Fire Safety to Remain a Key Segment, while Technical Textile to Augment the Consumption of Inorganic Flame Retardants

Fire safety standards are becoming more rigorous across the world, prompting the development of novel flame retardant products. The strict regulatory frameworks and industrial requirements have a significant impact on the development of the inorganic retardants.

Consumer knowledge of critical escape time during fire events, the effectiveness of flame retardants, and their advantages are likely to boost demand for these type of fire-resisting material.

The market is being driven by rising demand for fire retardant materials from a variety of end-use sectors, including construction, textiles, electrical and electronics, and transportation.

Furthermore, global fire safety regulations and legislation are likely to have a beneficial influence on product demand. Increasing use of such materials in protective clothing required for harsh industrial environments is a key factor augmenting market demand of inorganic flame retardants.

US and Europe Inorganic Flame Retardants Market Outlook

Fire safety rules vary based on the associated national legislation for health and environmental security, and are particularly stringent in the regions of Europe and North America.

End-users must include fire retardant chemicals into their products due to fire safety laws as part of local as well as federal building codes. Such factors are projected to drive the flame retardants market during the upcoming decade.

According to Flame Retardants Europe (FRE), technical advances in Europe along with the growing application spectrum of flame retardants, have pushed important manufacturers to assure fire safety. Several technical fire safety standards have been created by various governments around Europe.

The General Product Safety Directive (GPSD) assigns specified characteristics to items placed on the consumer market. Individual states, however, are responsible for enforcing fire safety rules. The United Kingdom has one of the world's most developed fire safety regulations. All such factors are anticipated to enable market growth in these Europe and North America during the forecast period.
