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. 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. During 2014-2018, the global Linear Alpha Olefin market grew at a CAGR of around 4.1%. The consumption of Linear Alpha Olefin is driven by the LLDPE, detergents and HDPE industries which account for the majority of its consumption. The report by Expert Market Research entitled “Linear Alpha Olefin Market Report and Forecast 2019-2024” provides a comprehensive analysis for anyone who plans to foray in the Linear Alpha Olefin market.
