Sugarcane Wax Market

Sugarcane is one of the major cash crops, used for the production of sugar and ethanol. It is necessary to consider sugarcane wax when reviewing the phytochemical profile of saccharum officinarum due its widespread industrial application, and cosmetic and pharmaceutical interest. It is a potential substitute for expensive carnauba wax. The amount of wax in sugarcane ranges between 0.1 and 0.3%, depending upon its variety. Sugarcane wax is used as a commercial source of long-chain fatty alcohols, acids, esters, aldehydes, and ketones. Policosanols and D-003 along with some steroids and terpenoids have also been identified and isolated from sugarcane wax. Policosanols are a mixture of long chain primary aliphatic alcohols (1 - 8) ranging from 2.5 - 80%. Octacosanol constitutes 50 - 80% of the total policosanoles. The use of natural waxes, such sugarcane waxes, has increased in several industrial applications, including the lubrication of equipment, the polishing of metallic surfaces, the production of cosmetics, the production of food ingredients, and others. As a result, their demand has also increased. 

After the sugarcane juice has been clarified, it is extracted using a solvent extraction method from the press mud or filter cake mud. Sugarcane wax is complex and variable mixture of long chain alkenes, hydrocarbons, fatty acids, ketones, aldehydes, alcohols, esters, and steroids. Sugarcane wax is indigestible and harmless to health. It is a bright yellowish color in its polished form. Sugarcane wax has a high melting point of 75 to 80 °C, which makes it stable even when exposed to sunshine.

Fruits and vegetables were either dipped in the wax emulsions or sprayed with sugarcane wax. Sugarcane wax is a by-product created during the processing of sugarcane products and appears as a thin film on the outside of the cane stalk. It is frequently used in pharmaceuticals, the processing of fruits and vegetables, chocolate products, cosmetics, and materials for polishing. For vibrant anionic emulsions, sugarcane wax offers good oil and solvent retention. Sugarcane waxes are probably the most durable waxes. They contain 100% sugar cane and, therefore, are pure natural goods. The added value of sugarcane plants increases considerably. These factors will drive the sugarcane wax market growth during the forecast period. However, the presence of alternative such as synthetics wax, mineral wax, and other natural wax, may hamper the sugarcane wax market growth during the forecast period.  In addition, organic and natural cosmetics are expected to gain popularity during the forecast period, due to the rise in public awareness of the advantages of natural products. Sugarcane wax is expected to witness an increase in demand as a substitute for candelilla wax, carnauba wax, and chitosan in the edible coating of fruits and vegetables during the forecast period.

Rise in demand for sugarcane wax as a preservative in the processing of fruits and vegetables

Sugarcane wax is indigestible and harmless to health. Due to the high melting point of 75 to 80°C, it remains stable even if exposed to direct sunlight. Wax coating is used on cartons for frozen foods, butter, and margarine. Sugarcane wax offers properties such as a good oil and solvent retention for anionic bright emulsions. Emulsions made of sugarcane wax and other natural waxes were used to keep produce fresh or to give it a fresh appearance. The vegetables or fruits were immersed in the emulsions or sprayed with wax emulsions.

Sugarcane wax coatings are used to modify the internal atmosphere and to reduce water losses of fruits and vegetables. Coatings block the pores on the produce skin, reducing fruit water loss. Wax is commonly used in many fruits such citrus, tomato, bell pepper, and cucumber to improve fruit appearance and reduce transpiration; however, the effect of the wax on reducing fruit transpiration is limited (about 30% reduction). Presence of the wax coating and its composition reduces evaporation of water from the plant and helps protect it against pathogens. The physical properties of the coating and its permeability to moisture, oxygen, and carbon dioxide are important in realizing its beneficial effects. Edible coatings may contribute to extending the shelf life of fresh-cut produce by reducing moisture and solute migration, gas exchange, respiration and oxidative reaction rates, and by reducing or even suppressing physiological disorders. These factors are projected to drive the demand for sugarcane wax for preservation of fruits and vegetables.

Developments in cosmetics and personal care industry to boost sugarcane wax sales

Cosmetics and personal care is one of the major applications of sugarcane wax. Growing demand for sugarcane wax from cosmetics and personal care industry due to properties such as abrasion resistance, scratch resistance, corrosion resistance, hydrophobicity, matt look, and anti-blocking, this factor will drive the market growth during the forecast period. The usage of natural wax emulsions for organic materials in cosmetic products may also increase demand for the product during the anticipated time. Sugarcane wax is a natural ingredient that is used in cosmetic products such as potions and balms. It is used to thicken formulations. It provides stability to skincare products and cosmetics with emollient and protective qualities, and it boosts their viscosity and consistency. 

Furthermore, India is a growing economy and holds great potential for future market opportunities. The usage of cosmetic and personal care products is rising in the nation as a result of the growing emphasis on beauty, an aging‐¯population, and improved quality of life. Furthermore, the demand for personal care products is also anticipated to rise throughout the forecast period due to rising awareness, changing consumption patterns and lifestyles, rising disposable income, and improved purchasing power. Moreover, an increasing popularity of organic and natural cosmetics due to the growing awareness of the benefits of natural goods is likely to drive the sugarcane wax market growth during the forecast period.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON THE GLOBAL SUGARCANE WAX MARKET

Asia-Pacific is the largest region for sugarcane production in the world, with Brazil being the highest-producing country. In Latin America, sugarcane makes up 50% of the production area. In India, the entire value chain of the Indian sugar industry, viz., sugarcane, sugar, molasses, ethanol and their subsequent marketing and export, has been adversely affected by the spillover impacts. The potential impacts of COVID-19 in the Asia-Pacific are focused on the reduced output of sugar due to a shortage of inputs, reduced number of workers, and restrictions on travel. Furthermore, Due to COVID-19, the regulations and the deficient number of workers led to a decline in the production of various chemicals and other industries such as cosmetics, packaging, rubber, candle, and adhesives.
