    DESCRIPTION

    Global supplies of microcrystalline wax and petrolatum continue to shrink due to the reduction in API Group I, specifically brightstock production capacity. On the other hand, demand for microcrystalline wax and petrolatum continues to be strong in specialty applications, where these waxes are preferred for their specific characteristics despite their higher prices. Reducing availability of these waxes and their rising prices have motivated wax de-oilers, blenders, specialty wax producers, and other market participants to seek synthetic and vegetable- derived alternatives. The interplay of supply and demand drivers and the penetration of alternate materials will set the direction of this market.
