The market has experienced significant challenges owing to high raw material prices. The key raw material required in the production of the product is stearic acid. Stearic acid is a long-chain fatty acid that is obtained from animal fat and vegetable oils. Palm kernel oil is most prominently used in the production of stearic acid. Price fluctuations of palm kernel oil lead to instability in the cost of stearic acid, which in turn hampers the market. Apart from magnesium stearate, some of the commonly used substitutes include calcium stearate, zinc stearate, talc, hydrogenated vegetable oil, waxes, sodium stearyl fumarate, and glyceryl behenate.

The product is commonly produced as stearic acid, which is generally derived from palm oil and magnesium salts such as magnesium oxides, sodium stearate, magnesium hydroxides, and magnesium sulfate. Stearic acid, also known as octadecanoic acid, is a colorless waxy solid with long-chain fatty acid and an ester of fatty alcohol. It is primarily derived from animal fat. It can also be derived from vegetable oil, palm kernel oil, coconut oil, sunflower oil, rapeseed oil, and soybean oil.
