Electrolyzer Market size to exceed $53bn by 2030

  • Published Date: August 12, 2021

Electrolyzer Market size is expected to surpass USD 53 billion by 2030 as reported in the latest study by Global Market Insights Inc.

The electrolyzer industry is set to grow owing to increasing electricity demand across the industrial sector and ongoing transition from conventional fossil fuels to renewable energy. Favorable government policies & targets including financial incentives & mandates aimed at low-emission fuel will favor the business scenario. Regulatory efforts to enhance the share of hydrogen as a fuel in railways, trams, and other public transport will boost the business outlook. For instance, power consumption across Asia Pacific grew by around 4% from 2011 to 2020.

Solid oxide electrolyzer is anticipated to surpass USD 270 million by 2030. The accelerating usage as an industrial feedstock across chemical, manufacturing, and semiconductor industries is set to boost the product deployment. The technology offers key advantages high partial load range, dynamic operations, and ability to provide high gas purity, stimulating the business landscape. Surging investments in large-scale on-site hydrogen production for renewable energy storage, grid balancing, and power to gas stations will complement the electrolyzer market statistics.

The COVID- 19 outbreak represents a unique disturbance in the global economy and consumption & production are scaled back worldwide. It has resulted in the delay of various projects based on government guidelines. However, the industry is set to recover by the end of 2021 owing to the upliftment of lockdown by the respective authorities.

Growing demand for large-scale hydrogen production systems drive above 2 MW capacity

Above 2 MW rated electrolyzers are significantly proliferating owing to stringent regulatory policies to limit carbon emissions and increasing demand for large scale hydrogen production systems. Increasing applicability across the chemical industry for generating sustainable power mainly across the remote areas will foster the business scenario. Ongoing initiatives by respective government authorities toward hydrogen-powered cars along with increasing investments in the development of fuel cell infrastructure will complement the industry share0.
