1-BUTENE MARKET: NORTH AMERICA
The North America 1-Butene Market report estimates the size of the 1-Butene market in terms of volume and value. The report provides a comprehensive review of the key market drivers, challenges, and issues.
The market was valued at $592.62 million in 2012, and is projected to reach $807.88 million by 2018, at a CAGR of 5.3%, for the given period. Major drivers for the North America 1-butene market are growth in polyethylene industry, and increasing capacity expansions.
The report, ‘North America 1-Butene Market by Applications (LLDPE, HDPE, HDPE, detergent alcohols, synthetic lubricants, plasticizers, oil field Chemical & fine Chemicals and miscellaneous (Polybutene-1, AOS/Additives and others)’ defines and segments the Alpha-olefin market in the region with analysis and projections of the volume and value. The demand for 1-Butene market will reach 137.7 thousand MT by 2018 in North America.
1-Butene is colourless, combustible gas with a characteristic odour. It has good solvent properties. 1 – Butene can be manufactured either through the separation from crude C4 refinery streams or from the reaction of ethylene. Linear alpha olefin (alkene) 1-Butene is a versatile chemical that can be used to manufacture a number of important chemicals such as linear light density polyethylene (LLDP), polybutene-1, valeraldehyde, 1,2-butylene oxide, etc. A few of the large producers of 1-Butene are Shell Chemical (U.K), ExxonMobil (U.S.), Evonik (Germany), and CP Chem (U.S.).
Strong demand for polyethylene, the biggest market with about 70% will keep 1-butene in demand despite competition from co-monomers 1-hexene and 1-octene.).
The C4 alpha olefin (1-butene) demand in North America was 323 thousand MT in 2013, and is expected to reach 397 thousand MT by 2018, at a CAGR of 4.2%, for the given period. The growth is an outcome of increased demand for end-user applications such as polyethylene co-monomers (LLDPE, HDPE) and capacity expansions.
