"LLDPE application segment to capture the largest share of the alpha olefins market"
The LLDPE application segment accounts for the biggest share of the olefins market. This is attributed to the increased need for high-quality plastics from the plastics industry. The superior properties of LLDPE such as high tensile strength and high puncture resistance make it the ideal material for use in plastic applications. Due to its versatility and chemical inertness, LLDPE is the most widely used plastic. It is mostly used in packaging applications such as food packaging, pharmaceutical packaging, and consumer goods packaging, among others. LLDPE is replacing conventional LDPE in many areas because of its low production cost and high product performance. The market for alpha olefins is growing due to the increased demand for LLDPE from various industries.
