“Government regulations giving momentum to innovation in technology drive the market”
The market size of halogen-free flame retardants is expected to reach USD 5.38 billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 8.4% between 2016 and 2021. Halogen-free flame retardants are used in different applications ranging from electrical & electronics to a number of large industries. There are three types of halogen-free flame retardants including aluminum hydroxide, organo-phosphorus chemicals, and others (nitrogen, magnesium hydroxide, zinc, and borate). The new regulatory guidelines imposed by government along with rising awareness among end users for fire safe products has a great impact in the growth of halogen-free flame retardants market. Due to the bio-accumulation effect of halogenated flame retardants in plants and living beings leading to health issues, there is an increasing shift toward use of less toxic and more environmentally friendly product lines.

“Polyolefin application to dominate the market”
The polyolefin application led the global halogen-free flame retardants market in 2015. The increasing use in electrical wires and cables, roofing, and automotive parts is keeping the polyolefin application ahead of other applications. However, the massive industrialization in the emerging regions such as Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa is influencing the growth of epoxy resins and unsaturated polyesters segment. Both of them have application in various industries such as building & construction materials, automotive, marine, wires & cables, and others.

“Asia-Pacific projected to be fastest-growing market during the forecast period”
Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth rate in the halogen-free flame retardants market, globally. Increasing environmental regulations imposed by government and industrial growth in the Asia-Pacific region led to the increasing demand of halogen-free flame retardants for automobiles and electrical & electronics industries

The market size of halogen-free flame retardant was USD 3.36 Billion in 2015 and is projected to register a CAGR of 8.4% between 2016 and 2021 to reach USD 5.38 Billion by 2021. The demand for halogen-free flame retardants will be driven by stringent environmental regulations and fire safety standards for residential and commercial buildings and various consumer electronics.

Non-halogenated flame retardants have applications in all types of polymers that are used in electrical & electronics (E&E), construction, automotive, and other industries. The polyolefin application is expected to be the major segment, followed by epoxy resin and unsaturated polyester (UPE). Polyolefin is the most widely used polymer and has a wide range of applications in all industries. Polyethylene and polypropylene are the most widely used polymers and their use is increasing in various consumer-centric industries. These polymers, when mixed with halogen-free flame retardants are mostly used for packaging, wires & cables, circuit boards, and various other uses to maintain fire resistance. The flourishing electrical & electronics (E&E) and automotive industries will catalyze the demand for epoxy resin application of halogen-free flame retardants.

Halogen-free flame retardants are used in various industries, the major industries being electrical & electronics, building & construction, and transportation. They are used in electric wire insulation materials, building materials, automotive parts, and textiles & home furnishings. Stringent fire safety standards to reduce the risk of fire spreading in residential & commercial buildings are driving the growth of halogen-free flame retardants. The halogen-free flame retardants market is driven by growing consumer electronics industries, coupled with stringent environmental regulations on the materials used in electronics manufacturing. Halogen-free flame retardants are used in circuit boards, electronic casing, and cables & wires.

North America is expected to dominate the halogen-free flame retardants market, followed by Western Europe. The stringent regulations in these regions regarding the use of safer chemicals in all industry products will drive the market for halogen-free flame retardants. The rising demand for safer consumer electronics and stringent fire safety regulations for residential & commercial building materials will drive the demand for halogen-free flame retardants. Non-halogenated flame retardants are used in textiles, home furnishings, and furniture to reduce the risk of fire hazard.

Globally, the halogen-free flame retardant market will be driven by stringent regulations regarding the use of safer and less hazardous substances. The various associations such as REACH (Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals), WEEE (Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment), RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), and SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern), have laid down regulations that will drive the demand for halogen-free flame retardants in various industries.

With increasing consumer awareness toward fire safe products, halogen-free flame retardants are being used widely. The high loading levels of flame retardants in the polymer matrix has been a major restraint for the halogen-free flame retardants industry, as high concentration of retardants apparently changes the original properties of the polymer.

The competition in the halogen-free flame retardant market has increased with growing consumer awareness and stringent government regulations for fire resistant products. Clariant International Ltd. (Switzerland) and Lanxess AG (Germany) focused on organic growth and launched various new products in the market. This strategy has led them to gain the consumer confidence of new-age innovation driven products. On the other hand, Israel Chemicals Ltd. (Israel) and Huber Engineered Materials (U.S.) have grown inorganically through acquisitions and expansions to cater to the increasing demand of halogen-free flame retardants.

Exteneded Description

“Government regulations giving momentum to innovation in technology drive the market”

The market size of halogen-free flame retardants is expected to reach USD 5.38 billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 8.4% between 2016 and 2021. Halogen-free flame retardants are used in different applications ranging from electrical & electronics to a number of large industries. There are three types of halogen-free flame retardants including aluminum hydroxide, organo-phosphorus chemicals, and others (nitrogen, magnesium hydroxide, zinc, and borate). The new regulatory guidelines imposed by government along with rising awareness among end users for fire safe products has a great impact in the growth of halogen-free flame retardants market. Due to the bio-accumulation effect of halogenated flame retardants in plants and living beings leading to health issues, there is an increasing shift toward use of less toxic and more environmentally friendly product lines.

“Polyolefin application to dominate the market”

The polyolefin application led the global halogen-free flame retardants market in 2015. The increasing use in electrical wires and cables, roofing, and automotive parts is keeping the polyolefin application ahead of other applications. However, the massive industrialization in the emerging regions such as Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa is influencing the growth of epoxy resins and unsaturated polyesters segment. Both of them have application in various industries such as building & construction materials, automotive, marine, wires & cables, and others.

“Asia-Pacific projected to be fastest-growing market during the forecast period”

Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth rate in the halogen-free flame retardants market, globally. Increasing environmental regulations imposed by government and industrial growth in the Asia-Pacific region led to the increasing demand of halogen-free flame retardants for automobiles and electrical & electronics industries
