Power-to-gas Market

Power-to-gas Market by technology (Electrolysis and Methanation), Capacity (Less than 100 kW, 100–999kW, 1000 kW and Above), End-User (Commercial, Utilities, and Industrial), and Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific) - Global Forecast to 2024

Report Code: EP 7371 Oct, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

[174 Pages Report] The global power-to-gas market is projected to reach USD 42 million by 2024 from an estimated USD 26 million in 2019, at a CAGR of 10.1% during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the effective utilization of renewable energy resources and integrated management of power and gas network. The increase in capacity of renewable energy together with the need to reduce carbon emissions has led to a rise in the implementation of power-to-gas technology.

Power-to-gas Market

The electrolysis segment is expected to be the largest contributor to the power-to-gas market, by technology, during the forecast period

The power-to-gas market is segmented, by technology, into electrolysis and methanation. The electrolysis segment is projected to hold the largest market share by 2024. This is because of its dynamic operations and the ability to effectively integrate electricity from fluctuating renewable energy sources such as wind and solar.

The 1000 kW and above segment is expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period

The power-to-gas market, by capacity, is segmented into less than 100 kW, 100–999 kW, and 1000 kW and above. 1000 kW and above capacity is highly preferred because of growing commercialization and implementation of several MW size projects of power to gas technologies and demand from utilities and industrial end-users.

The utilities segment is expected to be the fastest-growing market for the power-to-gas market, by end-user, during the forecast period

The power-to-gas market has been categorized, based on end-user, into commercial, utilities, and industrial.  The utilities segment is growing as power and gas utilities are looking to effectively produce hydrogen by integrating intermittent renewable power sources and have the flexibility of power system operations.

Power-to-gas Market

Europe is expected to be the largest market during the forecast period

In this report, the power-to-gas market has been analyzed with respect to three regions, namely, North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Europe is estimated to be the largest market from 2019 to 2024. This is because power-to-gas technology is expected to play a significant role in stabilizing the region’s energy supply and offsetting fluctuating power generation from renewable energy sources. Germany has seen a rising demand for power-to-gas technology, with the growing need for hydrogen from chemical, industrial and fuel cell transportation demand in the country.

Key Market Players

The major players in the power-to-gas market are Hydrogenics (Canada), ITM Power (UK), McPhy Energy (France), Siemens (Germany), MAN Energy Solutions (Germany), Nel Hydrogen (Norway), ThyssenKrupp (Germany), Electrochaea (Germany), Exytron (Germany), and GreenHydrogen (Denmark).

Hydrogenics (Canada) is a key player in this segment. The company actively focuses on inorganic strategies to increase its global market share. For instance, in March 2017, Hydrogenics entered into an agreement with Wind to Gas Südermarsch in Germany to deliver a 2.4 MW PEM power-to-gas system for hydrogen production. This 2.4 MW facility would significantly help reduce emissions using renewable hydrogen.

Another major player in the market is the ITM Power(UK). The company opts for partnerships as its inorganic business strategy for increasing its clientele base globally. For instance, in September 2018 ITM Power in partnership with INOVYN, Storengy, Cadent, and Element Energy deployed a 100+ MW power-to-gas energy storage project “Project Centurion” in Runcorn, Cheshire, UK.
