North America Methanol Market Forecast 2018-2026

North America Methanol Market Forecast 2018-2026

The North America methanol market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 10.58% over the forecast period of 2018-2026. The shale gas boom in the region has increased the demand for methanol in the North American region.


Vendors situated in North America are adopting strategies like plant relocation, capacity restarts, and Greenfield projects to expand the methanol market in countries like the US and Canada. The demand for methanol derivatives such as formaldehyde is primarily stemming from the automotive, construction, and furniture industries in these countries. However, factors like fluctuating methanol prices and government regulations and policies are challenging the market growth.


Major methanol producing companies are Methanex Corporation, Zagros Petrochemical Company (Zpc), Qatar Fuel Additives Company Limited, Basf Ag, Valero Marketing And Supply Company, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation, Celanese Corporation, and Mitsubishi Chemicals.
