The global Carnauba Wax market size is expected to reach USD 398.09 million by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Carnauba Wax Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Form (Powder, Flakes, and Others); By Product (Type 1, Type 3, Type 4); By Application; By End-User; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2023 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The demand for carnauba wax is probably being driven by its growing use as a mola-releasing agent. Carnauba wax has become increasingly popular as a food emulsifier due to the growing working population and the demands of fast-paced lifestyles. There have been some technological advancements on the market, mostly in the area of wax extraction.

However, there haven't been any significant developments in wax manufacturing or processing methods. The corporations also value having access to a variety of raw materials and favorable laws from the Brazilian government. Very advantageous regulations for the use of wax as a glazing agent in edible products like candies, chocolates, and cosmetics supported the market expansion. As per the FDA regulation, the Brazilian wax palm Copernicia cerifera Martius' leaves and buds are used to produce carnauba wax (CAS Registration No. 008-015-869).

Additionally, as per the UEBT Organization, the Initiative for Responsible Carnauba (IRC), which was established in 2018, brings together Brazilian and international parties involved in the manufacturing of carnauba wax, as well as institutions from the public and private sectors. Together, these organizations support Brazilian wax producers' efforts to enhance workers' living and working conditions and protect biodiversity in Carnauba production zones. The IRC supports ongoing activities by the Brazilian Environment and Labor Ministries as well as other programs like the Sustainable Carnauba project, which is run by the Associaço Caatinga NGO. By encouraging engagement among foreign enterprises that purchase carnauba wax, the initiative aids the efforts of local businesses. Therefore, the rising government efforts as well as rising demand for the carnauba wax is boosting the market growth.
