1-Decene Market

Market Leader - 1-Decene Market

The 1-Decene market size is projected to reach USD 798 million by 2025 from USD 576 million in 2020, at a CAGR of 6.7%. The demand for 1-Decene is attributed to increasing demand for PAO-based lubricants and increasing industrialization in Middle East & Africa and Asia Pacific. However, growth of group III base oils, volatile raw material prices, and growth in demand for hybrid vehicles and increasing battery price parity are restricting its growth in the 1-Decene market. On the other hand, the growing R&D investments for the development of alpha olefins from different sources has created opportunities for manufacturers.

Royal Dutch Shell (Netherlands), Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC (US), and INEOS (UK) are the major players in this market.

Royal Dutch Shell is one of the largest players in the 1-Decene market. It is one of the largest oil & gas companies in the world. Shell is both vertically and horizontally integrated and is active throughout the value chain in the oil & gas industry. It is one of the world’s most valuable companies and one of the six oil and gas “supermajors.” In the early 1900s, it was also a part of “seven sisters.” The company offers  1-Decene via the downstream business segment.  The company focusses on expansion to remain competitive in the 1-Decene market.
