On the basis of end-use, the global linear alpha olefin market has been segmented as LLPDE, detergents alcohols, HDPE, lubricants, LDPE, and others. LLDPE currently represent the biggest end use industry in the market. The global linear alpha olefins market is dominated by the North America region. The region is both the largest producer and consumer of linear alpha-olefins globally. 

The main uses of linear alpha olefins are as co-monomers in polyethylene production, in the manufacture of poly alpha olefins (used in synthetic lubricants) and in the production of oxo alcohols (used largely in detergents and plasticizers). A recent application of C14 is as an on-land drilling fluid base stock as it is biodegradable and has a significant environmental advantage over other drilling fluids. 

 

Properties and Applications

Linear alpha olefins, also known as normal alpha olefins, are alkenes with a terminal double bond between the first and the second carbon atom and a chemical formula CXH2X. In 1960s, they were produced by the thermal cracking of waxy paraffin found in crude oils. Nowadays, they are produced on an industrial level by a process of oligomerization of ethylene.

Market Analysis

Linear alpha olefins are versatile organic compounds. They are used in a number of industries such as cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, chemical, coatings and paper, automotive and consumer goods. They are used in the manufacture of polymers like polyethylene and polyalphaolefin, synthetic lubricants, detergents alcohols, plasticizer alcohol, etc. 

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. 

This report provides an exhaustive insight into the manufacturing of linear alpha olefins. Factors such as chemical reactions involved, process flow, raw material requirements, mass balance and various manufacturing steps have been thoroughly discussed in the report. The report also provides a comprehensive market evaluation of the major feedstocks required for manufacturing linear alpha olefin viz. ethylene. For feedstock, the report provides price trends, market breakup by end-use, market breakup by region and its key manufacturers.
