Global linear alpha olefins market is projected to cross $ 21 billion by 2024, growing at a steady rate. These olefins are industrially important alkenes with the chemical formula CXH2X and are generally manufactured through oligomerization of ethylene or through Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. Markedly, linear alpha olefins are used as co-monomers in the production of plastics including polyethylene and polypropylene. Among the linear alpha-olefins,1-hexene demonstrates unique properties, and is used in several applications, including its use as a co-monomer during the manufacturing of polyethylene, production of aldehydes and fatty acids for plasticizers. While, volatility in the prices of raw materials coupled with strict environmental regulations are expected to pose a challenge for the growth of the market.

 

The market for linear alpha-olefins has been segmented into type, application, end-use industry and region. Based on type, the market has been segmented as 1-butene, 1-hexene, 1-octene, 1-decene, 1-dodecene, others. Among these, 1-Hexene holds a significant market share in global linear alpha olefins market as poly-alpha-olefins finds use in automotive engines as synthetic lubricant and as polyethylene in packaging industry. Based on application, the market has been segmented as detergent alcohols, alkylbenzenes (linear & branched), polybutylene, oilfield chemicals, synthetic lubricant, low-density polyethylene (LDPE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) and others. LLDP is witnessing growing demand from numerous industries, as it is used as packaging material.


Regionally, the market for linear alpha-olefins has been segmented as North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa. Markedly, North America is the leading demand generator of linear alpha-olefins. Europe also accounts for a substantial proportion of the global consumption of linear alpha-olefins. Additionally, high demand from end-use industries such as packaging, automotive, pharmaceuticals and chemical industries is expected to fuel linear alpha-olefins market in Asia-Pacific.

Some of the key players operating in global linear alpha olefins market include, Royal Dutch Shell Plc., Sasol Limited, Qatar Chemical Company Ltd (Q-Chem), Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, The Dow Chemical Company, Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd, The Linde Group, Exxon Mobil Corporation, INEOS Oligomers, among others. Players operating in the market are using strategies such as mergers and collaboration and product development to register growth in the market.
