Dec 2021. Bromine is used in numerous inorganic and organic compounds. Since it is an element, it cannot be substituted by other materials without the properties of the compound being changed, often significantly. In 2021, four bromine producers (ICL Products, Jordan Bromine, Albemarle, and LANXESS) accounted for more than 85% of the total global production capacity. The safe transportation of bromine is technically demanding and costly, and so, the production of downstream bromine chemicals has been increasingly shifting toward the two main bromine production sites in the United States and the Middle East, which has led to a consolidation of the industry and a high degree of integration. The market is dominated by the largest use of bromine, in brominated flame retardants. Another important downstream bromine market is in clear brine fluids, which are used primarily in unconventional oil production and in deep sea drilling. Overall, demand for elemental bromine is forecast to grow at 2–3% annually during 2021–26. The relatively high growth rate is driven by the recovery of the industry from the decline during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the expectation of higher oil prices.
