The global flame retardant industry forecast of the trend of future development
1 the application of flame retardants will be further expanded and in-depth
European and American developed countries flame retardant used for a long time, the application of the flame retardant has been widespread, with people in the increased awareness of environmental protection, safety and health, the development direction of the flame retardant mature markets in recent years gradually towards development represented by "no bromide" a new type of environmentally friendly flame retardant, all kinds of new type flame retardant products. In China, although the 2008 production of flame retardants in 180000 tons - 220000 tons, but most of these flame retardants are direct or indirect export to abroad after preliminary processing, less application in the country. Plastic, for example, around 2012, about 10% of the global plastics - adding flame retardants, and the current Chinese flame retardant plastic accounted for only about 2% of the plastic products 8, below the world average, more than Europe and the United States and other developed countries and regions, its reason is mainly due to the current domestic for flame retardant materials requirements is not to the point of compulsory execution.
2 the environmental protection without brominated flame retardants will be increasingly obvious trend
Phosphorus-containing flame retardant since the 1960 s has been widely applied, its reason is that the flame retardant efficiency of popular and good compatibility with material, the bromine flame retardants are the main products. Because the phosphorus-containing flame retardant application is a long history, in a short period of time is very difficult to find in the performance, price and environmental safety will be its entirely replace the product, so the phosphorus-containing flame retardants will not withdraw from the market in a short time, but after 50 years of application, people in many parts of the world's soil, water, air, food, and even found in human breast milk traces of bromine series flame retardant, although its concentration lethal level has not been achieved, but has caused environmental protection organizations and governments and the people's great attention and alert. Now have several type of phosphorus-containing flame retardant or component is the eu "RoHS directive"
Flame retardant 3 emerging markets will tend to perfect legislation
In the emerging markets, represented by China, the development history of flame retardants is shorter. In China, although the state has issued the "public places with the combustion performance and flame retardant products identification", "building materials combustion performance grading method", "standard of fire protection design of tall buildings" flame retardant aspects such as laws and regulations, but due to reasons such as cost, ideas and management, the practical implementation of these laws and regulations has been bad, so as the "Shanghai 11.15 teachers apartment building fire", "Beijing 2.9 CCTV new site fire", "wenzhou 12.12 WenFu building fire accidents occur frequently, such as the fire caused great losses of lives and property of the flame retardant properties of building materials is the main reason why do not conform to the rules lead to the rapid rate of flame spread, if the material treated with flame retardant, flame ignition and propagation speed will be greatly reduced, thus reducing the possibility of fire, a lot of precious time for fire rescue. With the development of China's economy, people's safety consciousness will be more and more strong, the flame retardant laws and regulations will be more perfect, in the regulatory will eventually like Europe and the United States developed countries compulsory requirements on the flame retardant properties, thereby giving impetus to the market demand of flame retardants.
