Ethylene Bis Stearamide EBS Market Outlook

The global ethylene bis stearamide (EBS) market is set to reach a valuation of US$ 367.4 million in 2023 and it is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% to reach US$ 610.0 million by the end of 2033.

Ethylene bis stearmide is employed as a nucleating agent in polyolefins, polyformaldehyde, polyamide, and other polymers to shorten the nucleating time, improve transparency, and increase crystallinity. This encourages the structure of resin to grow finer, improving the product’s mechanical properties and transparency. EBS is widely used for raising the melting point of petroleum products, lowering the viscidity of asphaltum, embedding electric component materials, and others.

Market Buoyancy Analysis

Ethylene bis stearamide is a synthetic wax that is used as a blending, release, antistatic, antifoaming, or degassing agent in various manufacturing processes, particularly during plastic manufacturing. It is used as an internal and external lubricant during plastic manufacturing to reduce friction, prevent overheating, and reduce the adhesion between melted polymer and metal surfaces.

The global ethylene bis stearamide market has posted credible gains most notably in plastic manufacturing and building & construction. Uptake has also been witnessed across the textile and paint manufacturing industries as well.

  • Short Term (2023-2026): Burgeoning demand from the plastic industry which is expanding due to increased plastic consumption in various industries is driving the market for ethylene bis stearamide.
  • Medium Term (2026-2029): Government initiatives for infrastructure development and the growing rubber and adhesives industry are set to augment the ethylene bis stearmide market growth, especially in North America and Asia.
  • Long Term (2029-2033): Growing demand for natural and synthetic amide waxes for deployment across powder metallurgy and cosmetics industries to drive ethylene bis stearamide demand in the long run.

Over the 2018-2022 historical period, the global ethylene bis stearamide (EBS) market registered a CAGR of 3.5%, according to the Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 5.2% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.

Market Dynamics Overview

“Plethora of Applications to Boost the Demand for EBS”

EBS is used as a dispersing agent or as a lubricant to aid in the dispersion of compounding materials, lessen friction, improve processability, and abrasion of the polymer surface, and contribute to color stability and polymer degradation. EBS also contributes to maintaining the stability of the color and degradation of the polymer.

Ethylene bis stearmide increases the surface fineness of rubber pipes and rubber plates to serve as a rubber surface polishing agent in addition to the lubricant demolding property and altering the performance of the filler surface. EBS enhances the kneading, processing, and vulcanization capabilities of rubber grains in the production of fluoro-rubber.

EBS can be added to the coating production process to improve surface leveling, prevent paint film stripping, boost water resistance, acid resistance, and alkali resistance, as well as to increase the uniform dispersion of pigment and filler. It may cause the flatting action in nitrocellulose lacquers.

Ethylene bis stearamide is frequently used as a leveling and anti-sticking agent in painting and printing. It is a crucial lubricant that lowers friction in wire drawing applications.

Owing to its demand during the manufacturing process from various end-use industries, the demand for EBS is anticipated to expand during the forecast period.

“Growing Concerns Over Plastic Pollution to Hamper Market Growth”

Global concerns over the consumption of plastic are forcing a number of sectors to change the materials they use in their supply chains. Over 15 trillion macro and microplastic fragments are thought to be present in the oceans, with 14 million tons of plastic pieces entering the ocean each year.

Under the influence of natural factors such as winds, UV radiation, currents, and other forces, plastic breaks into very small fragments called microplastic. The smaller size makes it easy to be ingested by aquatic life causing harm to their life.

Manufacturers are turning to eco-friendly substitutes, primarily made from natural resources like wood, bamboo, and other materials in industries like building and automotive manufacturing due to growing concern over plastic. This may limit the adoption of EBS across a number of areas in the ensuing years.

Country-wise Insights

How does Resin Production Bolster the EBS Market Growth in the U.S.?

The US is projecting prominent growth in the production of major plastic resins, the increasing in production is due to high demand from the electronics, packaging, adhesives, and automotive industries. The Polymer Properties Database further estimates that the US plastics industry is the third largest manufacturing industry in the country, employing nearly a million people across the manufacturing sector.

In the United States, there are more than 2.2 million miles of paved roadways, with more than 94 percent of them having an asphalt surface. The deterioration of important roads and national highways has led government agencies to fund several transportation infrastructure initiatives that will create new revenue opportunities for EBS manufacturers.

How China’s Building & Construction Industry Pivot EBS Market Growth?

China has seen a massive incline in the building and construction projects being executed across amid the increasing need to accommodate the ever-expanding population. A report on global skyscraper construction by the Council on Tall Buildings found that China has constructed more supertall buildings exceeding 200 meters in height than the rest of the world combined. China is home to 10 of the 20 tallest buildings in the world.

Today, China is the largest producer of plastics comprising around 25% of global plastic production, followed by Europe (20%) and the US (19.5%). The production of plastic is increasing in China due to the presence of prominent manufacturers and expanding end-use industries.

Hence, the scope for various construction chemicals, including EBS, is increasing tremendously.

Which is the Most Preferred Ethylene Bis Stearamide Form?

Ethylene bis stearamide in powder is getting a lot of attention due to the increasing demand for friction reduction in many production processes. In the manufacturing of all plastic kinds, the powder is particularly well suited as an internal and external lubricant, pigment stabilizer, and dispersant.

It is also utilized in the manufacture of rubber as a release agent and additive to surface finishing in the manufacture of paper and textiles as an anti-static and anti-foaming agent. It is used as a modifier in the manufacture of asphalt to reduce the temperature at which the asphalt softens.

Why is Plastic Manufacturing the Primary Application Area for EBS?

The plastic manufacturing industry is expected to continue to be the key application area for EBS due to the increased need for different polymers like PVC, PP, ABS resins, polystyrene, polyolefins, polyamides, and polyurethane for a variety of uses. Additionally, ethylene bis stearamide has good antistatic qualities and is highly compatible with most wax and plasticizer giving higher lubrication, and high stability.

When used with the primary stabilizer in the formulations of inorganic filler for PVC and polyolefin, ethylene bis stearamide significantly improves the heat-resistant and weather-resistant qualities. EBS can improve the dispersion and coupling property of fillers in the polymers to increase the commercial value of end products because it has high cohesions with pigment or fillers.
