In countries such as China, the shift of its economy into a consumer- and services-driven economy has opened doors to new types of construction in the healthcare, education, and social infrastructure, as well as retail and other consumer end-markets. The construction market in India is also expected to grow at a rate almost twice that of China during the forecast period.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals, “Low smoke halogen free flame retardant polypropylene is used widely across the construction industry in the form of hot-melt adhesives. The increase in demand for construction activities from almost every sector is expected to drive the consumption of low smoke halogen free flame retardant polypropylene in the global market.”
Global market opportunities
In terms of regional dominance, the Americas led the global low smoke halogen free flame retardant polypropylene market, followed by APAC and EMEA in 2017. APAC is the fastest growing market due to the expansion of the construction and automotive industries in this region. APAC is also a potential market for low smoke halogen free flame retardant polypropylene manufacturers due to the easy availability of raw materials and cheap labor.
In the Americas, the US was the highest revenue contributor to the market in 2017. Regulatory authorities in this region phased out bromine-based products that are highly toxic. This proved to be a major factor contributing towards the growth of low smoke halogen free flame retardant polypropylene in this region.
