LONDON, June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Background:
According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the alumina trihydrate (ATH) flame retardant market looks good with opportunities in the electrical and electronics, building and construction, and wire and cable industries. The global ATH flame retardant market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2015 to 2020. The major drivers of growth for this market are stringent governmental regulations related to prohibition on use of halogenated flame retardants, growing awareness on fire safety, and increasing market penetration of ATH flame retardants in various end-use industries. ATH flame retardants are used in a variety of applications with materials like polyolefin, epoxy, rubber, unsaturated polyester resin, polyvinyl chloride, and others. Lucintel predicts that the demand for polyolefin is likely to experience the highest growth in the forecast period supported by growing demand in end product manufacturing. On the basis of comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that wire and cable segment is expected to show highest growth during the forecast period.
Within the ATH flame retardant market, the building and construction segment is expected to emerge as the largest market by value. The changes in regulatory requirement and strong demand of halogen free flame retardants are expected to spur growth for this segment over the forecast period. North America is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume both due to growth in end use applications and wider acceptance of ATH flame retardants in various end-use industries. Asia Pacific and the Rest of the World are expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period because of growing awareness on fire safety, and restriction on some halogenated flame retardants. For market expansion, report suggests innovation and new product development, where the unique characteristics of ATH flame retardants can be capitalized. The report further suggests the development of partnerships with customers to create win-win situations and development of lowcost solutions for the end user.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include the growing consumption of nano-particle ATH and original equipment manufacturers (OEM's) commitments towards the use of non-halogenated flame retardants. Nabaltec AG, Albemarle Corporation, Huber Engineered Materials, and TOR Minerals are among the major suppliers of the ATH flame retardants. Some companies are opting for M&A as a strategic initiative for driving growth.
