Methanol is one of the largely produced chemicals in bulk by making use of feedstock such as natural gas and coal. Approximately 200,000 kilo tons of methanol is being consumed every day for the production of other chemicals or as transportation fuels. The global methanol industry apart from large number of producers constitutes of thousands of technology innovators, distributors, service providers, and downstream manufacturers.
Rising formaldehyde manufacturing is primarily driving the global methanol demand. Methanol is a key chemical in the production of formaldehyde which is further modified to from glues, resins, and plastics. It is also used largely in the production of acetic acid which is used in the manufacturing of PET products and polyester fibers. Methanol is among one of the largest industrial chemicals that is an essential building block for other chemical compounds.
One of the fastest growing end-use of methanol in the current scenario includes methanol to olefins (MTO). Ethylene and propylene are olefins with massive demand in the plastic growth. MTO growth opportunities have majorly appeared in China and are typically produced by the steam cracking of ethane and naphtha.
Methanol market is crucially more complex with some of its derivative affordability highly dependent on fluctuations in the prices of crude oil. The global methanol industry is anticipated to witness moderate growth rates during the forecast period. This is due to maturity in direct gasoline blending and moderating growth rates of MTO projects, especially arising from the Northeast Asia.
The end-use applications of methanol are further serving applications in direct sectors such as packaging, textiles, construction, coatings, furniture, paints, and few others. The overall market demand of methanol is considerably complex and is impacted by several factors such as fuel consumption, fuel prices, biofuel mandates, environmental policies, plastic consumption, chemical demand, and consumer housing/construction markets.
Asia Pacific is the dominant regional market for methanol followed by North America and Europe respectively. Northeast Asia is is the major region for the production of methanol. While the production stagnated in most of the regions since the turn of the century, it gained immense significance in Northeast Asia due to high demand from China.
Regions such as Middle East are low cost regions with competitive production, where it is basically a swing supplier to North America and Europe. The global ethanol pricing originates is China and on basis of same benchmarking the prices are set by the Middle East.
Global methanol market constitutes of large number of multinational and domestic companies and is highly fragmented. Some of the major industry players for methanol include Methanex Corporation, Methanol Production Company, Eastman Chemical Company, BASF SE, SABIC, and Petronas.
