MEA Methanol demand stood at 21.52 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 31.75 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 4.05% until 2030. Since Methanol offers a low evaporation rate as well as radiant heat, it is widely adopted across various end-user industries such as chemical and petrochemicals, automotive, construction, paints and coatings, etc. Methanol is a safer fuel as it is biodegradable and eco-friendly, and therefore it is preferred over petrochemical derivatives that contribute to global warming. In recent years, a major shift from coal to methanol units has been observed to meet the ever-increasing commercial capacity, which is significantly contributing to the growth of the MEA Methanol market.

The COVID-19 pandemic created an immediate reduction in demand for fuel due to lockdown restrictions and measures to reduce human interaction and mobility of items. Besides, a temporary halt on construction activities and production facilities affected the MEA Methanol market negatively. However, the demand for Methanol started expanding gradually in late 2020 with unlocking measures. In the coming years, the MEA Methanol market is likely to grow exponentially with the increasing use of biodegradable fuel for manufacturing activities.
