The history of flame-retardants is very old. Since the 18th century, the addition of special chemicals to the structure of some substances has been found to affect the combustion properties. Since the early 1950s, especially in the last 30 years since 1980, flame-retardants and flame retardant-reinforced polymers have played an important role in reducing the loss of life and death caused by fire. Therefore, usage area and market share are increasing. Today, paper, polymer, construction industry, wood products, electrical electronics, such as a wide range of uses and production and use of geography varies from geography to geography. In addition, flame-retardants adversely affect human and animal health. For example, endocrine and thyroid disruption, cancer, neurological function, immune system and so on. Therefore, some countries have ceased to use flame-retardants in the construction of highly produced materials. Instead, they began to investigate materials that exhibited spontaneous flame retardancy. Nevertheless, the market share of flame-retardants is increasing. North America has the largest market share, followed by China from Asia Pacific countries. Then comes the countries of Europe, South America and the last Middle East and Africa. In this study, the use of flame-retardants from past to present and market share and increase in future growth rates.
