The market size of halogen-free flame retardant was USD 3.36 Billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 5.38 Billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 8.4% between 2016 and 2021. In this report, 2015 is considered as the base year and forecast period is between 2016 and 2021. The global halogen-free flame retardant market has been segmented based on type, application, end-use industry, and region. Electrical & electronics is expected to play a key role in driving the overall halogen-free flame retardants market due to its use in almost every industry. It accounted for the largest market share in the global halogen-free flame retardants market in 2015. However, transportation is projected to be the fastest-growing application between 2016 and 2021. Aluminum hydroxide is the major type of halogen-free flame retardants owing to its low cost and easy availability.

In this report, market sizes have been derived using both bottom-up and top-down approaches. First, the market size for each type (aluminum hydroxide, organo-phosphorus chemicals, and others) for various regions (Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Central & Eastern Europe, North America, the Middle East & Africa, and South America) and countries have been identified using both secondary and primary research. The overall halogen-free flame retardants market sizes for various regions and countries have been calculated by adding these individual markets. Regional level halogen-free flame retardants market sizes have been further broken down on the basis application using percentage split gathered during the research. For future growth (CAGR) trends of the halogen-free flame retardants market, the application– polyolefin, epoxy resins, unsaturated polyesters, poly-vinyl chloride, engineering thermoplastic, rubber, and styrenics have been analyzed. Findings of this study were verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key officials such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. The breakdown of profiles of primary interviewees is illustrated in the below figure:

Market Ecosystem:

Halogen-free flame retardant is the mixture of polymer and base filler. Base filler is derived from metal hydroxides (aluminum and magnesium), phosphorus, nitrogen, zinc, and borates. The polymers are then added to get halogen-free flame retardants, which are further distributed amongst wholesale distributors, retailers, bulk consumers, OEMs, and others. These halogen-free flame retardants are used by the various end-use industries such as transportation, electrical & electronics, construction, and others (textile and furnishing). The major halogen-free flame retardants manufacturers are Clariant International Ltd. (Switzerland), Lanxess AG (Germany), Israel Chemical Ltd.

The market size of halogen-free flame retardant was USD 3.36 Billion in 2015 and is projected to register a CAGR of 8.4% between 2016 and 2021 to reach USD 5.38 Billion by 2021. The demand for halogen-free flame retardants will be driven by stringent environmental regulations and fire safety standards for residential and commercial buildings and various consumer electronics.

Non-halogenated flame retardants have applications in all types of polymers that are used in electrical & electronics (E&E), construction, automotive, and other industries. The polyolefin application is expected to be the major segment, followed by epoxy resin and unsaturated polyester (UPE). Polyolefin is the most widely used polymer and has a wide range of applications in all industries. Polyethylene and polypropylene are the most widely used polymers and their use is increasing in various consumer-centric industries. These polymers, when mixed with halogen-free flame retardants are mostly used for packaging, wires & cables, circuit boards, and various other uses to maintain fire resistance. The flourishing electrical & electronics (E&E) and automotive industries will catalyze the demand for epoxy resin application of halogen-free flame retardants.

Halogen-free flame retardants are used in various industries, the major industries being electrical & electronics, building & construction, and transportation. They are used in electric wire insulation materials, building materials, automotive parts, and textiles & home furnishings. Stringent fire safety standards to reduce the risk of fire spreading in residential & commercial buildings are driving the growth of halogen-free flame retardants. The halogen-free flame retardants market is driven by growing consumer electronics industries, coupled with stringent environmental regulations on the materials used in electronics manufacturing. Halogen-free flame retardants are used in circuit boards, electronic casing, and cables & wires.

North America is expected to dominate the halogen-free flame retardants market, followed by Western Europe. The stringent regulations in these regions regarding the use of safer chemicals in all industry products will drive the market for halogen-free flame retardants. The rising demand for safer consumer electronics and stringent fire safety regulations for residential & commercial building materials will drive the demand for halogen-free flame retardants. Non-halogenated flame retardants are used in textiles, home furnishings, and furniture to reduce the risk of fire hazard.

Globally, the halogen-free flame retardant market will be driven by stringent regulations regarding the use of safer and less hazardous substances. The various associations such as REACH (Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals), WEEE (Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment), RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), and SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern), have laid down regulations that will drive the demand for halogen-free flame retardants in various industries.

Halogen-Free Flame Retardants Market

With increasing consumer awareness toward fire safe products, halogen-free flame retardants are being used widely. The high loading levels of flame retardants in the polymer matrix has been a major restraint for the halogen-free flame retardants industry, as high concentration of retardants apparently changes the original properties of the polymer.

The competition in the halogen-free flame retardant market has increased with growing consumer awareness and stringent government regulations for fire resistant products. Clariant International Ltd.
