These products are used in thermosets, thermoplastics, paints & coatings building & construction, adhesives, and various other forms of plastics such as, textiles, coatings polyolefin and PVC. Key flame retardant chemicals type include, brominated, chlorinated, organophoshorus, nitrogen, aluminium hydroxide and antimony oxide.
Rise in fire safety norms in construction and automobile industries may stimulate product demand. Increase in construction spending particularly in Asia Pacific may drive product demand. China construction spending was over USD 1.7 trillion in 2014, followed by Japan and India with over USD 739 billion and USD 421 billion respectively in the same year. North America demand may rise at a faster pace than other developed regions due to a forecast rebound in the US construction market, but will remain below the global average.
Flame retardant chemicals market may witness strong growth in construction applications up to 2023. Construction application may account for over 25% of the overall volume by 2023. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) regulated fire safety standards in the U.S., Similarly, The Confederation of Fire Protection Association (CFPA) lays out the fire safety & resistance standards for building construction in Europe. These norms are the propelling factors for product demand to rise.
Increasing plastic usage for automobile production owing to growing fuel efficiency demand and limiting carbon emissions may favour flame retardant chemicals demand. Automobile sale recorded over 85 million units in 2014 and is forecast to register 100 million units by 2018.
Indonesia and Thailand are likely to witness an increase in automobile production owing to favourable government policies for OEMs, which may drive product demand.
In Electrical & electronics (E&E) applications, the product supports in the production of laptops, cell phones, battery chargers, refrigerators, washers, dryers and vacuum cleaners. This may enhance flame retardant chemicals market size.
Flame retardant chemicals market size may rise owing to increase in manufacturing output, especially in Europe, U.S. and Japan with expected recovery post economic downturn. Stringent regulations owing to environmental hazards may restrict flame retardant chemicals market growth. However, eco friendly product developments may pave opportunities for market development.
Non halogenated flame retardant chemicals are attaining more consideration as they are environmental friendly. It results in the downfall halogenated product demand as they contain highly toxic. This is observed in North America and Europe owing to stringent rules and regulations.
Global non halogenated flame retardants market is expected to reach USD 2.5 billion by 2023 and it is expected that halogen based products will be banned keeping in the concern of human health and environmental hazards.
The industry in the current scenario is facing issues with the increase in raw material and manufacturing cost. This factor may impact flame retardant market price trends.
Global flame retardants market share is fairly competitive and comprises of MNCs. Notable industry participants include Dow Chemical, Clariant, Lanxess, BASF, Akzo Nobel, Albemarle and DuPont.
