Therefore stringent regulations are imposed by the government to administrate the quantity used in such applications. Such factors are considered as the major challenges for the overall growth of the metallic stearates industry.


 


Cumulative growth analysis:


 


The metallic stearates market value was at USD 3 billion in the year 2020 and it is expected to surpass the market value of over USD 4.1 billion by the year 2026 while registering a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. The market value is highly influenced by the intensive usage in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. The changing attitude of the customers and the increasing disposable income in the developed countries has increased the demand for cosmetics. Especially, magnesium and calcium stearates are used in facial creams and lotions as they are considered non-toxic.


 


The increasing demand for polymers and plastics in various construction and consumer products is impacting the overall growth of the metallic stearates industry. However, there are a few downfalls, which are primarily due to the health hazards for the professionals working in the industries. The economic slowdown across the globe has also impacted the metallic stearates industry negatively.


 


Value chain analysis:


 


Metallic stearates are used in varied end-user industries for varied purposes such as lubricant and acid stabilizer in processing the polymers and emulsifiers, thickening agents in personal care, and another important role in the pharmaceutical industry. Several manufacturers are providing products based on the applications and convenience of the end-user industries. The products are available in metal, physical form, and aqueous stearate dispersions and various forms such as prill, pastille, flake, and granular. Such varied forms and applications of metallic stearates availability in the market have augmented the overall growth of the metallic stearates industry in recent years.


 


They are also called metal soaps, fatty acid metal salts, which are produced using natural acids like stearic acid, palmitic acid, and so on. The fatty acids used in the production of metallic stearates are derived from animals or plants. Therefore they are categorized as soluble and insoluble in water. This solubility in water is considered to be a crucial part of varied applications. Therefore the end-user industries look for the characteristics of the metallic stearates when choosing for the application.
