Transparency Market Research‘s insight:

Market Research Reports : According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research "Non-Halogenated Flame Retardants Market for Polymers  – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth and Forecast, 2012 – 2018," the demand for non-halogenated flame retardants was 1,077.8 kilo tons in 2011 and is expected to reach 1,730 kilo tons in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 7.1 % from 2012 to 2018. In terms of revenue, the market was valued at USD 1.26 billion in 2011 and is expected to reach USD 2.15 billion in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 8.1% from 2012 to 2018.

The global demand for non-halogenated flame retardants is expected to be driven by fire safety regulations concerning risk of fire hazards in end-use industries such as electrical and construction. Halogenated retardants are considered to be toxic and have adverse effects on human and animal life, owing to which end-use industries are now shifting towards non-halogenated flame retardants. However, issues in functional properties such as loading levels may restrain market demand in the coming years.
