The Global Alumina Trihydrate (ATH) Flame Retardant Market 2015-2020: Trends, Forecast, and Opportunity Analysis, March 2016
According to a new market report published by flame retardant market looks good with opportunities in the electrical and electronics, building andconstruction, and wire and cable industries. The global ATH flame retardant market is forecast togrow at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2015 to 2020. The major drivers of growth for this market are stringentgovernmental regulations related to prohibition on use of halogenated flame retardants, growingawareness on fire safety, and increasing market penetration of ATH flame retardants in variousend-use industries.
ATH flame retardants are used in a variety of applications with materials like polyolefin, epoxy,rubber, unsaturated polyester resin, polyvinyl chloride, and others. Lucintel predicts that thedemand for polyolefin is likely to experience the highest growth in the forecast period supported bygrowing demand in end product manufacturing. On the basis of comprehensive research, Lucintelforecasts that wire and cable segment is expected to show highest growth during the forecastperiod.
Within the ATH flame retardant market, the building and construction segment is expected toemerge as the largest market by value. The changes in regulatory requirement and strong demandof halogen free flame retardants are expected to spur growth for this segment over the forecastperiod.
North America is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume both due to growth inend use applications and wider acceptance of ATH flame retardants in various end-use industries.
Asia Pacific and the Rest of the World are expected to witness significant growth over the forecastperiod because of growing awareness on fire safety, and restriction on some halogenated flameretardants.
For market expansion, report suggests innovation and new product development, where the uniquecharacteristics of ATH flame retardants can be capitalized. The report further suggests thedevelopment of partnerships with customers to create win-win situations and development of lowcostsolutions for the end user.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include the growingconsumption of nano-particle ATH and original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s) commitmentstowards the use of non-halogenated flame retardants. Nabaltec AG, Albemarle Corporation, Huber
Engineered Materials, and TOR Minerals are among the major suppliers of the ATH flameretardants. Some companies are opting for M&A as a strategic initiative for driving growth.
