Tetrabromobisphenol A Price Trend and Forecast

Regional Price Overview

Get the latest insights on price movement and trend analysis of Tetrabromobisphenol A in different regions across the world (Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa).

The price of bromine skyrocketed after National Day in China, making the flame retardant sector miserable. A single negotiation, or even an outright quotation, was halted.

The reasons for this were that during the entire month of September 2021, plus the constant rainy weather during National Day, the bromine content in the production of bromine from seawater dropped by 60%, and production of bromine from seawater came to a halt in September. Electricity limitation in the country resulted in the closure of a bromine production line from brine and a major reduction in production capacity.

Bromine supply in China fell in September 2021, while bromine imports soared. The fraction of supply reduction was too big, and the resulting mismatch in supply and demand led to a severe price increase. Tetrabromobisphenol A prices, which have the highest share, rose in tandem with the downstream flame retardant market of bromine.

Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA), a brominated flame retardant, although commercial samples seemingly yellow, is a white solid (not colorless). It is one of the most widely used fire retardants. TBBPA is mostly employed as a reactive component of polymers, which means it is integrated into the backbone of the polymer. By substituting some bisphenol, A, it is utilized to make fire-resistant polycarbonates. Epoxy resins used in printed circuit boards are made with a lower grade of TBBPA.

Production Processes

  • Tetrabromobisphenol A Production from Bisphenol A and Bromine

Bisphenol A (BPA) and bromine are used to make tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA). Bisphenol-A is converted to tetrabromobisphenol A by reacting it with bromine and hydrogen peroxide as an oxidant in the presence of a heterogeneous catalyst in a by-phase solution containing water and water immiscible organic solvents.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated.
