DSM offers halogen-free plastics

I came across this news from DSM regarding their green engineering plastics and flame retardants. The products are halogen-free (in response to concern about halogenated flame retardants) but at the same time still deliver the required electrical, mechanical and processing performance, according to the company.

Now if several companies can offer alternatives to these concerned supposedly-toxic chemicals, why does the industry bother defending these products in the first place? Is it because the alternatives are more expensive?
