Bromine Derivatives Market Trends

  • Plastics demand from the automotive and electronic industries is driving market growth

Market CAGR for Bromine Derivatives is quickly developing in the electrical and electronics industry. Plastics are widely employed in the manufacture of electrical equipment. Plastics are utilized in a wide range of industrial applications, such as connectors, electronic casings and components, wire and cable, switches, and printed circuit boards. Flame retardants are now needed ingredients in many products to prevent fires caused by resistive heating or joule heating.

To lessen fire dangers caused by heat generation caused by engine overheating or electrical overload/shorting, for example, practically all plastic parts in an automobile must have good flame-retardant characteristics.

In addition, the rising stringency of government rules encouraging the use of flame-retardant components in cars is likely to drive up demand for such components.

Flame retardants use bromine compounds to limit the spread of fire. Flame retardants can prevent a fire from spreading and give people more time to evacuate and flee the area. Fire retardants are utilized for both personal and commercial purposes, and can be found in a variety of settings, including offices, malls, theatres, trains, aircraft, and automobiles. The growing need to reduce fire damage all across the world is driving the bromine derivatives. market revenue.

Furthermore, Israel Chemicals Limited and Albemarle Corporation signed a definitive long-term  to supply polymeric flame retardants ly. Albemarle markets these goods under the GreenCrest name, whereas ICL markets them under the FR122P brand.

Bromine Derivatives Market Segment Insights

Bromine Derivatives Product Type Insights

The bromine derivatives market segmentation, based on product type includes hydrogen bromide, calcium bromide, sodium bromide, zinc bromide, decabromodiphenyl ethane (DBDPE), tetrabromobisphenol a (TBBPA) and others. Sodium bromine is expected to have the largest CAGR during the projection period. Sodium bromide (NaBr) is a common inorganic, highly flammable, white crystalline compound. It acts as a catalyst in TEMPO-mediated oxidation processes. Because it is chemically stable, NaBr is used in conjunction with other bromide and chloride solutions. It aids in the development of chemical sensitivity. Government measures and laws addressing serious issues, as well as growing concerns about water purity, are projected to drive up demand for the product in the future years.

Bromine Derivatives Application Insights

The bromine derivatives market segmentation, based on application, includes flame retardants, organic intermediate, oil & gas drilling, biocides, PTA synthesis and others. Flame retardants are expected to dominate the bromine market in terms of value during the projected period. This dominance can be due to rising demand for flame retardants in the automotive, electronics, construction and infrastructure, rubber, and textile industries. Brominated chemicals have numerous applications in various industries. Bromine chemicals are commonly used as flame retardants. Bromine extinguishes a fire by interacting with the fire cycle in the gaseous phase, so interrupting the chemical chain reaction. Brominated flame retardants (BFs) are bromine-containing compounds that are added to substances to impede or slow the rate of burning. Brominated flame retardants are more commonly employed than other commercialized chemical flame retardants.

Lanxess AG is a German specialty chemicals firm headquartered in Cologne, Germany. It was created in 2004 following the spin-off of Bayer AG's chemicals division and sections of its polymers business. The company's origins may be traced back to 1863, the year Bayer AG was founded. As part of a major restructuring, the Bayer Group chose to spin off big parts of its chemical activities and roughly one-third of its polymer business into an independent company. In July 2019, Lanxess revealed numerous project growth plans for the region by 2022, including a USD 60 million investment in the bromine reservoir site.
