Segments of the Market 

The report has divided the methanol market into segments based on feedstock, end-use industry, and region. 

Feedstock: Natural Gas Sub-Segment to be Most Profitable 

The natural gas sub-segment is predicted to generate a revenue of $23,522.9 million during the estimated timeframe. This is mainly due to the several advantages of using methanol as a feedstock such as lower product cost, energy security, and many more. Furthermore, the increasing use of natural gas as a feedstock due to its lower risk of flammability is predicted to foster the growth of the methanol market sub-segment over the forecast period. 

End-Use Industry: Automotive Sub-Segment to be Most Productive 

The automotive sub-segment is expected to garner a revenue of $11,028.7 million throughout the analysis timeframe. This is mainly because methanol is widely used as a motor fuel due to its high octane content that boosts vehicle efficiency. Moreover, the increasing use of methanol in gas turbines to lower harmful nitrous oxide emissions is expected to amplify the growth of the market sub-segment during the estimated period. 

Asia-Pacific Region to Hold the Largest Share of the Market 

The Asia-Pacific region of the methanol market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% during the analysis timeframe. This is mainly due to the increasing demand for methanol in this region by considering it as a low-emission alternative fuel. Furthermore, the growing use of methanol in industrial boilers, power generation, diesel gen-sets, and for various other applications in this region is predicted to drive the regional growth of the market throughout the forecast timeframe.
