European Automotive Bearing Seal Market size is projected to surpass USD 190 million By 2027, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research. Bearings are required for the smooth operation of moving parts in automobiles. They provide several advantages including improved vehicle performance, reduced friction, and heavy load bearings. In the automotive sector, bearing seals are used in engines, gearboxes, transmissions, wheels, steering, motors, and pumps. These variables will have a favorable impact on the industry growth.
The increased demand for lightweight and durable bearings in the automobile industry is encouraging major bearing manufacturers to shift their attention toward alternate raw materials. Vendors are also increasing their R&D expenditure to develop lightweight technology. Currently, auto component makers are manufacturing lightweight bearing seals to reduce vehicle weight without affecting its functionality.
The light commercial vehicles segment will showcase around 3.8% growth rate till 2027. The strong logistics sector in Europe along with driving sales of commercial vehicles is supporting bearing sales over the forecast timeframe. Furthermore, expansion plans of several LCV manufacturers, such as Volkswagen, Hyundai, and others, are supporting the regional market size.
In the European automotive bearing seal market, the water pump application segment will grow at 4.5% CAGR through 2027. For the circulation of cold water in a vehicle, water pump bearings are inserted into the pump. The product has double-row sealed bearings with a large space between the two rows of the bearing's rolling components. As seals are used in water pump bearings, they have a longer service life along with improved performance, strong heat, and water resistance abilities.

The oil seal segment accounted for 51% market share in 2020. Transmission, steering, and gear applications use oil seals. Oil seals, also known as dirt, fluid, or grease seals, are primarily used to keep oil or grease contained in a container. Oil seals prevent lubricants from escaping from the moving & stationary elements of a bearing. Another important purpose of the oil seal is to keep contaminants out of the car bearing.
The aftermarket segment will witness over 3.9% CAGR during the forecast period. Bearing seals are used to extend the life of the bearings while reducing friction. Customer-specific product customizations, such as design changes in bearing seals, are also offered by the aftermarket players.
