DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 21, 2022--

The “Renewable Methanol Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027” report has been added to’s offering.

The global renewable methanol market size reached US$ 3.16 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, the market is set to reach US$ 4.5 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.07% during 2021-2027

Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Renewable methanol (CH3OH) is an organic compound produced from unconventional energy sources and renewable feedstocks. It is derived from sustainable biomass, such as industrial, agricultural, forest, and municipal waste, or synthesized using green hydrogen and carbon dioxide (CO2).


Renewable methanol is widely used in plastics for packaging, glues, adsorbents, diapers, paints, adhesives, solvents, and biodiesel production. Furthermore, it is an excellent industrial solvent and is widely used as a feedstock in the chemical industry to produce formaldehyde, dimethyl ether (DME), and methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE).

In comparison to conventional methanol, renewable methanol is an ultra-low carbon chemical with a high-octane rating that assists in mitigating various environmental concerns. As a result, it finds extensive applications across the chemical, transportation, power generation, and construction industries.

Renewable Methanol Market Trends:

Increasing environmental consciousness among the masses is one of the key factors driving the market growth. Renewable methanol helps in reducing emission levels of particulate matter and greenhouse gases (GHG), such as carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and sulfur dioxide.

Furthermore, rising product utilization as a gasoline additive and substitute due to high octane rating, knocking resistance, and oxygen content is acting as another growth-inducing factor.

Additionally, the introduction of microwave and non-thermal plasma and magnetic induction-based reactors for selective conversion of carbon dioxide to renewable methanol at minimum energy consumption and lower production costs is providing an impetus to market growth.


Moreover, the implementation of various government initiatives and international agreements to reduce pollution and achieve a climate-neutral world is creating a positive outlook for the market.

Other factors, including the increasing demand for formaldehyde production, shifting trends toward sustainable energy sources, and widespread compound utilization as marine fuel, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
