DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Flexible Packaging Wax Paper Market: By Product Type; By Wax Type; By Packaging Type; By Application and by Geography - Forecast 2017-2021" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Wax paper is paper that has been made moisture-proof through the application of wax. The practice of oiling parchment or paper in order to make it semi-translucent or moisture-proof goes back at least to the middle ages.
Natural wax was largely replaced for the making of wax paper after being developed in ways of purifying paraffin and coating paper with it. Wax paper is commonly used in cooking for its non-stick properties, and wrapping food for storage, such as cookies, as it keeps water out or in. It is also used in arts and crafts.
Ozokerite or ozocerite, archaically referred to as earthwax or earth wax, is a naturally occurring odoriferous mineral wax or paraffin found in many localities. Mineral waxes like ozokerite are mined for at various sites around the globe. On distillation this type of mineral wax with steam, it results in the formation of commercially valuable wax, used for laminating paper packaging. Mining of minerals which produce wax has fallen and has been replaced by paraffins produced from petroleum.
The market is growing subsequently because of the increasing demand from food and beverages sector. Cartons and boxes are widely used for packaging fruits, vegetables and various beverages; this is one of the reasons for the growth of this industry. Waxed paper packaging products are hydrophobic in nature which prevents humidity, water and grease to come in contact with the packed goods. Waxed paper packaging products with their high gloss value and semitransparent nature gives food products a high quality image.
