Global hydrogen generation market is expected to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period. The global hydrogen generation market is driven by the growing environmental concerns pertaining to greenhouse gas emissions, global warming and climate change. This has increased the need to adopt the cleaner forms of energy and reduce the carbon footprint. This in turn is expected to positively influence the market growth through 2025. Additionally, increasing demand across various end user industries such as oil & gas, transportation, semi-conductor, among others is further expected to propel the market growth over the next few years. Furthermore, supportive government policies for bringing down the emission levels and desulphurization of refineries activities are expected to fuel the market growth. However, hydrogen is highly flammable gas hence needs to be carefully handled and transported. This can hamper the market growth up to a certain extent. Besides, hydrogen does not exist in free state in nature hence a lot of energy is required to separate out hydrogen thereby slowing down the market growth.

The global hydrogen generation market is segmented based on system, technology, storage, application, company and region. Based on system, the market can be split into captive and merchant. The merchant segment is expected to register significant growth in the market since it can produce hydrogen using water electrolysis and natural gas processes. This reduces the need for transportation of fuel and construction of hydrogen generation infrastructure. Based on technology, the market can be categorized into steam methane reforming, partial oxidation of oil, coal gasification, electrolysis of water and others. The steam methane reforming segment is expected to dominate the market owing to the associated benefits such as affordability, production of hydrogen from conventional sources, high conversion efficiency since it is an advanced technology, among others.

Regionally, the hydrogen generation market has been segmented into various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, North America is expected to dominate the overall hydrogen generation market owing to the growing environmental concerns in the region. Additionally, U.S. is among the early adopters of clean energy solutions in the world for sectors such as power generation, manufacturing and transportation.

The major players operating in the hydrogen generation market are Air Liquide, Air Products and Chemicals, Iwatani, Hydrogenics, Linde, Praxair, Messer Group, Showa Denko, Ally Hi Tech, Caloric and others. Major companies are developing advanced technologies and launching new products in order to stay competitive in the market. Other competitive strategies include mergers & acquisitions and new product developments.
