The metallic stearates market is projected to grow from an estimated USD 2.97 billion in 2016 to USD 3.85 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2016 to 2021. The rising demand from the pharmaceuticals & cosmetics industry is expected to drive the metallic stearates market. Growing demand from the Asia-Pacific region from end-use industries such as polymer & rubber is also expected to fuel the demand for metallic stearates.

The metallic stearates market has been segmented on the basis of type, end-use industry, and region. Based on type, the zinc stearates segment led the metallic stearates market in 2015, owing to its wide-ranging applications across various end-use industries. Based on end-use industry, the polymer & rubber segment led the metallic stearates market in 2015, due to the rise in demand for PVC and other polymers. Demand for customized grades from end-use industries with their variable valencies is driving the demand for metallic stearates.

The Asia-Pacific region led the metallic stearates market in 2015, and is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period, owing to the increasing demand for metallic stearates from countries such as Japan, China, India, and South Korea, among others. Improving economies of scale, and increasing polymer & rubber processing activities in the region are expected to drive the Asia-Pacific metallic stearates market.

Metallic Stearates Market

Application in the polymer & rubber industry, pharmaceuticals & cosmetics, building & construction, paints & coatings drive the growth of metallic stearates market

Polymer & Rubber Industry<

The polymer & rubber industry is a major market for metallic stearates wherein they are used for thermoplastics and processing unvulcanized rubber. Most of the metallic stearates are used as lubricants in polymer processing, and are good water repelling agents as well as releasing and gelling agents. Metallic stearates are largely used in powdered form on unvulcanised rubber to prevent decomposition. The major types of metallic stearates that are used in this industry include zinc stearates, calcium stearates, magnesium stearates, and others. Zinc and calcium stearates.

Pharmaceuticals & Cosmetics

Metallic stearates find a large number of applications in the pharmaceuticals & cosmetics industry. The market is one of the fastest growing for metallic stearates and is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Among all types of metallic stearates used, calcium and magnesium stearates have an increasing number of applications in this industry. Major manufacturers focus on specialized grades of these materials that are suitable to meet the requirements of this industry. Increasing concerns on the use of zinc stearates have affected their growth to a large extent, and these are expected to lose their market share to calcium and magnesium stearates during the forecast period.

Building & Construction

Metallic stearates are used as additives in the building & construction industry, and are used as lubricants, flatting agents, hydrophobic, and thickening agents. With high infrastructure growth in the emerging regions, the metallic stearates market in regions such as the Asia-Pacific is expected to witness high growth during the forecast period. Major grades among these types include zinc, calcium, and magnesium stearates.

Paints & Coatings

Metallic stearates are used in the paints & coatings industry largely as preservation additives and enhancers. Metallic stearates along with other additives are added to control the viscosity and surface properties of paints. Major types include zinc stearates, calcium, magnesium, and aluminum stearates. Zinc stearates are used for flatting and lubrication for sanding sealers. Calcium stearates are used as waterproofing and flatting agents in lacquers, and aluminum stearates are used as flatting agents, thickening, pigment suspension, anti-foaming agents.

Critical questions the report answers:

  • Where will all the major developments take the industry in the mid to long term?
  • What are the upcoming industry applications for metallic stearates?

Impurities in the form of traces of other fatty acids along with stearic acids are not acceptable in critical applications. Therefore, metallic stearates market growth is restrained due to the absence of structured markets in case of bulk grades wherein there is a presence of a large number of manufacturers providing generic grades that are used as bulk materials. In addition, market penetration is easy in case of general grades, thus leading to increasing numbers of new suppliers.
