Poly (1-Decene) (CAS No: 68037-01-4) is synthetic product with molecular formula [CH2CH[(CH2)7CH3]]n. It is also referred to as hydrogenated poly-1-decene and hydrogenated decene homopolymer. It is a mixture of synthetic branched-chain hydrocarbons (isoparaffins) which are synthesized by the oligomerization of 1-decene to the tri-decene, tetra-decene, and penta-decene molecules followed by hydrogenation to full saturation of the oligomer. It  has a well-defined composition which contains 1-9% hexamer, 42-61% tetramer, 12-23% pentamer, 16-35% trimer and dimer concentration less than 1%. Commercially, one of the major application areas for Poly (1-Decene) is polishing or glazing agent in dry fruits and sugar confectionary such as jellies and fruit gums. Moreover, Poly (1-Decene) also finds application as a lubricating agent in dough-dividing machines, as a releasing agent in bread tins, and as an anti-foaming and anti-dusting agent.

Poly (1-Decene) Market: Drivers & Restraints

Global Poly (1-Decene) market is expected to witness a moderate single digit growth during the forecast period. This steady growth in consumption of Poly (1-Decene) is expected to be driven, primarily, by increasing demand for food additives from developing economies spearheaded by China. As such, steady growth of end use industry is expected to in turn drive the growth of global Poly (1-Decene) market over the forecast period. On the flip-side, however, relatively weaker economic growth in major markets across the globe in the initial part of the forecast period is likely to impede the growth of global Poly (1-Decene) market in the same period.
