Flame retardant chemicals are additives used to stall flames and lower down the devastating impact of fire on people, property and surrounding. Flame retardants are combination of a variety of different chemicals with different properties and structures that act as flame retardant. Flame retardants are designed to minimize the risk of a fire from starting and limit the spread of fire. Flame retardant chemicals are generally used to treat flammable materials such as textile and polymers. Some of the most widely used flame retardant chemicals include bromine, phosphorus, nitrogen and chlorine. Some inorganic compounds are also used as a flame retardant, either alone or as part of a flame retardant system in combination with bromine, phosphorus or chlorine. Flame retardant chemicals can be generally classified as halogenated and non-halogenated flame retardants.    

The global flame retardant chemical market is primarily driven by technological advancements in fire safety solutions and regulations. Strong regulations’ regarding fire safety of buildings & construction and automobile has resulted into strong growth of fire retardant chemicals in the recent past. Plastic and textile are growing popularity among end-users owing to several operational benefits offered by these materials. However, plastic and textile are highly flammable materials. With increasing use of plastic and textile in large number of applications in host of industries such as building & construction, automotive, electrical & electronic is resulted into growing need for fire safety. However, toxicity issues related to use of halogenated flame retardants and high cost of non-halogenated flame retardants is expected to be major restraint of the global flame retardant chemical market.
