New York, USA, Jan. 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Melamine Overview

According to a Comprehensive Research Report by Market Research Future (MRFR), 'Melamine Market Information by Form, Application, End-Use Industry, and Region - Forecast till 2028', the market is estimated to grow at a 5.1% CAGR to reach USD 11.57 Billion by 2028.

Market Synopsis

Melamine's demand has been surging exponentially worldwide, owing to the robust growth of the global construction sector along with the soaring demand for low-emission and lightweight automobiles.

Melamine reacts easily with formaldehyde to form melamine-formaldehyde/MF resins. Various melamine resin types are hexamethoxymethyl, melamine-urea-formaldehyde (MUF), melamine pyrophosphate, and etherified melamine.

MF resins are vastly deployed in the manufacturing of laminated wooden panels, exhibiting great resistance to stains, heat, chemical reactions, and abrasion. Therefore, these are mostly used in construction applications like furniture, remodeling as well as specialties laminates that have electrical applications.Get Free Sample PDF Brochure URL URL

Market USP Covered:

Market Drivers:

Fast urbanization rate, rise in disposable income, and the surge in living standards are some of the top factors influencing the building and construction sector. This has ultimately been favorable for the melamine market. Melamine foams have significant sound absorption as well as flame retardancy abilities. These are, therefore; extensively used in acoustic panels, buildings, metal ceiling panels, and suspended baffles.

Some eminent companies like BASF SE, Zhong Yuan Da Hua Co. Ltd and OWA Sonex are focused on producing flexible melamine foams, which have important applications in sectors like transportation, consumer products such as cleaners, as well as construction.

Melamine resins find widespread use in the development of adhesives which are largely deployed in hotline fixing of car seats, panel laminations, trim, headlamps, and various interior component assemblies within the automotive sector. Therefore, the mounting significance of lightweight vehicles that produce low emissions and are fuel efficient eliminates the need for fixtures like nuts, clamps and screws in automotive assembling.

Market Restraints:

The melamine industry's growth rate can be impeded by strict government laws and restrictions as well as the volatile prices of raw materials.

COVID 19 Analysis

The COVID-19 outbreak as well as the subsequent lockdown has had a brutal effect on the automotive industry, with the temporary shutdown of manufacturing facilities and a reduction in road traffic. Many industries like packaging, and construction faced revenue losses following the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic due to travel bans and the overall economic downfall worldwide.

Disruptions in supply chains and the fall in demand in various countries following the pandemic outbreak affected the melamine market. Weakened investments and exports are the latest trends, with the trend becoming more pronounced now with the rising trade tensions between countries.

However, with the lockdown now being lifted up and a major focus on curbing the spread of the novel coronavirus, players are now able to continue with their business and also concentrate on strengthening their supply chains. This can mean a quicker recovery for the worldwide market in the upcoming period.
