The size and share of the Europe Methanol Market are expected to progress at a CAGR of 4% reaching a volume of 9 million tonnes by 2025. The growth is moderate as the natural gas prices are higher in this area.

Recent Developments



  • In August 2020, BASF SE increased its overall R&D capabilities with the purchase of a polyamide business that is a part of Solvay AG. This broadened their existing portfolio.

  • Solvents signed a contract with HCS group completing the purchase of the HC fluid business acquiring all the assets and employees.

  • Ferry Stena Germanica was the first ship to run on methanol which is used a marine fuel, this signified a major milestone in the shift towards a sustainable future and decarbonization process.

Drivers and Restraints of Europe Methanol market:

Methanol acts as an alternative and provides a solution to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. This is one of the features which contributed to the growing demand for methanol in Europe in the past few years. To add to this, methanol is also biodegradable and hence is in compliance with the environmental regulations imposed by the regulatory bodies. In European regions, methanol has widespread implications in healthcare industries as European countries have increased their investments in the pharmaceutical sector and healthcare activities, the methanol market has been growing in this region. It is also seen as an alternative or replacement for products such as gasoline, crude oil, and diesel fuel.

Methanol is not the cheapest chemical alternative available in the European region as most of it is imported. The natural gas price in the European region is very high which makes the methanol market non-competitive. Most of the nations in the EU are dependent on the Asia Pacific region for their methanol needs and this dependency hinders the growth opportunities for the local industries.

Europe methanol market has been segmented into the following categories:

By Feedstock

  • Natural Gas
  • Coal

By Derivative

  • Formaldehyde
  • Gasoline
  • MTBE
  • MMA

By Sub-derivative

  • UF/PF Resins
  • Olefins

By End-Use Industry

  • Construction
  • Automotive
  • Electronics
  • Healthcare

Methanol is also being used as an alternate fuel in various power plants, for example, in a fluidized bed boiler power plants, methanol can be used as a fuel for combustion. The demand for alternate fuel is very high in European regions and thus this sector is growing rapidly.

Methanol is also widely used in the healthcare sector in European countries. Germany for example has been spending a lot in the healthcare sector and was able to contain the COVID-19 pandemic in the European region better than any other country. Many countries throughout the world are following Germany’s model and have increased their investments in the healthcare sector. This has caused the methanol market to grow significantly.

There are several major players that are asserting their dominance in the Methanol Market in recent years, some of the big names in Europe are:

  1. BASF SE

  2. Celanese Corporation

  3. Solventis

  4. Methanex Corporation

  5. Croda International

Impact of COVID-19 on the European Methanol Market:

COVID-19 has exposed severe challenges for the methanol market by impacting end-user applications. Several nations in Europe are affected because of this pandemic as it was the initial hotspot for the virus. The Methanol market, however, saw subdued growth in this period owing to the increased sanitation activities which became mandatory in almost all working places but with absolutely no demand from the natural gas and oil industry, the methanol market suffered from it.

In addition to this, increased awareness of personal hygiene and self-care products boosted the demand during this period. More investments are made towards healthcare industries and the pharmaceutical sector. Post the pandemic, the market is expected to grow at a similar rate if not more at a CAGR of 3-4%.
