Flame retardant chemicals are additive used to increase fire resistance of materials when they are exposed to ignition or fire spread. Non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals are based on aluminum, magnesium, boron, antimony-based oxides and hydroxides, phosphorus, nitrogen, etc. These chemicals are environment-friendly as compared to halogenated flame retardant chemicals, and can be used in polymers as an additive to increase the fire resistance.
Soaring Demand in Infrastructure Sector
Growing infrastructure activities in APAC countries is driving the market. Owing to emergent business opportunities in countries, such as India, China, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Asia-Pacific is gradually becoming a new business hub. The demand for high-rise buildings and business infrastructure is increasing in this region. The rise in tourism is expected to increase, which will augment the demand for non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals.
Phosphorus Segment to Dominate the Market
The phosphorus segment dominated the global market with a share of 47.01%, this segment is also expected to witness the highest CAGR of 8.16%. Red phosphorus is an effective flame retardant used in the form of polyamides, polycarbonates and polyesters owing to its thermal stability and non-toxic nature. With growing concerns over harmful nature of halogen-based flame retardants, much research is now focused toward halogen-free flame retardants, which has led to the development of various aromatic phosphates.
North AmericaRegion to Lead the Market
North America is expected to be the largest markets, followed by Europeand Asia-Pacific. The boom in the real estate industry in the current scenario is driving the industry. The construction industry in United States is also recovering at a good rate. Investments have been majorly in residential/non-residential buildings and public infrastructure. The electronics industry in the United States is declining, however, the electronic hardware market is experiencing good growth. This is expected to add to the demand for non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals market.
