Due to solid demand fundamentals, melamine resins prices in China increased by more than 2% in the first few days of February. Manufacturers of melamine were forced to maintain price increases due to the ongoing increase in urea costs and the high level of demand from both the domestic and global markets.
At the end of Q1, melamine was reported to cost 1765 USD/MT FOB Qingdao,China. Melamine resin price trends faced unfavourable market sentiments in the second quarter of 2022. Due to the bearish production cost of melamine following the price trajectory of the previous quarter, prices were already on the lower side in the first half.
As tensions between Russia and Ukraine grew, the price of melamine resins unexpectedly rose in the European market in the first half of 2022. Spot offtakes continued to be strong, and a sizable plant turnaround kept prices high. At the end of March , the price of melamine resins in Germany increased by close to 300-350 USD/MT from the previous quarter.
Due to increased consumer demand and a change in the price trend for foreign suppliers, Melamine prices in Q2 2022 remained on the high range. The quarter saw a sharp increase in exports from Germany and the Netherlands to other European nations as upstream laminate industries' high demand drove up prices even more.
In Q1 2022, the Melamine resin market was affected by logistics difficulties, expanded production cost and rising contract prices. Due to the USA's natural gas shortages, US melamine suppliers had to contend with an unexpected change in urea costs and decreased production rates. Melamine resin prices fell in April of Q2 2022 as a result of waning consumer demand and expanding production facilities.
Melamine's manufacturing facilities reduced operational costs in Q2 2022, which lowered prices for local and international suppliers. Prices increased at the end of the quarter as a result of strong domestic demand and changes in the price of the feedstock methanol.

Melamine Resin is a white, odourless thermosetting plastic that strengthens as heated during the production process. It is formed by the polymerization of melamine with formaldehyde. It retains its shape and structure, unlike the other plastics, which soften on heating and hardens while heated. Melamine resin is not resistant to concentrated alkalis and acid. Also, the utensils are not microwave safe as the radiations cause the polymers to break, causing food contamination.

Melamine resin is produced via the condensation of formaldehyde with melamine to give the hexa-hydroxymethyl derivative. This reaction intermediate further polymerizes upon heating to form melamine resin.
