Paraffin Wax Price Trend

North America

The demand for paraffin wax was restricted in the North American region due to the cosmetics sector, and prices of paraffin wax fell in the quarter ending in December 2022. The pricing patterns of the commodity were impacted by the volatility of crude oil prices in @4 and the decline in market activity for paraffin wax in the final quarter of 2022. The domestic offtakes in the downstream sector were affected negatively this quarter due to recessionary uncertainties on the US market and an abundance of supplies.

Asia Pacific

For the quarter ending in December 2022, the price of paraffin wax in the APAC area showed a general downward trend. The constancy in output caused by the subsequent reduced upstream cost pressure and lower crude oil prices ultimately resulted in a decline in the commodity's worth.

Also, this quarter's Paraffin wax market participation in the downstream Cosmetics sector of the Chinese market was reduced by the COVID lockout disruptions and interruptions in the shipping flow. However, the global economic downturn, the South Korean truck driver strike, and the high levels of domestic inventories all had a detrimental impact on international trade and transportation costs.


Due to a decrease in domestic offtakes, Europe Paraffin Wax prices saw lower values in the quarter ending in December 2022. This quarter, weak downstream demand across the regional market was a result of high crude oil prices, skyrocketing inflation, and a bleak economic outlook.

The Paraffin Wax market participants also continued to exercise caution due to the declining output in November and their concerns about the tighter economic conditions; nonetheless, they made offtakes at reduced margins out of worry for stock builds up near the end of the year. Market participants continued to worry about the economy's tightening and made sales at reduced profit margins out of concern for stockpiling towards the end of the year.
