The global flame retardant market is expected to rise at a CAGR of 5.9% to reach USD 11,175.9 million by the end of 2027 on account of the increasing fire safety regulations adopted by various end-user industries worldwide. They are chemicals added to flammable materials such as plastic, coatings, textiles, and others to prevent fire incidents.
Antimony Oxides Segment Earned Highest Share Soon to be Overpowered by ATH Segment
The market was dominated by the antimony oxides segment with a 26.6% flame retardant market share in 2019. However, the ATH or the aluminium trihydrate segment is likely to emerge dominant in the forecast period as it does not emit any toxic smoke while burning and is, therefore, the most widely used component in the field of these retardants today.
