Introduction

Flame retardant chemicals are those compounds that are added to other compounds to prevent the spread of fire. The major end-user markets for flame retardant chemicals are building and construction, electrical and electronics, transportation, textiles, and furniture. Rising construction activities and growing demand for electrical and electronic products have increased the demand for flame retardant chemicals across the industry. Growing awareness about the environment and health concerns and rising awareness about eco-friendly flame retardants are anticipated to drive the demand for flame retardant chemicals, which is expected to drive the overall market growth. Furthermore, the growing use of bio-based flame retardants is further going to unlock growth opportunities for manufacturers to increase their profit margins by introducing environment-friendly flame retardant chemicals. Due to the rising construction activities and increasing demand for electronics across countries like Taiwan and South Korea, Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global flame retardant chemicals market. India is expected to have the third-largest construction business market by 2025. The real estate industry in India is expected to reach $1 Tn by 2030 and contribute to 13% of GDP (Source: Invest India). The most widely used flame retardant chemicals are-  polybrominated diphenyl ethers,  tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA), and organophosphate flame retardants. Moreover, the shortage of raw materials and their hazardous impact on health and the environment are expected to hinder the growth of the market in the coming years.

  • Market Development and News  Albemarle Corporation have signed an agreement to sell its Mineral Flame Retardants and Specialty Chemicals businesses to Huber Engineered Materials.
  • J.M. Huber Corp. has signed a definitive agreement with RHI Magnesita (RHIM) in order to acquire their 50% ownership stake in the companies’ non-halogenated flame retardant 50/50 joint venture.

Market Drivers

  • The increasing application of these chemicals in the construction industry

One of the primary reasons driving the market's growth is the continually increasing demand from the end-user industries, especially in building and construction. Due to strict fire safety regulations, there is a high demand for flame retardant chemicals in the construction sector.  In residential and commercial buildings, flame retardants are mostly used in structural insulation.  Many residential, as well as commercial sectors, use insulators because of their higher energy efficiency and low utility costs. Increasingly strict rules and regulations related to the various fire standards around the world are anticipated to further drive market growth. For example, in  European countries, all materials that are used for construction purposes, including flame retardant chemicals, must meet certain specifications for fire requirements according to EN 13501. In the United States, all the material has to be tested according to ASTM E 84. The increasing investments in the construction industry are also expected to play a major role in the market growth, during the forecast period. According to the U.S Department of Commerce’s Census Bureau, around 50% of construction spending in the United States is generated from the housing sector. In the month of October 2020, US$1.48 trillion was spent on construction, out of which US$646 billion was spent in the housing and residential segment. In India, the government launched a program to build housing for all by the year 2022, which is expected to drive the market in the coming years. The government of India has set up a fund for housing, under the National Housing Bank. The continuous spending in the housing and residential sector is expected to drive market growth. China is one of the major economies, which is expected to drive the market in the coming years. According to the National Development and Reform Commission, the construction of major projects in the country has surged in recent years, from waterways, and highways to residential projects. In May 2020, according to official data, bonds worth US$ 150 billion, were issued by the regional and local governments in the country.

COVID–19's Impact on the Flame Retardant Chemicals Market: The COVID-19 pandemic, however, is expected to act as a restraint to this market growth because of the pandemic, several countries around the world went into lockdown, which completely disrupted its demand. Also, work stoppages, labor shortages, and preventive quarantines to curb the spread of the virus are expected to have a negative impact on the market.
