The global Formaldehyde Market is expected to reach USD 15.51 Billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030. Over the projected period, the demand for Formaldehyde in the market will increase due to changing consumer preferences and increased Formaldehyde consumption for the building and construction industries.

 

Market Overview

For the manufacturing of urea-alkyd resins, which are utilised as binders for medium density particle boards and plywood, formaldehyde is a crucial feedstock component. Numerous sectors, including the plywood, automotive, construction, and healthcare, utilise formaldehyde extensively. Methanol, which is primarily utilised in the manufacturing of resins, is often used to create formaldehyde. Additionally, it functions as a drying agent, plasticizer, and solvent. Demand for formaldehyde has increased as a result of rising construction and infrastructure investment for various parts and reinforcing applications. Formaldehyde is currently being utilised progressively to make fertilisers, paper, and resins. Automotive, building & construction, agricultural, cosmetics, and chemical are a few of the most significant end-use sectors for formaldehyde. In the upcoming years, the formaldehyde market is anticipated to grow as a result of recent industry expansion. Composites made of formaldehyde are also becoming more and more popular because of their many benefits, including the fact that they considerably increase the rate of wood usage and reduce wood waste. However, the formaldehyde industry's players may anticipate to face significant difficulties due to strict restrictions and escalating environmental and human health concerns. In attempt to stem the spread of the virus, the main economies imposed national lockdowns and trade restrictions in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, which had an adverse effect on the development of numerous sectors. Demand for formaldehyde decreased as a result of the covid pandemic's persistent impact on the automotive and construction industries. Although there has been a steady rise in the demand for formaldehyde as a disinfectant in businesses, its demand from the pharmaceutical and agricultural sectors. However, there was an improvement in the state of the formaldehyde market following the resume of industrial activities and relaxations in the lockdown. The market is expected to be driven by the soaring demand from sectors including building & construction, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, and personal care during the projected period.
