The growth driving prospects for the methanol market size will help the market reach an excellent market revenue by the end of the forecast period in 2030. Methanol, as a part ingredient is a clean-burning marine fuel that is known to be cost-effectively and helps to meet the shipping industry’s increasingly stringent emissions and regulations that are put forward during the forecast period that will be ending in 2030. Further, methanol is emerging as a cost-effective alternative in the form of a marine fuel when it comes to fuel storage followed by the bunkering infrastructure costs. As it is available in liquid form, only minor modifications are required to be employed in the current bunkering infrastructure for handling methanol. Similarly, the cost of converting the fuel vessels to function on methanol is relatively low as compared to the conversions and functioning of alternate fuels. Owing to this market fact, the use and demand of the methanol market share as a marine fuel are witnessing global growth. It has been used in many global projects and commercial activities that are propelling around the world.
The market production of methanol is done using any carbon-based source is a capital-intensive process. The market players need to identify the need to secure raw materials for economical and uninterrupted supply for a good time. Once, there is a considerable availability of R&D and FEED of the project which is ensured, the required time frame followed by capital investments are calculated on a per-project basis. The construction plants also require a higher and huge investment degree. The post phases of the market, such as maintenance followed by the installation process es of technology, and others, also require the availability of a considerable amount of capital.
