Vacuum grease is a lubricant which has less volatility and is majorly used for several applications especially in low pressure environments. As lubricant, vacuum grease is also employed widely as a sealant for sealing various joints in vacuum systems. This is generally limited to soft vacuum lubricants since high temperatures or ultra high vacuums may pose problems with the outgassing grease. Grease is the most commonly used material with glass vacuum systems. All type of metal systems generally make use of knife edge seals in the soft metals. Vacuum grease is used to prevent corrosion in electronics manufacturing processes.
The growth of global vacuum grease market is majorly attributed to the rapid expansion and strengthening of laboratory equipment industry, especially in Europe and North America. Moreover, the growth in food processing industry particularly in India and China as well as rapid growth in commercial aerospace industry are some other factors anticipated to fuel the global vacuum grease market over the forecast period. The global vacuum grease market in Asia-Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing market across the globe. Europe accounted for the second largest share in the global vacuum grease market, in terms of volume, in 2014. The U.K. is a key growth propeller in the region and held maximum share in the European vacuum grease market. This growth is majorly attributed to the increasing demand of vacuum grease especially in the industrial equipment and laboratory industry. North America vacuum grease market is considered to be the third largest of all the other regions. The U.S. is expected to be the largest consumer and producer of vacuum grease across North America. U.S. is also the biggest exporter of industrial equipment and laboratory equipment in the world.
