costs and emissions.

“In a concentrated, price-sensitive and highly fragmented market, distributors play a significant role in aiding higher market penetration for mechanical seals,” notes Annareddy. “Innovative, long-standing companies such as John CraneEagle BurgmannFlowserve Corp and Aesseal Plc, differentiate their offerings through the use of technology, performance and after-market support.”
