The global industrial wax market was USD 7.81 Billion in 2015, and is projected to reach USD 10.07 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2016 to 2021 and USD 12.84 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.7%, during 2016 to 2026.  With the expected stabilization of global oil prices by 2020-2021, advances in the manufacture of synthetic wax and the increased use of wax in corrugated packaging, it is estimated that industrial wax would depict slightly higher growth rates in the long term forecast.

The objectives of the report are as follows:

  • To define and segment the global industrial wax market
  • To provide detailed information regarding the major factors influencing the growth of the global market of industrial wax (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges)
  • To analyze and forecast the market size of industrial wax, in terms of volume and value
  • To analyze the market segmentation and project the market size, in terms of volume and value, and for key regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa
  • To analyze the competitive developments such as new product launches, capacity expansions, mergers & acquisitions, and partnerships & agreements, in the global industrial wax market
  • To strategically profile the key players in the global industrial wax market

The base year considered for the study is 2015, the mid-term forecast period is from 2016 to 2021, and the long-term forecast period is from 2016 to 2026.

Research Methodology

Both, top-down and bottom-up approaches have been used to estimate and validate the size of the global industrial wax market and to estimate the sizes of various other dependent submarkets in the overall industrial wax market. The research study involved the extensive use of secondary sources, directories, and databases such as Hoovers, Bloomberg, Chemical Weekly, Factiva, and other government and private websites to identify and collect information useful for the technical, market-oriented, and commercial study of the global industrial wax market.

Industrial Wax Market

To know about the assumptions considered for the study, download the pdf brochure

The value chain of the industrial wax market starts with the sourcing of the basic raw materials, manufacturing and supplying to intermediate product manufacturers, and ends with use in the various end-use applications. Slack wax is the main raw material for the production of petroleum wax. Natural gas acts as the main raw material for the gas to liquids (GTL) process. Either the crude oil refiners themselves produce wax or the slack wax is sold to wax manufacturers. Small wax manufacturers buy slack wax from refiners and refine it to produce paraffin wax and other products. Some of the key players in the market are, Sinopec Corp. (China), Royal Dutch Shell Plc. (The Netherlands), Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) (Brazil), ExxonMobil Corp. (U.S.), Sasol Limited. (South Africa), and OJSC Lukoil (Russia).

The global industrial wax market is projected to reach USD 12.84 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2016 to 2026. Industrial wax has properties such as moldability, viscosity regulation, moisture control and lubrication. These factors drive the global industrial wax market.

Industrial wax products find usage in applications such as, candles, packaging, coatings & polishing, hot melt adhesives, tires & rubber, cosmetics & personal care, food, and others (agriculture, printing inks, chlorinated paraffin, and PVC).

The candles application accounted for the largest share of the overall industrial wax market and is expected to continue to do so throughout the forecast period. Industrial wax is used for the production of candles as it has good calorific value, thus providing fuel for controlled burn.

Companies are carrying out intense research & development activities to innovate and develop new products which can open new avenues of applications. Sinopec Corp, through its subsidiary, Jinan Company, made a new technological breakthrough on paraffin production and successfully produced No. 62 and No. 66 fully refined paraffin wax.

Industrial Wax Market

Growth in the candles and packaging applications has increased the demand for industrial wax. The Asia-Pacific region accounts for the largest share of the global industrial wax market and is also the fastest-growing market. China is expected to account for the largest share in the Asia-Pacific region till 2026, with India registering the fastest growth rate for the forecast period. China has prominent industrial wax companies such as Sinopec Corp. and HCl WAX. The U.S. is the largest market for industrial wax in North America.

The shrinking supply of paraffin wax, increasing prices of synthetic and bio-based wax, are the major restraints for the market. However, industrial wax is preferred over the others, due to its better moldability, viscosity regulation, moisture control, lubrication, and other properties.

Companies have adopted the new product developments, expansions, contracts & agreements, and joint-venture strategies, to expand their market shares and distribution networks in the global industrial wax market for the forecast period, 2016 to 2026.

Sinopec Corp.’s overdependence on the Chinese market has adversely affected the financial performance of the company. The fall in crude oil prices, coupled with the devaluation of the Renminbi have resulted in the decline in the financial performance of the company by 30%. However, sales volumes of refined petroleum products (excluding gasoline, diesel, kerosene and chemical feedstock) in 2015 have increased by 5.0% compared to the previous year, indicating the growing demand for these commodities. Increasing activity in R&D by the company is observed by way of the R&D expenditure as well as the investments and the establishment of R&D facilities. This will help the company in catering to the needs of the consumers as well as in improvements in production efficiency and product quality.
