is a semi solid lubricant and it usually consists of a soap emulsified with water or some other vegetable oils and possesses high viscosity when compared with oils. Vacuum grease is also a lubricant with low volatility and mostly suitable for the low pressure environments. It is resistant to alcohols, esters, alkalis and water. As a sealant, it is used in joints in vacuum systems. It also helps to provide protection from corrosion and fusing.Vacuum grease market
has been developing widely across the globe when compared to the past decades. The vacuum grease market in the Asia-Pacific region is the fastest-growing market across the globe, and this trend is expected to continue in the near future as well. The U.S. is the biggest producer and consumer of vacuum grease in this region. It is also the biggest exporter of laboratory & industrial equipment in the world. It exports XX% of its products to the European markets. In Canada, the laboratory & industrial equipment market is led by the medical industry equipment. North America and Asia-Pacific are hence the biggest regional segments of this application.
The segmentation of vacuum grease market can be done based on the type of vacuum grease such as hydro carbon vacuum grease, flouro carbon vacuum grease, silicon based vacuum grease, cork vacuum grease, water soluble vacuum grease and also based on the vacuum content or concentration such as high, medium, low vacuum grease. The market has been analyzed also based on the type of application such as the aerospace and defense, automotive, food processing, sealing and lubrication industries and pharmaceuticals, cryogenic industries and also in some other small scale industries. The segmentation can be further done based on the end users who use this vacuum grease for the functioning of their products.
