Global Slack Wax Market: HollyFrontier Corporation acquires Sonneborn US Holdings Inc.


Published on : Nov 15, 2019

Albany, New York, November 15, 2019: Slack wax is used in production of paraffin wax as a key ingredient. It has high oil content of about 5% to 3.5% as it is made from lubricating oils. It is used as raw material in manufacture of variety of products including personal care products such as baby creams, fragrances, sunscreen and lipsticks along with cosmetic products.

Paraffin wax consumes slack wax to a great extent and is expected to dominate the market for the forecast period. Increase in paraffin wax demand for multiple applications including candle making, wood impregnation products and anti-caking agent, drives the global slack wax market.

 Although consumption is high, the global market is facing challenges in form of stringent government regulations. Strict regulations on emission of various gases including carbon dioxide, Sulphur and carbon monoxide compel manufacturers and industry heads to use better technologies in group II and group III base oils production to get cleaner products. Such strategies have declined group I base oil’s production which is a major source of slack wax. Declining preference of group I oil has negative impact on global slack wax market. Increase in focus towards other viable alternatives like synthetic paraffin wax and natural wax hinder the growth of global market.

Global slack wax market is expected at a   ?2% CAGR for the forecast period 2019-2027. The major global market share was owned by light grade of slack wax in the year 2018.
