The demand for gaskets and seals in US and Europe slowed down in 2009 due to the impact of global economic recession on the regions. Market growth in these regions has been moderate over the recent years owing to market maturity. Growth in the global gaskets and seals market is expected to be fuelled by strong demand from emerging regions. Manufacturers of gaskets and seals continue to increase the use of high-quality raw materials for delivering products with superior functionality and longer life. Some of the materials that are fast gaining acceptance include urethane, TFM polytetrafluoroethylene, microcellular foams, and expandable graphite.
