Global Methanol Market Study 2014 - 2030

Executive Summary : - 

 Methanol is light, flammable, colorless, volatile and toxic liquid which is considered as simplest of all alcohols. It is essentially produced from natural gas or coal having odor similar to that of ethanol. It is used as a precursor to many organic chemicals such as formaldehyde, acetic acid, dimethyl ether, biodiesel, dimethyl tertiary butyl ether. The major consumer as of 2017 is Asia-Pacific and new plants are coming up in this region as well. The methanol market is relatively complex and it is affected by several factors such as environmental policies, fuel consumption, biofuel mandates and plastic consumption. Despite the negative effects of these factors, the new developments such as Methanol to Olefins (MTO) and Methanol to Propylene (MTP) have bridged the gap. Globally, formaldehyde is the largest consumer of methanol as it is used in construction industries to produce glues & adhesives, permanent-press fabrics, paper product coatings and certain insulation materials. Other derivatives of methanol include Acetic acid, Dimethyl Ether (DME), Biodiesel, MTBE and others. Major end-use applications of methanol are in automotive, pharmaceuticals, packaging, construction, electronics, and solvents industries.

The Global methanol market is expected to grow at an annual average of slightly over 4% in the long-term forecast.
