"The second largest growth market is antimony oxide. Aluminum trihydroxide, or, in short, ATH, remains the most important type of flame retardant nevertheless." Regional differences are considerable: While halogenated flame retardants are still dominating the Chinese market, ATH compounds are accounting for about half of total market volume in Western Europe and North America.
