Flame Retardants

As Quoted In PIE Plastics Information Europe

US flame retardant demand will reverse declines and grow 2.7 percent annually through 2013. Alumina trihydrate will remain the most widely used type, while the best growth is expected for phosphorus-based products. Construction will continue as the largest end use, while the wire and cable and motor vehicle markets grow the fastest.

This study analyzes the 830 million pound US flame retardant industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by material, market (e.g., construction products, electrical and electronic products, wire and cable, motor vehicles, textiles) and product (e.g., alumina trihydrate, phosphorus compounds, brominated compounds, antimony trioxide, boron compounds).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 31 industry players, including Israel Chemicals, Chemtura and Albermarle.
