Global hydrogen generation market is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 6.5%, in value terms, during 2018-2023. Regulation to reduce sulfur content, growing environmental concerns, increasing carbon emission, growing crude oil consumption, high investment by refiners for upgradation and expansion of refineries are some factors, that will propel the demand for hydrogen generation over the next five years. APAC is anticipated to remain a strong contributor in the hydrogen generation market in the forecast period, owing to strong government policy for desulfurization of fuel. MEA is expected to register faster CAGR than any other region, backed by increasing demand for ammonia.

Some of the major players operating in the global hydrogen generation are

Showa Denko K.K., Messer Group GmbH, Caloric Anlagenbau GmbH, Nuvera Fuel Cells, LLC, Xebec Adsorption Inc, Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation, Hydrogenics, Praxair Technology, Inc, Iwatani Corporation etc.

TechSci Research performed primary as well as exhaustive secondary research for this study. Initially, TechSci Research sourced a list of hydrogen generation producers globally. Subsequently, TechSci Research conducted primary research surveys with the identified companies. While interviewing, the respondents were also enquired about their competitors. Through this technique, TechSci Research was able to include producers that could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. TechSci Research analysed delivery mode, technology, application & regional presence of all major hydrogen generation providers across the globe.

TechSci Research calculated the market size for the global hydrogen generation using a bottom-up approach, where manufacturers’ value data for technology of (steam methane reforming, partial oxidation of oil, coal gasification & electrolysis of water), hydrogen generation was recorded as well as forecast for the future years was made. TechSci Research sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives, and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective providers to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources such as company annual reports, white papers, investor presentations and financial reports were also used by the TechSci Research.


Key Target Audience:

  • Global hydrogen generation providers
  • Research organizations and consulting companies
  • Organizations, associations and alliances related to Hydrogen Generation
  • Government bodies such as regulating authorities and policy makers.
  • Industry associations

·         Distributors & suppliers of hydrogen

 The study is useful in providing answers to several critical questions that are important for industry stakeholders, such as providers distributors and policy makers, which market segments should be targeted over the hydrogen generation coming years (next five years) in order to strategize investments and capitalize on growth of the market.
