Production and Market of Brominated Flame Retardant in China

Bromine is a natural element widely found in nature, principally in seawater, salt lakes, and underground brines associated with oil. The quantity of bromine sold or used in China in 2008 was 130,000 metric tonnes valued at $500 million. Bromine compounds are primarily used in flame retardants (49%), oilfield chemicals (19%), intermediates (15%), and brominated pesticides (mostly methyl bromide) (3%). Because of depleting reserves, distribution and economics, environmental constraints, the price of bromine rises to a great height.

Brominated flame retardants represent a commodity of growing importance and the largest use of bromine. During the last decades, the consumption of brominated flame retardants has globally grown dramatically due to the growth in the use of synthetic polymers and the introduction of more rigorous fire safety requirements.

At present, domestic consumption of flame retardants concentrates on electrical & electronics, wire & cable and motor vehicle, whose market share is 46.85%, 20.15% and 14.65% respectively in 2009.

From 2006 to 2009, domestic direct consumption has kept growing with CAGR of 18.84%, and this trend will continue in the next five years, bringing huge investment opportunities in Chinese flame retardant industry.
