Drivers & Restraints-

Increasing Demand from PackagingIndustry to Propel Growth

The emergence of end use industries,such as rubber, plastic, cosmetics, packaging, and candles is surging in the
developing regions, namely, Latin America, Africa, and Asia Pacific. But the
growth is low in the developed regions, such as Europe and North America.
Hence, the ongoing industrialization is anticipated to create more
opportunities for such end use industries in the countries situated in these
regions. The demand for paraffin wax is high as it is used the most in
corrugated packaging.

This type of packaging is speciallyused to pack furniture, food, and similar other goods. The expansion of
packaging sector in the developing regions worldwide would contribute to the
wax market growth in the coming years. However, animal and plant-based wax
involves high manufacturing cost. It may hamper growth.

these, the petroleum segment held 63.5% wax market share in 2019 and would grow
considerably throughout the forecast period. Petroleum products mainly consist
of micro-crystalline type, petrolatum, and paraffin. Paraffin is the most
commonly used product worldwide.
