Global flame retardant demand will rise 6.1 percent annually through 2014. Gains will be driven by trends toward more stringent flammability standards in the developing world, and by the rising use of plastic products. The Asia/Pacific region will continue to be the largest and fastest-growing market.
This study analyzes the 1.7 million metric ton world flame retardant industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by product (e.g., alumina trihydrate, brominated compounds, phosphorus compounds, chlorinated compounds, antimony compounds, boron compounds), market (e.g., construction, electrical and electronics, wire and cable, motor vehicles, textiles), world region and for 18 countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 37 industry participants, including Albemarle, Israel Chemicals and Chemtura.
