Melamine is a chemically organic base and a trimer of cyanamide. Melamine-based adhesives are produced by a combination of melamine with formaldehyde. These adhesives possess high durability, superior hardness, and high resistance to fire and heat. It is a thermosetting plastic produced by polymerization of melamine with other compounds. Moreover, it exhibits high moisture durability and high flexibility.
According to MRFR analysis, the global melamine-based adhesives market is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR of 6% by the end of 2030. Diverse applications of melamine-based adhesives in various end-use industries such as building and construction, automotive, and packaging, among others. Moreover, growing construction industries in the emerging economies of Asia-Pacific and Latin America is likely to drive the global market growth further. In addition, growing demand for portable housing to reduce the loss caused by natural calamities across the globe results in more consumer spending on housing and construction activities, which boosts the global market growth. As these adhesives effectively bind the lightweight construction materials which ensure easy excavation and reconstruction in case of any disaster. Moreover, the augmented usage of wood in construction activities, specifically for aesthetic purpose, is anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities to the market players. Furthermore, the growing consumption of melamine-based adhesives in automobiles for light-weighting vehicles to reduce carbon emissions is further expected to create immense opportunities for the producers of melamine-based adhesives.
However, high carcinogenic effects of melamine are likely to hinder the global market growth during the review period.
