It is classified into various derivatives such as Gasoline, Formaldehyde, Methanol to Olefins/Methanol T0 Propylene (MTO/MTP), Methyl Tert-Butyl Ether (MTBE), Acetic Acid, Dimethyl Ether (DME), Methyl Methacrylate (MMA), Biodiesel, and Others.
Increase in demand for petrochemical products in various sectors is the key driving factor which is expected to boost the global methanol market growth. Furthermore, growing construction and automotive industries will increase demand for methanol globally, over the forecast period.
Moreover, expanding petrochemical sector in various region such as North America and Asia Pacific region is expected to propel the growth of global methanol market.
In addition to that, high demand for methanol based fuel in market will fuel the methanol market growth during this forecast period. Increase in usage of methanol in production of Olefins Using MTO will drive the methanol market growth.
However, availability of alternatives such as ethanol fuel or bio ethanol is expected to hamper the global methanol market. Also, hazardous impact on health will affect the global methanol market.
