The global Tetrabromobisphenol A Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1,282.87 Mn in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5% over the forecast period 2023-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Tetrabromobisphenol A is a brominated flame retardant that finds application in printed circuit boards and electronic components due to its ability to inhibit combustion. It is produced by the bromination of bisphenol A with elemental bromine. Tetrabromobisphenol A provides effective flame retardancy to plastics and resins without hindering their mechanical and electrical properties.
Market key trends:
Stringent regulations on tetrabromobisphenol A due to environmental and health concerns: Tetrabromobisphenol A is considered toxic due to which its production and use is being restricted across many countries. Major users are shifting towards alternative flame retardants such as aluminum trihydroxide and magnesium hydroxide to comply with regulations. This is expected to hamper the demand for tetrabromobisphenol A over the forecast period.
The global tetrabromobisphenol A market is segmented by application into PCB or laminates, polyethylene, polysulfone resins and others. The PCB or laminates segment dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for the largest market share of around 60%. Tetrabromobisphenol A finds widespread application in the manufacturing of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and laminates due to its excellent flame retardant and dielectric properties. The increasing demand for PCBs from various end-use industries like electronics, automotive and construction is driving the growth of this segment.
The Global Tetrabromobisphenol A Market Size was valued at US$ 1,216.26 Mn in 2022 and is expected to witness high growth, exhibiting a CAGR of 5% over the forecast period of 2023 to 2030. Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of around 45% of the overall market in 2022.
