Flame Retardant Chemicals Market Reviewed in New Report Published by MarketPublishers.com

LONDON – Forecasts say the world market for flame retardant chemicals will approach 1.9 million metric tons by 2012, amounting to an estimated USD 5.1 billion.

Increased security measures and the new regulatory guidelines for reducing toxic chemicals are major drivers for flame retardants demand. With governments setting new standards for flammability and smoke for a range of products, innovation takes the front seat with a chance of entering the market and making it big. Nanotechnology is expected to be the next big thing in the context of improving performance, creating, amongst others, polymer-clay composites.

New report “Flame Retardant Chemicals - A Global Market Overview” elaborated by Industry Experts has been recently published by Market Publishers Ltd.
