Global Inorganic Flame Retardants Market Highlights Over 2022 - 2031

The global inorganic flame retardants market is estimated to garner a substantial revenue by growing at a CAGR of ~4% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. The growth of the market can be attributed primarily to the growing demand for fire retardant materials from a wide range of end use industries as a result of rise in the number of fire related accidents in factories. According to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, in 2017, there were about 8.991 million new injuries that resulted from fire, heat, and hot substances, of which 120,632 resulted in death. Along with this, developments in fire safety standards around the world, specifically for metallic element composite panel cladding used in buildings, is expected to raise the demand for the product significantly in the forthcoming years. Furthermore, rapidly escalating urbanization, and surging development of novel flame retardants by companies are projected to offer abundant growth opportunities to the market in the near future.

Inorganic Flame Retardants Market

The market is segmented by end use industry into construction, transportation, electrical & electronics, and, textiles, out of which, the construction segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global inorganic flame retardants market. This can be accounted to the increasing use of flame retardants in building materials in adherence to stringent fire safety regulations. Apart from this, high utilization of the product for structural insulation in buildings is also assessed to boost the growth of the market segment in the future. Additionally, on the basis of type, the non-halogenated segment is predicted to occupy the largest share by the end of 2031, owing to the lesser amount of heat and smoke produced by this type of flame retardants, and their high cost-effectiveness. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Chemicals (% of Value Added in Manufacturing) – 2016-2018

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
