Global Markets for Flame Retardant Chemicals and Plastics

Report Description

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 Thermoformed Plastic Products Market 2014-2018

About Thermoformed Plastic Products Thermoformed plastic products are mass-produced by heating a plastic sheet to bending temperature, shaping it as desirable, and then cooling it. The cooled product is trimmed to get the required usable end-product. The various raw materials used for creating thermoformed plastic products include PS, PP, TPOS, PE, PVC, ABS, acrylics, polycarbonates, and bio-degradable polymers. Thermoformed plastic products have lighter weight and superior strength compared with traditional packaging materials such as wood and glass. Therefore, they are increasingly used in a variety of packaging applications, which include food, electronic, and healthcare packaging. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Thermoformed Plastic Products Market to grow at a CAGR of 4.27 pe......
