Global production capacity of methanol 2018-2030

The global production capacity of methanol is expected to double in the eleven years from 2019 to 2030, from approximately 148 million metric tons in 2019, to around 311 million metric tons by 2030. This growth is attributable to approximately 136 planned and announced methanol plants, mainly located in the Former Soviet Union and Asia, that are expected to come online between 2019 and 2030.

In 2018, the United States produced around 5.2 million metric tons of methanol.
