Access Full Summary at:

At present, the global flame retardants market witnesses vivid opportunities due to the increase in demand for flame retardant chemicals in a wide number of end use industries. Flame retardants such as polyolefin nanocomposites find major use in the automotive industry and other end user industries such as packaging, building and construction, appliances, electrical and electronics, tools and sporting equipment.

Flammable plastic materials are used in abundance in modern vehicles, foams, cables, textiles, polymer formulations for electronic applications as well as in mechanical parts. This pose a high range of fire risk. Hence, flame retardants are added to these materials to halt fires in mechanical, structural, and decorative components, such as electrical short circuits, mechanical faults, and overheating. Automotive industry is the largest consumer of brominated flame retardanthexabromocyclododecane (HBCDD). HBCDD is used for plastic cabinet and casings, insolation panels and automotive textiles. Furthermore, flame retardants are added to seats to ensure safety to passengers as small flames such as cigarettes and matches could prompt ignition.

Epoxy resins segment accounted for around one-fourth share, in terms of volume, in 2015. In response to the perennial modifications in the quality of flame retardants, efficient flame retardant chemicals are currently in high demand across the globe. Thus, increase in demand for high-tech flame retardants for epoxy resins along with increase in use of flame retardant rubber in automotive industry are some of the major drivers that fuel the demand for flame retardants across the globe.
