SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 9, 2015) - Global Alpha Olefins Market size is likely to be valued at USD 10.7 billion by 2020; as per a new research report by Radiant Insights, Inc. Increasing polyethylene demand for use in plastic production is anticipated to drive market growth. Growing application scope of protective films agriculture for reduction in soil erosion and UV rays protection is likely to favor demand. Increase in poly-alpha-olefin demand for manufacturing synthetic lubricants to act against engine's wear & tear is likely to support market growth.

Increase in synthetic oil demand for oilfield exploration & production (E&P) and drilling is anticipated to drive growth. Volatile prices observed in key raw materials that include ethylene along with regulations to curb carbon emissions is likely to challenge industry growth. Increasing investments to develop bio-based alpha olefins is anticipated to provide new avenues for market growth.

1-hexene was the largely consumed product segment and accounted for more than 23% of the market share in 2013. 1-hexene is likely to witness highest gains up to 2020 owing to its major use in manufacturing HDPE and LLDPE polymers. 1-butene is anticipated to witness average gains at an estimated CAGR of 4.3% from 2014 to 2020.
