Melamine formaldehyde or Melamine resin is a hard, thermosetting plastic material made from melamine and formaldehyde by polymerization. In its butylated form, it is dissolved in n-butanol and xylene. It is then used to cross-link with alkyd, epoxy, acrylic, and polyester resins, used in surface coatings. Melamine formaldehyde is similar to conventional Urea formaldehyde in its processing and applications. However, it has some extra advantages over Urea resins due to some of its characteristics such as better moisture-resistance. This leads to the replacement of conventional urea formaldehyde in molded plastic plates and food containers. Growth of construction and furniture industries is increasing globally. In addition to this, the demand for paper, paints & coatings, automotive, secondary processed products and textiles sectors in China are expected to drive this market during 2013 to 2019. The major constraint of the market is the volatility of its raw material prices.  The opportunities for global melamine formaldehyde market are its rising demand in automotive industry and also it’s potential as a substitute for urea formaldehyde.
