The global Polyethylene Wax Market is growing at a rapid pace. The market growth attributes to the increasing consumption of PE wax, mainly in the automotive and packaging industries. Polyethylene (PE) waxes deliver some unique properties such as thermal stability, biocompatibility, and durability to products. Resultantly, PE waxes are used in various applications such as plastic processing, hot melt adhesives, inks, and coatings, which drive the market growth excellently.
Polyethylene Wax Market Competitive Analysis
Highly competitive, the polyethylene wax market appears fragmented due to the presence of several large and small players. To gain a larger competitive share, industry players incorporate strategic initiatives such as mergers acquisitions, collaborations, expansion, and product/technology launch. Strategic alliances between these players support the growth and expansion plans of these players.
Players leading the polyethylene wax market include Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. (Japan), Clariant (Switzerland), Honeywell International Inc. (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), SCG (Thailand), TRECORA RESOURCES (U.S.), The Lubrizol Corporation (U.S.), Westlake Chemical Corporation (U.S.), Innospec (U.S.), and EUROCERAS (Poland), among others.
Moreover, the prominence that PE waxes are garnering as a key material used in the coating and adhesive sector fosters the growth of the market. According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global polyethylene wax market is expected to create substantial revenues by 2023, growing at an impressive CAGR during the review period (2022 2027). Moreover, the increasing consumption of oxidized polyethylene wax in paint coating sectors influence the market growth further.
Also, the massive consumption of PE waxes in the food packaging, and textile sector impacts the market growth positively.
