Drivers and constraints-
Increasing demand from the packaging industry to drive growth
The emergence of end-use industries, such as rubber, plastics, cosmetics, packaging and candles, is booming in developing regions, namely Latin America, Africa and the ‘Asia Pacific. But growth is weak in developed regions, such as Europe and North America. Therefore, the ongoing industrialization is expected to create more opportunities for these end-use industries in the countries located in these regions. The demand for paraffin wax is high because it is used most in corrugated cardboard packaging. This type of packaging is specially used for packaging furniture, food and other similar products. The expansion of the packaging industry to developing regions all over the world would help the wax market to grow in the years to come. However, wax of animal and vegetable origin involves a high manufacturing cost. It can hinder growth.
