Rubber Anti Caking Agents Market

Rubber anticaking agent is an additive placed in powdered or granulated materials, such as table salt or confectioneries, to prevent the formation of lumps (caking) and for easing packaging, transport, flowability, and consumption. Caking mechanisms depend on the nature of the material. Crystalline solids often cake by formation of liquid bridge and subsequent fusion of microcrystals. Amorphous materials can cake by glass transitions and changes in viscosity. Polymorphic phase transitions can also induce caking. Some rubber anticaking agents function by absorbing excess moisture or by coating particles and making them water-repellent. Calcium silicate (CaSiO3), a commonly used anti-caking agent, added to e.g. table salt, absorbs both water and oil. Anticaking agents are also used in non-food items such as road salt, fertilizers, cosmetics, synthetic detergents, and in manufacturing applications. Some studies suggest that rubber anticaking agents may have a negative effect on the nutritional content of food; one such study indicated that most anti-caking agents result in the additional degradation of vitamin C added to food. Generally, anti-caking agents are used in a number of industries such as cosmetics, fertilizers, food, detergents, and rubber. Different agents used for actual applications include calcium silicate, magnesium stearate, sodium aluminosilicate, potassium stearate, and silicon dioxide. Potassium stearate is the anti-caking agent that is specifically used in the rubber industry.

Global Rubber Anti-Caking Agents Market: Overview

Anti-caking agents are essentially finely powdered materials used as additives to prevent the formations of lumps in food or other mixes. Anti-caking agents are soluble in water in nature, while some are also soluble in organic solvents and alcohol. They are applied as layer on the matrix to ingest excess moisture or to create a water-repellent coating on the surface. Some of the commonly used anti-caking agents are tricalcium phosphate, sodium bicarbonate, sodium ferrocyanide, powdered cellulose, and others. Anti-caking agents are used in a number of industries such as food and beverages, cosmetics, fertilizers, rubber and detergents.

Rubber anti-caking agents can be classified on the basis of source, solubility and region. Sources include natural and synthetic (man-made) agents. Natural anti-caking agents such as calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate have extremely high costs and hence synthetic agents face higher demand. By product solubility, rubber anti-caking agents are segmented into water soluble, organic solvent soluble, and alcohol soluble.

The report by Transparency Market Research (TMR) offers an evaluation of the global rubber anti-caking market, taking into account its growth drivers, restraints, and business prospects.

Global Rubber Anti-Caking Agents Market: Trends and Opportunities

Generally, anti-caking agents are used in a number of industries such as cosmetics, fertilizers, food, detergents, and rubber. Different agents used for actual applications include calcium silicate, magnesium stearate, sodium aluminosilicate, potassium stearate, and silicon dioxide. Potassium stearate is the anti-caking agent that is specifically used in the rubber industry. Potassium stearate is a type of anti-caking agent that is widely applied in acrylate rubber soap or sulfur and vulcanized system. Potassium stearate is an anionic surface active agent. The recent surge in packaging and transportation sectors is a significant factor anticipated to boost the global rubber anticaking agents market.

Global Rubber Anti-Caking Agents Market: Geographical Analysis

The global rubber anti-caking agents market is analyzed geographically with reference to the regions of North America, South America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. Among these, Asia Pacific held a substantial market share in 2016 and is expected to keep leading the regional markets. The population boom in the region, on account of countries like India and China, will bring about an upswing.
