Non-halogenated FR market predicted to grow 7% annually

The global non-halogenated flame retardant market for polymers is predicted to grow 67% (value) from 2011 to 2018, to reach US$ 2.15 billion in 2018 (7.1% market growth per year), according to two market reports published by Transparency Market Research. Increasing polymer use in a range of industries, demand for flame retardant polymers to contribute to fire safety and a move to non-halogenated flame retardants by user industries because of concerns for halogenated products are cited as expected to drive the market. Issues for non halogenated flame retardants are considered to be high loading levels and processability.

Transportation, textile, construction, electrical and furniture are cited as key applications, with particularly strong development expected for engineering thermoplastics.
