Bromine Market 2
Bromine Market 2

The global Bromine market was stood around US$3 billion in 2020 and is expected to demonstrate the growth of 5% during the forecast period (2021-2027). Bromine is use in large number of areas ranging from agricultural chemicals to dyestuffs, and insecticides, pharmaceuticals to chemical intermediates. Owing to its usage in diversify number of industries, demand of bromine is not dependent on any single area, thus increasing the demand of bromine. Further, the largest application of bromine as a flame retardant is increasing owing to its usage in large number of industries including plastic, textiles, and electrical & electronics industries. Over the years, these industries have showcased the substantial growth with improved end use products which can sustain in the fire for a longer time, due to presence of flame retardant like bromine.

COVID-19 had a negative impact the bromine market. The consumption of bromine and bromine compound decreased in 2020. Declining consumer spending in the automotive, electronics, and construction industries as well declining halted oil & gas activities affected the demand of flame retardants and clear brine fluids respectively.
