Flame retardant chemicals can be defined as additive materials used to inhibit flames and to stop the magnification of burning. These are materials with large non-inflammable effect such as halogen, phosphorus, nitrogen containing compound, and hydroxide metallic compound, etc. At present, flame retardants are mostly applied in plastics and rubber which in turn are used in the manufacturing of building and construction; electrical and electronics; wire and cable; automobile and transportation; textile; etc. These do not impart any property to the material with which they are added. However, these inhibit or delay burning of materials and are indispensable for protecting electrical appliances, construction materials, and textiles. With increasing fire safety standards across the globe and growing use of flammable materials, flame retardant chemicals are gaining more and more importance.

This study estimates the global market by the end of 2017. Asia-Pacific is one of the most dominant markets, accounting for 48.5% of the global volume consumption in 2011. It is the fastest growing region for the market both in terms of production and consumption. Flame retardant chemicals owing to their advanced and better quality characteristics are one of the fastest growing segments of today's plastic additives industry.

The flame retardant chemical market research study provides detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the global market. The report provides a comprehensive review of major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, winning imperatives, challenges, and key issues in the market. The market is further segmented and forecasted for major geographic regions, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World that include key growth regions such as China and India.

The global flame retardant chemicals industry is witnessing high growth on account of increasing applications, technological advancements, and growing demand in the Asia-Pacific region. Flame retardant chemicals are largely used in industries such as building and construction; electrical and electronics; wires and cables; and automobile and transportation. With the increasing use of plastic material in above mentioned industries, use of flame retardant becomes inevitable as plastic materials can easily catch fire.

In terms of revenue, global market was estimated at $4,792.5 million in 2011 and is further expected to reach $7,131.9 million in 2017 by growing at a CAGR of 6.9% through 2012 to 2017. The global market for flame retardant chemicals is presently experiencing strong growth mainly achieved by rising demand from its end-user applications, especially building and construction; electrical and electronics; wire and cable, and automobile and transportation; etc. are expected to drive growth over the next few years. The growth in the global market will be stimulated by expanding applications in motor vehicles, electronics, construction, and medical products.

Asia-Pacific is leading geography in flame retardant chemicals market. Owing to rapid growth in end-user industries of market in this region, Asia-Pacific has become highly lucrative market for flame retardant chemicals manufacturers. Europe and North America constitute second and third largest market for fame retardant chemicals. However, growth in these markets has been hampered due to increasing regulatory pressure and ban on some high value flame retardant chemicals such as brominated flame retardants. Europe and North America collectively account for 48.0% of total revenue garnered by global market. Despite of its smaller size, rest of the world market for flame retardant chemicals is growing at rapid pace and expected to post fastest growth rate during 2012 to 2017.

Key participant in the market include, Albemarle Corp. (U.S.), Chemtura Corp. (U.S.), AkzoNobel N.V. (The Netherlands), Clariant AG (Switzerland), Dahihachi Chemicals (Japan) and LANXESS AG (Germany).
