US flame retardant demand will rise 6.0 percent yearly to 1.1 billion pounds in 2016. The shift toward lower cost non-halogenated types will be offset by their higher loading levels. Boron compounds will grow the fastest based on rapid gains in cellulosic insulation for new home building. Construction products will be the fastest growing market.This study analyzes the 816 million pound US flame retardant industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by material (e.g., thermoplastics, thermosets), market (e.g., construction products, electrical and electronic products, wire and cable, motor vehicles, textiles, aircraft and aerospace) and product (e.g., alumina trihydrate, boron compounds, phosphorus compounds, brominated compounds, antimony trioxide, chlorinated compounds).The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 33 industry players, including Chemtura, Albemarle, and Israel Chemicals.
