With the stabilization of global oil prices by 2020-2021, advances in the manufacture of synthetic wax and the increased use of wax in corrugated packaging, it is estimated that industrial wax would depict slightly higher growth rates during the long term forecast. Candles, the largest application for industrial wax market The candles application is estimated to be the largest application for the industrial wax market. Industrial wax is preferred for making candles due to its properties such as moldability and extrudability. These properties of industrial wax enable the production of candles in all types of shapes and sizes. This application is growing due to the increasing demand for fragrant candle products, decorative items and the use of candles for religious and therapeutic purposes. Fossil based waxes, the leading type in industrial wax market Fossil based waxes accounted for the largest share of the global industrial wax market. Fossil based waxes include mineral wax and petroleum wax, which are largely used for coating commercial products. Waxes such as ozokerite, paraffin, microcrystalline wax, ceresin, and petrolatum, are extensively used in the cosmetics industry, as they are considered extensively safe and are derived from the various processes of crude oil refining. Petroleum waxes have high gloss characteristics, which makes them suitable ingredients for polishes, predominantly for the "paste" type commonly used on floors, furniture, cars, and footwear.
