Global Polyethylene Wax Market: Definition and Introduction

Waxes are a solid material that melts and converts into a liquid state at a slightly higher temperature. Basically, waxes are divided into two type i.e. natural waxes and synthetic waxes. Synthetic waxes have numerous types, polyethylene wax is one of them. Polyethylene (PE) wax is also identified as polyethylene homopolymer wax. In term of chemical properties, polyethylene wax has excellent color, lubrication rate, and thermal stability. These properties of the polyethylene wax are dependent on the production process of polyethylene wax. It has been manufactured by three major processes such as polymerization, thermal degradation, and synthesis from monomer. Primary applications of polyethylene wax are as a releasing agent, shining agent, lubricant, dispersant, binding agent, among others. Ease of modification and superior physiochemical properties of polyethylene wax leads to a wide range of applications in end-user industries such as rubber, chemical industry.

Global Polyethylene Wax Market Dynamics

Global developments in the past couple of years have highlighted the key trends in the industrial sector, which impact on global polyethylene market. World’s leading economies are growing due to impressive contribution from the industries such as the electronics industry, packaging industry, crude oil industry, plastic and rubber industry, e-commerce and many more. Application of polyethylene wax remains indispensable in these industries due to which its supply and production will rise rapidly in the next ten years. Rapidly growing expansion of middle-class worldwide has invited many unique trends which previously were limited to a specific population. There is a surge of trends like home décor, presenting innovative gifts, celebrations, and tourism. Use of candles has become a center of attraction for these applications. In turn, the global polyethylene wax market is estimated to be the lucrative market by the end of forecast period.

Rising demand for plastic and rubber industry as well as paints & coatings has been contributing to the significant growth of the polyethylene wax market. This has been proving to be an important driver, especially in the developed economies such as North America and Western European regions. Besides, increased global wax market has been demanding polyethylene wax as a modifier to improve the melting point, as a result, is expected to be a microeconomic factor for polyethylene wax market throughout the forecast period.
