Report Synopsis

Epoxy resins and polyolefins form the two largest applications for flame retardant chemicals, and they will retain their leadership position over the analysis period with epoxy resins recording the fastest growth. While the global building & construction industry accounts for the largest share of flame retardants demand, the electrical & electronics sector, particularly in Asia, will emerge as the fastest growing. Asia-Pacific will retain its dominant position as the largest, as also the fastest growing, market for flame retardant chemicals. Bio-based and plant-based flame retardants are other areas where extensive research efforts are underway to introduce innovative solutions that offer renewability and sustainability.

Aluminum Hydroxide is the largest consumed product type with an estimated share of about 42% in 2019, which is anticipated to reach a projected US$5.4 billion by 2026. However, the global market for Phosphorus Compounds is likely to log the fastest 2019-2026 CAGR of 5.6% and reach a projected US$3.1 billion by 2026. The overall global Flame Retardant Chemicals market for 2020 is expected to reach 2.8 million metric tons.
