Global Renewable Methanol Market Set for Strong Growth at 5.5% CAGR by 2031, Fueled by Sustainable Energy Demands

Dublin, Sept. 7, 2023 -- The "Renewable Methanol Market Size, Market Share, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Growth Trends, Key Players, Competitive Strategies and Forecasts - 2023 to 2031" report has been added to's offering.

The global renewable methanol market is poised for substantial growth, with an anticipated Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.5% by 2031.

Renewable methanol, a fuel derived from feedstocks such as municipal waste, industrial waste, biomass, and carbon dioxide, offers numerous benefits, including lower carbon emissions and the ability to improve the octane number of motor fuels when blended.

The increasing demand for energy across various sectors, including power, transportation, and manufacturing, coupled with the depletion of fossil fuel reserves, has driven the shift towards alternative energy sources. Concerns over greenhouse gas emissions and favorable regulatory policies mandating the blending of 10% methanol in gasoline, especially in the United States, Canada, and China, are expected to drive the global renewable methanol market's growth from 2016 to 2031. Additionally, the high octane rating of methanol compared to regular gasoline promotes its consumption.

However, challenges such as the lack of infrastructure for renewable methanol production and feedstock availability in certain regions are expected to hinder market growth during the forecast period.

In 2016, Asia Pacific, particularly China, was the largest market for renewable methanol due to increasing production and regulatory requirements for blending. North America followed as the second-largest market in 2016, driven by favorable regulatory policies and existing infrastructure. Europe is projected to gain significant market share by 2023, primarily due to increased production and supportive regulatory policies, including the European Union's renewable energy directives promoting the blending of renewable methanol in fuels.

Leading players in the renewable methanol market are focusing on backward integration across the value chain to address feedstock challenges.
