The Middle East & Africa is expected to witness increasing demand for Anti-Tacking Agents during the forecast period. The ongoing infrastructural projects carried out by the governments in the Middle Eastern countries, such as the UAE and Qatar, to drive the regional tourism industry are expected to witness high demand for rubber, which, in turn, is expected to fuel the growth of the anti-tacking agents market in the coming years. For instance, the Qatar government has invested around USD 200 billion in the FIFA 2022 World Cup and the UAE government invested around USD 14 billion in the Dubai Metro project.
Anti-tacking agents are chemical compounds that are used in the rubber industry to eradicate the self-adhesive property of uncured rubber during its storage. Anti-tacking agents are applied on the surface of the uncured rubbers to release or separate it after storage, which eases the handling and transportation of uncured rubber. Space and logistics limitations in the rubber industry allow for the necessity of anti-tacking agents, as if rubber could be mixed, milled, and then cured without ever coming in contact with itself, anti-tacking agents would not be necessary.
Some of the commonly available anti-tacking agents in the market are stearates, fatty acid esters, fatty acid amides, soap, and silicone polymers. Besides these, fillers such as talc, mica, clay, and calcium carbonate are also used as dusting agents to prevent the rubber from sticking. These fillers are used extensively as neat materials and components of anti-tack formulas. According to MRFR analysis, stearates are dominating the global anti-tacking agents market due to their easy handling and efficient results.
Increasing automotive production and sales across the globe have resulted in the increased demand for durable tires, which is likely to boost the rubber market and thus fuel the growth of the global anti-tacking agents market. The growing middle-class population and the increase in income levels and standard of living have resulted in the increasing need for consumer durables viz. gloves, molded rubber goods, footwear, latex products, which, in turn, is expected to boost the rubber industry and thus propel the growth of the product market. Increasing construction activities in developed and developing countries are also driving the growth of the product market. Furthermore, rapid industrialization and urbanization in Asia-Pacific are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for players operating in the anti-tacking agents market during the forecast period.
However, the volatile prices of raw materials due to fluctuating crude oil prices is a factor that could restrict the market growth. Moreover, stringent environmental regulations and rising health concerns associated with the usage of stearates may restrain the growth of the global anti-tacking agents market.

Growing health awareness and high budget allocations for the healthcare sector is expected to boost demand for medical gloves. Such factors are expected to drive the Anti-Tacking Agents Market in Asia-Pacific.
Europe was the second-largest market for anti-tacking agents in 2018 and is expected to register significant growth during the forecast period. The region has the largest automotive industry in the world, witness high demand for tires & tubes, molded rubber products, and belting. Additionally, the growing building renovation activities in the region are also supporting the product market growth. High demand for medical gloves from healthcare industry is also expected to bolster product market growth in the region.
North America is another major market for anti-tacking agents. The growth is attributed to the growth of the regional medical industry, primarily for medical gloves, due to the growing awareness about hygiene by restricting bacteria and virus transmission and the growing aging population in the region. Furthermore, the high purchasing power in the US and Canada leads to high demand for consumer durables such as footwear and electronics, which is expected to drive the growth of Anti-Tacking Agents Market in the region.
Latin America held the least market share of the global market in 2018 due to the slow economic progress. However, the region is expected to show an increasing demand for anti-tacking agents during the forecast period due to the rising consumption of rubber in the region. Brazil is largest producer and consumer of rubber in the region, and thus drives the demand for anti-tacking agents. Argentina is another major market for anti-tacking agents in the region.Recent DevelopmentOctober 2021- Hallstar, a manufacturer and distributor of solutions for the industrial polymer and beauty and personal care sectors, has announced that the company has received a platinum rating from EcoVadis.
