Grease 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 most 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 size has been developing widely across the globe when compared to the past decades. The vacuum grease market in the Asia-Pacific region is experiencing the fastest growth across the globe, and trends like these are forecasted via acute analysis and overview 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 which adds to the market demand of vacuum grease. North America and Asia-Pacific are hence the biggest regional segments of this application with great scope towards the enlargement of total market share.
The segmentation of vacuum grease market can be done based on the type of vacuum grease such as hydrocarbon vacuum grease, fluorocarbon vacuum grease, silicone-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 in this report also based on the outlook 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. Aerospace sector mostly uses fluorocarbon based products because of its unaffected lubricity and viscosity and hydrocarbon-based grease is a convenient choice for automotive sector to be used in O-rings, valves, bearings, suction cups, conveyors and etc as lubricants. The segmentation can be further done based on the end users who use this vacuum grease for the functioning of their products.
