Key Drivers of Non-halogenated Flame Retardants Market for Polymers

Halogenated retardants are considered toxic. Owing to such reasons, several end-use industries are now shifting to the use of non-halogenated flame retardants. Flame retardants are popularly used as additives in polymers in order to increase the fire resistance during fire accidents or in case of ignition. The drive by fire safety regulations regarding risk of fire hazards in various end-use industries, including construction and electrical are also considered as one of another key growth factor for the global demand for non-halogenated flame retardants. Moreover, increasing polymer usage in multiple industries is also leading to high demand for flame retardant polymers.
