Linear Alpha-Olefins Market To Increase at Steady Growth Rate

LinearAlpha olefins are unsaturated hydrocarbonswhich are used to manufacture products like synthetic acids, synthetic lubricants, polymers (LLDPE, HPDE), oilfield chemicals, detergent intermediates and additives. Linear Alpha Olefins are industrially important alkenes with the chemical formula CXH2X. These are unbranched alkenes in which the first carbon atom of the chain has a double bond. The double bond between the first and second carbon of the chain determines the alkene’s chemical properties and makes it useful for a number of applications such as all reactions of an olefin which include polymerization, addition metathesis, etc. Linear Alpha Olefins are manufactured mostly through oligomerisation of ethylene or through Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. This is followed by purification of Linear Alpha Olefins.

Linear Alpha olefins are extremely versatile and have applications in the manufacturing of a number of important chemical products such as alkenyl succinic anhydrides, drag reducing agents, Poly Alpha Olefins, lubricants, oilfield chemicals, Alkylbenzenes, fuel additives, plasticizers, detergent alcohols, low density polyethylene (LDPE)and High density polyethylene (HDPE). Linear Alpha Olefins are used as co-monomers in the production of plastics such as polyethylene and polypropylene. Among Linear Alpha-Olefins,1-Hexene has unique properties and is used in various applications. For example, it is used as a co-monomer during the manufacturing of polyethylene, production of aldehydes and fatty acids for plasticizers.

Linear Alpha-Olefins Market:Market Dynamics

On the basis of value and volume, 1-Hexene holds a major market share of the overall Linear alpha olefins market. Growing demand for Poly-Alpha-Olefins which is used in synthetic lubricants used in automobile engines and increased demand for polyethylene which is used in the packaging industry will continue to drive the linear alpha-olefins market during the forecast period. Increasing demand from various industries for LLDPE, which is used as packaging material, is also contributing towards the growth of the Linear-Alpha Olefins market. Easy availability of raw materials for alpha olefin production is also projected to increase the market growth of Linear Alpha-Olefins. The growth of automotive and consumer goods industry and positive outlook on oilfield drilling activities is expected to affect the Linear-Alpha Olefins demand positively.

Volatility in the prices of raw materials coupled with stringent environmental regulations is expected to remain a key challenge for market players. Other than this, relatively high initial investments may also affect the market negatively. The presence of alternatives such astungsten disulphide and advancement in nanoparticle-based lubricants are the key restraints for the market growth of Linear Alpha-Olefins.

Though bio-based Linear Alpha-Olefins are in research and development phase, they are likely to gain momentum in near future, which can be an upcoming opportunity for the manufacturers.
