Asia Pacific is spearheading the growth of the global methanol industry. China has emerged as the biggest producer and consumer of methanol globally and accounts for nearly 75% of the demand of Asia Pacific as a whole. This is followed by Japan, South Korea, and India. It is expected that the high methanol demand from China will continue in the years to come, thus leading to an increase in methanol production capacity in the country as well. Increase in the production of formaldehyde, DME, acetic acid, etc., are some of the main drivers that increased the demand for methanol in the region.

The usage of methanol for fuel purposes is also poised to create additional opportunities for the market in the coming years. Methanol is currently being used in transesterification stage of biodiesel manufacturing process. Given the fact that numerous biodiesel projects are under consideration or construction stage, the demand for methanol is likely to increase in this space and compensate for some of the demand lost to MTBE.
