Market Segmentation:

The global Melamine Based Adhesive Market Segmental Analysis 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.
