Linear Alpha Olefins Market worth over $19 bn by 2024
Published Date: November 7, 2017 Author: Global Market Insights, Inc.
Linear Alpha Olefins (LAO) Market size may surpass USD 19 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Growing PAOs demand in synthetic based lubricants manufacturing due to key properties including reduced wear & tear, low volatility, thermal stability, natural lubricity and chemical inertness should positively influence linear alpha olefins market size. PAO is widely used in production of engine oils and greases to balance cost with performance may fuel product demand.
U.S. linear alpha olefins demand market must surpass USD 6 billion during the forecast period due to its surge in ethylene production and shale oil boom in the region. Availability and constant supply of ethylene at low price has resulted in increasing production of LAO based products.
Linear alpha olefins market demand from HDPE application should grow steadily surpassing USD 2.4 billion by 2024. Growing HDPE demand in film and injection molding applications owing to its superior impact & puncture resistance and high tensile strength should boost product demand over the forecasted timeframe.
Companies focusing on development of bio based products to reduce dependency on fossil based raw materials should have positive impact on market growth. Growing R&D expenditures to formulate renewable products and reduce environmental impact should favor industry growth. Increasing investments on to enhance manufacturing process technology for high quality products should surge linear alpha olefins demand.
Key feedstock required for commercial LAO production include ethylene, syn-gas and C4 steam. Fluctuating crude oil index coupled with procurement risk associated with transportation & handling of raw material may challenge industry profitability and impact linear alpha olefins market price trends. However, technological innovations in production process to produce sustainable products should propel industry growth.
