Flame Retardant Market

Flame Retardant Market by Type Halogenated (Antimony Oxide, Brominated, Others), Non-Halogenated (Aluminum Hydroxide, Magnesium Dihydroxide, Others), by Application (Epoxy, Polyolefins), and by End-use Industry (Building & Construction, Electronics & Appliances, Automotive, Others) – Global Trends & Forecast to 2023 

Report code: SDMRCH499858 | Industry: Chemicals & Materials | Published On: 7/6/2019

The total Flame Retardant market is anticipated to reach USD 13.1 billion by the end of 2023, growing at a CAGR of 6.3%. Rising urbanization, along with government initiatives to provide affordable housing is expected to drive the demand of these products in construction sector especially in developing nations. Continued robust economic growth and increasing market penetration of flame retardants in industrialized countries, and rising personal incomes is further expected to increase the demand of flame retarded plastic products.
In 2017, Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest market share in global flame retardant market accounting for more than 50% market share. It is further expected to grow at the fastest CAGR owning to growing use of flame retardants in China and India followed by Thailand. The demand of flame retardant in North America will rise at a faster pace as compared to other developed regions mainly due to reviving construction market of the US.


In 2017, Non-halogenated flame retardants market accounted for largest market share of 60% in terms of volume. This product segment is further expected to witness a highest CAGR of 6% in the forecast period owing to high regulations aimed at phasing out halogenated flame retardant usage. Aluminium hydroxide (ATH) accounted for the highest market volume within the non-halogenated product segment at 1 million tons in 2017, and is further expected to grow at an estimated CAGR of 5% during the forecast period.
Electrical & electronics segment is the leading end-user industry of flame retardants with a market of 40% in 2017 and is further expected to witness a highest CAGR of 5% during the forecast period 2018 to 2023. Building & Construction end-user industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.0% from 2018 to 2023 due to high use of flame retardant infused materials in structural insulations and elements.
Major market leaders are acquiring small companies to increase their footprint in the respective region. Companies are focusing more on product innovation to gain market share. Some of the market players active in the industry include Albemarle, BASF ICL, Chemtura, Clariant International Ltd., Italmatch Chemicals, Huber Engineered Materials, BASF, Thor Group Ltd., & DSM.
