Methanol (also known as methyl alcohol, wood alcohol, wood spirits and carbinol), is a widely available chemical which has physical and chemical characteristics similar to that of conventional fuels. Methanol has many industrial applications and is also found in a number of household products including varnishes, antifreeze, windscreen wash, and fuel for model aircraft. Every day approximately 225 million liters of methanol is used globally. Methanol is used to produce other chemical derivatives, which in turn are used to produce thousands of products that touch our daily lives. 

Methanol Global Market – Synopsis & Scenario

The global methanol industry has undergone dramatic changes in the past 15 years.  These changes have included a shift in regional demand dominance, the development of new end uses, and the emergence of new production centers.  These factors have resulted in new trade flows, pricing and economic dynamics which have previously not existed in the industry with closer links to other chemical product areas, adding further complexity in determining market direction. 

Methanol is a potential replacement for conventional transportation fuel such as petrol and diesel. Moreover, methanol has improved safety and low production costs, which will boost its adoption as transportation fuel. Owing to the increasing methanol use in filling stations and flexible fuel vehicles, various combinations of methanol are being used nowadays, which will drive Methanol market’s growth during the forecast years (2017 – 2022) 

Regional Analysis

In terms of geography, the APAC region accounted for the highest market shares during 2016 and is likely to continue its growth trajectory over the next four years. Much of this market’s growth in the region is attributed to the rising demand for methanol and its derivatives from the construction, automotive, textile, and furniture industries. China is one of the key leading countries in APAC, and the demand for methanol and its derivatives primarily stems from the country’s energy and petrochemicals sectors. The increasing concern for the environment has led to the implementation of regulatory mandates on producing eco-friendly products and emission control, which will further drive the market’s growth in the region in the next five years.
