Microcrystalline Wax Market Overview:

Chemically, microcrystalline waxes are inert. Micros have a larger iso-paraffinic hydrocarbon to naphthenic hydrocarbon ratio than paraffin waxes do. Microcrystalline waxes’ large proportion of branching, iso-paraffins is what gives them their flexibility and stickiness. In contrast to paraffins, the waxes have a microscopic, crystalline structure, and these tiny crystals give them more flexibility. Crystalline structure and size, molecular weight, and the iso-paraffin/normal paraffin ratio are three factors that significantly differentiate micros. All micros are flavorless and odorless.

Like paraffin waxes, microcrystalline waxes are soluble in a wide range of fixed and volatile oils as well as chloroform, ether, benzene, carbon disulfide, and other organic solvents. Micro waxes barely marginally dissolve in 100% alcohol and don’t dissolve at all in water or alcohol. Microcrystalline waxes are exceedingly flexible yet quite strong. As a result, they have great tensile strength and are extremely ductile and bendable, even at low temperatures. Because of their high levels of cohesion, micros have sticky capabilities and are resistant to both water & water vapor. Excellent for coating, laminating, or hardening materials are microcrystalline waxes. Their ability to transition from solid to liquid across a constrained temperature range, low viscosity as a liquid just above their melting point, opalescence in thin layers, and electrical characteristics are further advantageous characteristics.

Market Growth Dynamics

Micro waxes can be used for the base of chewing gum, cosmetics, ointments where they harden, lubricate, and protect against moisture, food packaging, increasing the fluidity and flexible bonding of hot-melt adhesives, crayons, candles, and insulating materials. They can also be used to protect against moisture through wax-impregnated paper, film, foil, and corrugated board.

Microcrystalline wax has become primarily used in several significant sectors, including the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Additionally, production facilities for rubber, adhesives, castings, and corrugated boards have become significant users. Therefore, it is anticipated that in the upcoming years, the total amount of revenue in the global microcrystalline wax market would reach new heights. Microcrystalline wax is used in a variety of sectors due to its reshapable and moldable nature. The use of microcrystalline wax to create beautiful jewelry and decorative products has further fueled industry expansion. Microcrystalline wax is used to paint and polish wood, ivory, and jewels in museums and old structures. Microcrystalline wax has a wide range of industrial applications.

Microcrystalline Wax Market: COVID-19 Impact Analysis

In 2020, COVID-19 had a detrimental effect on the market for microcrystalline wax worldwide. Microcrystalline wax is used in coatings, paints, and adhesives in addition to being a lubricating polymer ingredient. Due to the lockdown caused by the pandemic scenario, construction activities were halted, which decreased the need for microcrystalline wax, which is used in products like adhesives and others in the construction business. During the market analysis, this hurt the market. However, the demand for microcrystalline wax, which is used in paper packaging, has increased significantly in the food and e-commerce sectors. As an antifoaming component, microcrystalline wax is also used in soaps and other personal care products. The market demand for microcrystalline wax is significantly influenced by the market demand for soaps and other personal care products due to the rising awareness of personal cleanliness. For instance, in June 2020, global retail e-commerce traffic reached a record 22 billion visits per month, with demand being particularly high for items that are needed on a daily basis, such as groceries, apparel, and retail electronics products. As a result, these facts contributed to the market’s expansion during the COVID-19 era.
