Global carnauba wax market segmentation by application and product type

Technavio’s report on the global carnauba wax market analyses the business dimensions and presents a comprehensive breakdown in terms of market segmentation by application, including cosmetics, confectionery products, automotive, and pharmaceuticals. The cosmetics segment is the largest application segment for carnauba wax. The increase in cosmetic product exports is resulting in the large-scale consumption of carnauba wax.

Based on product type, the global carnauba wax market has been segmented into type 3, type 1 carnauba wax, and type 4 carnauba wax. The global carnauba wax market is majorly driven by the type 3 segment. It accounted for more than 39.25% of the global market in 2016. The major reason for its large share is the growing demand for type 3 carnauba wax for various applications.

“Type 3 carnauba wax is dark yellow or brown in color. It exhibits superior hardness and is non-tacky and lustrous. It is largely used in cosmetics such as in the formulation and preparation of creams, lipsticks, haircare products, and mascara. It is used for polishing purposes in the automotive, textile, and leather industries. Its cost-effectiveness and a wide range of applications have led to its increased consumption,” says Mohd Shakeel Iqbal, a lead analyst at Technavio for bio-chemicals and bio-materials research.
