  • Published On : Apr 04, 2019

Persistence Market Research delivers key insights on the global micronized wax market, in its latest report titled, 'Micronized wax Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013–2017 and Forecast 2018–2028'. The global demand for micronized wax is expected to remain strong, with a CAGR of 4.0% over 2018-2028.

According to the National Candle Association (NCA), the United States represents a massive demand for candles, including candle accessories by U.S households. Growing population and consumers’ class in emerging as well as developing economies will support the demand of waxes/hydrocarbons.

Further, the main increase in consumption will come from the transportation sectors in developing countries. This increased demand for hydrocarbons is led by changing lifestyles, globalization, and industrialization, worldwide. As a result, the global micronized wax market is estimated to experience significant growth over the forecast period.

Furthermore, the growing transportation and trade of packaged foods will create significant growth opportunities for the packaging industry during the forecast period. Hard paraffin and micronized wax mixtures with plastics and resins are used for coatings, contact adhesives, and impregnations used in packaging to ensure the extensive life of fruits/foods.

Micronized wax protects fruits and food grains from moisture, thereby keeping them fresh and safe for a longer duration. Thus, the demand for micronized wax is expected to increase due to the growing demand from the food packaging industry in the coming years.
