Europe Renewable Methanol Market Outlook

The Europe renewable methanol market size reached a value of USD 1.28 billion in 2021. During the forecast period of between 2023 and 2028, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.10% to reach a value of around USD 1.83 billion by 2027.

 

Key Trends in the Market

Renewable methanol is produced from non-traditional energy sources including biomass and industrial waste. It is an ideal starting point for making biodiesel, which may then be processed as a feedstock for several chemicals and combined into gasoline. Traditional methanol is produced using a nearly similar process, except that carbon monoxide is used in place of the carbon dioxide.

 

  • The automotive industry, which uses renewable methanol as a fuel for internal combustion engines, hybrid (fuel/electric) systems, and fuel cells, is a major driver of Europe renewable methanol market growth. By doing so, it aids governments in reducing greenhouse gas emissions from cars. With rising production and sales, the automobile sector is experiencing a boom worldwide and in Europe, which will further fuel the market expansion throughout the forecast period.
  • With the implementation of low-carbon fuel initiatives to reduce carbon intensity in fuels, biomethanol blends are being utilised more frequently in Europe. These measures significantly contribute to the increase in the region's demand for renewable methanol.
  • Governments have been compelled to enact strict restrictions for decreasing carbon footprints as a result of rising CO2 emissions worldwide. This has greatly increased the demand for methanol made from renewable sources during the past few years.
  • The rising production of renewable methanol from industrial and agricultural waste is also predicted to support the growth of the market throughout the forecast period.

 

Europe Renewable Methanol Market Analysis

Based on type, the market is divided into bio-renewable methanol and e-renewable methanol.

Market Share by Application

According to the Europe renewable methanol market research, rising demand for formaldehyde from the furniture industry in countries like Germany is anticipated to fuel the segment's expansion. Due to its rising demand for use in fibreglass matting in building and construction applications, Germany is one of the biggest consumers of formaldehyde in Europe.

 

It is predicted that the market share for formaldehyde will increase in the near future in Europe. This is a result of the substance's increasing incorporation in a number of end-use industries, including automotive, building and construction, oil and gas, furniture, textile, healthcare, agricultural, water treatment, and cleaning products.

 

Due to its remarkable antibacterial properties, formaldehyde is also being utilised more commonly in the production of disinfectants, vaccinations, and personal care items like toothpaste and mouthwash. Therefore, the rising demand for these items is anticipated to increase the demand for formaldehyde applications of renewable methanol in the forecast period.

 

Market Share by Country

In Europe, Germany is a significant market for renewable methanol, with an increasing need for renewable methanol due to the rising demand for formaldehyde synthesis. Additionally, as one of Europe's top manufacturers of formaldehyde, the majority of the substance is used to create polyoxymethylene, phenol-formaldehyde resins, and urea-formaldehyde resins. The growing need for these products is driving the demand for renewable methanol in Germany, which is frequently utilised in the synthesis of formaldehyde.

 

Additionally, regulations in Europe requiring the use of certain products and their blends in the automotive industry are also projected to increase the regional demand for renewable methanol. These factors will therefore likely propel the Europe renewable methanol market throughout the forecast period.

 

Competitive Landscape

Carbon Recycling International (CRI), with its headquarters in Iceland, has been producing methanol from CO2 on a large scale since 2012. The company helps its partners create renewable methanol from carbon dioxide and hydrogen for more environmentally friendly fuels, chemicals, and products.

 

OCI N.V., with its corporate headquarters in the Netherlands, is a major hydrogen product manufacturer and distributor, offering low carbon feedstock, fuels, and fertilisers to customers in the agriculture, transportation, and industrial sectors all over the world. OCI has a production capacity of over 16.3 million metric tonnes of hydrogen products per year, including melamine, biofuels, diesel exhaust fluid, nitrogen fertilisers, and methanol, across four continents.

 

Innogy SE, founded in 2016, is a provider of energy throughout Europe. The company retails electricity and gas in addition to designing, constructing, and operating power generation and renewable energy extraction facilities. Additionally, Innogy SE oversees the world's gas and electric transmission systems.

 

Other market players include Södra Skogsägarna, BASF SE, New Fuel A/S, and Nordic Green ApS, among others.

Key Questions Answered in the Report

In 2021, the market attained a value of nearly USD 1.28 billion.

The Europe renewable methanol market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.10% between 2023 and 2028.

The market is estimated to witness a healthy growth in the forecast period of 2023-2028 to reach USD 1.83 billion by 2027.

The major drivers of the market for renewable methanol in Europe include the strict restrictions by governments in the region on reducing carbon footprint, rising production of renewable methanol from industrial and agricultural waste, increasing demand for formaldehyde production, and widespread compound utilisation as marine fuel.

The expanding automotive industry, shifting trends toward sustainable energy sources, and implementation of low-carbon fuel initiatives to reduce carbon intensity are the key industry trends propelling the growth of the market.

The major players in the industry are Carbon Recycling International (CRI), OCI N.V., Södra Skogsägarna, BASF SE, Innogy SE, New Fuel A/S, and Nordic Green ApS, among others.

Renewable methanol can be produced from a variety of rich global resources. The CO2 from industrial exhaust streams or even air capture can provide the required carbon molecules to create the synthesis gas for the manufacturing of methanol.

Methanol is seen as a clean, sustainable fuel as opposed to petrochemicals. Due to its naturally clean-burning properties, it increases fuel efficiency when used in land or marine vehicles, reducing emissions.

Burning methanol typically results in nitrogen oxides, which are less harmful greenhouse gases. Also, methanol biodegrades quickly.
