Chemical and Materials Industrial Wax Market

The Industrial Wax Market size is projected to grow at a CAGR 3.78% rate during the forecast period. Industrial wax is an organic substance, used in candles, packaging, coatings & polishing, hot-melt adhesive, tire & rubber, cosmetics & personal care, and food applications. Hence, the growing demand from these applications will directly influence the growth of the industrial wax market.Based on application, Packaging segment expected to capture second-largest market share that uses industrial wax. The industrial waxes possess good lubricating and moisture barrier properties that make it suitable for the food packaging materials providing protection to dried foods against moisture or reduce the moisture loss of the packaged food.


Based on type, bio-based waxes segment expected to be the second-largest type of the industrial wax market. Bio-based waxes are renewable and environmentally-friendly. Hence, the rising environmental concerns and the low availability and cost of alternatives such as paraffin waxes together are expected to raise the demand for bio-based waxes globally. These waxes are used in several applications, such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, polishes, and cheese coatings and others.


The Asia Pacific region is estimated to remain at the top position in overall industrial wax market in 2018. Growing consumption of candles, packaging products and coatings China, India, Japan, among other countries in APAC region is one of the major drivers for the growth of the APAC industrial wax market.
