The polyethylene wax market is projected to grow from USD 1.08 Billion in 2017 to USD 1.32 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2017 to 2022. Major factors driving the market are the increasing use of polyethylene wax in various applications, such as plastic processing, hot-melt adhesive, ink & coating, and others.

Modification is the fastest-growing segment of the polyethylene wax market. The LDPE and HDPE waxes are obtained through the polymerization process. These waxes are generally used as a lubricant for PVC processing, a modifier in hot-melt adhesives, and an additive in the water-based emulsion to improve slip, rub, and scratch resistance.   

Oxidized is the fastest-growing segment of the polyethylene wax market during the forecast period. The growth of oxidized polyethylene wax is backed by its use in different applications such as lubricants for PVC processing, dispersing agents for polar masterbatches, surface modifiers in hot-melt adhesives, and processing aids in various industries.  

Ink & coating is the fastest-growing application segment of the polyethylene wax market in 2016. Polyethylene wax is used as an additive in the ink & coating industry to impart mark and scratch resistance, improved slip, and rub and moisture resistance.

The polyethylene wax market in APAC is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. Emerging economies, such as China, India, and various Southeast Asian countries are attracting several global players to increase its footprint and market share in APAC.

Polyethylene Wax Market

Factors such as volatility in the prices of raw materials may restrain the growth of the polyethylene wax market, globally.  

BASF (Germany), Clariant International (Switzerland), Trecora Resources (US), Mitsui Chemicals (Japan), Marcus Oil and Chemical (US), and Honeywell International (US) are some of the key market players in the polyethylene wax market. Diverse product portfolios, strategically positioned R&D centers, continuous adoption of various growth strategies, and advancements in technologies for the development of new types of products and technologies are the factors responsible for the strong position of these companies in the polyethylene wax market.
