Methanol Industry in South America – Forecast, Size, Growth, Opportunities, and Trends 2017-2021

Methanol Industry in South America – Forecast, Size, Growth, Opportunities, and Trends 2017-2021

Methanol industry in South America has been growing at a stable rate and is dominated by Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. Brazil accounts for over 55% of the methanol demand in the region, while Mexico follows in second place, accounting for nearly 30% of the South American methanol demand in 2016. Argentina accounts for almost 20% of the South American methanol demand. While methanol production witnessed negative growth from 2010 onwards, but production has stabilized somewhat since then. Formaldehyde is the leading downstream derivative segment for methanol demand in South America in 2016, followed by MTBE and acetic acid.

In Southern American, the rapid development of chemical, agricultural, construction and automobile industries, along with the increased usage of the chemical in various end-use segments including alternative fuels, acetic acid, pharmaceuticals, and fuel cells among others is encouraging the growth of the methanol industry in the region.
