It is estimated that fires cause over 300,000 deaths world-wide (WHO) and have a direct and indirect cost in the developed world of an estimated 1% of GDP. In the USA alone, fire departments responded to 1.24M fires in 2013 which resulted in 3,240 civilian fire fatalities, and caused US$11.5bn in direct property loss (NFPA).

Flame retardants are one way of tackling this problem, and they play a crucial role in reducing fires and their associated deaths, injuries and economic damage. The global flame retardant market stands at 2.2Mt with a value of almost US$6bn in 2014. This is set to grow annually through to 2019 as increased regulation takes effect.

This report examines the mineral sector of the flame retardant market, their properties, applications and its outlook by mineral and end use. It also introduces a comprehensive guide to fire and flammability tests methods and terminology as well as flame retardant standards.

Minerals are a very important part of the flame retardant portfolio, accounting for over half of the market by weight. These include both directly mined and chemically synthesised minerals. Covered in the report are:

  • Aluminium hydroxide
  • Magnesium hydroxide
  • Calcium sulphate dihydrate and huntite/hydromagnesite mixtures
  • Antimony oxide and related inorganics such zinc stannates
  • Red phosphorus
  • Borates
  • Ammonium polyphosphates
  • Graphite
  • Nanoclays/organoclays
