Based on raw material, paraffin wax dominates the global candle market share

Paraffin wax, also known as straight wax, is the most commonly used material as it does not contain additives and is colourless and odourless. It is reasonably priced and used to create a range of candles, including pillars, containers, votives, tealights, tapers, and tarts.

 

Meanwhile, the addition of stearin offers several advantages including hardening of wax, giving candles a durable exterior casing that improves the rigidity of candles, and also prevents them from slumping.

 

Furthermore, due to increase in concerns regarding pollution and sustainability, beeswax candles are emerging as a suitable option for producing natural, non-toxic, homemade candles. Customers who seek eco-friendly products are demanding candles that are cruelty-free and created from sustainable sources like beeswax.

 

Based on product type, cartridge candles account for a significant share of the global candle market

Cartridge candles have been extensively used for security and emergencies as they are cost-effective, available in various sizes, heights, and colours, and provide lighting for up to 90 hours.

 

However, there has been a growing availability of diverse types of candles including birthday candles. Birthday candles range from sparklers and glitter-dipped styles to colourful ombré candles, which has increased their use to elevate cakes, brownies, pancakes, and doughnuts, among others.

 

Further, wax-filled container candles are safe to use, convenient, and easy to relocate, further eliminating the issue of wax dripping.

Luxury candles have become one of the most well-liked home gifting items in North America; they are seen as suitable gifting options for important occasions like weddings, birthdays, and Christmas, for scent appeal and home décor purposes.

 

In 2022, about EUR 2,331 million worth of candles were imported by the EU members, representing an increase of 32% from 2021. European customers have been incorporating spa and yoga routines into their lifestyles to improve mental and spiritual wellness.

Further, demand for traditional Japanese candles has been increasing, as these candles utilise wax from Japanese wax trees and lacquer trees which makes them organic with a unique ability to gently illuminate Buddhist statues in a way that Western candles cannot. The candles are made using a unique traditional "tegake" technique that involves repeatedly applying wax around the candlewick with bare hands.
