Methanol is a volatile, flammable and colorless liquid which is highly toxic in nature. Often abbreviated as MeOH, methanol represents the simplest alcohol with the chemical formula CH3OH. Earlier (till 1920's), the dry distillation of wood was the only method for methanol production. Today, methanol is predominantly produced by the reforming of natural gas with steam and then converting and distilling the resulting synthesized gas mixture to create pure methanol.
Methanol is a versatile chemical that finds applications in two main industries- chemicals and energy. Its three major downstream products related to the chemical industry are: acetic acid, formaldehyde and DMT (Dimethyl Terephthalate) which together consume around half of its total global production. The first two derivatives (acetic acid and formaldehyde) have well diversified applications in adhesives for plywood, particle board and laminates; in resins to treat plastic and paper; in paints and varnish removers; in solvents for the textile industry; in polyester fibers for clothing and carpeting, etc. In the shipping industry, methanol serves as an environmentally friendly and affordable alternative to heavy fuel oil by reducing CO2 emissions. Among the energy related applications of methanol, gasoline blending, biodiesel and production of DME (Dimethyl Ether) & MTBE (Methyl-Tertiary-Butyl-Ether) are the segments with a great potential in the coming years.
Looking forward, China is expected to represent the biggest driver of the global methanol market. Its demand is expected to grow faster than its domestic production catalyzed by the increasing demand of acetic acid, DME (Dimethyl Ether), gasoline blending and the emerging Methanol-to-Olefins (MTO) technology.
IMARC's new TMMR “Methanol Market - Industry Trends, Prices, Manufacturing Process, Applications, Raw Materials, Manufacturers, Regional Breakup and Mass Balance” provides a technical, analytical and statistical insight into the methanol market. The market analysis includes volume trends, value trends, price trends, key players, market breakup by region, market breakup by end-use industries, key success factors, key risk factors, feedstock market trends, import trends, export trends, etc. Apart from the market analysis, the report also provides an exhaustive technical insight on methanol. This includes chemical information, manufacturing process, chemical reactions involved, raw material requirements, mass balance, conversion rate of feedstocks, etc. The study, which is based both on desk research and multiple waves of qualitative primary research, is a must-read for entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, consultants, business strategists, and all those who are planning to foray into the methanol industry in any manner.
