As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Melamine Formaldehyde Market Report by Product Type (Methylated Formaldehyde, Non-Methylated Formaldehyde), Grade (Industrial Grade, Reagent Grade), Application (Laminates, Molding Powder, Paints, Surface Coatings, Adhesives, Thermal Insulation Foams, and Others), End-Use Industry (Construction and Building, Packaging, Electronics, Wood and Furniture, Automotive, Chemicals, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global melamine formaldehyde market reached a volume of 1,477.7 Kilo Tons in 2023. 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.

Global Melamine Formaldehyde Market Trends:

The growing applications of melamine formaldehyde in diverse industries represent one of the major factors bolstering the market growth. Melamine formaldehyde is used to make household crockery items, such as glasses, cups, bowls and plate moldings, as they are heat-, scratch- and impact-resistant. In the automotive sector, it is utilized to manufacture automobile interiors in the form of decorative laminates and surface coatings. Furthermore, various manufacturers are using melamine formaldehyde and bamboo mixture for producing environment-friendly products with the increasing environmental consciousness. Moreover, several leading players are making considerable investments in research and development (R&D) projects to manufacture cost-effective and better-quality melamine formaldehyde products. On account of these factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% during 2024-2032.
