Sodium stearyl fumarate refers to a monoester of fumaric acid used as a water-soluble lubricant in the advancement of various products such as tablets, food products, and personal care products. Sodium stearyl fumarate is used in the same way as magnesium stearate with similar lubrication efficiency. However, due to lesser hardness, and insufficient tablets stability provided by conventional lubricating agents, sodium stearyl fumarate come into demand. It has good compatibility with APIs such as fluvoxamine, and a perfect lubricant for high-performance formulations. Sodium stearyl fumarate is applied in numerous applications, such as, wet granulation, dry granulation, and direct compression. Some of the key properties of sodium stearyl fumarate include anti-adherent, hydrophilic, control particle size, lamellar structure, less sensitivity to blending time, high consistency compared to magnesium stearate.
The global sodium stearyl fumarate market is witnessing maximum growth due to its lower hydrophobicity property which does not enhance tablet disintegration time, reduce friction, high melting point, compatibility, solubility and a substitute to magnesium stearate. Furthermore, sodium stearyl fumarate improved drug stability, faster formulation development, harder tablets, and faster dissolution rates, provide protection from over blending, and augmented lubrication efficiency is some of the reasons that can boost the demand for global sodium stearyl fumarate market during the forecast period. However, evolving safety standards, clinical trials are time-consuming paired with significant capital investment may dampen the growth of sodium stearyl fumarate market in near future.
The global sodium stearyl fumarate market has been classified on the basis of application, and end user. Based on application, the global sodium stearyl fumarate market is categorized into Tablets & Capsules, Oral Dosages, Bath Products, Hair & Skin Care Products, Food Additive and others. On the basis of end user, the global sodium stearyl fumarate market is segmented into Pharmaceutical Industry, Food & Beverages Industry, Cosmetics & Personal Care Industry, among others.
The global sodium stearyl fumarate market revenue is estimated to grow at a rapid growth rate, during the forecast period. The market is expected to perform well in the ensuing future due to the rising demand for sodium stearyl fumarate from pharmaceutical industry. The demand is likely to generate mainly from the APAC region, and Latin America region. Moreover, sodium stearyl fumarate is used for dough conditioner, wheat flour treatment agent, oxidant, and offer various advantages such as high degree of API compatibility, no adverse effect on bioavailability, robustness to over lubrication are some of the factors that can accelerate the market revenue growth of sodium stearyl fumarate during the forecast period.
Based on the end user, pharmaceutical industry segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period attributed to use as a lubricant in the development of capsules, tablets and other oral dosage forms.
