Industry / Sector Trends

Linear Alpha Olefins Market size was over USD 12.5 billion in 2016 and consumption may exceed 7 million tons by 2024.

U.S. Linear Alpha Olefins Market Size, By Application, 2016 & 2024 (USD Million)


Positive application outlook in detergent alcohols, lubricants, oilfield chemicals, and plasticizers should drive linear alpha olefins (LAO) market size. It is extensively used as co-monomers for polypropylene and polyethylene production, thereby favoring product demand. 

Growing polyethylene demand in packaging industry should stimulate linear alpha olefins market size. Global packaging market size was over USD 800 billion in 2016 and should witness significant gains owing to new packaging materials development. Rising linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) demand for its wide application usage in food packaging, shrink films, automotive, household products, and agriculture is likely to contribute towards industry growth.

Poly alpha olefins (PAO) are derived from LAO and is widely used in synthetic lubricants production. Synthetic lubricants market is expected to witness significant gains at over 3% by 2024. 1-Decene is a major PAO building block which finds application in automatic gearbox transmission fluids for automotive, turbine and machinery due to lubricating properties with high viscosity index, high oxidative and thermal stability, low volatility, and high auto ignition points, thereby reducing engine friction, improving efficiency, and longer service life.

Growth of consumer goods and automotive industries may have a positive influence on oilfield drilling sector should drive linear alpha olefins market demand. Growing automotive sales along with rise in per-capita income should boost industry growth. Stringent policies for carbon emission in automotive industry may impact engine design and hinder overall industry growth.

Key raw material used in commercial production includes ethylene, C4 steam and syn-gas. Fluctuating raw material prices due to volatile crude oil & gas market may hinder profitability and affect linear alpha olefins price trend.
