Market overview

A market that was valued at USD 2,307.8 million USD in the year 2019 and is augur to reach a value of around 5/2% CAGR during the forecast is the global Halogen-free flame retardants. The primary use of flame retardants is in materials like plastics, coatings, textiles, goals, and many. Once these are added into these materials, it ensures the fires or the delay and keeps a check on the spread. They are widely used as an alternative to halogenated flame retardants. A similar kind of fire resistance and technicalities are obtained from them as from the halogen flame retardants.

Moreover, they exhibit many advantages as compared to halogenated ones. They produce less amount of smoke and also exhibit very few toxic components. They are further divided into the following:

Nitrogen-based: Melamine cyanurate and melamine polyphosphate

Phosphorus based: Organic phosphorus, inorganic phosphorus, elemental phosphorus

Mineral flame retardants: magnesium hydroxide, aluminum trihydrate.

Market Dynamics

There have been strict regulations against the use of halogenated flame retardants. This is one of the major factors that has led to the rise of halogen-free flame retardants. A directive like RoHS, WEEE by the European Union, and REACH have already restricted the use of halogenated flame retardants. This was even a topic of discussion in the early '90s when the truth behind the BFR was the same in the limelight: they could emit toxins that are non-biodegradable and bioaccumulate in living beings. This has led to the ban of halogenated flame retardants because of two main factors: 

1. It causes serious damage to the environment because of its non-biodegradable properties. Moreover, it is most likely to contribute to environmental hazards like global warming and depletion of the ozone layer.

2. It is equally dangerous for human health as it gets accumulated inside the organism and, because it does not degrade, causes serious ill effects on the health of the living beings.

Value chain analysis/Technology analysis/Regulatory implications

The regulatory implication on the Halogen-Free Flame Retardants Market has majorly been due to its counterpart's toxic elements. Hence halogen-free retardants are closely monitored by the resulting authorized to make sure that it neither causes any damage to the nor produce any ill effect in the health of the living beings. The regulations have been made specially in the substances emitted by these retardants to ensure that they are non-toxic and don't pose any hazard.

The technological analysis has been made regularly so that better chemicals and combinations can be used. This is mostly due to the reason that it needs loads of loading as compared to halogenated Flame Retardants. If this restraint can be controlled, there is no stopping them from blooming in every corner of the globe. These have proved to be useful and healthy alternatives to halogenated flame retardants.
