Melamine Formaldehyde Market, by Application (Laminates, Wood Adhesives, Molding Compounds, Surface Coatings, and Others) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014-2022

Melamine formaldehyde or melamine resin is an aminoplast resin formed from polymerization of melamine and formaldehyde. It is used in furniture, automobile, construction, textile, paper, electrical, household, and other industries due to its enhanced fire & thermal resistance, as well as its ability to provide protection against moisture, scratch, and chemicals. Furthermore, it can be modified into foam and used as a soundproofing material too.

The global melamine formaldehyde market is expected to grow at a moderate rate during the forecast period. At present, Asia-Pacific holds the largest share of the market in terms of value & volume, followed by Europe. This growth is attributed to developments in construction, furniture, and packaging industries as well as high demand for MF in China. However, the fluctuation in raw material prices and the carcinogenic nature of the resin could restrict the market growth. Moreover, rise in demand for MF resin in automobile industry and effective substitution of urea formaldehyde are expected to provide growth opportunities. The global melamine formaldehyde market size was valued at $430 million in 2015, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% to reach $687 million by 2022.

The melamine formaldehyde market is segmented based on application and geography. On account of applications, it includes laminates, wood adhesives, molding compounds, surface coatings, and others. Moreover, according to experiments conducted by Mei Xuan et al in 2013, it can act as a solid sorbent for removal of toxic metal; and as a recyclable oil adsorbent based on work done by Yu Yang et al in 2014. In addition, the polymer can also be used in combination with polyvinyl alcohol and nano silver as wound dressings for diabetic foot disease according to studies conducted in 2015.

Melamine formaldehyde market stood at $410 million in 2015 and is expected to reach $655 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 6.9% during 2016-2022, According to a new report published by Allied Market Research. Laminates dominated the market and is expected to continue this trend during the forecast period.

Melamine formaldehyde is a thermal resistant polymer used in the manufacturing of laminates, decorative panels, wood adhesives, molding compounds, and as cross linking agent in surface coatings. The market is segmented based on applications and geography. The raw material for melamine formaldehyde comprise melamine, formaldehyde, alkalis, tetrahydrofuran, and other chemicals.

In 2015, the laminates segment held more than two-fifths share and is expected to continue this trend during the forecast period. This is due to the extensive need for protection of furniture from severe environmental conditions that is provided by melamine formaldehyde coating, due to its excellent heat and thermal resistance.
Fluctuation in prices of raw material and government regulations related to melamine & formaldehyde could hamper the market growth. Moreover, surge in demand for melamine formaldehyde in the automotive industry and replacement of urea formaldehyde in various products could create growth opportunities for the market players. In 2015, the wood adhesives segment of application accounted for second largest share of this market, in terms of revenue. However, the surface coating segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR, in terms of value and volume.
