Worldwide Light Olefins Market Outlook, Emerging Trends, New Growth Opportunities, Growth Prospects, Business Overview 2023

Global Light Olefins Market Information: By Type (Ethylene, Propylene), Derivatives (Polypropylene, Propylene Oxide, Acrylonitrile, Cumene, Acrylic Acid, Oxo Alcohols, Polyethylene), Application (Chemical Commodities, Refinery), And By Region – Forecast Till 2023

Market Overview

The Global Light Olefins Market is estimated to expand at 5.78 % CAGR during the assessment period (2017-2023). The market is expected to reach USD 475.8 million by the end of 2023 owing to the shifting focus of the consumers towards plastic goods. Light Olefins are derived by hydrocracking of hydrocarbons under high temperature. Raw materials such as ethane, propane, naphtha, biomass, and butane are required to produce light olefins.

Industry News

Honeywell has announced that Jiangsu Sailboat Petrochemical Company, Ltd. has accepted a new methanol-to-olefins unit provided by Honeywell UOP. With a production capacity of 833,000 metric tons per year, the unit is the largest single-train MTO unit in the world. The new plant converts methanol from domestic coal into olefins for plastics production.

Competitive Analysis

Some of the major players operating the market growth are BASF SE (Germany), China Petro & Chemical Corp (China), Saudi Arabian Oil Co. (Saudi Arabia), Exxon Mobil Corporation (U.S.), DowDuPont (U.S.), PetroChina (China), Honeywell International Inc. (U.S.), Gazprom (Russian Federation), Royal Dutch Shell (Netherlands), Reliance Industries Limited (India), and others.

Drivers and Constraints Impacting the Market

With the shifting focus of the consumers towards plastic goods over conventional items like metal, wood, steel, and others owing to the reduction in the cost of raw material and energy for the production of light olefins, the market is predicted to stimulate. The conversion of Light Olefins from methanol is another factor contributing to the growth of the market. For instance, 100 % methanol can be converted to light olefins using zeolites, with the help of technologies namely UOP/ Hydro MTO and Mobil’s MTO process. Rising exploration of oil and gas reserves as well as growing trend of using light olefins for producing biofuels from bio-ethylene using sugarcane and corn is expected to foster the market growth over the review period.

On the flip side, ethylene is toxic and might pose threat to the environment. This is estimated to inhibit the market growth over the assessment period.
