A study by Researchandmarkets estimates that global demand for non-halogenated flame retardants will grow by 6.2% per year (CAGR) from 2018 to 2023, with growth particularly strong in consumer electronics production. In this E&E sector, growth is particularly expected in the Asia-Pacific region, with phosphorus-based PIN FRs the leading fire safety solution. The construction sector will also show growing demand for PIN FRs. A second study by Marketresearchfuture estimates the global growth for non-halogenated flame retardants for the same period (2018-2013) at 5.8% CAGR. This study indicates as US$ 2 190 billion the PIN flame retardant market in 2017. Drivers for growth of PIN FRs are indicated in this study as regulatory constraints on halogenated FRs and ecological sustainability of PINs, and growth for PIN FRs in the building and construction sector.
