ASIACHEM Businesses
9th Methanol & Emerging Derivatives Forum 2018

Background

---- The drivers of MTO & High value downstream

 

In 2017, the price of methanol in China fluctuated at a high level, with the annual average price of CNY2800/t, the highest in nearly 4 years. The increase in industry profits stimulated the operating rate. Annual output was about 45 Mt in 2017, with increase of over 7%. China also imported 8.14Mt methanol. In 2017, the total capacity of 4.1Mt/a new methanol was added. Two sets of large methanol plants put into operation, including Zhongtian Hechuang second line 1.8Mt/a methanol unit and Hualu-Hengsheng 1Mt/a methanol unit.

 

CTO/MTO is still the main driving force for methanol consumption. ASIACHEM’s <China CTO/MTO Annual Report 2018> shows, it is expected that a total capacity of 25Mt/a olefins will be built by 2021. By then, the total methanol demand for MTO projects in China will reach 21Mt/a. In addition, the emerging downstream of methanol, such as chemicals, clean fuels and hydrogen, will drive the development of methanol industry.

 

The 9th Methanol & Emerging Derivatives Forum will be held in Fuzhou on May 24-25, 2018. The upcoming event will explore the methanol and emerging derivatives policy and market opportunities; the emerging downstream of methanol consumption; the opportunity for new methanol projects; MTO/MTP projects & feedstock; emerging methanol derivatives markets and technologies; and methanol storage & transportation as well as environmental issues.
