Based on process, polymerization is expected to be the largest segment of the market, in terms of volume, during the forecast period.
The polymerization process segment accounted for the largest share in terms of volume in 2016, of the polyethylene wax market. It is produced by the high-pressure polymerization of ethylene. HDPE and LDPE are obtained through this process. These waxes are generally used as a lubricant for PVC processing, a modifier in hot-melt adhesives, and as an additive in the water-based emulsion to improve slip, rub, and scratch resistance.
Based on type, the oxidized segment of the polyethylene wax market is projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.
The oxidized segment of the polyethylene wax market is projected to register the highest growth, in terms of volume, during the forecast period. The growth of this segment 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.
Based on application, plastic processing is projected to be the largest segment of the market during the forecast period.
Plastic processing is expected to lead the polyethylene wax market during the forecast period. In plastic processing, polyethylene wax is used as a lubricant in PVC processing and as a dispersing agent for color masterbatch. It is used to influence different chemical properties, such as viscosity, temperature, gloss, and fusion speed. Plastic processing includes processing of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Polyethylene (PE), and Polypropylene (PP) pipes. Building & construction is the major application of these pipes, which is witnessing high growth in emerging countries of APAC. Various government initiatives and policies are also boosting the building & construction sector. These factors are contributing to the growth of the plastic processing application segment, globally.
