Description


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).
The study profiles key players in the non-halogenated flame retardant market. These profiles include company introduction, SWOT analysis and financials of the company, business strategies and recent developments. Key players in the market include Albemarle, ICL, Clariant, Chemtura, Nabaltec AG and more.

Market Overview



Flame retardants are additives used in polymers to increase its fire resistance in case of ignition and to slow down fire spread. Flame retardants do not make a polymer non-combustible but only help to resist fire and generate less heat. With increasing use of polymers in various industries such as electronics, building and construction, transportation, textiles and more, demand for flame retardants is expected to grow globally.

Flame retardants are additives used in polymers to increase its fire resistance in case of ignition and to slow down fire spread. Flame retardants do not make a polymer non-combustible but only help to resist fire and generate less heat. With increasing use of polymers in various industries such as electronics, building and construction, transportation, textiles and more, demand for flame retardants is expected to grow globally. Fire safety regulations and environmental regulations for halogenated flame retardants are two of the major regulations prevailing in the industry that have a dramatic impact on the global market of flame retardants. 

Owing to the changing scenario of growing environmental awareness in developed regions such as Europe and North America, stringent rules are implemented regarding production and import of products containing halogenated flame retardants. These rules are expected to have a direct impact on emerging countries such as China, Malaysia, Indonesia and India which are exporting substantial number of end-use products containing flame retardant polymers to Europe and the U.S. Hence the market for non-halogenated flame retardants is expected to grow in Asia Pacific in the coming years.

The value chain of non-halogenated flame retardant includes raw material suppliers, flame retardant manufacturers, polymer manufacturers and end-use industries. Few market players such as Chemtura and Nabaltec AG produce their own raw materials (aluminum and phosphorus), which are further used for production of non-halogenated flame retardants. 

Key product segments in the non-halogenated flame retardants market include aluminum hydroxide (ATH) and phosphorus based flame retardants along with others such as nitrogen based flame retardants, magnesium hydroxide. ATH is an inexpensive non-halogenated flame retardant which finds application in electrical appliances, automobiles and construction. ATH accounted for approximately 70% of the global demand of non-halogenated flame retardants in 2012. Major demand was from developed nations such as Europe and North America. Phosphorus based non-halogenated flame retardants are expected to be fastest growing segment in the coming years owing to its mechanical properties, processablilty, and cost efficiency. 

Construction, electrical and transportation are the major end-use industries for non-halogenated flame retardants, owing to the high degree of fire hazard risk associated with them. Construction industry, which includes building materials, coatings, cables and wires, accounted for 41.4% market share, in terms of volumes of the global non-halogenated flame retardants in 2012. The demand from electrical industry is expected to have highest compounded annual growth rate of 7.6% over the period from 2012 to 2018.

Polyolefins, including polyethylene and polypropylene, accounted for 23.1 % market share, in terms of volume of global non-halogenated flame retardants in 2012. Epoxy resins were the second biggest type consuming non-halogenated flame retardants which accounted for 21.0% share of the global market in 2012. Unsaturated polyester (UPE) was another major application that accounted for 19.0% of the global market share in 2012. Engineering thermoplastics segment is expected be the fastest growing application of non-halogenated flame retardants which accounted for 8.1% of the global market in 2012 and are expected to reach 8.3% share by 2018.

The global market of non-halogenated flame retardants has top four market players accounting for more than 40% market share, by volumes in 2011. The top three companies are majorly engaged in production of mineral based non-halogenated flame retardants such as aluminum hydroxide and magnesium hydroxide. Other players in the market include Chemtura Corporation, Clariant International Ltd., Italmatch, BASF AG and more.
