Asia Methanol Market- Forecast (2018-2023)

Posted by Venkatesh on September 11th, 2018

According to the new market research report by IndustryARC, “Asia Methanol Market: By Application (Formaldehyde, Acetic Acid, MTBE, DME, MTO, Glasoline Blending & Combustion and Others) & By Country (China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Malaysia & Others) - (2018-2023)”, the market is driven by the growing methanol demand from formaldehyde derivatives.

China continues to lead the Asia Methanol Market share and growth during 2018-2023.

China has the highest production capacity in Asia and it is estimated that only China has a significant growth in its production capacities when compared to other countries in Asia. New investments, domestic demand for methanol, cheap coal prices for methanol production and others are the driving factors for the increase in annual production capacities. Also, China was the major country in the consumption of methanol in 2017 and is estimated to be the major country for the same during the forecast period 2018-2023. The recent and upcoming methanol projects in China would help in decreasing imports in future to China. India, which is one of the fastest growing market in the consumption of methanol for applications such as formaldehyde and acetic acid, would grow at a CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period.

Selected / Sample Analysis done in the full Report:

Methanol which is the basic chemical for many applications in daily use, can be produced from many feed stocks.
In Asia, China’s major feedstock for methanol production is coal, whereas rest of Asia uses natural gas.
The methanol produced is used for chemical derivatives such as formaldehyde, acetic acid, MTBE, MTO and others.
Among these, a high demand exists for formaldehyde, acetic acid and MTO and gasoline.
These are used to produce products such as acetate esters, gasoline additives, olefins, resins and many more.
The products derived from methanol are used in several industries such as automotive, paints & coatings, packaging, solvents, electronics and others.
