Methanol Market by Feedstock(Natural Gas, Coal), Derivative(Formaldehyde, MTO/MTP, Gasoline, MTBE, MMA, Acetic Acid, DME, Biodiesel), Sub-Derivative, End-use Industry, and Region(North America, APAC, Europe, South America, MEA

Methanol, commonly known as methyl alcohol, is a chemical molecule made up of one carbon atom, two hydrogen atoms, and one oxygen atom (CH3OH). It is a clear, colorless liquid with a strong odor that is very combustible. Methanol is used to make a wide range of industrial and commercial products, including formaldehyde, acetic acid, methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE), and many others. It’s also utilized as a fuel, both directly in some engines and as a component in others. It is also utilized as a solvent and as a raw material in the production of other compounds. 

The global methanol market size is estimated to grow from USD 24.0 billion in 2020 to USD 26.6 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. The market is projected to witness decent growth in the near future, owing to the wide application in various end use industries of methanol ranging from automotive to pharmaceutical industry. Increasing demand from APAC will further drive the growth of the global methanol market.

Coal is estimated to account for the fastest growth in the methanol feedstock segment from 2021 to 2026. Coal is considered to be the sustainable alternative raw material for large-scale methanol production which is one the important reason for the increase in demand of coal as feedstock of methanol. 

Methanol-to-olefins/methanol-to-propylene (MTO/MTP) is estimated to account for the fastest growth in the methanol derivatives segment from 2021 to 2026. The growth is due to the rise in MTO/CTO plants in China to produce olefins through methanol, as the demand for olefins is growing in the petrochemical industry. The growing demand for methanol is highly attributed to its increasing demand in the automotive and construction end-use industries.
