Alpha Olefin Market Size Worth $12.58 Billion By 2025 | CAGR: 4.8%

November 2017 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global alpha olefin market is expected to reach USD 12.58 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Major companies are involved in raw material production, alpha olefins production, distribution of alpha olefins production and end-use products manufacturing.

End-use products include polyethylene, detergent alcohols, synthetic lubricants, plasticizers, etc. In-house production and utilization of alpha olefin helps the manufacturers to cut down logistics cost and cater to end-users directly to increase profitability.Increasing polyethylene demand from various end-use industries is expected to remain a key driving factor for the global alpha olefin market.

Normal alpha olefins are considered to be the best intermediators for the production of alpha olefin sulfonate (AOS) surfactants. The advantages achieved are, good foaming and wetting properties, high hard-water compatibility, and superb detergency. Along with being rapidly biodegradable, AOS is unhampered of skin irritants and sensitizers. C14-C16 AOS blends are usually used for the production of liquid hand soaps.
