Scope of The Flame Retardant Market Report:

The market players are accepting tactics such as capacity expansions, supply/distribution agreements, investments, mergers & acquisitions, product launches, technology transfers, and joint ventures to sustain their dominance in the flame-retardant market.

Flame retardants are substances that are included to other compounds, such as coatings, plastics, textiles, and foams, to stop ignition or hinder its spread and development, permitting more time for firefighters to intervene on site and users to escape. Flame retardants find broad applications in sectors such as building and construction, electrical and electronics, consumer goods, and transportation.

Non-halogenated and halogenated are the two wide segments of flame retardant market. Halogenated flame retardants are based on chlorine (paraffin) or bromide (polybrominated diphenyl ethers). They show outstanding flame retardancy but also result in environmental and health problems such as creation of toxic smoke of polychlorinated dibenzodioxins (PCDD) or polybrominated or polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDF), which lowers visibility. Different laws and directives by the WEEE directives, the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive), the Europe Union and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) have limited the employment of halogenated flame retardants. Halogen-free flame retardants are a feasible option as they provide similar technical and fire resistance application abilities with less smoke and fewer toxic components. The different kinds of halogen-free flame retardants are mineral flame retardants such as phosphorus-based flame retardants such as organic phosphorus, elemental phosphorus, and inorganic phosphorous; magnesium hydroxide, aluminum trihydrate, and zinc stearate; and nitrogen-based flame retardants such as melamine phosphate, melamine cyanurate, and melamine polyphosphate, among others.
