World Flame Retardants


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

World Flame Retardants

Growth in the world flame retardants market will total 4.6% annually through 2018 in volume terms. Gains will be fueled by increasingly stringent fire safety regulations, particularly in developing countries. Strong growth in demand for plastic products worldwide will also benefit flame retardant sales

This report segments the world flame retardants industry by Product, Market, & Region. Data is provided in thousand metric tons and million dollars.

Flame Retardant Products include:
Alumina Trihydrate
Brominated Compounds
Phosphorus Compounds
Antimony Compounds
Chlorinated Compounds
Boron Compounds

Alumina trihydrate will remain the largest of these through 2018. Fastest growth will be for phosphorus compounds, driven by their increasing use as a replacement for halogenated flame retardant types.

Major Flame Retardant Markets include:
Construction
Wire & Cable
Electrical/Electronic
Motor Vehicles
Textiles

Construction was the leading outlet in 2013. Construction will also see the most rapid gains through 2018, fueled by an improved outlook for construction spending in North America and Western Europe.

World regions and countries covered in the study include:
North America
Western Europe
Asia/Pacific
Central & South America
Eastern Europe
Africa/Mideast

The Asia/Pacific region will see the strongest advances among world regions through 2018. China will continue to drive global growth, fueled by robust increases in construction activity and manufacturing output. Demand in North America will rebound from the declines posted during the last decade.

The world flame retardant industry includes several hundred companies, comprised primarily of specialty chemical companies and producers of metals and minerals. Major suppliers include Albemarle, Almatis, Campine, Chemtura, China Minmetals, Clariant International, Daihachi Chemical, Israel Chemicals, Jiangsu Yoke Technology, JM Huber, Martin Marietta Materials, Nabaltec, Rio Tinto Group, Shandong Haiwang Chemical, and Tosoh.
