Flame Retardants

US demand for flame retardants will rise three percent annually through 2011 driven by increasingly stringent fire codes and flammability requirements, especially in building materials and consumer products. Phosphorus-based types will grow the fastest| while brominated compounds will continue to lead the market in total value.

This study analyzes the $827 million US flame retardant industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1996| 2001 and 2006 and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by material (e.g.| plastics| adhesives and coatings| elastomers)| by market (e.g.| insulation| roofing| wire and cable| housings and conduit| motor vehicles| textiles)| and by product (e.g.| alumina trihydrate| phosphorus compounds| brominated compounds| boron compounds| antimony trioxide).

The study also considers market environment factors| details industry structure| evaluates company market share and profiles 27 leading competitors including Chemtura| Albemarle| Supresta| JM Huber| OxyChem| and US Borax.
