The flame retardants market for engineering resins market size is estimated to be USD 1.7 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 2.3 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period 2021-2026. Factors such as the growth of end-use industries and increasing fire safety regulations will drive the flame retardants market for the engineering resins market. Engineering plastics are increasingly used as substitutes for steel in automotive manufacturing processes to reduce the vehicle's weight and increase component efficiency. This is increasing the demand for flame retardants. The major restraint for the market will be environmental and health concerns and high loading levels associated with mineral-based flame retardants. However, the innovation in technology and the development of more effective synergist compounds for better performance will act as an opportunity for the market.
"Brominated flame retardants is the largest type for flame retardants market for engineering resins market in 2020"
Brominated compounds have vast applications in several industries. Brominated flame retardants have an inhibitory effect on combustion chemistry. They reduce the flammability of products. These are generally organobromine compounds and are most effective in plastic applications such as PA, ABS, PBT, PET, and PC. Bromine stops fire by interacting with the fire cycle in the gaseous phase and stops the chemical chain reaction. The flame retardant acts in two ways, either by preventing the fire from starting or by slowing it down significantly. They are added to materials such as plastics and do not alter the properties of the parent material. They are very effective flame retardants and used for end-use applications such as textiles, electronics, building materials, plastics, and foams.
"ABS is estimated to be the largest application of flame retardants market for engineering resins market between 2021 and 2026."
ABS is a common amorphous thermoplastic polymer with no true melting point. It is produced by polymerizing styrene and acrylonitrile in the presence of polybutadiene. Acrylonitrile increases the heat deflection temperature of the compound and contributes to chemical resistance, hardness, and rigidity. In contrast, styrene gives a shiny and impervious surface to the plastic. ABS is an engineering plastic that is easy to manufacture and fabricate. ABS is an optimum material for applications when properties, such as resistance, strength, and durability are required. ABS has various end-use applications such as food handling & equipment, aerospace & defence, oil & gas, medical technology materials, and material handling & conveying.
