Polyolefin Wax Market: Introduction
Polyolefin wax is a type of synthetic wax or homopolymer wax, which is produced from simple olefin as a monomer. Polyolefin wax is manufacturing by the various types or process such as polymerizing, thermal degradation, and synthesis of monomers. Most of the polyolefin wax is made up at large industrial scale through polymerization by using of catalyst. For example, Ziegler-Natta catalyst is used in the polymerization process of ethylene to polyethylene. The most common types of polyolefin waxes are: polyethylene wax, polypropylene wax, polyamides, among others. Polyolefin wax properties are ranged from liquid to solid, and it will be primarily defined by the degree of crystallinity and molecular weight. The polyolefin wax defines from range 0 to 60 as a liquid to rigid plastic respectively. Polyolefin wax surfaces are not joint effectively by solvent welding because they are not affected by common solvent and have an admirable resistivity across the chemicals. In addition, in terms of chemical properties of polyolefin wax, it has excellent lubricant rate, color, and thermal stability.
Moreover, the polyolefin wax is used as releasing agent, lubricating agent, dispersant, among others across the various end-use including paints and coatings, printing inks, lubricants, adhesives and sealants, packaging, and rubber & plastic processing among many others.
Polyolefin Wax Market: Dynamics
The global polyolefin wax is projected to register significant growth over the coming years owing to the growing demand of polyolefin wax across the various end-use industry including paints and coating, plastic processing, printing inks among many others. Paints and Coating industry is one of the most appealing industry across the globe to maintain and rising the consumption for polyolefin wax over the course of the forecast period. Rising demand for plastics and adhesives & sealants are also contributing to the growth of polyolefin wax across the globe during the forecast period. Use of general consumable items as growing use of candles for decoration, and presenting innovative gifts are the center of attraction of candles, in turn, the polyolefin wax market is expected to register significant growth during the forecast period.
However, the polyolefin wax is produced by refining crude oils, and it will be over-dependent on petrochemical feedstock. And, volatility in prices of refinery feedstock will be resulting in fluctuating prices of polyolefin wax. Such factor is anticipated to act as a restrain for global polyolefin wax market during the forecast period.
