The increasing use of methanol as a transportation fuel is one of the major factors propelling market growth. However, factors such as the fluctuating methanol prices will hamper the market growth.

Methanol, also known as wood alcohol, has physical and chemical characteristics similar to that of conventional fuels. This makes methanol a potential replacement for conventional transportation fuel such as petrol and diesel. Moreover, methanol has improved safety and low production costs, which will boost its adoption as a transportation fuel. Owing to the increasing methanol use in filling stations and flexible fuel vehicles, various combinations of methanol ranging from M3 to M85 are being used nowadays, which will drive methanol market size.
