In this paper, Bayes estimators of parameter of Maxwell distribution have been derived by considering non-informative as well as conjugate priors under different scale invariant loss functions, namely, Quadratic Loss Function, Squared-Log Error Loss Function and Modified Linear Exponential Loss Function. The risk functions of these estimators have been studied.
