The Alpha Olefin Market is mainly driven by polyethylene application, which accounts
for the largest consumption share of alpha olefins. Rising demand for co-monomers in the
production of polyethylene and poly alpha olefins (used in synthetic lubricants) is
driving the alpha olefin market. Along with polyethylene and poly alpha olefins (PAO), oil
field drilling is also a growing application.

The alpha olefin players are constantly looking for capacity expansions and new
product development targeting new applications which in turn would increase their market
shares. This market has a very few large players that are mainly in the alpha olefin

market followed by CP Chem and Sasol.

various submarkets with respect to the main regions such as North America, Europe,
