North America: use of nonhalogenated flame retardants in polymers drives growth
In North America, the US is the largest consumer of flame retardant chemicals. The market in the region is driven by its increasing use in wire and cables, electronics, and automotive segments. The increasing use of nonhalogenated flame retardants in polymers is one of the prime factors for driving the market growth in the region.
Europe: large scale use of plastics and polymers boosts demand for flame retardants
The market for flame retardant chemicals in Europe is driven by its widespread use in Germany, France, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. Flame retardants in the region are regulated by organizations, including Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and European Brominated Flame Retardant Industry Panel (EBRFIP). The market is driven by the increased use of nonhalogenated flame retardants. Europe is one of the highest consumers of plastics and polymers. “Growth in polyolefins, thermoplastics, PVC, rubber, and styrene markets, along with higher fire safety concerns will drive the market growth in this region,” says Ajay.
ROW: growth in the automotive, construction, and electronics sectors boosts demand
The ROW market for flame retardant chemicals is driven by growth in the automotive, building and construction, textile, and electronics sectors in Central and South America, Middle East, and Africa.
The light vehicle market in Central and South America is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 3%. Plastic components are widely being used in this sector to reduce the curb weight of the vehicles to increase fuel efficiency. Therefore, the use of flame retardant chemicals in plastic components is expected to increase during the forecast period.
