Flame retardants are chemicals that are being added to combustible materials to make them more resistant to ignition. Being inert and having low absorptivity towards oil, it is sometimes surface treated to make it hydrophobic. Apart from being a flame retardant, it is replacing titanium di-oxide because of its high brightness without color darkening. Moreover inorganic retardants such as alumina tri-hydrate (ATH) are used more commonly to achieve flame resistance in fiber reinforced polymer (FRP). 

Due to fast growing construction sector and ever increasing electronics industry, the consumption of ATH flame retardants in APAC is high as compared to American region as is clearly seen from the graph. But, the global share of revenue generated from APAC is less than Americas due to the availability of low priced raw materials and comparatively less labor cost. In transport sector, broad ranges of ATH fire retardant solutions are used due to their efficiency. In automobiles, ATH flame retardant plastics are used under the bonnet and in the passenger compartments. Moreover, the rise in usage of mass transportation globally has led to the increase in safety concern of passengers and vehicles where in ATH flame retardants are being used as coatings for steels and paints being used in automobiles industry. 

The global ATH flame retardant market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of over 3.69% during the forecasted period and will reach $635.72 million in 2021.
