    The wax industry faces a future of changing wax supply sources. The shift away from petroleum waxes towards synthetic and vegetable waxes, which started in the past decade, continues to gain momentum. Demand for conventional mainstream wax applications, such as candles, has slowed down. Relatively newer rheology and surface applications have stepped up as the fastest growing demand area. The ability of new and growing applications to adapt to non-petroleum wax types will now set the stage for future wax supply and demand balance. As a result of this market situation, it has become inevitable for wax producers and sellers to prepare and adapt their businesses to changes in wax supply and demand composition.
