Flame retardants are chemicals applied to prevent, stop or slow down the combustion of flammable materials, such as wood, plastic, paper, rubber and fibers. They are manufactured using organohalogens, organophosphates and various active compounds, such as bromine, chlorine, phosphorus, nitrogen, aluminum, magnesium, boron and carbon. Flame retardants are commonly used for the manufacturing of automobile bumpers, overhead compartments, seats covers, furnishing products, such as carpets, curtains and upholstery, and electronic devices, including televisions, laptops and personal computers. They are also widely used in electric cables, polystyrene and polyurethane insulation foams and building and construction materials. However, long-term exposure to flame retardants can have detrimental effects on human health and can cause neurological damage, hormonal disruption and cancer.
The increasing utilization of fire retardants across various industries, such as automotive, electronics, construction, aviation and textile, is one of the key factors driving the market growth. Moreover, rising awareness among the masses regarding the need for effective fire management solutions to prevent fire incidents and property loss is providing a thrust to the market growth. For instance, consumer electronics manufacturers are widely using flame retardants in electric wire insulations in circuit boards, electronic casing, and wires and cable systems to prevent fires. In line with this, the widespread adoption of phosphorous-based flame retardants in rigid polyurethane foams is also contributing to the growth of the market. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of halogen-free variants that are sustainable and safe for humans upon exposure, are favoring the market growth. Other factors, including significant growth in the chemical industry across the globe, along with the implementation of favorable fire safety standards and regulations, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
