Global Flame Retardant Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A flame retardant is a chemical or additive that is used to make materials more resistant to catching fire and burning. Flame retardants are important because they can help prevent fires from spreading, which can cause injuries and damage property.


ATH or Alkyd Thermoplastic Hot Melt is a special type of synthetic rubber that is produced from the reaction between ethylene and propylene. It has high resistance to solvents, acids, and bases. The product finds application in various end-use industries such as automotive & transportation, construction materials (pipes & tanks), electrical insulation, furniture & furnishing and packaging among others.

Antimony Oxide:

Antimony oxide is a chemical compound of antimony and oxygen with formula Sb2O3. It is a white solid that dissolves in acids and alkalis. The pure form is usually found in nature as mineral species, stibnite, or tin(II) oxide.

Application Insights:

Building & construction was the largest application segment in 2016, accounting for over 40% of the overall market. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for steel and cement across the globe. In addition, rising awareness about safety is expected to drive demand further over the forecast period.

Electronics & appliances is estimated to grow at a CAGR of XX% from 2017 to 2018 owing to growing product usage in electronic devices such as smartphones and laptops coupled with rising consumer spending on entertainment systems such as flat-screen TVs and gaming consoles.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest and fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. The region accounted for a volume share of over 45% in 2016, which can be attributed to rapid industrialization and urbanization in developing economies such as China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam among others. Flame retardant products are widely used across various industries including automotive, building & construction materials due to its excellent performance against fire and heat.

The Asia Pacific market is also projected to witness significant growth on account of increasing foreign investments coupled with favorable government policies promoting manufacturing activities across various sectors such as textiles & fabrics; furniture; garments; footwear among others.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries: The global flame retardant market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period, owing to the increasing demand from end-use industries such as construction, automotive, and electrical & electronics.
  • Stringent government regulations: The growth of the flame retardant market is also driven by stringent government regulations for safety in various end-use industries. For instance, in Europe and North America, stringent flammability standards are imposed on various products such as furniture and textiles.
  • Rising awareness about fire safety: There has been a rise in awareness about fire safety among consumers due to increasing incidences of fires across different geographies. This has led to an increase in the adoption of flame retardants as a measure to prevent fires and protect lives and property losses..
