Coal: The largest feedstock of methanol
The global production of methanol is 40 million tons per year, most of which is produced from natural gas and oil. However, high prices and limited reserves of natural gases in certain geographical areas such as China and Africa have stimulated interest in unconventional feedstock for the production of methanol. Thus, coal comes across as a sustainable alternative raw material for large scale methanol production owing to its abundance, low cost and efficient coal gasification technology.
MTO/MTP: The fastest-growing derivative of methanol
MTO/MTP is the fastest-growing derivative segment in the methanol market. Methanol-to-olefins and methanol-to-propylene (MTO/MTP) applications are gaining momentum and are expected to become the largest derivative of methanol, in terms of both, value and volume, by 2021. Ethylene and propylene are the major feedstocks of polyethylene and polypropylene plastics, respectively, which are in huge demand. The demand of these olefins is the major driver for the massive growth of the methanol market in MTO/MTP derivative.
