ReportsnReports – Global Markets for Flame Retardant Chemicals and Plastics

  1. 1. Global Markets for Flame Retardant Chemicals and PlasticsReportsnReports.com adds BCC Research Market Research Report “Global Markets for FlameRetardant Chemicals and Plastics’’ to its store.STUDY GOAL AND OBJECTIVESThe Global Market for Flame Retardant Chemicals presents a detailed overview of theworldwide market size, growth, and trends for this industry. The report reviews globalmarkets for flame retardant chemicals, and forecasts trends and sales in these marketsthrough 2014. The major chemicals, applications and industries using these products arediscussed. The regulations driving this market are also reviewed. The impact of regulationson the global market is evaluated. Estimates of market share by product application andchemical types are provided and analyzed. Regional consumption by chemical and byapplication is presented. The industry structure, including major suppliers, is also discussed.REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDYGovernment regulations and industry standards obligate manufacturers to add flameretardant chemicals to a wide range of products used every day. The irony of this industry isthat some of these flame retardant products, while responsible for saving countless lives,are toxic. In order to protect consumers and the environment, regulations are in placelimiting the use of specific flame retardants in specific applications. The benefits ofprotecting people from death and property from damage resulting from fires must beweighed against exposure to chemicals that are potentially harmful to human health and theenvironment. The impact these regulations have on the industry is multi-dimensional. Thisstudy will discuss the flame retardant chemicals market resulting from this balancing actbetween fire retardant requirements and environmental regulations.INTENDED AUDIENCEThe Global Market for Flame Retardant Chemicals is a detailed report covering the plastics,textiles, wood/paper, coatings/paper, coatings/construction and coatings/decorationsmarket applications. The report will assist and aid in strategic planning for companiessupplying flame retardants to customers in these markets, as well as end-users of flameretardants and flame-retarded products, and those needing further information about thisindustry. Information will be provided to support estimates.SCOPE OF REPORTThe scope of this study includes the chemicals used for flame retardant purposes. Thechemicals are evaluated by retardant mechanism and by chemical type, and by end-useapplication. Particular attention is paid to the plastics industry. The current flame retardantchemicals market is assessed and compared to historical market performance. Projectedsales for the industry as a whole are forecast by application and type. The market is alsovalued on a regional and worldwide scale. The impacts of the industries using flameretardant products are discussed.METHODOLOGY
  2. 2. BCC evaluates each flame retardant chemical application and type. To make projections forthe future of the flame retardant chemicals market, a correlation between products usingflame retardant chemicals and the annual sales of flame retardant chemicals was developed.Interviews were conducted with raw material suppliers, flame retardant chemicalcompanies, and end user company representatives to compile a full picture of the future ofthe flame retardant chemical marketplace.INFORMATION SOURCESHundreds of information sources contributed to this study, including interviews with industryexperts, research databases, technical abstracts, commerce publications, governmentsources, financial and trade information, library resources and the Internet.Table of ContentsChapter-1: SUMMARY 3SUMMARY 4SUMMARY TABLE GLOBAL FORECAST OF FLAME RETARDANT CHEMICALS CONSUMPTION,THROUGH 2014 (MILLIONS) 5SUMMARY FIGURE GLOBAL FORECAST OF FLAME RETARDANT CHEMICALS CONSUMPTION,2008-2014 (MILLIONS) 5SUMMARY (CONTINUED) 6Chapter-2: INDUSTRY OVERVIEW 35IMPORTANCE OF THE INDUSTRY 7HISTORY OF THE FLAME RETARDANT CHEMICALS INDUSTRY 8FLAME RETARDANCY BASICS 8TERMINOLOGY 8MECHANISMS OF BURNING 9TABLE 1 ADDITIVES/MODIFIERS FOR CONTROLLING BURNING 9FLAME RETARDANCY CONCEPTS 10PHYSICAL DILUTION 10CHEMICAL INTERFERENCE 10INERT GAS DILUTION 11THERMAL QUENCHING 11PROTECTIVE COATINGS 11TABLE 2 FLAME RETARDANT CHEMICALS AND THEIR MECHANISMS 12TYPES OF FLAME RETARDANTS 12ADDITIVE FLAME RETARDANTS 12REACTIVE FLAME RETARDANTS 13SYNERGISTIC FLAME RETARDANTS 13TABLE 3 TYPICAL SYNERGISTIC FLAME RETARDANT COMBINATIONS (PERCENT)14
