Wax is a class of organic compound that is malleable at ambient temperature, and upon melting turns into a low viscosity fluid. The chemical nature of wax is complex; however normal alkanes with a wide range of molecular weight contribute to the composition to a large extent. Wax offers resistance to air and water. This opens up applications in various industries such as packaging, cosmetics, and adhesive. Rising base of end-user industries is likely to drive the global wax market during the forecast period. However, shortfall in the supply of wax is anticipated to hamper market growth.
