The shift from conventional petroleum wax-based products to synthetic and vegetable waxes is becoming intense.
Non-conventional waxes, particularly Fischer-Tropsch’s and hydrogenated vegetable, are increasingly becoming the
focus for growth in the wax business. Interestingly, the wax landscape is also changing on the end-use side. Demand for
conventional mainstream wax applications, such as candles, has slowed down. Relatively newer rheology and surface
applications are the fastest-growing applications. The ability of new and growing applications to adapt to non-petroleum
wax types will now set the stage for future wax supply and demand balance.
