Melamine is a white crystalline powder with 99.8% purity and is commonly used in the production of melamine-formaldehyde (MF) resins. Melamine-based resins are moisture-resistant and hard. Melamine contains nearly 66% nitrogen by mass. Thus, it offers flame-retardant properties when mixed with resins. MF resins release nitrogen gas when burned or charred. Melamine is used in a broad range of applications such as laminates, adhesives, molding compounds, surface coatings, paper treatments, textile resins, and flame retardants. Rapid urbanization, increase in disposable income, and rise in standard of living are key factors contributing to robust growth of the building and construction industry. This serves as one of the key drivers for the melamine market. MF resins are widely employed in the manufacture of laminated wooden panels. These resins exhibit strong resistance to heat, stain, abrasion, and chemical reaction; thus, these are extensively employed in construction applications. Volatility in raw material prices and increasing consumer concern toward formaldehyde emission from melamine-based molding compounds are key inhibitors for the market. However, melamine foams are anticipated to offer growth opportunities as they exhibit high sound absorption capacity and possess an intrinsic property of flame retardancy. Thus, these foams can be used in buildings, suspended baffles, acoustic panels, and metal ceiling panels.
