Linear alpha olefins are petrochemicals which are unbranched alkenes with the chemical formula, CxH2x. They are produced majorly by dehydration of alcohols, oligomerization of ethylene or the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis followed by purification. Linear alpha olefins comprise of various important products like 1-butene, 1-octene, 1-hexene, 1-tetradecene, etc. They have terminal double bond at the primary carbon of the chain which increases their reactivity.
Being a versatile organic compound, they are used in a number of industries such as cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, chemical, coatings & paper, automotive and consumer goods. Linear alpha olefins are used in the manufacture of polymers like polyethylene and polyalphaolefin, synthetic lubricants, detergents alcohols, plasticizer alcohol, etc. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the global linear alpha olefins market reached a volume of 4.7 Million Tons in 2018 and is further expected to reach 5.9 Million Tons by 2024.
The production of linear alpha olefins witnessed fluctuations during 2014-2018 as a result of a significant fall in the year 2009. The market, however, recovered in the year 2010 on account of numerous forces. The majority of the total global consumption of linear alpha olefins is in the polyethylene industry as co-monomers in the production of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Thus, fast-growing polyethylene industry has significantly increased the global demand for linear alpha olefins in the past several years. Moreover, changing consumer preferences, rising disposable incomes, increasing focus on bio-based alpha olefins along with a strong demand from emerging markets are other factors that have facilitated the market growth.
