The report by Astute Analytica gives an overview of the market segmentation for hydrogen by technology, application, delivery mode, and region. Several market players have been profiled in the report with the purpose of providing an understanding of operations across the Global Hydrogen Market.
Hydrogen is the lightest element that has intrinsic properties like tasteless, odorless, colorless. As a solution to climate change, hydrogen is attracting a lot of attention and investment. There is an extensive research and development trend towards improving hydrogen production and technologies with lower-cost solutions. Companies like Air Liquide International S.A and Linde plc are investing heavily in the research and development of the hydrogen market.
An efficient delivery network and infrastructure of hydrogen supply and storage mean that hydrogen is delivered from where it is produced to the point of end-use. The report provides an insight into the hydrogen industry by covering analysis on different sources of hydrogen production and their respective costs and emission of greenhouse gas. Green hydrogen is the cleanest type of hydrogen produced but it is 2 to 3 times more expensive than any other alternatives. Among all the types of thermal process and electrolytic processes used for the production of hydrogen, coal gasification is the cheapest source with a cost of US$ 2.08 per ton, but Steam Methane Reforming holds the highest market share and generated a revenue of US$ 88,135.1 million in the year 2020. PEM is the most emerging process and growing at a CAGR of 9.5% but it is the most expensive with a cost ranging more than US$ 7 per ton.
The report includes a production and consumption cost comparison of hydrogen for different countries across the globe. Among these, China is the leading producer and consumer of hydrogen in the year 2019. With the highest projected CAGR of 7.9%, China is expected to hold this dominance throughout the forecast period and is estimated to produce around 37.8 million tons of hydrogen in the year 2027 as compared to 22.2 million tons produced in the year 2019. With only 0.225 million tons produced in the year 2019, Norway is the smallest producer but growing at a higher CAGR as compared to many big countries.
The report includes a detailed analysis of the market and explains various factors like drivers and opportunities to better understand how companies can capture large market share. Solar and wind energy can run Electrolyzer that converts water into clean hydrogen. The high availability and lower cost of these sources of energy drive the demand for cleaner hydrogen. This makes electrolysis the most promising hydrogen production method with a CAGR of 9.3%. Hydrogen-powered fuel cells are being used in the automotive industry due to their high efficiency and being a zero-emission source of energy for electrical vehicles.
An overview of different ways of storing hydrogen is also covered in the report. Hydrogen can be stored by compressing it using high pressure, converting it into liquid form, using LOHC that stores hydrogen through a chemical reaction, or using Metal-Organic Frameworks. The cost associated with these ways of storage ranges from US$ 0.23 to $4.57 per kg depending on volume and cycling time. Liquid hydrogen is the most expensive way of storing hydrogen with the cost of US$ 4.57 per kg and a cycling time of days or weeks, but it is expected to have lower costs in the near future.
A vast comparison of current and future demand is also included in the report with the purpose of showing the readers the potential in the hydrogen market and the opportunities that lie within the market. The demand for Hydrogen is likely to rise more than 100 million tons by 2050 as compared to the 2020 levels. The analysis of the future demand for hydrogen in different industries shows that by 2070, transport will have the highest demand of more than 150 million tons.
