Flame retardant chemicals play a significant role in the electrical and electronics market. Electrical fires are one of the major sources of household and industrial fires around the world.
Flame retardant materials find use in electrical equipment, right from the smallest components of a computer to large electrical grids. Flame retardants increase resistance to both internal and external heat sources.
The growing use of electrical appliances, along with the introduction of better technology, is expected to create an increased demand for flame retardant chemicals in the electrical and electronics sectors.
According to ZEVI, in 2020, the global electrical and electronics industry is expected to reach around EUR 4.70 trillion. This, in turn is likely to increase the demand for flame retardant chemicals.
Since electric fire is a major cause of household fires in general, the fire safety standards are getting stricter, leading to an increased use of flame retardants in electrical appliances.
Halogen-free materials have also not been able to match the performance level of the halogenated ones; however more industries are switching to these due to strict regulations put forth by the respective governments.
Certain studies have led to the development of dopamine-based (non-halogenated) flame retardants, which have excellent bonding and are non-toxic.
These technological developments are expected to boost the non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals market.

North America dominated the market. In countries such as Mexico, Untied States, Canada etc., the growing construction industry is expected to contribute to the demand for the non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals market.
In North America, EPA has taken measures under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to regulate the manufacture and processing of these chemicals, and has banned the usage of few halogenated flame retardants.
The risk assessments conducted by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and discussion on the usage of flame retardants by Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in accordance with flammability standards, increase the usage of non-halogenated flame retardants.
Many states in the United States have banned the usage of halogenated flame retardants; few others, though they continue to permit the usage, they are focus toward the replacement of these flame retardants.
Aforementioned factors are expected to increase the demand of non-halogenated flame retardant chemicals market.
