Poly alpha olefin (PAO) is colorless liquids with well-defined, wax-free isoparaffinic structures. Poly alpha olefins have a complex branched structure with an olefin bond in the alpha position of one of the branches. Hydrogenated poly alpha olefins have olefin-carbons saturated with hydrogen, which lends excellent thermal stability to the molecule. It is widely used in automotive and industrial fields

Nowadays, there are three mainly types of Poly Alpha Olefin (PAO), including Low viscosity PAO, Medium viscosity PAO and High viscosity PAO. And Low viscosity PAO is the main type for Poly Alpha Olefin (PAO), and the Low viscosity PAO reached a sales volume of approximately 493881 MT in 2017, with 82.15% of global sales volume. On the basis of oPAO, the oPAO market is primarily split into mPAO 65, mPAO 100, mPAO 150, mPAO 300 and Others. And mPAO 100 is main type for mPAO, and the mPAO 100 reached a sales volume of approximately 32009 MT in 2017, with 48.81% of global mPAO sales volume.

There are obvious difference manufacturing process between China and foreign manufacturers in the manufacturing process of poly alpha olefin (PAO). It is mainly the olefin oligomerization method that in abroad, which can be strictly controlled during the reaction process. And it can obtain product with strong anti-oxidation characteristics. But in China, the production of poly alpha olefin (PAO) is mainly the petroleum cracking method, which products molecular weight has poor uniformity.

At present, Chemtura, ExxonMobil Chemical and Naco are the major players in the producing of high viscosity PAO products. Other manufacturers’ products are mainly concentrated in low viscosity PAO, medium viscosity PAO fields. With the development the technology, most of the manufacturers will enter into the high viscosity PAO products fields.

The global Poly Alpha Olefin (PAO) market was 3690 million US$ in 2018 and is expected to 4260 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 2.1% between 2019 and 2025.
