Increasing Bromine Applications as Flame Retardant to Spur Demand, Volume Sold to Surpass 718,139.5 Tons by 2031: Future Market Insights

– Future Market Insights’ (FMI’s) latest research study presents a holistic overview of the bromine market. The study uncovers hidden growth prospects and highlights key opportunities driving the demand outlook across key segments including derivative, application, and end use. It also reveals the scope of expansion for the bromine market in the coming decade

DUBAI, UAE, Sept. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — As per the latest study conducted by FMI, the global bromine market is estimated to reach US$ 2.4 billion in 2021. In response to the increasing application across industries such as oil & gas, chemical, electronics, and others, the market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 2.7% over the forecast period 2021-2031 in comparison to 1.5% CAGR registered between 2016 and 2031.

Sales of bromine are expected to showcase year-on-year increase of 3.2% in 2021, owing to the increasing use of bromine in water treatment, flame retardants, oil and gas drilling, and flow batteries among others. In addition to this, increasing demand from automotive and pharmaceutical sectors will accelerate the bromine sales.

Increasing number of fire accidents across the world has created a high demand for materials having fire-retarding properties. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), approximately 481,500 structure fires were reported in the U.S., causing property damages of worth US$ 12.3 billion in 2019. As bromine compounds possess high fire resistant properties, they are extensively used in flame retardants, which will continue driving the sales of bromine through the course of the report’s assessment period.

The flame retardant segment is expected to remain the most remunerative category in terms of application. Increasing usage of brominated flame retardants in everyday commodities such as rubber, textiles, washing machine, computers, televisions, and others to reduce their flammability is favoring the segment growth.

Due to the decline in availability of underground brines, leading manufacturers are adopting strategies such as smart procurement of bromine and its derivatives in order to secure their margins and maintain their production capacity,” says the FMI analyst.
