Opportunities: Rising demand for methanol in China for thermal applications like industrial boilers, furnaces, and kilns is expected to offer ample growth opportunities for the global methanol market. Moreover, its growing importance in the production of biodiesel and light olefins for manufacturing plastic products is estimated to further bolster the market development during the analysis years.

Restraints: Increasing demand for ethanol, a significant alternative of methanol, and high energy content of gasoline per gallon is the major restraining factor projected to impede the market growth.

Covid-19 Impact on the Market:

The global crisis caused by Covid-19 pandemic led to severe economic slowdowns in almost all countries across the globe. Stringent lockdowns and travel restrictions caused disruptions in supply chains of many businesses and delayed manufacturing processes. Consequently, the construction and automotive sectors also witnesses a downfall, thus hampering the methanol market’s growth rate due to its declined demand. Moreover, cancellation of construction projects due to unavailability of raw materials and shortage of work force also decreased the utilization of methanol in industrial chemical applications. However, rising government initiatives for cleaner use of coal to produce methanol is predicted to revive the market growth.
