In the fourth quarter of 2023, the North American bromine market experienced a bearish trend, accompanied by low to moderate supply and declining demand, particularly in downstream industries like flame retardant and intermediates. Manufacturers reduced production due to oversupply and destocking by consumers, while slow overseas orders further affected the market.

In China, the bromine market saw stable demand from downstream industries, including flame retardant, alongside increased supply and higher domestic inventories from elevated production levels. Prices slightly rose due to heightened demand, with sufficient material availability domestically. The price of Bromine Exw-Shandong in China at the end of Q4 2023 was USD 3549/MT.

In the United Arab Emirates, significant price fluctuations occurred during the quarter due to an initially bearish market that later stabilized. Bromine supply remained moderate throughout. Compared to the same period last year, prices experienced a notable decrease of -48%.

Bromine Market Analysis

The global bromine market size reached US$ 3.5 Billion in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 5.2 Billion, at a projected CAGR of 4.25% during 2023-2032.

  • Bromine-based clear brine fluids are extensively used in oil and gas extraction processes as drilling and completion fluids. The increasing drilling activities worldwide to meet energy needs is driving the demand for bromine. According to Rystad [ag1] Energy, drilling activity was expected to increase with around 54,000 wells globally in 2021, marking a 12% rise from 2020. Further growth was projected in 2022, with an estimated 64,500 wells, albeit still below pre-pandemic levels. Onshore drilling was set to rise by 12% in 2021 to about 51,700 wells, followed by a 19% increase in 2022 to approximately 61,700 wells.
  • With the growing need for clean and safe water, bromine compounds are increasingly utilized in water treatment processes. Its effectiveness against a wide range of pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, and protozoa, makes it a valuable asset in ensuring water safety and quality. For instance, the World Health Organization (WHO [ag2] ) states that approximately 1 million people die annually due to diarrhea caused by unsafe drinking water, sanitation, and poor hand hygiene. In addition to diarrhea, contaminated food and water pose various health risks. In 2021, over 251.4 million individuals required preventative treatment for schistosomiasis, a disease caused by parasitic worms transmitted through exposure to infested water. Moreover, microbiologically contaminated drinking water can transmit diseases, such as cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio and is estimated to cause approximately 505 000 diarrhoeal deaths each year.
  • Besides this, bromine compounds, such as bromochlorodimethylhydantoin (BCDMH), are employed in both swimming pools and industrial water treatment processes. These compounds release active bromine and chlorine when dissolved in water, offering a broad-spectrum antimicrobial action that is effective over a wide pH range. This characteristic is particularly beneficial in applications where maintaining a consistent pH is challenging.
  • Bromine offers unique chemical properties, which makes it an invaluable reactant in organic synthesis, enabling the formation of various brominated pharmaceuticals. It is utilized in the formulation of an array of essential medications, such as those that treat epilepsy, anesthesia, sedation, and Alzheimer's disease. According to Alzheimer's Association [ag3] , approximately 7 million Americans lived with Alzheimer's, a number that will nearly double to 13 million by 2050. In 2021, Alzheimer's ranked as the fifth-leading cause of death among individuals aged 65 and older. Health and long-term care costs for those with dementia are forecasted to reach $360 billion in 2024 and nearly $1 trillion by 2050.

Product Description

Bromine is a chemical element with a dark reddish-brown color and a bleach-like odor. It is liquid at room temperature and soluble in water. It occurs naturally and is extracted from brine pools, where it is present in small quantities and separated through processes like aeration. It is known for its versatile properties, including high reactivity and effective heat stabilization.

It is a critical component in the production of flame retardants, which are essential for enhancing fire safety in a variety of consumer products, including electronics, textiles, and construction materials. It helps to slow down or stop the spread of fire, providing crucial protection and safety. It is also utilized in the production of dyes and pigments, offering a spectrum of vibrant colors for textiles and inks. It is a key component in the manufacture of silver bromide, a compound used in traditional photographic film due to its sensitivity to light, enabling image capture.

In agriculture, brominated compounds serve as potent pesticides and fumigants, helping to protect crops and ensure food security.
