Flame retardants are key components used in reducing the devastating effect of fire mishaps on people, property, and the environment. Most common elements used as flame retardants are bromine, chlorine, and phosphorous. The compounds of these elements are added to or treat potentially flammable materials. Flame retardants stop the fire by interacting with the fire cycle in the gaseous phase and stop the chemical chain reaction. The flame retardants acts in two ways; they either prevent the fire from starting or slow it down significantly. The flame retardant market is projected to reach USD 12.81 Billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 6.4% between 2016 and 2021.

The flame retardant market is analyzed with respect to type, application, end-use industry, and region. Aluminum Trihydrate (ATH), antimony oxide, brominated, chlorinated, and phosphorous are the major types of flame retardants used in the industry. ATH dominated the flame retardant market, with Asia-Pacific as the largest market in 2015, and the trend is estimated to remain same during the forecast period. Western Europe and North America are the second largest markets for ATH flame retardants. The main reasons for growth of ATH are low cost and less environmental impact in comparison to certain flame retardants. Brominated flame retardants are projected to witness a moderate growth in North America and Europe owing to stringent environmental regulations imposed to curb the issues pertaining to toxicity.

Building & construction, electronics & appliances, and wires & cables are the major end-use industries of flame retardants. Building & construction is the largest end-use industry for flame retardants. The demand for flame retardants in building & construction is mostly driven by the increasing regulations concerning the safety of environment and human health in Europe and North America. Building & construction in Asia-Pacific will account for the maximum share in the flame retardants market owing to the demand from developing economies in the region and rapid investments in the infrastructure sector.

Asia-Pacific is the largest market for flame retardants. The region is projected to register the highest growth owing to vast potential that can be realized in near future because of increasing safety concerns and growth of various end-use industries in the developing economies in the region. Brominated flame retardants dominates the Asia-Pacific market owing to their inevitable use in the electronics industry, which is backed by their high efficiency and chemically inert nature. China, Taiwan, and South Korea are the leading players at the global level.

Flame Retardant Market

The leading players in the flame retardant market include Albemarle (U.S.), ICL (Israel), Clariant (Switzerland), Lanxess (Germany), Nabaltec (Germany), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), BASF (Germany), Akzo Nobel (Netherlands), Italmatch (Italy), and Huber Engineered Materials (U.S.).
