China was the world's largest methanol consumer in 2018. Total consumed 73.5 million of methanol. 

On March 19, 2019, eight Ministries of the Chinese government(Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China; National Development and Reform Commission; Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China; The Ministry of Public Security of the People’s Republic of China; Ministry of Ecology and Environment of the People’s Republic of China; Ministry of Transport of the People’s Republic of China; National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China; State Administration for Market Regulation) jointly issued a document promoting the application of methanol vehicles in China, which will vigorously speed up the construction of methanol stations and the popularization of methanol vehicles.

It is foreseeable that methanol fueling reforming fuel cell vehicles are expected to develop rapidly in China due to their zero dependence on hydrogen fueling stations.
