This study covers the global non-halogenated flame retardant market for polymers. Flame retardants are used as additives in polymers to increase fire resistance in case of ignition or fire accidents. Owing to the high risk of fire accidents related with high usage of polymers in end-use industries such as construction, electrical and transportation, non-halogenated flame retardants are expected to have high demand in the near future. The non-halogenated flame retardant market is segmented based on product types aluminum hydroxide (ATH), phosphorus based non-halogenated flame retardants and others (including nitrogen based flame retardants, magnesium hydroxide and others).
The report analyzes impacts of key market drivers and restraints on the global non-halogenated flame retardant market for the next five years. Increasing polymer usage in numerous industries is leading to high demand for flame retardant polymers, which is expected to drive the market for non-halogenated flame retardants. High loading levels and drawbacks in processability of non-halogenated flame retardants are expected to hinder the market growth in the coming years.
The non-halogenated flame retardant market is also segmented in terms of end use industries and the study provides analysis and forecast of all key industries in the market. Construction, electrical, transportation, textile, furniture are major industries having applications of non-halogenated flame retardant polymers. In terms of application, the market is segmented into different polymers that are used in the end use industry. The non-halogenated flame retardant report is segmented based on key polymers such as polyolefin, epoxy resin, unsaturated polyester, PVC, Engineering thermoplastics, rubber, styrenics and others (polyurethane, synthetic fibers, etc.).
