Methanol market in Poland accounted for a share of over five percent in the overall demand sector of methanol market in Europe. Methanol production in Poland during the last decade was minimal, as most of the domestic demand was fulfilled by competitively priced imports from Russia and the Netherlands. This trend is expected to continue in the coming decade. Fuels were the leading end-use sector in the methanol market in Poland in 2011.

Not many major players are involved exclusively in the marketing of methanol in Poland. There are active spot, methanol markets in various locations all across Europe, which are supply-demand driven and have been characterized by increased volatility over recent years, depicting the evolution of the markets toward a dependence on a small number of large-scale methanol producers. Outside of the spot markets, there exists very little forward-trading activity, with no such activity in some locations. Furthermore, there are no options markets.

Many organizations in Poland following Responsible Care and Responsible Distribution are also implementing “Lean” production methods to improve manufacturing processes, increase efficiency and reduce costs throughout the value chain. Lean manufacturing seeks to eliminate all waste from a production system. Methanol value chain companies can benefit from leveraging their lean production implementation plans to support their sustainability efforts.
