Flame Retardants Market Overview
Fire safety is a highly critical concern that holds the capacity to cause a major impact on the lives of people and the surrounding environment. The criticality of the same makes the emergence of a solution a highly imperative requirement. Flame retardants comes-in as a viable solution to this situation.
Flame retardants refer to a variety of chemical substances that help prevent fire and slow down the ignition from spreading. They are added to combustible materials to increase their fire safety and reduce the risk of the same. It has considerably helped increase fire safety and has curbed down the destructive impact of fires on properties, people, and the environment. They are added to potentially flammable materials like textiles and plastics to prevent it from any fire hazard. These retardants are found in a wide variety of applications like cables and wires, plastics, polyurethane foam, fabrics, and others.
The Flame Retardants industry is projected to witness an impressive growth in terms of volume, i.e., million metric tons by the year 2022. The market is expected to grow at 5.86% during the forecast period. It is revealed by Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published market report that the burgeoning demand of flame retardants from industries such as building and construction, transportation, and electronics is anticipated to drive the growth of the market. Expanding demand from the plastic industry coupled with the latest safety-driven government regulations are the major drivers for the market.
However, flame retardants cause toxicity issues during the time of production, one which can severely affect the market growth in the near future. Additionally, alternatives like Magnesium Hydroxide (MDH) can also cause a decline in the flame retardants market.
