Fire regulations are becoming much more stringent in the Asia-Pacific region, resulting in increased consumption of flame retardants in end-user industries. The demand for clear brine fluids is expected to increase in Asia-Pacific and North America. The demand for bromine & its derivatives in Asia-Pacific is growing with the increasing manufacturing industry especially automotive, electronics, and textile. The other factors influencing the demand for bromine in Asia-Pacific are increasing oil & gas production, exploration activities in the region, and increasing demand for biocides in water treatment and agricultural industry. In North America, the increasing demand for bromine & its derivatives can be attributed to increasing demand of clear brine fluids in the oil & gas industry of the region.

Speak to Analyst:

However, due to environmental and public health concerns, there are certain factors that are expected to retard market growth in the future. These are:

  •     Use of some bromine-based fumigants like methyl bromide is banned in major markets in North America and Europe. Methyl bromide is an ozone depleting substance. Ban on use of certain brominated flame retardants like Deca-BDE, HBCD, and TBBPA
  •     Phosphorus, nitrogen, and chlorinated flame retardants are more environment-friendly compared to brominated flame retardants; these are considered as suitable replacements for brominated flame retardants. This may lead to a decline in the market share of brominated flame retardants in coming years
