Drivers & Restraints-

High Demand from Automotive & Construction Industries to Aid Growth

Heavy fuels, namely, diesel and gasoline are considered to be the major causes of environmental pollution. They often result in global warming and rapid changes in climate. Hence, the fuel industry is inclining towards methanol-infused fuels to lower the severe climatic conditions. Methyl is also used extensively as a transportation fuel owing to its possession of multiple properties. When mixed with gasoline, it reduces the toxic emissions. Apart from that, its high demand from construction and automotive industries would also contribute to the methanol market growth in the coming years. However, the outbreak of the COVID-19pandemic is expected to affect the market negatively as the manufacturers have shut down their plants temporarily.

Segment-

Formaldehyde Segment to Grow Rapidly Fueled by Increasing Demand from Multiple Industries

Based on derivatives, the market is segregated into solvent, MTO/MTP, biodiesel, gasoline blending, DME, MTBE, acetic acid, formaldehyde, and others. Out of these, the acetic acid segment held 5.4%in terms of methanol market share in 2019. The formaldehyde segment is likely to be the largest throughout the forthcoming years owing to their high demand from a wide range of industries, such as textile, automobile, and construction.

 

Regional Analysis-

Rising Production of Green Fuels to Favor Growth in North America

Geographically, in 2019, Asia Pacific procured USD 17.94 billion in terms of revenue. It is anticipated to be the major contributor to the market growth backed by the persistent expansion of the construction and automotive industries. China is a significant consumer and manufacturer of methanol derivatives. North America, on the other hand, is set to exhibit high growth stoked by the rising fuel blending and the increasing production of green fuels in this region.
