Global Wax Market summary

Wax is made from oil or fat that melts easily and can be used for manufacturing polish and candles. Wax is a lipid, which is an ester of long-chain of fatty acid and alcohol. Natural wax contains unsaturated bonds and various functional groups such as primary and secondary alcohols, fatty acids, aldehydes, ketones, and fatty acid esters. It is synthesized by many animals and plants. Plant origin is mixture of unesterified hydrocarbons, which dominate over esters. Animal origin consists of ester made from various carboxylic alcohols and fatty acids. The composition depends on geographic location of organisms and species.

The outbreak of COVID-19 led to the deployment of stringent lockdown, which in turn, decreased production of chemical, cosmetics, rubbers, candles, packaging, and adhesives. This led to negative impact on the market. However, the relaxations in restrictions is expected to fuel the market growth.
