Major findings During the Analysis of Green Hydrogen Industry:

  • Alkaline Water Electrolyser Technology is projected to garner significant market share as it is the most matured green hydrogen technology. This is primarily due to the relatively low cost per kW of installed capacity
  • Green hydrogen is produced majorly from wind sources owing to the rise in the development of onshore and offshore wind farms. Rising awareness regarding the use of clean energy and the desire to mitigate the impacts of global warming has contributed to a significant rise in wind energy’s popularity over the past few decades
  • In terms of application, revenue from the transport segment is highest due to the hydrogen’s rapid refueling time and higher energy density. It is pure enough for fuel cells used in the mobility sector which increases the demand for green hydrogen in transport application
  • Europe held the highest position in the green hydrogen market as major players are present in the country. For instance, key players like Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, S.A., Nel ASA, and Linde, among others, are extremely active in European countries. Hydrogen is essential to Europe’s goals to decarbonize heavy industry, and the laws of the country are trying to encourage investors and enterprises to switch from hydrogen produced from fossil fuels to hydrogen produced from renewable sources
  • The market in APAC will significantly grow in the green hydrogen market during the forecast period. For instance, in the recent budget, the Indian Government is targeting 5 million tonnes (MT) of green hydrogen production by 2030
  • Market participants focus on implementing various strategic programs, such as partnerships, joint ventures, acquisitions, and mergers, on strengthening their market position in the emerging hydrogen market. For instance, Heliogen Inc. and Bloom Energy Corporation have announced the generation of green hydrogen by integrating the companies’ technologies – Heliogen’s concentrated solar energy system and the Bloom Electrolyzer. Moreover, Air Liquide and Siemens Energy formed a joint venture for the European production of large-scale renewable hydrogen electrolyzers
  • North American region will grow exponentially with the highest CAGR in the green hydrogen market owing to the rising demand and production of green hydrogen. For instance, Linde has announced that it will build a 35-megawatt PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) electrolyzer to produce green hydrogen in Niagara Falls, New York, U.S.

What are the Current Trends in the Green Hydrogen Market?

Decarbonization has become a global dependable and a priority for governments, companies, and society at large because it plays a vital role in limiting global warming. Carbon-free hydrogen plays a critical role in decarbonizing various end-use sectors, such as iron ore and steel, methanol, fertilizers, refining, and maritime shipping, emitting significant amounts of CO2. To achieve this, decarbonizing the production of an element like hydrogen has given rise to green hydrogen. Thus, hydrogen has started attracting new momentum among various nations.  Currently 43 countries have set up strategies for driving the hydrogen economy.

Green hydrogen is one of the most promising technologies for meeting the world’s future energy demands. However, the market of green hydrogen is facing challenges owing to the high cost associated with the implementation of green hydrogen in various end-user markets. Thus, to reduce the overall pricing for green hydrogen, constant efforts are being made to decrease the cost of electrolyzers. It has been estimated that by 2050, green hydrogen production costs in some parts of the Middle East, Africa, Russia, China, the US, and Australia will be in the range of USD 1 to USD 1.6/kg.

What is the Future of Green Hydrogen?

It has been estimated that, by 2050, most heavy road transport will run on hydrogen and electricity. As per Cognitive Market Research study it also projected that 35% of trucks will be electric, 55% will run on hydrogen, and 10% will run on bio-methane in Europe. The demand for green hydrogen will keep on rising in the coming years.  Plug Power Inc. has announced to build of a 35-ton-per-day green hydrogen generation plant at the Port of Antwerp-Bruges in the heart of Europe. The company has also signed a 30-year concession agreement to build the plant at the Belgian port, the second largest in Europe. As a result, innovative technology and additional funds will create a game-changing situation for green hydrogen, leading to sustainable development and green industrialization for everybody.
