Anti-tack agents are the agents that are used to eliminate the self-adhesive property of rubber. These are generally used on unvulcanized rubber which provides the separation and release after storing of rubber during the manufacturing process. Uncured rubber does not have superior adhesive properties like other rubber but possess stickiness which is termed as tack. Rubber contains long chain polymer with helical structure. It forms cohesion with other another rubber surface due to the entangling of uncured rubber surface contact. To prevent the tackiness, anti-tack agents are used.
Increasing demand from rubber industries for anti-tack agents to store uncured, unvulcanised rubber without damaging it is expected to drive the market demand. Additionally, the ample availability of stearic acid that is used to produce stearates, a common anti-tack agent is expected to boost the market growth.
However, the stearates produced using vegetable oils and animal fats are slightly higher in cost. There are continuous fluctuations in prices of oils and fats. This is expected to hinder the market growth.
Based on the product, the market is segmented into fatty acid ester, fatty acid amides, stearates, soaps, and others. Based on application, the market is segmented into rubber industry, and others.
From a geographical standpoint, the market is categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
Key Market Driver -
Increasing demand from rubber industry.
Key Market Restraint -
High cost of stearates.
