Melamine Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast (2013 - 2019)

Melamine is an organic, heterocyclic compound containing nitrogen as a major constituent in its structure. Melamine products are highly flame retardant due to their high nitrogen content. Melamine is produced industrially on a large scale by either catalyzed gas phase or high pressure liquid phase reactions. In some cases, molten urea is passed over fluidized bed to carry out reaction with the help of catalysts. Melamine when reacted with formaldehyde forms melamine formaldehyde (MF) which shows excellent properties when crosslinked and has wide area of applications.

On the basis of its applications, the melamine market is made up of segments such as laminates & wood adhesives, molding powder, paints & coating, among others. The thermoset product of melamine i.e. melamine formaldehyde (MF) is widely used in dinnerware and food container. Melamine foam has an altogether different molecular structure and exhibits excellent insulation applications. Special applications of melamine include high resistance concrete, nitrogen-carbon source for carbon nanotubes etc. According to melamine production we can segment it geographically as Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, South America and RoW Asia-Pacific has been the largest market for melamine in the recent past along with Rest of the World. Amongst all China is expected to show the largest demand for melamine in the near future.

One of the major driving factors for this market is current increase in demand for laminates and adhesives. Changing life styles and ready availability of melamine which is a raw material of molding powder have also been factors driving the market in the past few years. However toxicity of melamine can restrict the market, if regulations regarding toxicity are considered. However, treated melamine in a small quantity as a protein source for animals is expected to be one of the future trends.

BASF SE, Sichuan Chemical Holdings Co. Ltd. OCI Melamine, Sichuan Golden Elephant Chemical Co, Shandong Liaocheng Luxi Chemical Co, Cornerstone Chemical Company, Qatar Melamine Co, Shanxi Fenghe Melamine Co, Mitsui Chemicals Inc, Henan Zhongyuan Dahua Group Co Ltd and Mitsui Chemicals Inc are some of the leading manufacturers for melamine.
