About Methanol

Methanol is a volatile, colorless, toxic, and flammable liquid. It is processed using a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide, which collectively, is called as synthesis gas or syngas. This syngas is produced by heating hydrocarbon-rich substances with metal catalysts. Usually, the hydrocarbon used is natural gas (methane). Currently, most methanol production facilities make use of coal and natural gas as hydrocarbon sources. Methanol is also made from feedstock such as fossil fuels, including natural gas and coal.

The analysts forecast the global methanol market to grow at a CAGR of 11.09% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: – Global Methanol Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global methanol market: Celanese, Methanex, Mitsubishi Gas Chemical, Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS), and SABIC.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BASF, Methanol Holdings (Trinidad), and Reliance Industries.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in market is focus of automotive manufacturers on reduction of carbon footprints by using biodiesels. The growth in the automotive sector is driven by the growth in the production of passenger vehicles, especially hybrid commercial vehicles. Increasing environmental regulations and pollution control measures are increasing the prominence of hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), which are driven by a combination of electric motor and internal combustion engines (ICEs). These vehicles are energy-efficient, eco-friendly, and offer performance benefits such as increased acceleration and lower maintenance costs. In addition to the aforementioned benefits, these vehicles are being promoted by government agencies globally as they reduce the consumption of conventional fuels and do not cause noise and air pollution. Along with making the vehicles energy-efficient, manufacturers are focusing on using biodiesels such as methane as they weigh less than their synthetic counterparts and are green.”

According to the report, one driver in market is rising demand for methanol from China. The global market for methanol is expected to reach $54.30 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 11.09% annually. China is a leading country in the global market. The demand for methanol and its derivatives in China has been rising progressively since the 1980s, as the country has embraced methanol as a clean transportation fuel. The low cost of methanol as compared with conventional fuels globally, is further encouraging methanol fuel blending. The process is gaining momentum in emerging economies such as India, Brazil, and China, primarily because methanol blends offer clean fuel benefits at a low cost. The adoption of methanol as an alternative fuel and the advantage associated with methanol being able to use alternative feedstocks such as coal and natural gas in countries like China, which have limited domestic oil reserves, are propelling the growth of the global market. Methanol is an ideal solution for China as it aids in meeting the country's increasing fuel demand and strengthens its domestic energy economy.

Further, the report states that one challenge in market is fluctuating methanol prices. The global methanol market is extremely competitive and methanol-related products' prices are affected by the demand and supply fundamentals. In 2015, a steep decline in crude oil and related products' prices reduced the affordability of various energy-related applications for methanol. This factor ultimately lowered methanol prices by the end of 2015. China remained the most affected country due to the devaluation of the Chinese currency in 2015, coupled with the downward shift in methanol cost curve owing to lower coal and gas feedstock costs. The contract prices for methanol continued to shift lower in 2016. Thereafter, the methanol prices are likely to vary depending on new supply additions, the strength of the global economy, global energy prices, industry operating rates, and the strength of global demand. The fluctuating price of methanol will then affect the prices of methanol derivatives like formaldehyde and acetic acid.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
