Alkenes stand for a set of unsaturated aliphatic hydrocarbons that have leastwise one carbon-carbon dibond. Alkenes are otherwise named olefins (olefines), especially in the petrochem industry, due to their ability of forming oleaginous fluids when reacting with chlorine gas. The group of alkenes is identified as the alkene (or olefin) series, the first members of which being ethylene (ethene), propylene (propene, or methylethylene), butylene (or butene), hexane and pentene.
The worldwide consumption and production in the Alkenes (Olefins) Market has risen in nearly all leading geographies in recent years, with only Europe somewhat lagging behind. The APAC, mostly China, keeps on its mission of backing up the global demand for the chemicals, though tough credit policies and the Eurozone crisis have taken a piece of action. The Middle East region, Saudi Arabia and Iran specifically, holds short as a major Alkenes (Olefins) maker.
This Catalogue’s reports offer high level analyses and data (historical-to-forecast) on the global, region-wide and national Alkenes (Olefins) Markets and sub-markets. The research reports study existent market trends, industry restraints and drivers, demand and supply patterns, price movements, among lots of other relevant issues. Furthermore, competition is reviewed and Alkenes (Olefins) companies are profiled in the research reports.
