The North American 1-tetradecene market growth is mainly attributed to the increasing demand of polyalphaolefins from the end-user industry, especially polyethylene. This market is projected to register a CAGR of 3.47% between 2012 and 2018. North America is considered to dominate the global market of alpha olefins, and has the highest market share in comparison to other regions. 1-tetradecene is a sub-product of the main parent, named as linear alpha olefins. A striking feature of this chemical compound is that it consists of a chain of twelve carbon atoms, intersecting at the alpha position. This intersection is known to enhance the reactivity of such chemical compounds, thereby increasing its scope of application across various chemical industry segments, which ranges from detergent alcohols to synthetic lubricants. In North America, the rapid progression of the chemical industry due to extensive investments and expansion plans made in this sector has resulted in the rapid progression of the 1-tetradecene market.
Apart from factors discussed above, significant technological developments made in the field of polyethylene have fueled the growing demand of 1-tetradecene market. Certain factors, such as the fluctuating prices of raw materials and heightened manufacturing costs might act as market restraints. North America, being the largest market base of polyalphaolefins, is competent enough to effectively overcome such restraints.
