Non Halogenated Flame Retardants Market update

Non-Halogenated Flame Retardants Market to witness appreciable growth from automotive applications, Asia Pacific to prominently drive the regional landscape

Posted on

With immense application scope across the automotive sector, Non-Halogenated Flame Retardants Market is undoubtedly anticipated to carve a positive growth chart over the coming years. Polymeric materials have been experiencing massive demand in automobiles since the past few years, driven by the deployment of polymers in vehicles as a substitute of steel to increase their aesthetic appeal, function ability, and fuel efficiency. The use of polymers results in reduction of vehicle weight almost up to 10% which ultimately results in fuel optimization. However, various toxicity concerns associated with the product may hamper the non-halogenated flame retardants market expansion over the years. To combat these restraints, market players have been heavily investing in R&D activities to manufacture environmentally viable polymers. As per a report by Global Market Insights Inc., “Non-halogenated flame retardants market is poised to exceed a revenue of USD 3.4 billion by the end of 2024, with a projected CAGR of 8% over 2016-2024.”

Worldwide consumption of polyolefins has significantly increased lately, which is leaving a subsequent impact on non-halogenated flame retardants market. Halogen free polyolefins including LDPE, PE, PP, EVA, LLPE, and MDPE are widely deployed in the manufacturing of electric wires and cables and also in transportation and construction sector. On these grounds, polyolefins applications in the forthcoming years are projected to witness an appreciable growth at 7% CAGR over 2016-2024. Rapid industrial growth has led to an increasing demand for high-quality coatings, which substantially escalates non-halogenated flame retardants market demand from epoxy resin application. As per estimates, this application is forecast to witness gains at around 7% CAGR over 2016-2024.

Considering the geographical trends, Asia Pacific has always been a frontrunner in the global non-halogenated flame retardants industry. The expanding automotive production base is one of the prime factors responsible for the regional growth. In addition to this, the region is observing escalating spending across construction and packaging sectors, subject to the rise in disposable incomes in developing nations like India, China, and Japan. As per record, in 2015, 40% of APAC construction spending was centered around China. On these grounds, APAC global non-halogenated flame retardants market is predicted to grow at an annual rate of 8% over the coming seven years.

Worldwide non-halogenated flame retardants industry is highly consolidated with leading four companies covering 30% of the global share. Stringent regulatory compliance with regard to product toxicity and ecological effects enforced by renowned environmental agencies like REACH and WEEE is likely to add a renewed dynamism to non-halogenated flame retardants market in the years ahead. Industry players have been increasingly investing in research activities to broaden the product portfolio. Some of the key participants include Nabaltec, BASF Albermarle, Israel Chemicals, Chemtura, Clariant, and Italmatch Chemicals, and Huber.
