About Methanol Market

Methanol, or wood alcohol, is a simple hydrocarbon which is widely used as feedstock for the production of chemicals and as a fuel for specialized vehicles. Historically, methanol was produced from the destructive distillation of wood. However, advances in various industrial processes have resulted in its production through a catalytic process involving carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen.

Methanol is being widely used in gasoline blends. The blended product can be used as a more efficient transportation fuel compared with clean gasoline. This is because of the ability of methanol to enhance the octane number of gasoline, which enables vehicles using gasoline blended with methanol to have better thermal efficiency and lower tailpipe emissions. This global increase in the use of methanol in gasoline blends is contributing to the demand for methanol.

New Report Released: Global Methanol Category - Procurement Market Intelligence Report 2017-2021.

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key suppliers in the Global Methanol Category - Procurement Market Intelligence Report: Methanex, MHTL, SABIC, Zagros, and YaNzhou Coal Mining Company Limited.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One of the best procurement practices for the buyers is to select suppliers that have engaged in forward contract or hedging for raw materials. Hedging or forward contracting helps suppliers to lock prices at which raw materials will be procured during the contract tenure.”

According to the report, a major growth driver of this market is the growing use of methanol in fuel blends. Methanol is being widely used in gasoline blends. The blended product can be used as a more efficient transportation fuel when compared with clean gasoline.

Further, the report states that a key procurement challenge faced by buyers is the high storage costs and degradation in quality due to improper handling. This is because methanol is highly volatile and has the property to absorb moisture from the air.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains actionable insights to improve source-to-contract cycle performance in addition to a PESTLE analysis.
