Over the years, the capabilities of Indian industries have improved dramatically and paved the way for the induction of state-of-the-art technology in all industrial fields, viz oil & gas, refinery, power, petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical, fertiliser, pump & paper, shipping, aerospace, etc. This has created a huge demand for high-precision mechanical seals in India.  

Mechanical seals are designed to prevent the leakage of exotic and hazardous media into the environment. Stricter legislation made it mandatory for industrial plants to employ mechanical seals for all their rotary equipment, thus creating demand for sophisticated mechanical seals for rotary equipment.  

The mechanical seal market has been predominantly dominated by international players over the last five decades. The technology for mechanical seals employs high precision designing and production, which was not available in the pre-liberalization period. Way back in the early 1980s, the size of the mechanical seal market was merely Rs 15 crores and today the same has grown exponentially to Rs 1500 crores.   

The GDP of India is USD 3 trillion and is one of the strongest and biggest globally. The infrastructure and core industries are growing at a rapid pace and this will be the biggest driver for growth in the mechanical seal industry. Today, Business Touch Magazine brings to you a massive player in the mechanical seal market: Sealmatic.
