Covered in this report
According to procurement analysts, there is a rise in the adoption of ammonium sulfate as a flame retardant. Today, buyers of fire and safety equipment increasingly prefer the use of ammonia as a flame retardant in their fire protection equipment. Ammonium sulfate is comparatively cheaper than other flame retardants such as monoammonium phosphate, ammonium chloride, and diammonium phosphate. Additionally, ammonium sulfate is highly effective as a flame retardant because it lowers the combustion temperature and increases the production of residue or char. This subsequently slows down the combustion process and effectively retards the spreading of fire. As a result, the increased adoption of ammonium sulfate in flame retardants, along with the growth of the global fire and safety equipment market, is expected to drive the demand for ammonium sulfate.
One of the procurement best practices for buyers is to implement third-party pre-shipment inspection and quality authentication practices. The adoption of third-party pre-shipment inspections and quality authentication process helps buyers achieve substantial cost savings as it eliminates the need for employing dedicated personnel for inspections at suppliers' locations. It also reduces post shipment complexities such as custom-related bottlenecks that may arise from wrong invoices or variations in product specifications.
