U.S. demand for flame retardants to grow

Tuesday, 6 October 2009

According to The Freedonia Group’s new study, U.S. demand for flame retardants is forecast to expand 2.7 % per annum to 950 million pounds in 2013.

U.S. demand for flame retardants is expected to reverse its decline and is forecast to expand 2.7 % per annum to 950 million pounds in 2013, valued at USD 900 million. These and other trends are presented in "Flame Retardants", a new study from The Freedonia Group Inc. Flame retardant advances will reflect renewed vigour in key markets such as insulated wire and cable, and construction. Other stimulants include more stringent fire codes and flammability requirements. Best growth is expected for phosphorus-based flame retardants, which are projected to increase 3.7 % yearly to 168 million pounds.

Construction products accounted for one-third of total flame retardant demand and will grow at an average pace to 313 million pounds in 2013. Source: Fotolia/Salmon
