Global Methanol Market to Reach 107 Million Tons by 2024

Methanol, also known as wood alcohol, is a volatile, combustible, colourless and noxious liquid with the chemical formula CH3OH. It is a polar liquid at room temperature and exhibits excellent blending properties. Methanol also has a high octane and oxygen content due to which it produces a cleaner burning gasoline which helps to lower the emissions caused by vehicle exhaust.



Methanol finds broad range of applications in various industries. It is extensively used as a denaturing and anti-freezing agent. It is also used as an industrial solvent for resins and inks, adhesives to wood items, and dyes. Methanol holds a key position in the chemical industry where it is extensively used in the production of formaldehyde, acetic acid, di-methyl terephthalate (DMT) and some other solvents. Additionally, in the energy industry, it can be used either solely as a vehicle fuel or can be blended with gasoline to produce a fuel which is more efficient as compared to the conventional gasoline. According to Expert Market Research, the global methanol market reached a volume of 84 Million Tons in 2018 and is further expected to reach 107 Million Tons by 2024.
