Flame retardant chemicals are additives that are incorporated into various materials, such as plastics, textiles, and coatings, to decrease their flammability and slow down the spread of fire. Non-halogenated flame retardants are a type of flame retardant chemicals that do not contain halogens, such as chlorine, bromine, or fluorine, in their chemical structure. In the past few years, the demand for non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals has witnessed a significant surge. This is primarily due to growing concerns over the environmental and health impacts of halogenated flame retardants. Non-halogenated flame retardants are considered to be safer for human health and more environmentally friendly as they do not release toxic gases or persist in the environment.
The global non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals market is expected to witness significant growth during the projected period, driven by factors such as increasing demand for flame retardant materials in various industries, growing concerns over fire safety, and regulatory measures aimed at reducing the use of halogenated flame retardants. However, the high cost and performance limitations compared to halogenated flame retardants may pose a challenge to the growth of the non-halogen.
The non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals market is driven by increasing demand for flame retardant materials and regulatory measures.
The demand for flame retardant materials is increasing across various industries. For example, the construction industry is using flame-retardant materials in building insulation, electrical wiring, and other components to reduce the risk of fire. In the automotive industry, flame-retardant materials are used in vehicle interiors, such as seats, dashboards, and door panels. In the electronics industry, flame-retardant materials are used in electronic devices, such as computers, televisions, and smartphones. This increasing demand is driven by the need for fire safety and compliance with government regulations.
Governments worldwide are implementing regulations to reduce the use of halogenated flame retardants due to their harmful environmental and health impacts. For example, the European Union's REACH regulation restricts the use of certain halogenated flame retardants in electrical and electronic equipment. In the United States, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) restricts the use of some halogenated flame retardants in children's products. These regulations are creating opportunities for non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals, which are considered to be safer and more environmentally friendly.
- In July 2022, BASF and THOR GmbH collaborated to develop sustainable non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals for plastic compounds, in response to the growing demand for fire safety regulations in the building and automotive industries. The partnership between BASF and THOR GmbH aimed to create durable polymeric systems that can withstand ignition and fire propagation. This collaboration combined BASF's halogen-free flame retardant Flamestab with THOR's phosphonates AFLAMMIT technologies, providing customers with synergistic benefits. The two companies' experts worked together to provide cost-effective and long-term technological solutions that meet clients' needs while satisfying demanding fire safety criteria.
- In May 2021, Atlanta-based company J.M. Huber Corp. acquired RHI Magnesita's 50% stake in Magnifin Magnesiaprodukte GmbH & Co. KG, a joint venture for non-halogenated flame retardants. Magnifin is known for its premium magnesium hydroxide (MDH) products used as eco-friendly flame retardants in various polymer applications. The acquisition aligned with Huber Engineered Materials (HEM) mission to operate market-leading speciality chemical and mineral companies. HEM's non-halogenated flame retardant additives business includes MDH and operates six manufacturing sites in North America and Europe, one of which is the Magnifin plant.
Based on type, the non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals market is expected to witness positive growth in the bromine-based segment.
The bromine-based non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals market has witnessed a surge in demand owing to their superior fire resistance properties and minimal environmental impact in comparison to conventional halogen-based flame retardants. The development of advanced production technologies has led to the creation of cost-effective and highly efficient bromine-based flame retardants, which is expected to drive the widespread adoption of these products in the foreseeable future. In summary, the bromine-based non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals market is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period, spurred by the increasing need for effective and sustainable fire safety solutions.
North America accounted for a significant share of the global non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals market.
Based on geography, the non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. North America is a prominent market for non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals due to strict fire safety regulations and growing demand from various end-use industries. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), flame retardants are widely used in the U.S. and are present in various products, including electronics, building materials, and textiles. The report also highlights potential health and environmental concerns associated with some traditional halogenated flame retardants, driving the demand for non-halogenated alternatives. The region's construction industry and increasing awareness of fire safety regulations are propelling the demand for non-halogenated flame retardants. The automotive industry is also a significant consumer of non-halogenated flame retardants due to the high demand for lightweight and safe vehicles. The presence of major players such as Albemarle Corporation, Clariant AG, and ICL Group in the region is fueling the growth of the non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals market in North America.
