Melamine is an organic compound with the formula C₃H₆N₆. This white solid is a trimer of cyanamide, with a 1,3,5-triazine skeleton. Like cyanamide, it contains 67% nitrogen by mass, and its derivatives have fire retardant properties due to its release of nitrogen gas when burned or charred.

Melamine Nature

Melamine formaldehyde (also called melamine or MF) is a hard, very indestructible, and multifaceted thermosetting aminoplast with good fire and heat resistance. It is made from melamine and formaldehyde by condensation process of the two monomers.

Melamine Uses

Melamine is combined with formaldehyde and other agents to produce melamine resins. Such resins are characteristically durable thermosetting plastic used in high pressure decorative laminates such as melamine dinnerware, laminate flooring. Melamine foam is often used as insulation, soundproofing material and in polymeric cleaning products, such as Magic Eraser etc.

Its contains heat-resistant properties. Melamine is also effective for kitchen tools that are widely used when handling hot soups and boiling water. As melamine is such a great insulator, it’s also ideal for cold food and buffet displays.

Melamine and its salts are also used as fire-retardant additives in paints, plastics, and paper. Melamine foam is one of the special form of melamine resin.

Melamine resin makes it very strong and shatter-resistant, making melamine products more desirable as compared to other plastic housewares.

Melamine Global Market

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share for melamine market owing to large concentration of laminates & adhesives in the region.

China was one of the largest market in Asia Pacific and is expected to dominate the market due to growing infrastructure development and favorable regulations supporting industrial growth.

Melamine is expected to portray significant growth due to large demand from end-use applications particularly in Middle East.

Europe held the second largest market share. However, Furthermore, stringent regulations related to the use of toxic chemicals in Europe pose as a major barrier for melamine market growth. North America contributed for a least market share in the melamine market. There are so many global key players across the world.
