Hydrogen Storage Tanks Market Size

Hydrogen Storage Tanks Market size surpassed USD 223.2 million in 2023 and is anticipated to grow at a staggering CAGR of 39.5% from 2024 to 2032 owing to the surging number of investments in hydrogen fueling infrastructure.

Hydrogen Storage Tanks Market

In recent years, several governments worldwide are looking to seek the perfect mix of future vehicle technologies for the expansion of personal mobility as well as freight transport with near-zero emissions. The influx of government-based supportive schemes are also making way for the rising number of investments towards the development of hydrogen fueling infrastructure.

Hydrogen storage tanks are primarily vessels and containers employed for storing hydrogen in the gaseous, liquid, and solid forms. They are high-pressure tanks, capable of storing hydrogen from 5,000 - 10,000 psi. The growing popularity of hydrogen-powered FCEVs and electricity-powered plug-in vehicles for replacing petroleum-based, gasoline and diesel fuel vehicles will further push the hydrogen storage tanks market growth.

The dearth of effective policies along with the scaling capital investments and operational costs mainly across the developing nations may impede the industry expansion by 2032. The lack of skilled workforce for effectively managing hydrogen under several conditions with limited consumer awareness regarding the efficiencies of hydrogen as a fuel that may also minimize the adoption of hydrogen storage tanks.


COVID-19 Impact

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic that hampered several global businesses worldwide, posed a negative impact on the hydrogen storage tanks market demand. This was mainly due to the declined annual installations of energy storage technologies. However, the surging government and regulatory support for penetrating hydrogen storage systems in various healthcare settings influenced the business development to some extent. For instance, the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI) introduced seven hydrogen fuel cell systems as primary power sources in field hospitals with testing and screening facilities across several parts of South Africa as alternatives energy sources to the electricity grid.

Hydrogen Storage Tanks Market Trends

The rapid industrial growth worldwide along with the higher government spending on infrastructure development are likely to drive the industry growth. The influx of various supportive government policies in emerging economies has offered a significant boost for the expansion of energy-intensive industries (EIIs). The strong presence of environmental regulations, policy interventions, trade facilitation are also enabling respective governments to match the increasing domestic demand to enter the international markets, thereby spurring the business statistics.
