Increasing fire safety regulations in various industries is estimated to be the most prominent driving factor for the global bromine market. Large part of bromine that is produced annuallly is consumed for the flame retardant application. In 2016, around 46% of the overall bromine produced was consumed for flame retardant application. 

Apart from flame retardant application, bromine is been used in wide range of applications. Bromine is also preferablly used in water treatment applications. Increasing regulation pertinent to water treatment is estimated to boost the market demand in various geographies. Conventional bromine applications include,  oil & natural gas production, biocides, organic intermediates and others. Along with these applications, growing end-use industries namely personal care, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals is set to boost the bromine market demand over the forecast period.
