The global market for stearates is divided on the basis of product type, application, and geography. By product type, calcium stearate, zinc stearate, aluminum monostearates, sodium stearate, magnesium stearate, and others (including lithium stearate, etc.) are the segments of the stearate market.By product type, sodium stearate was the largest product segment and held more than 25% of the overall market for stearates in 2013. Calcium stearate stood as the second largest product segment due to its excellent lubrication and releasing properties, which are suitable in plastic and rubber processing.
However, magnesium stearate is expected to display the fastest growth in the global stearates market during the forecast period. In the pharmaceutical industry, magnesium stearate is used as a lubricant and process catalyst during the formulation of tablets and dietary supplements. In terms of demand from end users, the plastic and rubber processing industry has been registering the highest demand for stearates over the past few years. This is mainly due to their use as an anti-tacking agent to maintain consistent movement of the substrate in rubber processing. In 2013, the building and construction sector registered the second largest demand for stearates. Their use lies in functioning as a water repellant in cement and mortar and to offer hydrophobic properties to buildings.
