Report – Non-Halogenated Flame Retardants Market – Growth and Forecast to 2018

Reuters- 21.01.2014 :

The demand for non-halogenated flame retardants is expected to be majorly driven by growing environmental concerns regarding halogenated flame retardants. Non-halogenated flame retardants are environment friendly and certain non-halogenated flame retardants are as efficient as halogenated flame retardants.

This study covers the global non-halogenated flame retardant market for polymers. Flame retardants are used as additives in polymers to increase fire resistance in case of ignition or fire accidents. Owing to the high risk of fire accidents related with high usage of polymers in end-use industries such as construction, electrical and transportation, non-halogenated flame retardants are expected to have high demand in the near future. The market is segmented based on product types aluminum hydroxide (ATH), phosphorus based non-halogenated flame retardants and others (including nitrogen based flame retardants, magnesium hydroxide and others).

The report analyzes impacts of key market drivers and restraints on the global n market for the next five years. Increasing polymer usage in numerous industries is leading to high demand for flame retardant polymers, which is expected to drive the market for non-halogenated flame retardants. High loading levels and drawbacks in processability of non-halogenated flame retardants are expected to hinder the market growth in the coming years.

The market is also segmented in terms of end use industries and the study provides analysis and forecast of all key industries in the market. Construction, electrical, transportation, textile, furniture are major industries having applications of non-halogenated flame retardant polymers. In terms of application, the market is segmented into different polymers that are used in the end use industry. The report estimates and forecasts the global market of non-halogenated flame retardants for different polymers on the basis of volume (kilo tons) and revenue (USD million).

The study consists of value chain analysis for complete and better understanding of the market. The report also covers Porter’s five force model that analyzes market competition. The report provides analysis of the non-halogenated flame retardant market by various geographies – North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW).
