Stringent emission regulations for clean fuel adoption such as hydrogen over fossil fuels is prospective to boost demand. Increasing hydrogen gas applications across as oil & gas, refinery, and chemical are anticipated to positively influence industry growth. Global hydrogen consumption in refineries is over 12 billion standard cubic feet a day. This is forecast to drive hydrogen generator market growth during the forecast period.

Abundant obtainability of low cost natural gas feedstock accompanied with high purity hydrogen is forecast to be key factor propelling industry growth. Also, increasing hydrogen use across food & beverage to remove harmful viruses and bacteria may further compliment global hydrogen generator market growth.

Increasing fuel cell demand for the automotive, residential and commercial industry, owing to its ecofriendly characteristics is anticipated to stimulate industry growth. Global electric vehicle sales were market over 2 million units in 2015 and is projected to reach 7 million units by 2024. Increasing sales of electric vehicles unit will increase demand for hydrogen fuel stations, which is further anticipated to propel hydrogen generator market growth from 2016 to 2024.

The industry has witnessed government initiative to minimize electric vehicle price. For instance, the U.S. Government announced awards worth over USD 7 million for R&D towards reducing current electric vehicle charger’s costs by 50% in the next three years. The government focuses on reducing oil dependence through advanced vehicle technologies such as fuel cells electric vehicles (FCEV). In addition, low fuel and maintenance costs results in operational cost savings coupled with government incentives scheme are key factors increasing cost competitiveness of electric vehicles in comparison to conventional vehicles.

The Electric Vehicles Initiative (EVI), which is a multi-government policy forum dedicated to accelerate introduction and adoption of electric vehicles globally. EVI includes 15 member governments from Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America accompanied with participation from the International Energy Agency (IEA). Major automobile manufacturers including Ford Motors, GM, Nissan, Toyota, Honda, Mercedes-Benz and Tesla are major participants in the global electric vehicle market. Transportation risk and cost attached with hydrogen coupled with lacking storage infrastructure may hinder industry growth. However, increase need to minimize fossil fuels dependence for energy is forecast to drive industry growth.
