1-Decene Market: Overview

  • Decene is an alkene, i.e. unsaturated hydrocarbon, with chemical formula C10H20. It consists of a chain of 10 carbon atoms with one double bond.
  • It is produced by oligomerization of ethylene or by breaking higher carbon content petroleum waxes. It is a white clear mobile liquid, which is toxic.
  • There are several types of isomers of decene based on the position and geometry of double bonds. Of these isomers, 1-Decene is commonly used in industrial processes.
  • It is used as a monomer in copolymers and is an intermediate in the production of epoxides, amines, synthetic lubricants, oxo alcohols, alkylated aromatics, and synthetic fatty acids.
  • 1-Decene is majorly employed in the production of polyalphaolefins (PAO), a category of synthetic lubricants that is used as high performance synthetic lubricants for industrial gear systems and automatic transmission engines in aviation and marine sectors.

  • Increasing requirements in cosmetic and food & beverage industries and rise in environmental regulations in the automotive sector are indirectly boosting the demand for synthetic lubricants. Increase in demand for synthetic lubricants is estimated to fuel the demand for 1-Decene during the forecast period. 

Asia Pacific Expected to Hold Prominent Share of Global 1-Decene Market

  • Geographically, the global 1-Decene market can be split across five regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific is a major region of the global 1-Decene market. It is anticipated to dominate the global market during forecast period.
  • Developing economies such as India and China constitute major share of the market in Asia Pacific. India and China are expected to constitute large market share of the Asia Pacific region during the forecast period.
  • 1-Decene is largely employed in synthetic lubricants that are used in engines in the automotive sector. Rise in per capita income and changing lifestyle in countries such as India and China in Asia Pacific are expected to fuel the automotive sector in Asia Pacific. This, in turn, is projected to augment the demand for 1-Decene in synthetic lubricants during forecast period.
  • Belgium is the major country for 1-Decene in Europe. It is projected to be a dominant market during the forecast period. Presence of large industrial base of polyalphaolefins in Belgium makes it a high potential market for 1-Decene. However, Germany is expected to be a rapidly growing region of the 1-Decene market. Rapid expansion in the 1-Decene market in Germany can be ascribed to the growth in the automobile industry in the country; Germany is the leading manufacturer of automobiles in Europe.
  • Demand for synthetic lubricants is high in North America, especially in the U.S. North America is expected account for a considerable share of the market during the forecast period.
  • The market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is anticipated to expand at a sluggish pace during the forecast period. Stringent government regulations and focus on sustainable development have substantially impacted the 1-Decene market in Europe. The market in Europe is projected to expand at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period.
