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.

“Upsurge in furniture and construction industries, increase in disposable income in the emerging economies, and increased focus of government bodies on controlled formaldehyde emission are the prime factors that propel the demand for melamine formaldehyde. However, availability of substitutes at lesser cost have the potential to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.”, according to Eswara Prasad, Team Lead, Chemical & Materials at Allied Market Research.
