Chlorinated Paraffin Wax Market – Overview
Chlorinated paraffin wax is a group of synthetic organic chemical compounds consisting of n-alkanes with varying proportions of chlorine between 30% and 70% by weight. It is produced by the chlorination of natural alkanes. It is commercially available in the form of viscous oils.
Chlorinated paraffin wax possesses complex chemical structures that allow several positions for chlorine bond formation. Based on degree of chlorination, chlorinated paraffin wax can be divided into two classes: low chlorine content paraffin wax (less than 50% chlorination) and high chlorine content paraffin wax (more than 50% chlorination). However, commercially, they are classified as short-chain chlorinated paraffin wax (SCCP), medium-chain chlorinated paraffin wax (MCCP), and long-chain chlorinated paraffin wax according to length of the carbon chain.
The flame retardant property of chlorinated paraffin wax is one of the key factors for its extensive usage in various industries. Flame retardants play a vital role in numerous applications and industries such as plastics, textiles, paints, adhesives, and elastomers.
The global chlorinated paraffin wax market has been segmented based on application and region. Based on application, the global chlorinated paraffin wax market has been divided into lubricating additives, plastic additives, rubber, paints, metal working fluids, and others (including adhesive & sealants and fabrics). The metal working fluids segment dominated the global chlorinated paraffin wax market in 2018. The segment is anticipated to expand at a substantial pace by 2027. Chlorinated paraffin wax is employed extensively in several manufacturing sectors such as automotive and aerospace due to its extreme flame retardant properties, compatibility with oils, and other features. Growth in the manufacturing sector is projected to propel the segment during the forecast period.
Based on region, the global chlorinated paraffin wax market has been split into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is a leading consumer of chlorinated paraffin wax in the world. Asia Pacific dominated the global chlorinated paraffin wax market in 2018. The market in the region is likely to expand at a rapid pace, led by the growth in rubber, plastic, paints & coatings, and other manufacturing industries in China, India, and South Korea. Increase in need for metalworking fluids in countries such as China, Taiwan, Australia, India, and South Korea for machining, manufacturing, and cutting processes is anticipated to augment the market in the region in the near future.
