Flame Retardants

As Quoted In Trans World News

Robust gains in building construction -- particularly for new housing -- as well as in other closely associated markets such as wire and cable, and home furnishings, will drive advances.

US demand to expand 6% annually through 2016

US demand for flame retardants will expand 6.0 percent per year to 1.1 billion pounds in 2016. Robust gains in building construction -- particularly for new housing -- as well as in other closely associated markets such as wire and cable, and home furnishings, will drive advances. Stringent fire codes and flammability requirements, especially in building materials and consumer products, will also support flame retardant sales. However, health concerns about some flame retardant chemicals will limit faster increases, particularly for halogenated flame retardants, some of which are being voluntarily phased out by the industry despite their effectiveness.

Construction markets to show best opportunities

One of the most important factors affecting flame retardant demand in the US is building construction spending, with the construction market alone accounting for 38 percent of total flame retardant demand by volume in 2011. Double-digit annual growth in both residential and nonresidential building spending through 2016 will lead to robust gains for flame retardants in insulation materials such as cellulose, foamed polyurethane, and polystyrene, as well as PVC and other materials used in flooring, panels, piping, and other construction products. Other flame retardant markets are also heavily impacted by building construction, including textiles (e.g., carpets, curtains, and rugs), insulated wire and cable (e.g., building wiring, connectivity wiring), and furniture and mattresses.

The ongoing rebound in the US motor vehicle industry will also have a positive impact on flame retardant demand. Rising vehicle production levels, the increased use of lighter weight plastic and composite materials that offer improved fuel efficiency, and elevated temperatures in under-the-hood applications due to smaller, hotter running engines will all contribute to increasing motor vehicle flame retardant demand. Efforts by Boeing and Airbus to improve airplane fuel efficiency through the increased use of composites and other plastics, along with the industry’s strict flame retardance standards, will drive gains in the aerospace market.

Boron compounds to register fastest growth

With new residential building construction driving rapid increases in cellulosic insulation demand, boron compounds will register the fastest growth going forward. Alumina trihydrate will achieve strong gains as well and remain the most significant flame retardant by volume, representing 39 percent of demand in 2016. Non-halogenated phosphorus compounds and other types with more environmentally friendly profiles will benefit from industry efforts to forestall increased regulatory scrutiny.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the 816 million pound US flame retardant industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by material (e.g., thermoplastics, thermosets), market (e.g., construction products, electrical and electronic products, wire and cable, motor vehicles, textiles, aircraft and aerospace) and product (e.g., alumina trihydrate, boron compounds, phosphorus compounds, brominated compounds, antimony trioxide, chlorinated compounds).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 33 industry players, including Chemtura, Albemarle, and Israel Chemicals.
