The report ‘Melamine Market Share, Size, Trends, & Industry Analysis Report, [By Type (Resin and Foam), By Application (Laminates, Wood, Adhesives, Molding Compounds, Paints & Coatings), By End-use (Construction, Automotive, OEM), By Regions]: Segment Forecast, 2019 – 2026’ offers a wide analysis of different applications in along with insights related to current and future trends in the market.
Melamine is a chemical substance, obtained in two forms including melamine resins and melamine foams. The chemical content of the two product types is almost same and are used depending upon the type of applications. Melamine is an extensively used chemical compound on account of its superior chemical, mechanical properties, and flame-retardant properties.
Melamine is mainly used in laminates and wood adhesives. Increasing construction spending with growing disposable income of the consumers has led to growth in melamine consumption. With recovery and advancements in the developing nations, the consumer spending on home decor products and luxury furniture has increased which has directly risen the demand for wood adhesives and laminates.
The demand of melamine mainly follows the level of development in the economies, where the demand in most of the downstream sectors is influenced by the general economic conditions. Automotive production, remodeling, construction, and original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are the few major end-use segments for melamine. In Addition to this, technological trends such as reduction of formaldehyde emissions in anticipated to become a growth factor for melamine as it is a strong formaldehyde-binding agent.
Asia Pacific is the most lucrative region for the melamine market with China as the single major participant, accounting for a share of over 40% of the total market consumption. China is expected to witness rapid growth till 2022 with anticipated increased production and additional capacities. The local consumption in the country is expected to be driven by the rapid growth in the real estate market. Melamine consumption in the automobile coatings is expected to witnesses moderately slower growth whereas its use in surface coatings for metal containers and appliances is likely to grow.
