The increasing adoption of MTO technology is one of the major factors propelling the market growth. However, factors such as fluctuating methanol prices is hampering the market growth.

MTO is a comparatively new and innovative technology, which is being used to produce propylene and ethylene from methanol. Methanol is primarily produced from coal and natural gas in regions where these raw materials are available in surplus. These raw materials help in producing methanol at a low cost in areas where the reserve of ethanol is limited. The MTO technique fills the propylene and ethylene demand and supply gap from refineries and steam crackers by manufacturing large volumes of propylene and ethylene. Thus, the increasing adoption of the MTO technology will drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.
