Argus Methanol Dynamics: China Dominance and US Capacity Expansion

image description 

An Argus Consulting Services multi-client study

An Argus study on the global methanol market 

This comprehensive study provides analysis of the global methanol market, specifically in China — the world’s largest methanol market — and the fast-moving US industry.

There has been a wave of new methanol plants spurred by a surplus of natural gas, which may lead to a glut of methanol in the US by 2018. Simultaneously, China’s demand for methanol is on the rise, which will likely make it a greater target for US exports.

This study provides an extensive background of the factors that have led to today’s resurgence as well as a forward view of the future methanol industry, including a long-term price forecast of key markets, global supply and demand outlook, and a production cash cost comparison of all methanol producers.

This publication enables investors and market participants to capture new opportunities in this evolving sector.
