Forecast, 2012 To 2020
Industry Overview
Global alpha olefin market size is expected to reach 5.16 million tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of
4.4% from 2014 to 2020.
Polyethylene is expected to witness a surge in demand on account of its easy processability, versatility,
recyclability, and low cost. Increase in polyethylene demand for plastic production is expected to drive
alpha olefin market growth. These olefins are primarily used as feedstock for manufacturing LLDPE and
HDPE. Strong packaged food products demand, particularly in Asia Pacific, is expected to drive LLDPE
market.

economic growth. Increasing population coupled with polyethylene’s application versatility is further
expected to drive the polyethylene market over the forecast period.
Growing protective films usage in agriculture to reduce soil erosion and increase protection against UV
rays is also anticipated to fuel demand. Growing poly-alpha-olefin demand for synthetic lubricants in
order to reduce engine wear & tear is expected to drive market growth.
Increasing oilfield exploration & drilling activities is anticipated to drive demand. It is being developed as
synthetic based oil drilling fluid which is likely to help address environmental concerns associated with
diesel based oil based mud.
Volatile prices of key raw materials such as ethylene are likely to affect the profitability of industry
participants. Increasing government regulations regarding polyethylene usage coupled with release of
green house gases (GNG) is likely to challenge industry. Investments in research to develop bio-based
alpha olefin are likely to reduce dependability on petrochemical based raw materials and curb GNG.
Product Overview
1-hexene was the dominant product segment in alpha olefins market and was valued at over USD 1.8
billion in 2013. 1-hexene is also likely to witness highest gains over the forecast period owing to its
increasing use as a co monomer for manufacturing LLDPE and HDPE polymers.
1-octene accounted for more than 21% of the total demand in 2013 and is anticipated to witness
moderate growth rates of CAGR over 4.1% up to 2020. Growth of application segments such as
plasticizers, cosmetics and adhesives is likely to drive 1-octene demand.
