The demand for flame retardants is driven by the increase of infrastructure activities in the economies, such as India, China, Indonesia, and others, and the growing consumer demand for electrical & electronic products, across the world. Building & construction industry dominates the flame retardant chemicals market, with a significant share. The growing population, coupled with the increasing purchasing power among middle-class population in the developing economies such as India, South Korea, and ASEAN countries, has boosted the need for infrastructural projects such as recreational centers, shopping malls, sophisticated health care centers, high-rise buildings, and others, thus, accelerating the usage of flame retardant chemicals.
The growing demand and usage of flame retardant chemicals in the manufacture of consumer electrical & electronic goods are expected to boost the market growth.
The global market, based on type, has been segmented into non-halogenated flame retardants, such as inorganic compounds that include aluminum hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide, and boron compounds, phosphorus, nitrogen, and others, and halogenated flame retardants that include brominated and chlorinated compounds.
In terms of consumption, Asia-Pacific accounted for the major market share with almost 50% of the global market in 2017.
In Asia-Pacific, the major demand for flame retardant chemicals is from building & construction sector, as the construction industry is growing rapidly in the developing economies such as China, India, and ASEAN countries. In addition, the demand for flame retardant chemicals is increasing from electrical & electronics and transportation sector, with electrical & electronics segment being the fastest-growing application in the region.
In Apr 2017, LANXESS completed the acquisition of US-based Chemtura, a leading manufacturer of flame retardant chemicals. The acquisition is expected to aid LANXESS in expanding its consumer base, especially in North America, and China
In May 2017, LANXESS successfully completed a project to increase the capacity of its Emerald Innovation 3000 flame retardant production unit to increase the sustainable output from 10,000 to 14,000 MT per year
In Jun 2016, Nyacol Nano Technologies, Inc., a US-based firm operating in the research, development, and manufacturing of inorganic colloids and nanomaterials, launched a new series of non-halogenated flame retardant, namely, BurnEx 608
