The Global Metallic Stearates Market Size is expected to reach USD 5.9 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.


Compounds known as metallic stearates are made up of long-chain fatty acids and metals, with stearic acid and other metal salts making up the majority of the composition. Due to their distinctive qualities and adaptability, they are frequently employed in industrial applications. Metallic stearates most frequently contain the metals calcium, zinc, magnesium, and aluminium. Stearic acid generally reacts with metal oxides, hydroxides, or carbonates to form metallic stearates. Depending on the particular metal utilised, the resultant compounds are powders or waxy solids that have different properties. Metallic stearates are used as foam suppressants in a variety of industrial procedures, including the creation of polymers and plastic extrusion. They support maintaining product quality by preventing the production of undesired foam.


Impact of COVID-19 On the Global Metallic Stearates Market

With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the virus has affected more than 180 nations which has caused huge loss in terms of economy and lives across the world. The metallic stearates market has affected the market in a negative way due to its dependence on plastic manufacturing, building and construction, and various other end users. Apart from this, the risk faced by the workforce has led to delay in the operation of construction projects amidst the pandemic. Furthermore, various key sustainable plastic manufacturers were forced to shut down their companies or stop their operations which had led to disruptions in supply chains. In addition, metallic stearates that are produced using raw materials are hired or purchased from various enterprises. The decreasing purchasing power of suppliers has also impacted the market negatively. The COVID-19 pandemic has also resulted in transportation interruptions, issues with contractual ramifications, a labour shortage, and other factors that collectively have caused the paints & coatings sector to experience a decline.

Key Market Drivers

The usage of polymers in different end use industries has witnessed significant surge in the past few years owing to their unique features like durability, high strength, flexibility, and light weight nature. The demand of polymer is growing in industries like packaging, automotive, construction as well as electronics. With the increase in the demand for polymers, the demand for metallic stearates which are known to be primary additives in the production of polymers. Metallic stearates are widely used in the form of stabilizers, lubricants, and release agents in the polymer processing which improves their efficiency and quality. For instance, metallic stearates are combined to polyvinyl chloride products in order to improve their processing features as well as mechanical features. 


Key Market Challenges

The strict regulations imposed by the government in the environment are hampering the growth of the global metallic stearates market. Many countries have implemented stringent rules regarding the usage  of metallic stearates owing to their health as well as environmental hazards. The price is raw matrials that are used to produce metallic stearates lime metal oxides and stearic acid are subject to various fluctuations owing different supply and demand dynamics, fluctuations in trade policies, and geopolitical events. 


Market Segmentation

Product Insights

Zinc segment is dominating the market with the largest market share over the forecast period

On the basis of product, the global metallic stearates market is segmented into zinc, calcium, aluminium. Among these, zinc segment is dominating the market with the largest market share over the forecast period. It is polar solvents like ether and alcohol that it cannot dissolve, although chlorinated and aromatic hydrocarbons may. The most effective mould release agent is zinc stearate since it lacks an electrolyte and possesses a hydrophobic agent. In the plastic and rubber industries, they serve as lubricants and release agents.


Calcium stearate segment, on the other hand anticipated to witness the fastest market growth over the forecast period. Being a lubricant and releasing agent, calcium stearate is frequently employed in the manufacture of plastics and rubber. It enhances the materials' processing flow characteristics and keeps them from adhering to moulds or other machinery. In the formulation of pharmaceuticals, it serves as an excipient. In the production of tablets, calcium stearate functions as a lubricant and anti-adherent, enabling the smooth disengagement of tablets from the punches or dies.


Application Insights

Plastics segment accounted the largest market share over the forecast period

Based on the application, the global metallic stearates market is segmented into Plastics, Rubber, Pharmaceutical, Cosmetics. Among these, plastics segment accounted the largest market share over the forecast period. The plastics segment primarily uses metallic stearates as lubricants, acid scavengers, and releasing agents. It is essential to the melting process as well. By creating products with smoother surfaces and reduced friction, it enables businesses to optimise productivity.


Rubber, on the other hand is anticipated to witness the fastest market share over the forecast period. Metallic stearates can be utilised as foam stabilisers in specific rubber applications where foaming is needed. They contribute to better foam structure and performance in goods like foam rubber sheets, seals, and gaskets by assisting in controlling the size, homogeneity, and stability of foam cells.
