According to our Researcher latest study, the global Fischer-Tropsch (FT) Waxes market size was valued at USD 784.4 million in 2023 and is forecast to a readjusted size of USD 1189.2 million by 2030 with a CAGR of 6.1% during review period.

Fischer-Tropsch wax is a byproduct wax generated in the production of liquid fuels and other products from coal and natural gas. It is synthesized from carbon monoxide and hydrogen as shown below.
(2n+1)H2 + nCO → CnH2n+2 + nH2O
Iron-based and cobalt-based metal catalysts are known for practical purposes. As iron-based catalysts are active in the CO shift reaction and cobalt-based catalysts do not have this activity, iron-based catalysts are generally used for coal-based synthetic gas with a small H2/CO ratio, while cobalt-based catalysts are used for natural gas-based synthetic gas with a large H2/CO ratio. Cobalt-based catalysts have higher hydrogen activity and longer lifetime than iron-based catalysts, and the products are often rich in paraffin content.
