Wax Market Dynamics:

Consistent rise in candle manufacturing, together with product advancements:

Traditionally, candles were primarily used as a source of light; however, they play an important role in festival celebrations, home décor, and handicrafts. Because of their religious beliefs, lifestyles, and living patterns, many European and North American cultures use candles daily and even at festival events. Customers are enthralled by the advancements in candle products, such as product shape, style, color, and scent. The conventional candle industry has evolved into an advanced, inventive, and brand-conscious enterprise as a result of changing consumer behavior and the growing popularity of candles-based craft materials and related décor and interior design. As per the Eurostat, approximately 857 kilotons of candles were manufactured in the EU-28 countries in 2019, while candle imports increased by 3.7%. The United States and nine European countries accounted for 18.5% and 48.5% of total candle imports, in the top ten importers. China and Poland, on the other hand, accounted for 28.2 percent and 29.2% of total exports. As a result of the constant growth of the candle segment, the wax demand is expected to grow steadily over the forecast period.

Reducing the use of Paraffin wax in packaging:

In North America and Europe, wax is in high demand for packaging purposes. The demand for packaging, on the other hand, is dropping. The health risks of paraffin wax used in food packaging are now a major concern for the food packaging industry. Natural waxes are thus becoming more widely used in the food packaging business in North America and Europe. Also, regulatory agencies such as the FDA and the European Union have imposed limitations on the usage of paraffin waxes. The burgeoning meat packaging sector might also be blamed for the surging need for natural waxes.

In the cosmetics sector, the need for bio-based products is growing:

People in industrialized countries have altered their preferences from synthetic to green or bio-based items as their health and wellbeing concerns have grown. As a result of these developments, several cosmetics and personal care product producers have begun to develop bio-based products. As a result, bio-based waxes such as carnauba wax, beeswax, and candelilla wax, among others, are replacing synthetic and paraffin wax in cosmetic and personal care product manufacturing providing growth opportunities for the market.

The market's reaction to the US-China trade conflict:

The US government slapped anti-dumping duties on Chinese candle products to help the domestic paraffin wax and candle industry. The United States government has imposed an anti-dumping tariff of 108.3% on Chinese candle products, regardless of their shape or size. This has a major impact on the wax business across the globe challenging the market growth.
