Melamine Based Adhesives Market Size, Top Manufacturers, Product Types, Applications and Specification, Forecast to 2023

“Melamine Based Adhesives Market”
Melamine Based Adhesive Market by Type, by End Use Industries, by Region – Forecast till 2023

Market Synopsis:

Melamine is an organic base and a trimer of cyanamide. The melamine adhesives or melamine resins are synthesized by combination of melamine with formaldehyde. It is a hard thermosetting plastic material made by polymerization reaction. The melamine based adhesives are classified into melamine formaldehyde, urea-melamine, and urea melamine formaldehyde. The melamine based adhesives exhibit properties such as high durability, hardness, and good fire & heat resistance. In addition to this melamine adhesives have high moisture durability and greater flexibility. Melamine adhesives find applications in many end use industries such as building & construction, automobile, household, packaging and others. It is also used for bonding the heavy use industrial materials such as warm water resistance grade panel and moisture resistance grade panel.

Global melamine adhesives market is driven mainly by thriving building & construction industry. The increasing standard of living of people around the world is encouraging them to spend more on housing and other construction activities.  Another key factor favoring the growth of melamine based adhesives market is the demand of portable housing to mitigate loss caused by natural disaster such as floods and earthquake. The melamine based adhesives effectively bound the light weigh construction materials which enable the easy excavation and reconstruction in case of natural calamity. Apart from this, light weight vehicles market witnessing the rise in demand on account of increasing need to reduce carbon emission. The use of wood in construction activities especially for aesthetic purpose is growing, which is projected to fuel the demand of melamine based wood adhesives. However, in recent years the carcinogenic effects of melamine have been noticed, which may influence the market dynamics. The toxicity level of melamine is also a matter of concern for the market. Nevertheless, the technological advancements to mitigate the adverse impacts of melamine on ecosystem are gaining the momentum.

Market Segmentation:

The global melamine based adhesive market is segmented on the basis of type, end use industries, and region. Based on type the market is divided into melamine formaldehyde, urea-melamine, and melamine urea formaldehyde. Melamine formaldehyde is holding a major share in terms of demand among the others, on account of its application in construction industry. Applications of melamine formaldehyde include its use as a key constituent in manufacturing high pressure laminates such as Formica and Arborite. Apart from this, the use of melamine in making the kitchenware and utensils is driving the demand of melamine based adhesives. Following melamine formaldehyde, urea-melamine is majorly used melamine based adhesive. Its uses can be found in bonding the materials complex industrial processes such as warm water resistant grade panel and also moisture resistant grade panel. The low cost of raw material for synthesizing urea-melamine adhesive is an important factor propelling its demand over the others. Lastly, the melamine urea formaldehyde is used in making laminates such as manufacturing of flooring tiles from wood and bamboo, finger jointing of waste timber in saw mills. In addition to this, there is an increasing demand of melamine urea formaldehyde in making aesthetic wooden items, and in polymeric and glass glazing is expected to fuel growth of the global melamine based adhesives.

On the basis of end use industries the global melamine market is segmented into building & construction, automotive, household, paper & packaging, and others. Among them, building & construction industry is pulling maximum demand of melamine based adhesives owing to an increasing public as well as private investment in this industry. In addition to this, the developing countries are rapidly taking up the infrastructural projects for complete economic development which is anticipated to boost the growth of overall melamine based adhesives market. The melamine based adhesives foresee growth in demand from automotive industry for bonding the light polymeric materials used in automotive parts. Moreover, the use of melamine based adhesives is increasing for making utensils and other kitchenware. In coming years, the cost intensive stainless steel utensils & kitchenware are anticipated to be replaced by those made from other light weight polymer based materials. This is projected to propel the growth of global melamine based adhesives market. The penetration of melamine based adhesives in paper & packaging industry has witnessed steady rise in the past years, which is estimated to rise further throughout the forecast period. Their uses in paper & packaging can be found in aerial packaging, vacuum packaging, and hot packaging where it is necessary for adhesive to prevent moisture & gas, and withstand heat. The culture of food on the go is poised to increasing the demand of melamine based adhesives in packaging of ready to eat food.
