The global wax emulsion market was valued at USD 2.6 Billion in 2015, and is projected to reach USD 3.2 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2016 to 2021. No substitutes along with the demand from end-user industries such as paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, cosmetics, and others drive the global wax emulsion market during the forecast period.

The polyethylene type segment dominated the global wax emulsion market in 2015 and is expected to continue the same during the forecast period. This growth is mainly attributed to the rise in construction activities in emerging economies and the absence of close substitute for wax emulsion. Physical attributes such as water-repellence, abrasion resistance, slip control, lubrication, and anti-blocking are also contributing towards the growth of polyethylene as the most preferred material for wax emulsion.

Synthetic wax emulsions are being used in majority of the applications and thus this material base segment accounts for more than 50% of the overall wax emulsion market. Increasing demand from industries such as paints & coatings, cosmetics, and construction is driving the growth of this segment.

Paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, cosmetics, and textiles are the major end-use industries for wax emulsion market. Paints & coatings contributed the largest market share in 2015. Properties such as ease of use, physical stability, and environment friendly lead to the popularity of wax emulsion in 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.

The Asia-Pacific region dominated the global wax emulsion market in 2015.
