Global Methanol Market: By End Use: Formaldehyde, Methanol to Olefins (MTO), Fuel Applications, Methyl Tert-Butyl Ether (MTBE), Acetic Acid, Methyl Methacrylate (MMA), Methylamines; By Region: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East & Africa; Historical Production and Consumption (2015-2019); Production and Consumption Forecast (2020-2025); SWOT Analysis; Value Chain Analysis; Procurement Strategy; Cost Analysis; Competitive Landscape & Supplier Analysis; Manufacturing Process; Production Cost Analysis and Project Economics

Methanol(CH3OH) is a light, volatile, flammable and poisonous liquid alcohol. It is also known as “wood alcohol”, a colourless, water soluble liquid with mild alcoholic odour. Liquid methanol provides an excellent way to conveniently and safely store and transport energy. Further, fundamental chemical products like olefins can be produced via a methanol-to-olefin (MTO) process and various organic compounds like dimethyl ether (DME), that is a potential substitute of diesel oil for its better combustion performance. During 2015-2019, the global methanol market grew at a CAGR of around 5.5%. The market is currently driven by demand in end-use industries which mainly include chemicals and energy. In the chemicals industry, it is used mainly to manufacture formaldehyde, acetic acid etc. and in the energy industry, it goes into the manufacturing of methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), methyl methacrylate (MMA) etc. The increasing use of methanol as a fuel in the automotive industry will also drive its demand in the coming years. This report by Expert Market Research entitled “Methanol Market Report and Forecast 2020-2025” provides a comprehensive analysis for anyone who plans to foray into the methanol market.
