Methanol Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends,
Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018-2026
Methanol is a liquid which is manufactured mostly through oxidization of
methane or through synthesis of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. Methanol is
termed as wood alcohol since it depicts properties similar to conventional fuels.
Methanol is chiefly utilized as a fuel in vehicles as well as an antifreeze solution
in automobiles. It is also used as a feedstock for manufacturing various products
such as formaldehyde, acetic acid, MTBE, DME, and others. It is used widely in
numerous other industrial applications. It is a volatile, colorless, toxic, and
flammable liquid. Globally, methanol is produced at around 90 methanol plants.
