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

Global demand for flame retardants is expected to climb 2.7 percent per year to 2.7 million metric tons in 2020. Slower growth in China will be offset by improved markets in India, Brazil and Eastern Europe,The Africa/Mideast region will register the most rapid gains of any region, though the Asia/Pacific region will remain the largest. Construction products, paced by China, will exhibit the fastest advances of the major markets, while phosphorus-based flame retardants will post by far the fastest growth of any major product type.

This Freedonia study analyzes the 2.3 million metric ton, $5.4 billion global flame retardant additives industry. The study provides historical demand data (2005, 2010, and 2015), plus forecasts (2020 and 2025) by product (alumina trihydrate, phosphorus compounds, brominated compounds, antimony compounds, boron compounds, chlorinated compounds) and market (construction, motor vehicles, electrical/electronic products, wire & cable, textiles). The study also provides company market share and competitive analysis on industry leaders including Albemarle, Chemtura, China Minmetals, Clariant International, Israel Chemicals, Jiangsu Yoke Technology, JM Huber, LANXESS, Nabaltec, US Borax (Rio Tinto), and Zhejiang Wansheng.
