Wax is a class of organic compounds comprising long alkyl chains. Waxes are lipophilic, malleable solids near ambient temperatures. Higher alkanes and lipids with melting points above 40°C come under the category of wax. Waxes are insoluble in water but soluble in organic and nonpolar solvents. They are extracted from plants and animals and occur in petroleum. Natural wax may contain unsaturated bonds while synthetic wax constitutes homogenous series of long-chain aliphatic hydrocarbons that do not have any functional group.

The chemicals & materials and cosmetics industries, among others, faced unprecedented challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic due to disruptions in the global supply chains that adversely affected manufacturing, delivery schedules, and sales.

Moreover, a huge gap in supply and demand led to fluctuations in the prices of raw materials required for wax production. However, since 2021, the cosmetics and packaging industry has been reviving significantly.
