The Melamine Formaldehyde Market is growing, owing to the huge demand for manufacturing laminates and adhesives

Melamine formaldehyde is derived from the polymerization of melamine and formaldehyde. It is a hard thermosetting plastic that is a highly versatile synthetic polymer which exhibits a range of properties such as high structural stability, high resistance to heat and fire than that compared to polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride. Melamine formaldehyde finds applications in various industries such as construction, furniture, automobile, textile, paper, electrical and household among others. The construction and furniture industry was the major consumer of melamine formaldehyde in 2012.

The global melamine formaldehyde market is growing, owing to the huge demand for manufacturing laminates and adhesives. Apart from this, melamine formaldehyde is widely used in the construction industry in the form of sulfonated melamine formaldehyde in concrete plasticizers. Growing population coupled with increase in urbanization drives the overall construction industry, which in turn is expected to boost the growth of the overall melamine formaldehyde market. Increasing demand for laminates and adhesives in China, especially due to the presence of huge secondary processed manufacturing industry in this region, is expected to boost the growth of the melamine formaldehyde market. Moreover, the increasing population and changing lifestyle also plays a crucial role in boosting the growth of construction and furniture industry and thus, further augments the demand for melamine formaldehyde. However, the volatile prices of melamine are expected to restrain the growth of the market. The huge demand and supply gap for the raw material further increases the price of melamine thus, hampering the growth of melamine formaldehyde market. Development of advanced melamine formaldehyde which offers wide range of benefits in the automobile industry is expected to boost the demand for melamine formaldehyde.
