Global Methanol Market 2016-2021: Growing Petrochemicals Demand & Development of New Industrial Sectors is Driving Growth - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Methanol Market 2016-2021" report to their offering.

The global methanol market has been estimated at USD 31.02 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 51.6 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 10.70% during the forecast period, 2016 to 2021.

The methanol industry has experienced an explosive growth primarily in China and the United States in recent years owing to significant developments in shale gas, which has contributed in lowering the natural gas prices. Various new markets and applications are on the rise for methanol due to the production of light olefins from methanol, methanol to gasoline conversion, and the increasing use of methanol as a fuel. Growing petrochemicals demand, and the development of new industrial sectors are expected to provide immense opportunities for the growth of the methanol industry, globally.

However, the market faces certain drawbacks, such as the use of ethanol fuel or bio ethanol, which limits the consumption of methanol, and a fluctuation in crude oil prices that would affect the affordability of methanol derivatives. These factors may act as a roadblock to the growth of the market.
