Hence, increasing demand for these plastics across automotive and consumer electronics, owing to their lightweight and durability is anticipated to boost the market. As per FMI, the market is poised to expand at 7.2% CAGR during the forecast period from 2021 and 2031.

Further, fine hydrates are non-toxic, halogen-free, non-corrosive, and excellent flame retardant which imparts at relatively high temperatures. Attributed to these properties, they are finding a wide range of applications in paints and coatings, adhesives, fire hydrants, varnishes, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) sectors, which is in turn, boosting the market.

In addition to this, increasing the use of fine hydrate as a substitute for titanium dioxide in the production of pigments is estimated to accelerate the sales at year-over-year growth of 7.40% through 2021.

Based on applications, the cable compound is projected to remain the dominant segment in the market for the assessment period. Surging applications of fine hydrates in insulating and jacketing compounds for wires with varying voltage requirements are favoring the growth in the segment.

“With the introduction of nanotechnology, key players in the market are emphasizing on introducing novel product using fine hydrates and nanoclays to reduce the flammability of matrices and enhance the quality of non-halogenic fire retardants. This is expected to accelerate the growth in the market in forthcoming years,” says an FMI analyst.
