"The polyethylene wax market is driven by the increasing demand from various applications, such as plastic processing, inks & coatings, and hot-melt adhesives"
The polyethylene wax market is estimated at USD 1.08 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 1.32 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2017 to 2022. The growth of the market is driven by the increasing demand for polyethylene wax as a lubricant in PVC processing and as a dispersing agent in masterbatch.
Modification process is the fastest-growing segment of the polyethylene wax market. Micronized and oxidized polyethylene waxes are obtained by this process, and the growth is backed by their major applications in different industries as they offer maximum rub and mar resistance, block resistance, and re-coat ability.
China is the largest and fastest-growing market for polyethylene wax in APAC as well as globally. It is projected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period due to the rapid industrialization, growing demand from various applications, and increasing government spending on industrial and infrastructural developments. Major key players are focused on inorganic growth strategies, such as mergers & acquisitions and partnership to enhance its footprint in China.
