Regional snapshots

Asia-Pacific is the dominant and fastest growing market for hydrogen production. This is attributed to the increasing number of manufacturing plants and the development of various industries in the region. Rapid industrialization has fostered the growth of the hydrogen production market in Asia-Pacific. Robust economic development in countries like Japan, China and India has exponentially increased hydrogen consumption in various industries. The increase in public spending on building infrastructure for the distribution of various goods and government policies aimed at attracting FDI are expected to foster the industrial development of the region, which in turn is expected to boost the market growth of the hydrogen production in the region during the forecast period. period.

Market dynamics

DriverThe increased deployment of vehicles powered by fuel cells is increasing the demand for hydrogen. The development of fuel cell electric vehicles, particularly heavy-duty vehicles and passenger vehicles, is an attempt to reduce carbon emissions from vehicles around the world and is expected to stimulate demand for hydrogen. Additionally, increased urbanization and industrialization have pushed nations to develop and embrace green energy to protect the environment from global warming.

ConstraintsSignificant capital investments are associated with the production of hydrogen. Various technologies like electrolysis are very expensive and also consume a lot of energy while producing hydrogen. This factor could hamper the growth of the market in the years to come.

OpportunitiesThe various development strategies such as partnerships, joint ventures and agreements promote the growth of the market and provide lucrative growth opportunities for the market players. For example, Obayashi Corporation and Tuaropaki Trust have created a joint venture named Halcyon Power to develop New Zealand’s very first carbon-free hydrogen production unit.

ChallengesThe main challenge associated with hydrogen production is the lack of coal. The lack of coal due to the shutdown of mining centers due to heavy rainfall in 2020 has resulted in power cuts in major economies like China and India.

Highlights of the report

  • On the basis of technology, the steam methane reforming segment dominated the market. This is due to the extensive use of this technology around the world to produce hydrogen. It is a mature technology and it generates cheap hydrogen. Increasing industrialization is driving the demand for hydrogen for power generation in various industries, thus boosting the growth of this segment.

  • Based on the application, the others segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment due to the growth of the chemical industry. Chemistry is a huge industry which contributes significantly to the growth of the GDP. In the chemical industry, hydrogen is produced as a by-product and is supplied to many industries. Hence, this segment is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period.

  • Based on the type of system, the captive segment is estimated to be the most opportunistic segment during the forecast period. The captive segment refers to the production of hydrogen on site. The captive system is very widely used in developed markets due to the developed infrastructure. In addition, it eliminates distribution costs because in this system, hydrogen is produced and consumed at the site itself.
