Methanol Market: Growth Drivers and Restraints

The methanol market is driven by the rising demand for methanol from China. Methanol easily blends with conventional fossil fuels to offer clean fuel benefits at a low cost. Hence, the use of methanol as fuel has been gaining momentum in developing countries such as China, Brazil, and India. In China, methanol is emerging as an ideal solution in meeting the country’s increasing fuel demands. Besides, the high availability of coal resources has helped China to become the prominent consumer and producer of methanol worldwide. All these factors are increasing the demand and consumption of methanol in China, which is driving the market growth.

«Although the increasing adoption of the MTO technology and the increasing demand for petrochemicals in APAC will further boost the market growth, fluctuating prices of methanol might reduce the growth opportunities for market players», says an analyst at Technavio.
