The metallic stearates market size is estimated to be USD 3.7 billion in 2023, and it is projected to reach USD 4.9 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 5.4%. Metallic stearates are metal salts of stearic acid that are commonly used as release agents, lubricants, stabilizers, and water repellents in various industries such as plastics, rubber, coatings, and construction. The global metallic stearates market has been growing steadily in recent years and is expected to continue to grow in the coming years. The market is segmented on the basis of several types of metallic stearates such as zinc stearates, calcium stearates, magnesium stearates, aluminum stearates, and others. Metallic stearates is used in several end-use industries such as polymer & rubber, pharmaceuticals & cosmetics, building & construction, paints & coatings, and others. Moreover, the raw materials used in manufacturing metallic stearates are primarily stearic acid and metal compounds such as oxides, hydroxides, or carbonates. Stearic acid is a saturated fatty acid that is derived from animal or vegetable sources such as tallow, palm oil, or coconut oil. The metal compounds used in metallic stearates can vary depending on the specific application, but commonly used metals include zinc, calcium, magnesium, aluminum, and sodium. The manufacturing process typically involves reacting the stearic acid with the metal compound under controlled conditions of temperature, pressure, and pH. This results in the formation of a metal stearate salt, which is then separated from any unreacted materials or byproducts. The resulting metal stearate can be further processed or used as is for various industrial applications. Some of the leading companies involved in the manufacturing of metallic stearates are Baerlocher GmbH (Germany), Norac Additives (Norway), Faci Asia Pacific (Malaysia), Peter Greven GmbH & Co. KG (Germany), Valtris Specialty Chemicals (US), Sun Ace Kakoh (Japan), Dover Chemical Corporation (US), IRRH Specialty Chemicals (US), and others are covered in the specialty metallic stearates market. These players have adopted various growth strategies to strengthen their position in the market. These include product launches, contracts, partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, and new product development activities further to expand their presence in the metallic stearates market.
