Global Flame Retardants Market – Drivers, Opportunities, Trends & Forecasts up to 2020

Flame retardants are chemical substances which inhibit the spread of fire either by restricting the chemical reactions in the flame or by developing a protective surface around the material. Stringent regulations and improving fire safety standards across globe are driving the market of flame retardants. Rise in demand of flame retardants in the construction projects and electrical & electronics (E&E) industry are key contributors to further growth of the flame retardants market. Higher growth in economy in the developing countries and increased penetration has also resulted in the growth of the market.

Aluminum trihydroxide is the largest segment in the flame retardants followed by brominated compounds. Building & construction application sector leads the flame retardants market due to increasing construction projects in the developing countries and manufacturing base. Asia Pacific is the major contributor in the market with China being largest consumer of flame retardants across the globe. Some of the prominent companies operating in the market are Dow Chemical Company, Clariant, BASF SE, among many others.
