Linear alpha olefins market witnessed growth of 5% CAGR from 2009 to 2016

May 16, 2017 - (Newswire)

- Linear alpha olefins are unbranched alkenes with a double bond at the first carbon atom of the chain.

The presence of this double bond increases the reactivity of the compound and makes it useful for a number of applications. Linear alpha olefins are used in the production of a number of products ranging from various polymers to synthetic lubricants. The global linear alpha olefins market has grown at a CAGR of around 5% during 2009-2016 mainly driven by the growing plastics industry which is a major end-user of linear alpha olefins.



The report has analyzed the global linear alpha olefins market on the basis of end-use:

· The applications of linear alpha olefins depend on their carbon chain length.

· 1-C4 to 1-C8 linear alpha olefins are used as co-monomers in the production of polyethylene.

· 1-C6¬ to 1-C10 linear alpha olefins are used as precursors for plasticizer alcohols.

· 1-C12 to 1-C14¬ linear alpha olefins are used in the production of detergents and synthetic lubricants.

· Other uses of linear alpha olefins are in the manufacturing of synthetic acids, pulp, paper, drilling applications, etc.

· The polyethylene industry currently represents the biggest and fastest growing consumer of linear alpha olefins accounting for the majority of the total global consumption.

· The polyethylene application is followed by detergents, lubricants and plasticizer alcohols.

The report has analyzed the global linear alpha olefins market on the basis of key regions:

· It finds that North America currently represents both the world's largest producer and consumer of linear alpha olefins.
