Methanol Market


Market Insight

The methanol is a light, flammable clear liquid that is produced by dehydration of Carbone monoxide. The methanol is harmful to humans as methanol is more toxic than ethanol. Among the derivatives of methanol, the demand of Formaldehyde is growing very rapidly. Formaldehyde is used in the various chemical reaction as they provide high purity and abundant uses with low cost. The methanol is mainly used in the formation of formaldehyde as well as, it also used in the formation of various solvents including acidic acid propylene and dimethyl ether which are used as anti-freezers. In addition, methanol is used as a fuel in various cars as they are capable of producing high speed but there is some restriction on the uses of methanol due to its high flammable property.

The rapidly growing use of methanol in energy applications such as automotive fuel, marine fuel, dimethyl ether, biodiesel and others is the driving the growth of methanol market worldwide. According to the Trusted source, the emerging energy application consumes 40% of total methanol. In addition, the rising demand for clean-burning fuel and fuel substitutes as biodiesel are anticipated to enhance the growth of the methanol market. Also, Methanol by-products are used in the several industrial applications including production of petrochemicals, synthesis of chemicals, automotive sector, construction & building and pharmaceuticals. The diverse applications of methanol in various industries are likely to boost the growth of the methanol market over the forecast period. However, Flammable property of methanol restricts its use in various applications which may hamper its market growth. Moreover, ongoing research and development activities on the use of methanol as an alternative to gasoline products are projected to create more opportunities in upcoming years.

Geographically, Asia-Pacific accounts for the largest share in the market of methanol. In the Asia-Pacific region, China dominates the market of methanol owing to its ongoing industrialization and the availability of coal and natural gas in China. Furthermore, North America and Europe regions are growing with the highest CAGR. The demand for methanol is rising globally, North America and the Europe regions have Unconventional supply of natural gas that boosts the market of methanol in this regions.
