High Chain Alpha Olefins Market Segment Analysis – By Product

1-Hexene is expected to dominate the high chain alpha olefins market size throughout the forecast period. 1-hexene majorly used in the production of polyethylene and plasticizers, also used in production of Oxo alcohols, and synthetic fatty acid. Apart from this 1-butene (propene) is the most common material used for the production of low-density polyethylene and high-density polyethylene (both are polyolefin). Thus, the high demand for polyethylene due to growth in the packaging industry is expected to boost the hexane sector. It is also used for lubricants that are expected to further growth of the market. On the other hand, isobutylene olefin is used in automotive sector for manufacturing of tires of cars and other vehicles, which is likely to grow the market demand.

High Chain Alpha Olefins Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Polyolefin co-monomer segment dominated the high chain alpha olefins market is 2020 and is growing at a CAGR 6.5% during this forecast period. Polyolefin co-monomers are majorly used in industrial sector, automotive sector and construction activities. Polyolefin is also used in medical and pharmaceutical sector for high efficiency particulate absorbing filter certification, which is an efficiency standard of air filter. Thus, increase in demand of polyolefin fuels the growth of high chain alpha olefin market.

High Chain Alpha Olefins Market Segment Analysis – By End Use Industry

Packaging segment by end use industry leads the high chain alpha olefins market share in 2020, with increasing use of polyethylene in food packaging sector, healthcare sector, medical packaging, consumer goods, and so on. Also, alpha olefins (like isobutylene, 1-butene, alkenes) are used as raw material in pharmaceutical packaging due to easily availability, which boost growth of the high chain alpha olefins market. Polyethylene & papers, both are widely used in packaging industry for wrapping or covering application. According to All India Plastics Manufacturers' Association (AIPMA), India’s polyethylene demand may increase by 129%, surpassing Asia’s projected growth rate of 81% by 2023. Plastic sheet use for safety purpose of product and protect the food from moisture. Hence, increases in sales of packaging have promote the growth of high chain alpha olefins, which are used as lubricants.

High Chain Alpha Olefins Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

North America dominating the high chain alpha olefins market share with 40%, due to widely utilizing in polyethylene, house hold detergents, lubricants, and plasticizers. Polyethylene is consumed in large quantities in North America whereby increases the production capacity of plastic, which helps to increase the market. Olefins are used as the raw material for making polyolefin which is widely accepted in polyethylene and paper resins. United State is one of the largest consumers of plastics products.
