Global Hydrogen Generation Market to Reach $263.5 Billion by 2027

DUBLIN, Sept. 2, 2022 -- The 'Global Hydrogen Generation Market by Application (Petroleum Refinery, Ammonia & Methanol production, Transportation, Power Generation), Generation & Delivery Mode (Captive, Merchant), Source (Blue, Green & Grey Hydrogen), Technology, and Region - Forecast to 2025' report has been added to's offering.

Hydrogen has long been recognized as a possible low-carbon transportation fuel. The market has a promising growth potential due to several factors, including the role of hydrogen generation playing in carbon emission reduction and Increase in fuel cell based electric vehicles and hydrogen based economy are driving the hydrogen generation market. The global hydrogen generation market is projected to reach USD 263.5 Billion by 2027 from an estimated market size of USD 160.0 Billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 10.5% during the forecast period.

Electrolysis : The fastest growing segment of hydrogen generation market, by technology

Electrolysis might be a promising technique for hydrogen production in the future. The simplest electrolysis method transforms water into hydrogen and oxygen by placing two electrodes in it and running an electrical current through them. Other than hydrogen and oxygen, electrolysis does not emit or produce any by-products

Gray hydrogen: The fastest growing segment of hydrogen generation market, by source

Today, gray hydrogen makes up most of the hydrogen produced. Natural gas is reformatted to create grey hydrogen, which is utilized to reorganize the molecular structure of hydrocarbons. The cost of producing grey hydrogen is lower than both blue hydrogenlue and green hydrogen. Gray hydrogen covers most of the market comparing to blue and green hydrogen.

The petroleum refinery segment is expected to be the most significant hydrogen generation market, by application

The hydrogen generation market, by application, is segmented into Refinery, Ammonia Production, Methanol Production, Transportation, Power Generation. The petroleum refinery segment accounted for the largest share of 50.8% of the hydrogen generation market in 2021. The rising applications of hydrogen in oil refineries to foster demand for hydrogen is expected to drive the petroleum refineries segment during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific: The fastest-growing region in the hydrogen energy storage market

The Asia Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. The growth of the Asia Pacific hydrogen generation market is expected to be driven by Increase in fuel cell based electric vehicles and hydrogen based economy.
