Global Halogen-Free Flame Retardants Market Information: By Type (Aluminum Trihydrate, Phosphorous-Based), Resin Type (PE, PP, Epoxy, PVC), End-Use Industry (Building & Construction, Electrical & Electronics, Transportation), and Region — Forecast To 2023
Market Synopsis of Global Halogen-Free Flame Retardants Market
Flame retardants are composites that are added to materials such as plastics, coatings, foams, and textiles to prevent ignition and flame spread. Flame retardants find a wide range of applications in industries such as electrical and electronics, building and construction, transportation, and consumer goods. Halogen-free flame retardants are a viable alternative for halogenated flame retardants, which exhibit excellent flame-retardant characteristics, but also lead to health and environmental issues. In the case of fire, halogenated flame retardants release smoke and toxic fire gases such as polybrominated or polychlorinated dibenzodioxins (PCDD) or polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDF) that decrease visibility and the released toxins bioaccumulate and are non-biodegradable. The halogen-free retardants produce less smoke with fewer toxic components. The various types of halogen-free flame retardants are mineral flame retardants such as aluminum trihydrate, magnesium hydroxide, and zinc stearate; phosphorus-based flame retardants such as elemental phosphorus, organic phosphorus, and inorganic phosphorous; and nitrogen-based flame retardants such as melamine cyanurate, melamine phosphate, and melamine polyphosphate.

As per MRFR analysis, the global halogen-free flame retardants market was valued at USD 2191.95 million in 2017 and is expected to exhibit considerable growth with a CAGR of 5.76% during the forecast period, 2018–2023. Stringent regulations against the use of halogenated flame retardants due to their toxic nature are likely to boost the growth of the global halogen-free flame retardants market. Besides, the growing use of polymers in the building & construction and electrical & electronics industries has increased the risk of fires, which consequently is expected to fuel the demand for flame retardants.

Based on type, the aluminum trihydrate segment accounted for the largest market share of 45.34% in 2017 due to the lower cost of the product as compared to other halogen-free flame retardants. By resin type, the polyethylene segment accounted for the largest share of the global halogen-free flame retardants market due to its relatively large-scale consumption across various end-use industries. The polyethylene segment was followed by the polypropylene segment which accounted for 20.16% of the total market in 2017. On the basis of end-use industry, the building and construction segment accounted for the largest market share of 42.15% in 2017 and is slated to exhibit significant growth during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the wide use of polymers in the form of plastics, composites, foams, textiles, and paints and coatings in the building & construction industry. These materials pose high fire risks as they are highly flammable and tend to drip, and as a result help in spreading the fire. Halogen-free flame retardants are used in these building materials, which comply with the fire safety standards and building codes. These flame retardants help prevent the spread of fire and provide critical escape time. Furthermore, the trend of replacing metals and glass with polymers and composites in the automotive industry is likely to create lucrative opportunities for the players operating in the halogen-free flame retardants market during the forecast period.
However, the high loading amount of halogen-free flame retardants is expected to restrain the growth of the product market during the forecast period.
