Increasing application of Fischer-Tropsch wax for improving functionality of processing agents for modified plastic products will support the FT wax market development for coming years. FT resins contributes to the dispersion and excellent smoothness of fillers in the production of modified plastics and color masterbatch. It can also be used as an external lubricant for Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC). Low viscosity can improve the production speed of the product and also helps to disperse pigments and fillers in mixing, especially in extrusion of high viscosity system.

Additionally, Fischer-Tropsch wax is also used in rubber extrusion to improve processing and extrusion properties of rubber. It also works as internal lubricant to reduce friction and also improves overall hardness of the final product. Increasing demand for synthetic rubber from automotive industry for car tire and other sectors including footwear, foam etc. will promulgate the FT wax market size as it is being extensively used for carrying out extrusion process in synthetic rubber industry.

Significant decrease in fuel supplies in North America has instigated the demand for FT wax industry

North America FT wax Market Size

North America FT wax market is anticipated to cross USD 250 million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of around 6%. Further, downward trend in blender and refinery production from the U.S., along with increasing importance of trade, has further propelled the demand for synthetically derived fuels. Shortage in hard and medium compounds with high viscosity has resulted in increased product demand from processing industry for formulating inks, adhesives, and PVC lubrication.

Positive application outlook of FT extracted fuels across processing industry coupled with declining production of waxes derived from petroleum and mineral source will further support the FT wax market expansion across this region. Resin production in North America is anticipated to grow at over 6.5% CAGR through 2028. This will further fuel the market growth across this region owing to application of FT compounds in formulating adhesive resins.

Increasing investments in R&D and product innovations by industry participants to accelerate market competitiveness

Key players in the FT wax market are Sasol, Shell, Deurex AG, Evonik Industries AG, Nippon Seiro Co. Ltd., Nanyang Saier, KPL International Limited, King Honor International, Brenntag, Yi Mei New Material Tech. Co. Ltd., Ter Hell and Co. Gmbh, Michel man, Industrial Raw Materials LLC and Globalwax LLC.

The companies are engaged in extensive research & development to develop innovative products to improve the quality & quantity of poultry meat yield. For instance, In February 2018, Sasol announced that it has completed its USD 900 million FT products capacity expansion project in South Africa. This expansion project has helped the company to pipeline its strategy as leading supplier of Fischer-Tropsch derived products globally. With this project completion, South Africa is now one of the leading countries of wax production globally.

In 2021, Sasol successfully completed the Lake Charles Chemicals Project. That will contribute to reap the benefits of their LyondellBasell joint venture partnership in coming future. This allows them to enrich in terms of research and development of new and innovative products.

In June, 2021, Evonik boosts its system solutions portfolio with the acquisition of the cosmetic delivery company Infinitec Activos which assists them in strengthening their technological and strategic fit, supporting the portfolio shift of Evonik’s life science division Nutrition & Care towards system solutions.
