The global hydrogen generation market size is projected to hit around US$ 120 Bn by 2027 and growing at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Hydrogen can be produced with a wide range of processes, using diverse domestic resources, including fossil fuels such as natural gas and coal, nuclear energy, and other renewable sources such as biomass, wind, solar, geothermal and hydro-power. Hydrogen release from organic materials such as coal and biomass by thermochemical processes uses heat and chemical reactions The use of electrolysis or solar energy can be used to convert water (H2O) into hydrogen (h2) and oxygen (o2). Hydrogen can be produced by biological processes from microorganisms such as bacteria and algae.

Market Insights

The major factor boosting the growth of hydrogen generation market is due to rising adoption of cleaner fuels. Other factors responsible for growth of market during forecast period are the decrease in crude quality and the growth and development of the transport sector. To avoid problems with desulfurization, strict regulations are implemented at the time of transportation is likely to fuel the growth of global hydrogen generation market. Distillate demand and hydrogen cell production are projected to stimulate global market growth in near future. However, decreased quality of crude hydrogen has increased the importance of hydrogen for processing purposes. Hydrogen is extremely flammable in nature and therefore requires a high level of safety during transport and the lack of appropriate transport networks leads to increased transport costs.
