World Flame Retardants - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

World flame retardant demand will rise 4.6 percent annually through 2018 to 2.8 million metric tons. China will be the fastest growing market and remain the largest, while North America will outpace developed regions. Alumina trihydrate will remain the dominant flame retardant, while phosphorus-based types will grow the fastest.

This study analyzes the 2.2 million metric ton world flame retardant industry. It presents historical demand data (2003, 2008 and 2013) and forecasts (2018 and 2023) by product (e.g., alumina trihydrate, brominated compounds, phosphorus compounds, antimony compounds, chlorinated compounds, boron compounds), market (e.g., construction, wire and cable, electrical and electronics, 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 36 industry players, including Albermarle, Chemtura, and Israel Chemicals.
