Bromine Market - Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2020 to 2027

Bromine Market: Summary

The Global Bromine Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 4.4 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 4.7%.

Bromine is a naturally occurring element, found in sea, lakes, and underground well. It is the third largest halogen bearing element with atomic number 35. Bromine is widely used as a reactant and catalyst for manufacturing a variety of products, such as agrochemicals, biocides, water disinfectants, pharmaceuticals intermediates, dyes, completion fluids, flame retardants, and photographic chemicals. Dead-Sea is the richest resource of bromine with concentration of 10-12 gram per liter.

Bromine Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Driver:

  • Increasing Demand for Flame Retardants

Brominated flame retardants comprise nearly 70 chemical substances with properties that make them ideal for washing machines, computers, radio and televisions. Rapid infrastructural development across the globe is expected to result in the number of construction activities. The use of flame retardants in the construction industry is essential to meet fire safety standards and codes. Moreover, many buildings are now equipped with foam insulation to make buildings more energy-efficient. This becomes vital as energy use in buildings accounts for more than 40% of CO2 emissions. These foams are also highly flammable which makes it important that insulation foams have sufficient flame retardancy. Thus, the bromine used in these foams as a flame retardant helps to slow down the combustion in case of fire accidents. EU countries are focused on the implementation of stringent fire safety regulations in the automotive, electronics, consumer goods, and textile industries. Thus, the increasing demand for flame retardants has expected to boost the global bromine market during forecasted period.

Market Challenges:

  • Toxicological effects of brominated compounds

Brominated substance, such as flame retardant chemicals can find their way into the environment during manufacturing and can leak from products. These retardant chemicals are also released into the environment through e-waste or the uncontrolled burning and dismantling of electronic and electric waste. If exposed or inhaled, these may cause harmful effects in humans and animals such as the endocrine and thyroid disruption, reproductive toxicity, cancer, neurologic dysfunction, and adverse effects on fetal and child development.

Thus, hazardous health effects by inhalation and exposure of flame-retardant chemical is likely to hamper the market growth.
