In terms of application, biodiesel is expected to be one of the fastest-growing segments in this market due to its growing demand from various end-use industries across different regions.

Global Potassium Methanolate Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A white solid, potassium methoxide is a strong alkali and a good Lewis base. It is soluble in organic solvents. Potassium methoxide is used as a reagent in organic synthesis and as a catalyst for various reactions.

Solid Potassium Methanolate:

Potassium methanolate is a potassium salt of methanol. It is usually white in color and has a crystalline structure. It has strong alkaline nature which can be used to make many chemicals that are used for cleaning, producing energy, etc. The most important application of potassium methanolate is as an additive in gasoline because it helps to clean the air during combustion process and also reduces soot formation resulting in less fuel consumption and higher efficiency of engines.

Liquid Potassium Methanolate:

Potassium methanolate is a potassium salt of methanolic acid. It is usually found in nature as a by-product of wood combustion. Potassium methanolate can also be manufactured from calcium methanearsonate and sodium methanearsonate.

Application Insights:

The demand for potassium methanolate is expected to be high in agriculture application owing to the increasing use of fertilizers. The product is used as a fertilizer and pesticides, which are majorly used in liquid form. However, solid forms of potassium methanolate are also utilized in small scale farming activities due to its low cost and easy availability.

Biodiesel production is one of the highest growing segments across various regions due to rising awareness regarding environment protection along with improving health conditions among consumers. Potassium methanolate acts as an anti-oxidant during biodiesel production process, which results into increased yield over other variants such as fatty acid methyl esters (FAME). This factor along with reduced emissions from biodiesel fuel combustion compared to diesel fuel makes it highly preferred for agricultural application over others.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest market for potassium methanolate, accounting for a share of more than 45.0% in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand from various end-use industries such as pharmaceutical, food & beverage and automotive. In addition, rising awareness regarding environment protection and sustainable development is anticipated to propel industry expansion over the coming years.

The presence of major automobile manufacturers including Toyota Motor Corporation; Honda Motor Co., Ltd.; Nissan Motors Ltd.; Mazda Motor Corp.; Mitsubishi Motors Corp; Isuzu Motors Ltd; SuzukiMotorCorp; Dongfeng Motor Corporation Limited in Asia Pacific has increased the consumption of diesel engines which are highly prone to corrosion caused by condensation on wet roads, leading to environmental pollution in recent times.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as textiles, pulp and paper, and leather due to its excellent performance as a wetting agent and detergent.
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of potassium methoxide among consumers for various applications such as household cleaning, textile processing, food processing, etc.
  • Growing investments by key players in research and development to develop new products with better performance characteristics.
  • Expansion of production capacities by key manufacturers to cater to the increasing demand from global markets.
