The global polyethylene wax market is growing at a rapid pace. The market growth attributes to the increasing consumption of PE wax, mainly in the automotive and packaging industries. Polyethylene (PE) waxes deliver some unique properties such as thermal stability, biocompatibility, and durability to products. Resultantly, PE waxes are used in various applications such as plastic processing, hot melt adhesives, inks, and coatings, which drive the market growth excellently.

Moreover, the prominence that PE waxes are garnering as a key material used in the coating and adhesive sector fosters the growth of the market. According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global polyethylene wax market is expected to create substantial revenues by 2023, growing at an impressive CAGR during the review period (2017 – 2023). Moreover, the increasing consumption of oxidized polyethylene wax in paint & coating sectors influence the market growth further.
