Apr 2015| CHM014M| BCC Publishing

Report Highlights

The global consumption of flame retardant chemicals reached nearly 3.9 billion pounds and nearly 4.2 billion pounds in 2013 and 2014, respectively. Consumption is expected to reach a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7%, increasing to a total of 5.7 billion pounds in 2019.

Report Includes

  • An overview of the global market for flame-retardant chemicals, with coverage of plastics, textiles, wood/paper, coatings/paper, coatings/construction, and coatings/decorations market applications.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2013 and 2014 and projections of CAGRs through 2019.
  • Reviews of government regulations and their impact on the market, as they obligate manufacturers to add flame-retardant chemicals to a wide range of products used every day.
  • Discussion of industry structure, including major suppliers.
  • Evaluations of chemicals by retardant mechanism, by chemical type, and by end-use application.
  • Analysis of the market's dynamics, specifically growth drivers, inhibitors, and opportunities.

SCOPE OF REPORT

This study is an in-depth evaluation of flame retardant chemicals by type and by end-use application. Because electronics are so widely used in the world today and they are housed most often in plastics, this application will be emphasized. Brief historical data along with current market data will be provided. This data will be interpreted and extrapolated against the expected future demand based upon impending regulations and projected demand of end-use products to estimate the five-year forecast. The forecast will cover worldwide demand and be broken down by chemical type and application.

Report Highlights

  • The global market for flame-retardant chemicals was worth $4.1 billion in 2008 and a projected $4.3 billion in 2009. It should reach $6.1 billion by 2014, for a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.0%.
  • The global fl ameretardant chemicals industry used 3.2 billion pounds of materials in 2008. This is expected to increase to 3.4 billion pounds in 2009, and 4.3 billion pounds in 2014, for a CAGR of 5.0%.
  • Studies have shown that a burning room containing fl ameretardant products releases 75% less heat and 33% fewer toxic gases than a room that lacks the products.

Report Highlights

  • The 2005 projected consumption of flame retardant chemicals worldwide is 2.9 billion pounds. BCC estimates this volume will grow 3.5% annually and reach 3.4 billion pounds worldwide by 2010.
  • Price increases for most products, except alumina trihydrate, should impact the average annual growth rate of the market’s sales. In 2005, sales are estimated to be approximately $3.5 billion worldwide. This figure should reach $4.6 billion by 2010 with an average annual growth rate of 5.6%.
  • The continuation of fire safety standards in the U.S. and abroad should impact the sales increase. Additionally, the largest country in the world, China, has opened its borders to Western products, providing new opportunities for companies with the ability to do business in the region. Environmental and health concerns over halogenated flame retardant chemicals should also allow additional market share for halogen replacements.
