Flame Retardant Chemicals Market Growth, Trends, Forecast and Value Chain 2015-2020
Deerfield Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/18/2016 -- Zion Research has published a new report titled "Flame Retardant Chemicals (Aluminum Trihydrate (ATH), Antimony Oxides, Bromine, Chlorine, Organophosphorus and Others) Market for Building & Construction, Electronics, Automotive & Transportation, Wires & Cables, Textiles, and Other End-users: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2014 - 2020". According to the report, the global flame retardant chemicals market was valued at approximately USD 6.0 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach USD 10.0 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of around 10% between 2015 and 2020. In terms of volume, global flame retardant chemicals market stood at 2.5 million tons in 2014.
Flame retardant chemicals are additives added to manufactured materials, such as plastics and textiles, and surface finishes and coatings that inhibit, suppress, or delay the production of flames to prevent the spread of fire. They may be mixed with the base material (additive flame retardants) or chemically bonded to it (reactive flame retardants). Flame retardants are combination of a variety of different chemicals with different properties and structures that act as flame retardant. Flame retardants are designed to minimize the risk of a fire from starting and limit the spread of fire. Flame retardant chemicals are generally used to treat flammable materials such as textile and polymers. Some of the most widely used flame retardant chemicals include bromine, phosphorus, nitrogen and chlorine. Some inorganic compounds are also used as a flame retardant, either alone or as part of a flame retardant system in combination with bromine, phosphorus or chlorine. Flame retardant chemicals can be generally classified as halogenated and non-halogenated flame retardants.
