Flame Retardants Market

Flame Retardants Market by Type (Aluminum Trihydrate, Antimony Oxide, Brominated), Application (Epoxy, Polyolefin, Unsaturated Polyester), End-Use Industry (Building & Construction, Electronics & Appliances) and Region- Global Forecast to 2027

Report Code: CH 2626 Apr, 2022, by marketsandmarkets.com

[304 Pages Report] The global flame retardants market is estimated to be USD 7.2 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. Flame retardants are key components used for reducing the devastating impact of fires on people, property, and the environment. The 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 growth of the market is mainly triggered by the growth of end-use industries and increasing regulations for fire safety. To reduce fire-related hazards in various sectors, the demand for flame retardants is increasing. End-use industries like building & construction, automotive, and electronics have some stringent fire safety standards to which manufacturers must adhere. In addition, the growing use of plastic in every sector due to its favorable characteristics is further boosting the market for flame retardants. The major restraints for market growth are the environmental and health concerns restricting the growth of conventional flame retardants like brominated and chlorinated flame retardants. This has propelled the demand for more environment friendly flame retardants like phosphorous and nitrogen. Rapid development in countries like India, China, and Mexico to further drive the market during the forecast period.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Strict fire safety guidelines to increase demand for flame retardants in various applications

The growing number of residential and commercial establishments has increased the chances of explosions and fire-related accidents. Due to this, several countries across North America and Europe have mandated strict fire safety regulations and protocols. This has led to the increased use of flame retardants in buildings to meet these government regulations. Bodies such as National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and International Code Council have framed regulations for fire safety due to the growing consumer demand for homes, electronics, and automobiles. The EU’s green deal and the subsequent chemical strategy for sustainability were introduced in October 2020 to support halogen-free fla me retardants (HFFRs) and smoke suppressants. A few codes given by NFPA, which can be related to flame retardants, are listed in the table below.

Restraints: High loading levels of mineral-based flame retardants altering the properties of final products

One of the biggest drawbacks of flame retardants is the high loading levels associated with mineral-based flame retardants. Mineral fillers such as aluminum, magnesium hydroxide, and magnesium carbonate are endothermically decomposable and environmentally benign flame retardants. Retardants used as fillers are loaded in large quantities in the polymer matrix to ensure flame retardation. These minerals are usually inexpensive but require higher loadings of up to 65% when used in flame retardants. However, this excessive loading of mineral fillers increases the density and reduces the mechanical properties (thermal stability) of the final product. This reduced property of flame retardants can be a restraint for the market growth of flame retardants.

Opportunities: Development of more effective synergist compounds

To boost the performance of flame retardants, compounds such as bromine, nitrogen, phosphorus, and zinc are added to the polymer blends in higher amounts. When mineral fillers with high loadings are added to flame retardants, they tend to decrease the properties of flame retardants. To overcome this, synergist compounds with polymer blends are introduced, which help in boosting the performance of flame retardants. With the combination of such blends in a polymer matrix, the effect is found to be more efficient than compounds acting separately. Synergist blends reduce the amount of halogenated flame retardants by percent weight, reduce toxicity, and improve the retardant properties.

Challenges: Supply challenges from Asia Pacific

Producers of phosphorus and PN (phosphorus nitrogen) flame retardant additives have suffered from the Chinese government’s decision in 2020 to curtail power to several provinces. This has caused ripples through numerous supply chains, one of them being the energy-intensive production of white or yellow phosphorus (P4), It was estimated that around one-third of the capacity had been taken out, leading to prices more than tripling at one point in late summer/early autumn of 2021. According to the CEO of FRX Polymers, over 90% of halogen-free flame retardants (HFFRs) are based on P4. This decision can impact the market in the Asia Pacific region and the market dependent on it.

Epoxy was the largest application for flame retardants market in 2021”

Epoxy accounted for the largest market share, in terms of volume, of the global flame retardants market in 2021. Epoxy is extensively used in the electronics and automotive industries. It is used in integrated circuits, transistors, and hybrid circuits. Electronic equipment needs protection against fire, which may be caused due to short circuit. Thus, the use of flame retardants in electronics is inevitable. Epoxy has a wide range of applications which includes fiber-reinforced plastic materials, high-tension electrical insulators, paint brushes, electrical components, LEDs, and adhesives for structural purposes.

“Electronics & appliances was the largest end-use industry for flame retardants market in 2022”

The growing use of plastic resins to manufacture electronic parts is rising the necessity to meet fire safety guidelines for the manufacturers. Regions like Europe and North America have very stringent standards regarding the fire safety of electronic items and parts. All these factors are contributing to the higher consumption of flame retardants in the electronics & appliances segment. Electronic appliances are subjected to fire risks; therefore, they must meet fire safety regulations. The regulatory bodies, such as NFPA (US), DIN (Germany), BS (UK), lay down the guidelines to incorporate flame retardants in the products. This boosts the demand for flame retardants in the electrical & electronics industry. These factors, along with the rising awareness regarding fire safety, are collectively driving the electrical & electronics industry, thus boosting the demand for flame retardants at the global as well as regional levels.

“Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest consumer for flame retardants during the forecast period, in terms of value and volume.”

Asia Pacific comprises major emerging nations such as China and India. Hence, the scope for the development of most industries is high in this region. The flame retardants market is growing significantly and offers opportunities for various manufacturers. The region constitutes approximately 61.0% of the world’s population, and the manufacturing and processing sectors are growing rapidly in the region. Asia Pacific is the largest flame retardants market with China being the major market which is expected to grow significantly. The rising population in the region with growing disposable income is further increasing the demand in various sectors like building & construction, electronics & appliances, and automotive & transportation. All these factors are driving the flame retardants market in the region.
