Global Markets for Flame Retardant Chemicals and Plastics

2012-02-28

Report Summary

REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

  • The global market for flame-retardant chemicals was worth $4.1 billion in 2008 and a projected $4.3 billion in 2009. It should reach $6.1 billion by 2014, for a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.0%.
  • The global fl ameretardant chemicals industry used 3.2 billion pounds of materials in 2008. This is expected to increase to 3.4 billion pounds in 2009, and 4.3 billion pounds in 2014, for a CAGR of 5.0%.
  • Studies have shown that a burning room containing fl ameretardant products releases 75% less heat and 33% fewer toxic gases than a room that lacks the products.

SCOPE OF REPORT

The scope of this study includes the chemicals used for flame retardant purposes. The chemicals are evaluated by retardant mechanism and by chemical type, and by end-use application. Particular attention is paid to the plastics industry. The current flame retardant chemicals market is assessed and compared to historical market performance. Projected sales for the industry as a whole are forecast by application and type. The market is also valued on a regional and worldwide scale. The impacts of the industries using flame retardant products are discussed.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

Government regulations and industry standards obligate manufacturers to add flame retardant chemicals to a wide range of products used every day. The irony of this industry is that 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 place limiting the use of specific flame retardants in specific applications. The benefits of protecting people from death and property from damage resulting from fires must be weighed against exposure to chemicals that are potentially harmful to human health and the environment. The impact these regulations have on the industry is multi-dimensional. This study will discuss the flame retardant chemicals market resulting from this balancing act between fire retardant requirements and environmental regulations.

Global Pulp Market 2016-2020

Pulp is a type of fibrous material that is largely composed of water, cellulose fibers, lignin, and hemicelluloses. Cellulose fibers are essential for the production of paper, while lignin is a type of polymer that binds these fibers together. Hemicellulose, like cellulose, is a carbohydrate-based polymer that binds closely to cellulose fibers and along with cellulose fibers, provides strength to paper. Water, cellulose fibers, lignin, and hemicelluloses constitute over 95% of the composition of pulp. In some pulp grades, extractives account for the remaining composition. Air-dried pulp, which is available in the market, has a lower amount of water (less than 10% by weight). The analysts forecast global pulp market to grow at a CAGR of 2.02% by production capacity during the period 2016......
