Automotive and Transportation Wax Emulsion Market

The absence of substitutes, along with the considerable demand from end-user industries such as paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, and cosmetics, are expected to drive the global wax emulsion market in the coming years.

Synthetic wax emulsions are extensively consumed as material base for manufacturing purpose. The availability of these products with varied properties makes it suitable for numerous applications. Henceforth, the constant demand from a significant number of applications across paints & coatings, cosmetics, and construction is expected to propel the growth of the segment over the forecast period.

Polyethylene wax emulsions are commonly demanded due to its economical price and easy availability. This segment is anticipated to register the fastest growth during the forecast period. The rising construction activities in emerging economies and the absence of close substitute for wax emulsion are the major drivers for the growth of the respective segment. Physical attributes such as water-repellence, abrasion resistance, slip control, lubrication, and anti-blocking are also the contributing factors and are preferred material for wax emulsion.

Paints & coatings contributed to the major share of market in 2018. Properties such as ease of use, physical stability, and environment-friendly have led to its increased consumption in the paints & coatings industry instead of solvents. However, the textiles segment is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Improved tear resistance, fabric softening, heat setting, reduced needle cutting are some of the added benefits of using wax emulsion in textiles.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR. Emerging countries such as China, Japan, and India together accounted for the largest share of the Asia Pacific wax emulsion market in 2018. Industries such as paints & coatings and adhesives & sealants are likely to trigger the growth in wax emulsion market. Easy availability and cost-effective labor are driving the demand for wax emulsions.
