Global Market Study
on Wax: APEJ to
Lead the Global
Market in Terms of Revenue during 2017 - 2026
The report by Persistence Market Research (PMR) expects the global wax
market to witness sluggish growth. It is also anticipated to register CAGR of
2.9% during the forecast period between 2017 and 2026. The global wax
market is also expected to bring in US$ 11,017.7 million revenue towards the
end of 2026.
There are different types of waxes being used for various applications. For
instance, the fossil-based wax is being largely used for making candles,
coatings and polishing, and in packaging. Meanwhile, paraffin wax which is
derived from various processes of crude oil refining is being used in beauty and
cosmetic care industry as it is safe to use. However, the demand for paraffin
wax is declining as the demand for bio-based wax is growing, especially in the
various countries in Asia-Pacific. The fully refined waxes are also widely used
for candle making and as wax coatings for paper, film and foil substrates used
in the packaging. The global wax market has also become highly volatile in the
recent years owing to the price volatility of crude oil.
Increasing Application of Wax in Various Industries to Impact the Market
Strengthening economy in the developed nations is supporting the
manufacturing sector. Hence, the industrial wax is witnessing a rise in demand
for adhesives, inks and coatings, and plastic and rubber processing. Meanwhile,
these processing mostly uses cost-effective wax. The wax is expected to witness
strong demand in the manufacturing sector and in construction activity.
However, owing to the closure of some wax producing plants in North America
and Europe is resulting in the decline in the wax market. Meanwhile, the
demand for vegetable and synthetic wax has increased. Moreover, it is also
becoming inevitable for wax producing companies to shift from petroleum wax
to natural vegetable and synthetic wax. These companies are therefore adopting
innovative technologies in their production facilities.
