Renewable Methanol Market Size Worth USD 48,382.65 Million by 2032 | CAGR: 53.8%

The global renewable methanol market size is expected to reach USD 48,382.65 Million by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Renewable Methanol Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Feedstock (Renewable Energy, Agricultural Waste, Municipal Solid Waste, Forestry Residues); By Application; By End-Use; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The demand for renewable methanol is increasing due to various factors, including regulations, corporate sustainability, and consumer preferences for environment-friendly products. As businesses strive to adopt greener practices in response to growing awareness of climate change, renewable methanol is becoming a preferred feedstock in chemical production processes.

The urgent need to significantly reduce or eliminate CO2 emissions to mitigate climate change is a primary driver behind the growth of the renewable methanol market. With the global focus on limiting the average temperature rise to no more than 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, industries are seeking alternatives to conventional fossil fuel-based processes. Renewable methanol offers a viable solution by providing a cleaner, more sustainable source of methanol production, thus contributing to global efforts to combat climate change.

The increasing demand for sustainable fuel alternatives is a significant driver for the growth of the renewable methanol market. As concerns over climate change escalate, there's a growing emphasis on reducing carbon emissions across various industries. Renewable methanol presents itself as a viable solution due to its potential to significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional fossil fuel-based methanol. As per the World Economic Forum reports, investments in renewables hitting record highs, reaching $1.3 trillion in 2022, there's a clear signal of global commitment towards transitioning to cleaner energy sources.

However, despite the momentum toward sustainability, green methanol production remains relatively low compared to conventional methanol derived from fossil fuels. Currently, less than 0.2 million tonnes of green methanol are produced annually, while 98 million tonnes of conventional methanol are sourced from fossil fuels. The disparity underscores the need for scaling up green methanol production to meet the rising demand for sustainable fuel alternatives.

Renewable Methanol Market Report Highlights

  • The renewable energy segment dominated the global market in 2023. Renewable energy has gained tremendous popularity in recent decades due to increasing concerns about fossil fuel depletion and the subsequent rise in global temperatures caused by greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
  • The gasoline sector is anticipated to experience a steady increase in growth during the upcoming years. Gasoline, a conventional fuel, is widely used by most conventional internal combustion engines (ICEs) worldwide.
  • The global market is led by Europe, which holds the largest revenue share. The region's renewable methanol industry covers a wide range of aspects, including production, consumption, and market dynamics. Europe is a key market for renewable methanol, as it is driven by growing demand for low-carbon fuels and chemicals.
  • The global key market players include Advent Technologies, BASF SE, Thyssenkrupp Uhde GmbH, Veolia, Södra, WASTEFUEL, Carbon Recycling International, Enerkem, Methanex Corporation, OCI, etc.
