Key Drivers of Non-halogenated Flame Retardants Market for Polymers

Halogenated retardants are considered toxic. Owing to such reasons, several end-use industries are now shifting to the use of non-halogenated flame retardants. Flame retardants are popularly used as additives in polymers in order to increase the fire resistance during fire accidents or in case of ignition. The drive by fire safety regulations regarding risk of fire hazards in various end-use industries, including construction and electrical are also considered as one of another key growth factor for the global demand for non-halogenated flame retardants. Moreover, increasing polymer usage in multiple industries is also leading to high demand for flame retardant polymers.

Electrical Applications to Offer Lucrative Opportunities

Worldwide, the construction industry widely utilizes the non-halogenated flame retardants for paints, coatings, building materials, wires, and cable applications. The construction industry collectively accounted for ~46% market share in 2018. Similarly, the electrical industry is growing at a CAGR of ~8% for the period from 2019 to 2027 and is expected to be the upcoming fastest growing end-use industry due to the widespread use of non-halogenated flame retardants in electrical equipment. Engineering Thermoplastic (ETP) retardant demand is expected to surge due to its estimated growth rate of 8% CAGR from 2019 to 2027, whereas, Polyolefins accounted for 26% share of the market in 2018 and is likely to grow at a moderate rate over the forecast period.
