2022 MMSA International Methanol Conference Returns

The Methanol Industry’s Lone Internationally Focused, Asia-Based Event Returns Live in Singapore:

2022 MMSA IMC: Near Term Peril, Clean, Green Growth

Date: November 1 – 3, 2022
Venue: Regent Hotel, Singapore

MMSA looks forward to gathering methanol players from around the world to meet, collaborate and share business insights

The 24th version of this major methanol event will again gather global players in Singapore. The fate of global methanol markets has been clouded near term. China is grappling with a strict COVID-19 approach, and a war continues in Europe. Additionally, inflation has arrived in developed nations, creating worries about demand destruction. Longer term, methanol markets are being influenced by a transition away from fossil-based energy towards renewable energy. This “greening” of the energy system will create several opportunities for methanol and its derivatives, one of which could be use of lower carbon intensity versions of methanol as a marine fuel. Yet these opportunities come with risks and costs.

Meanwhile, methanol pricing has bucked the trend toward inflation near term. Yet prices will need to rise to support investment in new, “greener” production capacity and “greening” of existing assets, which will be needed longer term. MMSA has designed the event to address the outlook for methanol markets from a broad array of perspectives.

This conference, which allows the world’s major commercial participants to cost-effectively network, meet, and prepare for the following year’s business, has become a “must-attend” event. MMSA has created unique and cost-effective opportunities to present, sponsor, and meet at this conference. MMSA will also hold a limited number of hotel rooms for guests at the award-winning Regent Hotel as well as meeting spaces at neighboring hotels on a first come, first served basis.
