Market Outlook

This research has concluded that the North America methanol market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.78% in the estimated years 2019-2027.

The countries of Canada and the United States together form North America’s methanol market. MTO (methanol-to-olefins) is a relatively new technology in the methanol market. The technique is growing at a fast rate, especially for manufacturing light olefins such as propylene and ethylene, Methanol is primarily produced from coal and natural gas in regions where these raw materials are available in surplus. These low-cost raw materials help in producing methanol at a low cost in areas where the reserve of ethanol is nil or limited. Thus, the MTO technique fills the propylene and ethylene demand and supply gap from refineries and steam crackers by manufacturing large volumes of propylene and ethylene.

A majority of the raw materials that are used for producing bio-based chemicals require raw materials which are organic in nature. The basic materials required for the production of bio-based chemicals are starches, cellulose and oil. These materials can be easily extracted from plants for bio-based production. There is a lack of raw materials as for the production of bio-based products, crops such as silviculture crops are used for the construction materials. Being a new field, there is a lack of awareness in the industry regarding the production of raw materials, their transportation to the plants and complete procedure to produce bio-based products. This factor hinders the methanol market growth.

Competitive Outlook

Mitsubishi Chemicals, Valero Marketing and Supply Company, BASF AG, Methanol Holdings (Trinidad) Limited (MHTL), Methanex Corporation, Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS), Saudi Basic Industries Corporation, Teijin, Qatar Fuel Additives Company Limited, Zagros Petrochemical Company (ZPC), Mitsui & Co., Ltd. and Celanese Corporation are the biggest brands in the methanol market.
