Europe held the Largest Share of the Green Hydrogen Market in 2021

According to Custom Market Insights (CMI), The Global Green Hydrogen Market size was estimated at USD 1.8 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach around USD 90 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of roughly 55% between 2022 and 2030. Our research report offers a 360-degree view of the Green Hydrogen market’s drivers and restraints, coupled with their impact on demand during the projection period. Also, the report examines global opportunities and competitive analysis for the Green Hydrogen market.

Green Hydrogen Market: Overview

Green hydrogen is produced exclusively from sustainable resources. Grey hydrogen, which makes up 95% of the market and is produced by steam-forming natural gas, has substantially less CO2 than green hydrogen.

Using green hydrogen as a bridge, the green electricity or power can be transformed into transportation fuel or used as a feedstock in industrial applications. For example, market participants will be able to incorporate wind energy into the fuel tank of a container ship thanks to green hydrogen and its derivative fuels, such as green ammonia. The decarbonization capability of renewable energy sources could thus be significantly increased by hydrogen.

Growth Factors

The demand for green hydrogen has increased significantly in recent years due to its capacity to reduce carbon emissions. It also aids in meeting the growing needs of the world. Its use is anticipated to increase because it is a long-term energy source. As more people become aware of the advantages of using hydrogen as an energy carrier, the global market for green hydrogen is anticipated to grow. Additionally, the business is driven by a rise in environmental concerns, emphasizing the necessity of producing clean energy to cut emissions.

Additionally, as the use of nuclear and green hydrogen fuels rises, the green hydrogen industry is expanding. However, the primary factors restricting the expansion of the hydrogen industry are the initial investment necessary to build up the infrastructure and the prohibitive maintenance expenses.

Green Hydrogen Market (By Application)

Segmental Overview

The market for Green Hydrogen is segmented into technology, application, and distribution channel. Based on technology, Alkaline electrolyzers accounted for the most significant revenue share of over 60% in 2021 since they are the conventional electrolyzer technology used in green hydrogen projects. The alkaline electrolyzer has a more extended operating period than PEM electrolyzers and uses sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide as its electrolyte. In contrast to PEM electrolyzers, which operate at temperatures between 70 and 90 degrees Celsius, alkaline electrolyzers have lower power and current densities and a more comprehensive operating temperature range of 100 to 105 degrees Celsius. Alkaline electrolyzes are also anticipated to rise in popularity since they are more readily available and less expensive than PEM electrolyzers.

In terms of revenue, the pipeline sector held around 60% of the global market for green hydrogen in 2021. Transporting green hydrogen is possible in various ways, including as a gas in high-pressure containers, a liquid in thermally insulated containers, a processed form such as methanol or ammonia, or a chemical carrier medium.

Regional Overview

Due to large expenditures made by European economies in the pursuit of an energy transition toward a clean hydrogen-based economy over the ensuing years, Europe accounted for a sizable revenue share in 2021. For instance, the U.K. government revealed a USD 14.8 billion investment plan in August 2019 for a project that is anticipated to utilize 4 GW of offshore wind to produce green hydrogen by 2030.

Competitive Landscape

In the market, there is a great rivalry to lower manufacturing costs, create innovative process technology, expand, and promote the consumption of green hydrogen in end-use sectors. Therefore, the leading market players seek to enhance their market shares by applying various tactics in response to such changes in the industry. 

  • 2022: According to an estimate by Ashok Leyland Ltd, commercially viable hydrogen-powered trucks and buses will become a self-sufficient green option within the next five years. The decision will lower the tax on green hydrogen, which could assist in eliminating import content. In addition, the availability of green hydrogen along long-haul corridors may benefit producers of hydrogen-powered vehicles.
  • 2022: The most significant global PE firm, KKR, has disclosed plans to invest USD 450 million in Hero Future Energies. The investment will help HFE in its attempts to increase its capacity and capabilities for renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, and green hydrogen.
