The global hydrogen generation market is projected to reach USD 152.09 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2016 to 2021. Factors responsible for the growth of the market include strict regulatory norms to desulfurize petroleum products and cleaner fuel option as hydrogen is produced by electrolysis of water using renewable energies such as wind, solar, and water. Asia-Pacific drives the market as demand for hydrogen mainly comes from petroleum refineries and for ammonia production in the region. The report, on the basis of generation & delivery mode, analyzes captive and merchant hydrogen generation, of which hydrogen generation by captive production held the largest share (value) in 2015. North America dominated the merchant hydrogen production segment in 2015, and is expected to continue to lead the market till 2021. The demand for merchant hydrogen is more in the region due to high demand growth of on-site generation plants and refueling stations (for fuel cell electric vehicles) in the U.S. and Canada.

The global hydrogen generation market has been further segmented on the basis of generation & delivery mode, application, technology, and region. The years considered for the study are as mentioned below:

  • Base Year – 2015
  • Estimated Year – 2016
  • Projected Year – 2021
  • Forecast Period – 2016 to 2021

For company profiles in the report, 2015 has been considered as the base year. However, where information is unavailable for base year, the previous year has been considered.

Research Methodology:

Extensive secondary sources; directories; and databases such as IEEE publications, press releases, investment reports, hydrogen & fuel cell reports, industry white papers, and other publicly available sources have been used to identify and collect information for this technical, market-oriented, and commercial study of the global hydrogen generation market. Below is the explained research methodology:

  • Analysis of the regional split of hydrogen production according to hydrogen applications and mode of delivery

Hydrogen Generation Market

Market Ecosystem:

The value chain of the hydrogen generation market starts from its feedstock or primary energy sources. Hydrogen can be produced from these feedstock sources, which are further utilized by various hydrogen generation and production companies. Organizations that have hydrogen generation technologies can either utilize the produced hydrogen for further processes or distribute it to other market players. The hydrogen generated is used in refineries, fuel cell, for the production of ammonia and methanol, metal production and fabrication, food processing, and electronics.

The global hydrogen generation market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period to reach USD 152.09 Billion by 2021. This growth is attributed to high demand for hydrogen as a cleaner fuel, government regulations for desulfurization of petroleum products, and decreasing crude oil quality. Hydrogen has potential applications in chemical processing, petroleum recovery and refining, metal production and fabrication, aerospace, and fuel cells.

The report segments the hydrogen generation market on the basis of technology, generation & delivery mode, application, and region. The demand for hydrogen is the largest in petroleum refinery and ammonia production. During petroleum refining, hydrogen is used for desulfurization, and thus, the requirement for hydrogen in refineries depends on the sulfur level present in petroleum products. Governments are regulating sulfur content in final petroleum products, hence; the demand for hydrogen generation is increasing.

On the basis of generation & delivery mode, hydrogen generation has been divided into captive and merchant hydrogen generation. Captive production accounts for those consumers who possess their own production set ups and have an in-house infrastructure. The hydrogen produced is consumed by these manufacturers to produce the final end-user products. Captive production is expected to dominate the market till 2021. However, merchant production is expected to witness an increase in market share because of the effective technologies used by the sole manufacturers in the market; most common technologies used worldwide include electrolysis (water) and reformation (methane). North America is the largest market for merchant hydrogen production.

Asia-Pacific was the leading market for hydrogen generation in 2015 with increasing end-user applications of hydrogen in manufacturing ammonia, and increasing usage in refining crude oil.

Hydrogen Generation Market

The key concern of the hydrogen generation industry is regarding its high cost, as compared to other fuels, and lack of proper distribution & transportation infrastructure. Some of the leading players in the hydrogen generation market include Linde AG (Germany), Air Liquide SA (France), Air Products & Chemicals Inc. (U.S.), Praxair Inc. (U.S.), Airgas Inc. (U.S.), and Hydrogenics Corp. (Canada) among others. Contracts & agreements was the most commonly used strategy by top players in the market, constituting more than one-third of the total developments share. It was followed by expansions, mergers & acquisitions, and new product launches.

1. Methodology Adopted by MnM:

MnM carried out this study through a combination of extensive secondary research backed by multiple primary interviews with various industry leaders across the value chain globally. MnM analyzed both capital and operating costs for Steam Methane Reforming, Partial Oxidation, Coal gasification and Electrolysis of water methods. MnM provided the cost involved in each method by taking three different plant size into consideration which helped into identification of the cheaper method for production of hydrogen. In total, MnM conducted 7 primary discussions to know the industry experts view on the cost of each method.

2. Actual Solution Provided:

Through this granular study, MnM analyzed the cost of each method and the various factors of capital and operating costs and derived to an outcome that Steam Methane Reforming is the cheapest method of producing hydrogen compared to all method followed by partial oxidation and coal gasification.

Value Delivered:

MnM’s client was able to identify the cheapest method of producing hydrogen.
