Methanol Market by Feedstock (Natural Gas, Coal), Derivative (Formaldehyde, MTO/MTP, Gasoline, MTBE, MMA), Sub-Derivative (UF/PF Resins, Olefins), End-use Industry (Construction, Automotive), and Region

The global methanol market size is expected 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.  Methanol are used across industries, such as Construction, Automotive, Electronics, Appliances, Paints & Coatings, Insulation, Pharmaceuticals, Packaging (PET bottles) and Solvents. In the methanol market, automotive is the key end-use industry owing to the wide applications of these methanol.

The use of methanol as a fuel in ships is growing in response to international regulatory changes and cost advantages relative to other fuels. Methanol is sulfur-free, has low emissions, is three to four times cheaper than marine distillate fuel, and has a higher score on the International Martine Organization’s (IMO) energy efficiency design index (EEDI) than LNG or diesel. It has emerged as an attractive and economically viable alternative fuel, as governments and stakeholders around the world are seeking to reduce their dependency on conventional fuels. Methanol is a clean-burning marine fuel that can cost-effectively meet the shipping industry’s increasingly stringent emissions regulations. Methanol is a cost-effective alternative as a marine fuel in terms of fuel storage and bunkering infrastructure costs. As it is in liquid form, only minor modifications are needed for the current bunkering infrastructure to handle methanol. Similarly, the cost to convert fuel vessels to run on methanol is significantly low compared to the conversions of alternate fuels. Owing to this, the use of methanol as a marine fuel is growing globally, and it is used in several projects and commercial activities around the world.
