Fischer-Tropsch (FT) Wax Market Size, Share, Industry Growth, Trend, Business Opportunities, Challenges, Drivers and Restraint Research Report by 2028

The fischer-tropsch (FT) wax industry is expected to witness momentous growth in the ensuing years, thanks to its growing penetration in a myriad range of industries, spanning from plastics to synthetic rubber. Owing to its good compatibility with PVC, this wax is employed as a good internal lubricant for effectively controlling shear conditions, promoting flow, limiting friction, and melting properties, subsequently improving thermal stability. It is also widely used for improving abrasion & scratch resistance and matting in the printing inks and varnishes sector.

Fischer-tropsch wax is a byproduct of wax that is generated in the manufacturing of liquid fuels and other products from natural gas and coal. It is highly favored in the textile & paper sectors and as a mold release agent in plastic processing activities. The growth of the FT wax market can also be ascribed to the rising need for petroleum jelly applications. These waxes are rich in saturated straight-chain hydrocarbons and offer a lower oil content, narrower carbon number distribution, greater hardness, and higher melting point.

Here are a few important applications that will significantly influence the development of this industry space.

Increasing penetration in paints & coatings

On account of their high melting point as well as low viscosity and hardness at high temperatures, the demand for high-melt FT waxes is expected to significantly grow to ensure superior performance in the paints & coatings sector. As it is saturated with straight alkanes, it does not contain double bonds. It, therefore, offers good weather resistance and strong anti-oxidation ability. The fischer-tropsch wax industry will also be influenced by rising adoption as a processing aid for powder coatings as well as scratch proofing and matting agents.

Potential in the plastic industry

FT wax is increasingly employed in the coloring and production of modified plastics, as it contributes to excellent smoothness in the mixture and dispersion of the filler. It can also be applied to plastic processing, mainly in injection molding, extrusion and pelletizing. In fact, melted Fischer Tropsch wax can effectively wet the dyes while reducing the extrusion viscosity. In the process of creating color masterbatch and modified plastics, the wax also helps with the dispersion and excellent smoothness of the fillers.

Rising utilization in synthetic rubbers

The FT wax market is expected to expand owing to rising adoption as an antioxidant and toughening agent in the rubber industry. This product is mainly an n-alkane, that is required to be properly isomerized when employed as raw material for rubber protective waxes.  Apart from aiding dispersion and processing, these waxes are responsible for the glossy surfaces of some rubber products.

Growing incorporation in printing inks

Fischer Tropsch wax is increasingly used in the ink industry as it mainly provides the effect of anti-scuffing, reduced viscosity and control gloss. The rising need for high-melt waxes that offer a unique combination of low viscosity, high melting point, and hardness, and ensuring superior performance will further influence the product application scope.
