Wax is a broad category of organic compounds that are lipophilic and bendable solids at room temperature that tend to melt at a higher temperature. It includes lipids and higher alkanes that are insoluble in water but soluble in nonpolar, organic solvents. Wax is generally derived from petroleum and bio-based resources which are extracted from crude oil refining. These materials include base oil, natural gas, compounds like polyethylene, plants, and the skin of animals. Wax has applications across paints, bundling, hardware, electrical, ink and coatings, elastic, pharmaceuticals, and beautifying agents.
According to Ken Research Analysis, the Global Wax Market was valued at US$ 5 billion in 2017. Furthermore, owing to the growing demand for wax in various industries for its superior properties like high gloss acting as water and chemical resistance, it is estimated to be US$ 10 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach a market size of US$ 14 billion by 2028 growing with a CAGR of 5%.
Increasing demand for wax from the candle and packaging industry and increasing consumer concern towards the adoption of bio-based wax is driving the growth of the Global Wax Market.
The increasing consumer concern about the adverse effect of the chemical products such as polymer wax, and paraffin wax in the cosmetics industry is leading to the increase in demand for bio-based wax. Several manufacturers of cosmetics and care products develop bio-based products. Burt's Bees USA launched beeswax-based balms and sold one balm per second across the globe in 2020.
Fluctuations in raw material prices, USA-China trade war conflicts, and the rising cost of synthetic and bio-based waxes are major challenges for the Global Wax Market.
The price and supply volatility of crude oil impacts the growth of petroleum wax, as the petroleum wax is separated from a wax oil mixture by centrifuging it at a lower temperature.
According to Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute, the packaging companies produce over 8.1 million tons of packaging products wax per year in Mexico, which is likely to be a restraint of the market.
COVID-19 negatively impacted the Global Wax Market. The COVID-19 pandemic led to the partial or complete shutdown of production activities in various industrial areas such as packaging, cosmetics, and candle making. Supply chain disruption affected the logistics of raw materials. As a result, production declined for various industries which depended on wax.
The production of candles in the European Union was affected during the pandemic crisis producing approx. 738 tons of candles in 2020 which increased to 817 tons of candle production post-COVID-19 in 2021.
