North America 1-Hexene Market
The North America 1-Hexene Market report estimates the size of the 1-Hexene market in terms of volume and value. The report provides a comprehensive review of the key market drivers, challenges, and issues.
The North America 1-Hexene market was valued at $716.04 million in 2012, and is projected to reach $982.26 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 5.4%, for the given period. 1-hexene is a critical component used to produce polyethylene, a plastic resin commonly converted into film, plastic pipe, milk jugs, detergent bottles, and food and beverage containers. Demand from end-user industries will contribute to the demand for North America1-Hexene Market.
The report, ‘North America 1-Hexene 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 volume and value. North America’s 1-Hexene demand will reach 491.64 thousand MT by 2018.
1-Hexene is an organic compound with the formula C6H12. 1-Hexene is a colourless liquid. It is classified as a high olefin and is one of the industrially significant linear alpha olefins. C6 is mainly used as co-monomer of HAO-LLDPE and HDPE (High-density polyethylene). It can also be used as an intermediate to produce mercaptans, oxo alcohols, organic aluminum compounds, and synthetic fatty acids. Strong demand for polyethylene, the biggest market with about 70% will keep 1-Hexene in demand despite competition from co-monomers 1-hexene and 1-octene.).
The C6 alpha olefin (1-Hexene) demand in North America was 397.8 thousand MT in 2013, which is expected to reach 491.64 thousand MT, at a CAGR of 4.3%, 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.
