Hydrogen Generation Market worth over $160bn by 2026

  • Published Date: March 30, 2020

Hydrogen Generation Market size is set to surpass USD 160 billion by 2026, as reported in the latest study by Global Market Insights Inc.

The global hydrogen generation market growth is attributed to the rising awareness toward energy efficiency coupled with escalating demand for hydrogen in oil & gas refineries. Strict norms and policies aimed at desulfurization of petroleum products will complement the market progression. Increasing crude oil consumption and stringent regulations for emissions control will enhance the industry value during the forecast period. Moreover, extensive utilization in applications including transport, semiconductor among others are the major underlying factors which is anticipated to positively impact the market demand for hydrogen generation.

The outbreak of corona virus has resulted in a pandemic which has adversely affected the global economy. It has affected the overall consumption pattern of hydrogen, thereby impacting the market expansion. The delay of various construction projects including H? infrastructural development owing to the lockdown enforcement in various economies will further influence the hydrogen demand. The requirement for massive investments to combat the pandemic along with the chronic imbalance between supply and demand may further challenge the generation of industrial hydrogen. However, the firms are adopting resourceful methods to recruit workforce to cope up with the upcoming production needs.

Increasing investments toward transport sector will boost Latin America market value

Latin America hydrogen generation market is projected to record substantial gains due to reduced costs for various non-conventional renewable energy resources. Utilization of hydrogen for energy storage coupled with abundant availability of renewable & hydric sources at competitive production prices will propel the industry revenue. Several international partnerships focused on research and promotion of green hydrogen usage for production processes is poised to surge the industry share. In addition, various government initiatives and programs including ENGIE aims at developing renewable hydrogen projects in Chile.
