Renewable Methanol Market by Feedstock (Agricultural Waste, Forestry Residues, Municipal Solid Waste, Co2 Emissions, and Others), Application (Formaldehyde, Dimethyl Ether & Methyl Tert-Butyl Ether (MTBE), Gasoline, Solvents, and Others), and End-User Industry (Chemicals, Transportation, Power Generation, and Others): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020–2027.
The global renewable methanol market was valued at $3.3 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $5.3 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 5.8%. Renewable methanol is a second-generation methanol derived from renewable energy sources, mainly from biomass and industrial wastage. Stringent environmental regulations to reduce the impact of carbon dioxide fuels the demand for renewable methanol in the transportation and industrial sectors.
Furthermore, increasing use of high-octane fuel ethers such as Methyl-tert-butyl-ether (MTBE) in the production of biodiesel are likely to witness growth. This factor is also increasing use of renewable methanol. Moreover, growth in demand for production of formaldehyde from methanol is expected to drive the renewable methanol market with major applications in paints & coatings and construction. However, lack of infrastructural setups is expected to hinder the market growth. On the contrary, conversion of agricultural and industrial wastages into renewable methanol is expected to create potential growth opportunities for the market in the coming years.
The global renewable methanol market is segmented on the basis of feedstock, application, end-user industry, and region. Based on feedstock, the market is segmented into agricultural waste, forestry residues, municipal solid waste, Co2 emissions, and others. On the basis of application, the market is fragmented into formaldehyde, dimethyl ether (DME, also known as methoxymethane) and methyl tert-Butyl Ether (MTBE), gasoline, solvents, and others. Based on end-user industry the market is bifurcated into chemicals, transportation, power generation, and others. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and LAMEA.
The top market players analyzed in the global renewable methanol market include Advanced Chemical Technologies, BASF SE, Carbon Recycling International (CRI), Enerkem, Fraunhofer, Innogy, Nordic Green, OCI N.V., Serenergy A/S, and Sodra.
