Market Insights:

Renewable methanol refers to a type of fuel produced from feedstock, such as municipal waste, industrial waste, biomass, and carbon dioxide. Renewable methanol finds application as fuel in transportation or as feedstock in chemicals. Renewable methanol produces low carbon emissions and can be blended with motor fuels to improve their octane numbers.

Growing energy demand from various sources, such as power, transportation, and manufacturing, and depleting fossil fuel reserves have driven the need to switch to alternative energy sources.

Moreover, growing concerns over emissions of greenhouse gases and favorable regulatory policies to the mandatory blending of 10% methanol in gasoline used in automobiles, especially in the U.S., Canada, and China, to promote the usage of renewable methanol, are expected to fuel the growth of the global renewable methanol market over the forecast period. Further, methanol’s properties, such as its high octane number as compared to normal gasoline, are another factor promoting the consumption of renewable methanol.

However, factors such as the lack of infrastructure for renewable methanol production and feedstock availability are expected to remain challenges in many regions, which in turn is expected to hamper the growth of the renewable methanol market during the forecast period (2016–2023).

Asia Pacific, especially China, is anticipated to be the largest market for renewable methanol in 2016, owing to increasing production in the region coupled with regulatory policies for mandatory blending in motor fuels. Followed by it, North America is expected to be the second-largest market for renewable methanol in 2016 due to

Favorable regulatory policies coupled with the availability of infrastructure in the region. Europe is projected to gain a significant revenue share in the global renewable methane market by 2023, owing to increasing production of renewable methanol and favorable regulatory policies such as the European Union’s renewable energy directives, which make the use of renewable methanol blending in fuels mandatory.

The leading players identified across the value chain of the renewable methanol market are focusing on backward integration across the value chain in order to eliminate the challenges of feedstock availability.
