Linear Alpha Olefin Capacity consolidations with growing end-uses

In 2020, the global Linear Alpha Olefins (LAOs) capacity was estimated to be around 7200 kilo tons out of which nearly 37% was on-purpose LAO capacities while the remaining 63% were full range LAO manufacturing facilities. The Linear Alpha Olefins business environment has been even more volatile than the overall petrochemical industry given the fact that the business really accelerated in the 90’s with increased demand of polyolefin comonomers - and the fact that, due to the relatively small markets in the 1990s, even modest capacity additions could create major oversupply issues. This was the major driver for the sudden transformation of the industry profitability between 2000 and 2005. As per Prismane Consulting estimates, between 2014 and 2020, the global LAOs capacity went up from 6000 kilo tons to 7200 kilo tons, an increase of nearly 17%. 
Rising demand of butene-1 and hexene-1 for LLDPE/ HDPE Comonomers and Other HLAO end-use industries 

Butene-1, Hexene-1 and Octene-1 are used as a comonomer in the LLDPE / HDPE production. Rising demand for polyolefin comonomers and growing application of the compound in the production of specialty chemicals are identified as the major factors driving the growth of the overall LAO market. With new investment in the polyethylene sector globally and in the Asia-Pacific sector and with industries like automotive and manufacturing that are shifting their base to Asian countries, the demand for butene-1 and Other LAO like hexene-1 and Octene-1 are expected to drive the LAO demand in the long-term. 
The strong Polyethylene demand growth in Asia-Pacific led by China and India owing to an increase in per capita consumption on the back of increase in purchasing power and rising middle class is expected to drive the demand for linear alpha olefins. Polyethylene is the most consumed commodity plastic serving various applications ranging from film for packaging and grocery bags, to detergent bottles and pipes for construction. As demand for food and consumer goods packaging surges, demand for polyethylene will witness a faster growth which will drive the growth of linear alpha olefins. As per Prismane Consulting estimates, there will be an increase in the per capita consumption of Polyethylene in countries in like China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand and other developing countries in the region in the mid and long-term forecast to 2030.
