The firm avoids participation in the commercial side petrochemicals, neither buying, selling, trading, brokering, nor distributing products and is a trusted and reputable independent voice across the industry.
MMSA has a global view of petrochemical markets, with a unique and deep understanding of China, the growth driver and clearing market for most upstream chemicals. MMSA devotes analysis of global markets proportionately to market size.
MMSA maintains strong ties with all key stakeholders to the industry, including producers, consumers/converters, traders, distributors, process technology and catalyst suppliers, Engineering Procurement and Construction firms, transport companies, industry associations, financial services providers, and academia. Each year, with support from the International Methanol Producers and Consumers Association (IMPCA) MMSA organizes and hosts two significant industry conferences. Each November, an annual conference in Singapore is a significant gathering of companies with strong business ties in Asia and is used as the platform for annual contract negotiations in that region. Every December, the MMSA Frankfurt conference brings together companies and academics with a strong interest in technology and policy innovation.
In addition to providing balanced opinion to its broad customer base, MMSA has provided significant support to fundraising efforts for new facilities, existing assets, mergers, and acquisitions (including valuation), and other bankable studies.

MMSA is able to prepare bespoke studies for clients with unique needs beyond the scope of MMSA multiclient services. These range from support of methanol and methanol derivative project investment (extended price, supply/demand forecasts) to project pre-feasibility support, feasibility studies, and advanced techno-commercial advisory services such as market and technical due diligence support. MMSA has performed hundreds of these studies, which are tailored specifically with client interaction and input.
Increasingly, MMSA has been successful in supporting the development of low carbon methanol projects using an in-house expertise and database unique to the industry.
