Polyethylene Wax Market Synopsis


Polyethylene wax is an ultra low molecular weight polyethylene composed of ethylene monomer chains. It is also called as PE wax. The three types of the compound are high-density polyethylene (HDPE) wax, low-density polyethylene (LDPE) wax and oxidized polyethylene wax. Moreover, its thermal stability, bio-compatible, durability, and superior performance are the important trends and factors influencing the market confidently. Therefore, they are used in various applications such as plastic processing, hot melt adhesive, ink & coating, and others.


Among the various segments in Polyethylene Wax Market, oxidized polyethylene wax sub-segment is the leading type used in the market and is anticipated to continue its dominance over the assessment period. It is extensively used in the end-use industries as a slip agent, resin modifier, mold release agent, and others. Moreover, its growing consumption in paints & coatings, and others are set to drive the market in the next couple of years. It is projected that the modification segment is set to grow at a significant rate owing to its boundless use in food packaging, textiles, and adhesives. Polymerization sub-segment is the leading process utilized in the market owing to the endless production of high density and low-density waxes. The Polyethylene Wax Market by application is segregated into plastic processing, hot melt adhesive, ink & coating, and others. The ink & coating segment holds a major portion of the market due to increasing popularity of the product in packaging, corrugated, publication, and others. Moreover, the increasing demand for biocompatible, efficient organic compound in plastic processing, hot melt adhesive, and other sectors are projected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Recent Development

June 2021- Braskem, a Brazilian petrochemical company headquartered in São Paulo, has announced the world’s first renewably-sourced polyethylene (PE) wax. The product used in manufacturing coatings, cosmetics, adhesives, and several compounds is usually used as a viscosity adjusting agent in different formulations.
The latest polyethylene wax has similar characteristics and offers the same performance as the one prepared from fossil-based PE. Obtained from sugarcane ethanol, the latest solution causes a lower CO2 footprint, has applications in numerous market areas and is recyclable.

October 2020 – a private investment company devoted to the specialty materials, chemicals and pharmaceuticals sectors, an affiliate of SK Capital Partners, LP, has finished its earlier disclosed acquisition of the Baker Hughes’s specialty polymers business. Post the acquisition, the business has been rebranded as NuCera Solutions, indicating the company’s past of innovation in the polyethylene wax and specialty polymers markets.
NuCera, with productions in Barnsdall, Oklahoma, is well-known to produce specialty low molecular weight olefin polymers, such as a variety of distinguished functional polymers and finest, high melting point polyethylene waxes. With a history of 85 years, the business is devoted to innovation and has managed to build a solid reputation as a supreme specialty provider and solutions supplier to its vast customer base.
