Methanol Production Cost Analysis Report : Capital Investment, Manufacturing Process, Raw Materials, Operating Cost, Industry Trends and Revenue Statistics 2023-2028

Report Overview:

Methanol (CH3OH), also known as wood or methyl alcohol, is a light, colorless, inflammable, and volatile liquid alcohol with a distinctive odor. It is produced by combining hydrogen and carbon monoxide gas in the presence of a catalyst. It has a lower rate of evaporation and is also miscible in different solvents like water, alcohol, ether and ketones. Owing to these properties, methanol is widely utilized to manufacture biodiesel and as a general solvent to produce resins, pharmaceuticals, and perfumes. 

The market is primarily driven by the rising product adoption in the automotive industry. Methanol is widely used as a transportation fuel and antifreeze agent for automobile radiators. In addition, with the shifting consumer inclination toward sustainable fuels, methanol is employed to manufacture Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) and Dimethyl ether (DME), which are safer alternatives to traditional gasoline. Besides this, the market is also propelled by the increasing utilization of methanol to produce ethylene glycol, vinyl chloride monomer, and vinyl acetate monomer that find application in paints and coatings, adhesives, and other end-use industries. Moreover, with the growing environmental concerns, there has been an increase in the demand for methanol as a cleaner substitute for conventional fuels since methanol biodegrades are eco-friendly in nature. Furthermore, the implementation of favorable government initiatives to promote the usage of methanol as a fuel in vehicles and cooking is also creating a positive market outlook across the globe.
