The cost of producing paraffin is directly impacted by variations in the price of oil on a worldwide scale. Price increases for crude oil will inevitably raise production costs, which will drive up the price of the product offered in the category. In addition, any fluctuation in the cost of labor, energy, technology or transportation will ultimately affect the production cost of paraffin, because manufacturers might be obligated to pass on cost increases to customers if any of these expenses increase, thus leading to higher prices. The price of paraffin wax in North America had been between USD 1.53 - USD 1.55 per kg, whereas, in Europe, the price had been between USD 1.86 - USD 1.89 per kg, in November 2023. Price of wax is influenced by the grade, and method & equipment used for refining and purification.
