The Global Market For Olefin Derivatives size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period, with an estimated value of US$ 71.9 billion by 2028. The growth in this segment will be driven by various factors such as increasing demand for pharmaceuticals and industrial products across the world, growing need for feedstock chemicals due to expanding petrochemical industry, and rising consumption of plastics among others. In recent years, global investments in pharmaceuticals have increased significantly with the Asia Pacific region being one of the leading contributors; also driving investments are countries like India and China which are gradually becoming more important players in this sector.


Olefin is an unsaturated hydrocarbon consisting of a linear chain with one or more double bonds. Olefins are used in many chemical industries as raw material and building blocks for making downstream products such as adhesives, detergents, solvents, polymers (e.g., polyethylene), oleochemicals (e.g., polyolefins), etc. Olefin derivatives refer to the derivative compounds obtained by modifying them through different processes like oxidation, hydrogenation and dehydrogenation reactions, etc.


Olefin derivatives are used in the production of polypropylene, synthetic fibers for textiles and carpeting, cosmetics such as nail polish remover. Olefins are gaining importance due to their usage in pharmaceutical products like Acetominophen (pain relief), ibuprofen (anti-inflammatory), and butalbital which is a sedative drug. The use of olefin derivatives in industrial sectors such as manufacturing industries helps them achieve greater efficiency with reduced costs through improved product quality.


On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Acrylonitrile, Ethylene Oxide, Propylene Glycol, Butanol, and Others.



Acrylonitrile is a colorless gas that has a strong odor and taste. It can be used to produce various compounds such as acrylates, nitrocellulose, and plasticizers for paints or adhesives. The main applications of Acrylonitrile are in the production of acrylic acid which is an important raw material for manufacturing polymers like nylon and spandex.


Ethylene Oxide:

Ethylene Oxide is a colorless gas, liquid, or tablet. It has an unpleasant odor and taste which makes it unsuitable to be used as food additives in any form. In general, Ethylene Oxide is utilized in the manufacturing process of various products such as plastics (polyethylene), polyurethanes for foams; resins and adhesives, industrial cleaners like fatty acids esters found in waxes, etc., pesticides and pharmaceuticals, solvents for cellulose acetate film production; antiseptics/antibiotics, etc.


Propylene Glycol:

Propylene Glycol is a clear, colorless liquid with no odor and taste. It is used in the production of polyester fibers, plasticizers for PVC; paint solvents, antifreeze/deicing agents, etc., as well as being an important solvent for food colors and flavors to be added to beverages like sodas and ice creams.



Butanol is an organic alcohol with the chemical formula CH₃CHOH. It’s a gas at room temperature and pressure, but can be liquefied under reduced pressure in order to form a liquid. Butanol is colorless or white-yellowish, highly flammable, and has a sweet odor similar to ethanol (drinking alcohol). It serves as an important solvent for dyes for clothes; paint solvents found in lacquers; pharmaceutical resins like acetone glycerin etc.; lubricants, petrochemicals.


On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Pharmaceutical (which includes drugs like acetone) and Industrial (that makes paints and other solvents for products such as lacquers), and Others. The industrial sector is expected to occupy the largest share of this market, in terms of value. In addition, the pharmaceutical sector is anticipated to be the second major application segment and expected to witness significant growth during the period.


On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The North American market is estimated to be the largest in terms of revenue. The market is driven by factors such as rising demand for olefin derivatives from pharmaceutical and industrial sectors, a high production base, the presence of major players, and increasing development activities that result in increased product supply.

The Latin America region is anticipated to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period owing to rapid economic expansion, rise in consumer purchasing power coupled with intensive research & development initiatives by key companies operating in this region. This regional segmentation can also be attributed to the availability of raw materials coupled with low labor cost which will drive organic compound producers. The Middle East & Africa region is expected to generate significant revenues on account of a surge in the pharmaceutical sector owing to growing healthcare needs among consumers due partly because of the rise in population.


The global olefin derivatives market is projected to register significant growth during the forecast period owing to increased consumption of organic compounds by various end-use industries such as pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturing. Increasing demand for these products mainly from Asia Pacific economies like China, India, Japan due to rapid economic expansion will further propel this regional segmentation. Moreover, rising investments & intensive research activities coupled with an increase in production capacity will lead towards sustained supply which would subsequently augment product offerings across different applications including pharma and industrial sectors. However, stringent regulations on environmental protection may hamper growth at some point in time. The manufacturers are also focusing on sustainability initiatives that help them attain ISO 14000 certification which leads towards sustainable development practices.
