Development trends of environmentally friendly flame retardants

In recent years, people's living standards have been continuously improving, and environmental protection, safety, and health have received increasing attention. With the development of modern industry, polymer materials such as plastics, rubber, and synthetic fibers have been widely used. However, almost all of these organic polymer compounds are flammable and produce a large amount of deadly toxic gases when burned. To further improve the flame retardancy of synthetic materials, adding flame retardants is effective. So, let's take a look at the development trends of environmentally friendly flame retardants.
Environmentally friendly flame retardants are mainly used in industries such as transportation, electronics, furniture, and building materials, and have broad market prospects.
Currently, domestic fire safety requirements are constantly increasing, people's awareness of fire safety is constantly increasing, environmental protection systems are becoming stricter, and strategic emerging industries such as energy conservation and environmental protection are flourishing. At the same time, with the continuous adjustment and upgrading of the consumption structure of environmentally friendly flame retardants, the market demand for magnesium hydroxide flame retardants produced by magnesium salt enterprises represented by Zehui Group has rapidly increased.
The consumption of environmentally friendly flame retardants has been increasing year by year. According to statistics, the global demand for flame retardants in 2020 was 2.904 million tons. It is expected that the global demand for flame retardants will reach 3.59 million tons in 2027, with an average annual demand growth of about 3.08%. The United States and Europe have developed rapidly in the flame retardant consumer market, with a rapid growth rate around the 1990s. However, since 2005, the focus of the flame retardant consumer market has gradually shifted to the Asian region. Although the flame retardant industry in Asia started relatively late, the Asian market represented by China grew rapidly from 2005 to 2012.
In modern manufacturing production, a large amount of combustible materials, including synthetic polymer materials, wood, are used. Cities with high concentrations of people and equipment facilities are facing a huge fire threat. In order to solve this problem, many countries and organizations have implemented a series of flame retardant laws and regulations, and people's awareness of fire safety is constantly increasing, promoting the rapid development and widespread application of flame retardant products and technologies.
Environmentally friendly flame retardants and technologies have rapidly developed, forming an industrial situation where brominated crude combustion materials and halogen-free flame retardant materials coexist.
In recent years, the research and development of environmentally friendly flame retardants and halogen-free flame retardant systems have formed a more active development trend in the fuel industry with the rapid development of China's manufacturing industry. Although there is a certain amount of production of environmentally friendly flame retardants in China, they are not scaled up and account for a small proportion in flame retardant products. Scientific researchers are still enthusiastic about developing new products. The environmentally friendly flame retardant market is a very competitive market, and many companies do not provide all types of flame retardants.
