In 2018, According to OICA the automotive production in India, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia has increased up to 5174645, 2167694, 1343714 and 564800, i.e., 8.0%, 9.0%, 10.3% and 12.2% higher than previous year due to rising per capita income of the individuals. According to Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), the Indian automotive industry has attracted Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) worth US$ 22.35 billion during the period April 2000 to June 2019, which has influenced the growth of the higher olefins market in APAC region. In addition, China is the largest consumer and producer of surfactants in the region, supported by the domestic consumption and presence of large number of local producers in the country. Thus, growth of various end users is expected to boost the consumption of higher olefins, as they are the reactive intermediates that are used to manufacture products used in automotive, surfactants, corrosion inhibitors, agricultural chemicals, and others.

Drivers – Higher Olefins Market
  • Growing demand for automotive lubricants.
Lubricants are widely utilized in energy, textile, chemical, construction, automotive and infrastructure sectors for engine oil, hydraulic oil, bearings, and wire rope applications. According to International Trade Administration (ITA), China is the world’s largest vehicle market. The Chinese government is expecting that automobile output will reach 35 million by 2025. According to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, over 27 million vehicles were sold in 2018. In 2017, according to International Trade Administration (ITA), 1.2 million new passenger cars, SUVs and commercial vehicles were sold in the Australian market, an increase of 0.9% from 2016. According to OICA in 2018, global light commercial vehicles production increased from 19,482,394 to 20, 635,799 i.e., 5.9% from 2017.Therefore, increasing sales of vehicles and rising demand for lightweight as well as heavy-duty vehicles is majorly enhancing the demand for the automotive lubricants, which is influencing higher olefins market growth.

Challenges – Higher Olefins Market 
  • Fluctuating raw materials prices.
Price and availability of raw materials are major factors that affect the price of the end products. The major challenge for the global higher olefins market is the oscillating price trends of raw materials, which are fluctuating due to volatile energy prices, as olefins comprised of hydrocarbons, especially ethylene and propylene. Made from ethane, propane, naphtha, and gasoline that are composed in natural gas and crude oil. According to BP statistics, in 2018, the average crude oil price increased to $71/ bbl from $54/bbl in 2017. Therefore, the fluctuation in raw materials prices is affecting higher olefins price which is limiting its market growth.
