By Type, Zinc Stearates accounted for the largest share in 2022.

Zinc stearates have excellent release properties and are highly effective in preventing sticking and fouling of molds during the production of rubber and plastics. This has led to widespread use of zinc stearates as a release agent in the rubber and plastics industries. Additionally, zinc stearates have good lubricating properties, which make them useful in a range of applications, including cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and food. Zinc stearates are also non-toxic and non-reactive, making them safe for use in many applications. Furthermore, the increasing demand for eco-friendly and sustainable products is driving manufacturers to develop bio-based zinc stearates from renewable sources, which is further driving the growth of the zinc stearates market.

By End-Use Industry, Polymer and rubber accounted for the largest share in 2022.

Metallic stearates are widely used in polymer and rubber end-use industries as lubricants and release agents. They are added to rubber and polymer compounds to improve their processing characteristics, such as flow properties, mold release, and dispersion of fillers. Metallic stearates act as a barrier between the polymer or rubber and the mold, which prevents sticking and fouling of the molds, leading to improved efficiency and higher-quality end products. In addition to being used as lubricants and release agents, metallic stearates are also used as stabilizers in the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) products.
