As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Melamine Formaldehyde Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” the global melamine formaldehyde market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Melamine formaldehyde (MF), with the chemical formula C4H6N6O, is a thermoset plastic that is hard, durable and versatile with good heat and fire resistance. Also known as melamine resin, it is made from the polymerization of formaldehyde with melamine. The melamine reacts with formaldehyde under slightly alkaline conditions to form mixtures of various methylolmelamines. MF can be converted to foam structures with a distinctive pore structure and is also used as an insulating and soundproofing material.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
