Anaerobic adhesives are defined as compounds that cure andharden when isolated from air between two metal or non-metal parts. Theseadhesives possess peculiar characteristics; they remain in liquid state in thepresence of oxygen, and when isolated from oxygen, they harden to form a toughcured polymer that bonds between two adjacent faces of a metal. Polymerizationof anaerobic adhesives requires three conditions: isolation from air, i.e.,oxygen, contact with metal, and appropriate temperature. Anaerobic adhesivesare sold as one-part liquid or paste. They have excellent wetting ability andhigh temperature range. Anaerobic adhesives can withstand rapid thermalcycling, and are shelf-stable and fast curing.
The global anaerobic adhesives market can be segmented based on substrate, application, end-user industry,and region. In terms of substrate, the anaerobic adhesives market can beclassified into metals and plastics. Anaerobic adhesives can be used onplastics if the latter has higher density. When applied on small densityplastics, these adhesives cause cracking. In general, anaerobic adhesives areprimarily employed on metals. Thus, the metals segment holds the major share ofthe anaerobic adhesives market.

In terms of application, the anaerobic adhesives market can bedivided into thread sealants, thread lockers, retaining materials, flangesealants, and others. In threaded applications, anaerobic adhesivesprevent loosening and corrosion of the fastener, maintain clamp force, andoffer controlled torque during the removal of the assembly. Anaerobic adhesiveshelp bond assembly parts permanently using press or shrink fit when used inretaining applications. In sealant applications, they are used asformed-in-place (FIP) gaskets and prevent leaking of gases, fluids, or anycontaminants. Anaerobic adhesives provide a leak proof seal. The thread lockerssegment accounts for significant share of the market. This trend is likely tocontinue throughout the forecast period.
In terms of end-user industry, the anaerobic adhesives marketcan be segregated into automotive, appliance, electrical & electronics,health care, and others. Rise in demand for anaerobic adhesives in theautomotive industry is boosting the anaerobic adhesives market. Theseadhesives are primarily applied for assembling of engines, braking systems, andother body parts. Anaerobic adhesives are used for permanent sealing of theinternal and external structures in consumer appliances such as washingmachines, cloth driers, and dish washers. Expansion in health care andelectrical & electronics industries is fueling the anaerobic adhesivesmarket. The automotive segment constitutes prominent share of the market. Thesegment is expected to expand at a fast-paced CAGR during the forecast period.
