According to the report, The global metallic stearate market in 2019 was approximately USD 3.5 billion. The market is expected to grow above a CAGR of nearly 5% and is anticipated to reach over USD 5 billion by 2026.
Metallic stearate is a chemical compound that is available in various forms such as aluminium, zinc, magnesium, calcium, etc. Metallic stearate consists of a long hydrocarbon chain. As hydrocarbon chain is insoluble in water, this makes the metallic stearate hydrophobic in nature. Commercially used metallic stearates are manufactured from fatty acids, which are produced from natural sources. Metallic stearates are primarily created from organic raw materials. In plastic applications, use of metallic stearate for producing allows the manufacturer to produce goods with higher surface finish and minimum friction. In pharmaceutical and cosmetic applications, metallic stearates are used because of their lubrication and water repellent properties.
