Bromine Market to Partake Significant Development During 2025

Bromine market has seen various regulations owing to the production of the bromine as this product is largely a part of various segments such as flame retardant, precision cleaning, monomers, oxidizing chemical, and bleaching chemical. During the last quarter of the year 2017, Gulf Resources Inc., one of the leading bromine market players in China announced their rectifications in the bromine business. With an order from the government of Yangkou County, Shouguang City in China, the company halted its bromine production. The company is all set to support the process of rectification and inspection of their bromine production process in regulations with the new environmental policies of the China.

The regulations implicated on the bromine business to improve the safety of citizens, environmental protection, and pollution, are the major milestones in the way towards a streamlined bromine business. Gulf Resources are looking forward to complete the process and recover their drop in sales over the past months. On the other hand, the bromine market is expected to grow with Lanxess, a specialty chemicals company seen investing around 50 million dollars in the bromine market, which is a part of their greater investment strategies in U.S. sites through the year 2022.
