Alpha Olefin Market Analysis 2021-2028

Alpha olefin is an organic compound that belongs to the alkene’s family, with a double bond for the primary carbon or alpha position. This double bond enhances the reactivity of the compound and makes it useful for a number of applications. Alpha olefin is mainly produced by the catalytic oligomerization of ethylene and fishcer-tropsch process. Alpha olefin is of two structural forms linear alpha olefins and branched alpha olefins. Linear alpha olefin is extremely diverse, known for its highly purest form, which increase its application such as waxes, plastic packaging, high-performing engine and industrial oils, and as building blocks for surfactants and other specialty chemicals. In addition, it is used as surfactant in detergent production and crude oil refining.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • Since the oil and gas industry has witnessed a slowdown due to COVID-19, being the major application of alpha olefin in this industry is expected to hamper the market.
  • Automobile sector, being the core sector of the economy, owing to major disruption due to the pandemic has hampered the growth of the alpha olefin market.
  • Pre COVID-19, companies were growing at a moderate pace with sustainable growth. However, the coronavirus pandemic has major impact across various industries including plastic industry, growing concerns about hygiene and safety of reusable plastic packaging, lead to decrease the demand of alpha olefin.

Top Impacting Factors

  • Alpha olefins are used in the production of polyethylene. Rising demand for polyethylene production from the plastic industry propelling the demand for alpha olefins as well. The uses of alpha olefins such as additive in lubricant oil and functional fluids act as the drivers of the market. The growth of alpha olefin with low carbon chain such as 1-butene, 1-hexene, 1-octene is much high, primarily used in the polyolefin comonomers, which is expected to drive the market. In addition, automobile industry is emerging as another platform for the application of alpha olefin, which is driving toward the market growth. However, cost involved in the manufacturing process is considered as the biggest restraining factor as a slight change in pressure and variation in temperature can cause huge loss for the company. Again, fluctuation in price of the raw material increases the uncertainty in the cost price of the product, which can hamper the growth of the industry. Alpha olefin is also used as a drilling fluid in oil extraction activities and due to the toxicity of the range above C12, poses a danger for aquatic life, which is the major threat for the market.

Market Trends

  • Major companies are focusing on extracting of raw material from ecofriendly products, which can decrease the supply chain gap and create opportunity for the market.
  • High demand for oil and petroleum is creating more demand for extraction activities in oil and gas industry, it will in turn drive the demand for the alpha olefin market.
  • The consumption of HDPE and LLDPE pipes in construction industry is increasing owing to the rapid urbanization, being the major application of alpha olefin in the production process is another factor for growth.
  • Development of the automobile and packaging industry in the Asia-Pacific is expected to drive the growth of the alpha olefins market. Moreover, factors including increasing population, higher dispensable livelihoods, better expectations of living, and rising utilization of packed food might increases the consumption of alpha olefin.
