APAC accounted for the largest share of the Methanol Market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the expansion plans of the automotive industry in developing nations of India and China on account of the rising demand for vehicles. Additionally, the new rollout of policies by the Indian government for commercializing the use of coal-based Methanol in heavy commercial vehicles such as trucks and buses instead of diesel can bode favorably for the market. Development of industrial parks in the states of Odisha, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Telangana for production of methanol will be lucrative for the industry over the forecast period. 

North America is another prominent market for methanol due to its increasing use in water treatment facilities in the dentrification process as it helps in reducing the volume of hazardous effluents discharged. According to the Methanol Institute around 200 water treatment facilities in the US use Methanol in the dentrification process.

The Europe Methanol Market is set for a massive growth spurt owing to the extraction of natural gas. Heavy investments in waste-to-methanol projects to curb emission levels can augur favorably for the market. For instance, the Netherlands had infused USD 246 million for conversion of 360,000 tons of waste to 270 million liters of green methanol.
