China Methanol Review and Near-term Outlook

Despite demand emerging from the methanol-to-olefins sector, the Chinese methanol market generally stayed bearish for the entire year. What caused the underperformance in 2015 and are we expecting to see changes in the market in the coming year?    

ICIS recently produced a free whitepaper reviewing prices, market developments, as well as supply and demand for the Chinese methanol market.

All data in the whitepaper was taken from the ICIS China Methanol Annual Study.
