Pre COVID-19 Analysis on Linear alpha olefins Market

The linear alpha olefin is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% by generating a revenue of $11,747.8 million by 2026.

Linear alpha olefin belongs to the family of organic compounds called alkenes, which are denoted by the chemical formula CxH2x. Linear alpha olefin are the alkenes consisting a terminal double bond between the first carbon atom and second carbon atom. Double bond states the chemical properties that can endure all the reactions of an olefin. Linear alpha olefin is used for synthetic lubricants, lubricant additives polyethylene, base oil for synthetic drilling fluids, surfactant intermediates and many others.

Demand from Several Industrial Applications

Linear alpha olefins are alkenes that have a terminal double bond of carbon atoms. These double atoms make these olefins useful in a large number of applications and can undergo all the reactions of an olefin including polymerization, metathesis, and others. Linear alpha olefins are used to manufacture products such as synthetic lubricants, polymers (HPDE and LLDPE), oilfield chemicals, synthetic acids, additives, and detergent alcohols. Most of the linear alpha olefins are produced by ethylene oligomerization. These oligomerizations are used for production of higher olefins, which are used in the preparation of oil chemicals, lubricants, and for fusion of linear-low density polyethylene.

Application Areas of Linear Alpha Olefins

Linear alpha olefins are extremely diverse, as they are known for high purity and are used in a range of applications, including industrial oils, high-performing engine, waxes, plastic packaging, synthetic lubricants, and as constructing blocks for surfactants and other special chemicals. Linear alpha olefins can provide unlimited options for chemical development and can be also tailored to meet individual specifications.

Following are the uses of linear alpha olefins in various applications:


Co-monomers such as 1-butene, 1-hexene, and 1-octene are used as strength modifiers for specialized plastic products.

Synthetic Lubricants

Linear alpha olefins are used as a feedstock poly-alpha-olefin (PAO) for synthetic lubricants.


Linear alpha olefins are typically functionalized for use in surfactants such as detergent alcohols, alkyl-amine oxides, and olefin sulfonates.

Drilling Fluids

Linear alpha olefins are isomerized into ecological offshore drilling fluids. The linear alpha olefins are also changed from one isomer to another in raw materials for paper-sizing.

Lube Additives & Functional fluids

In additives, linear alpha olefins are used as anti-corrosion additives and detergents and lubricants or functional fluids.

Synthetic Waxes

In this application linear alpha olefins are used in candles, plastic processing, and several other specialty uses such as crayons, color, inks, and cosmetic emollients.

Future of Linear Alpha Olefins Industry

Global market for linear alpha olefins is projected to witness a significant growth during the forecast period from 2019 to 2026. Several applications of linear alpha olefins such as polyethylene, synthetic lubricants, and detergent alcohols are boosting the market growth.
