North America hydrogen generation market is expected to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period. Increasing levels of pollution, surge in demand for clean fuel, stringent government regulations to control sulfur content in fuels are expected to boost the North America hydrogen generation market in future. Additionally, extensive application of hydrogen in various end user industries such as automotive, metal, semiconductor, chemical & glass, among others is also expected to propel the market during forecast period.

Hydrogen is among the most abundant elements on the Earth. It is present in the atmosphere in a gaseous state. It is commonly produced when natural gas is heated with steam, which produces syngas. Hydrogen can also be produced by electrolyzing water.

The North America hydrogen generation market is segmented based on delivery type, storage, technology, application, country, company and region. Based on delivery type, the market can be bifurcated into captive and merchant. The captive segment is expected to grow during forecast period attributable to its growing use in the metal industry. Additionally, this is a newer & efficient technology. Based on technology, the market can be fragmented into steam methane refining, partial oxidation of oil, coal gasification, electrolysis of water and others. The steam methane refining segment is expected to dominate the market during forecast period owing to its operational and economic benefits. Based on application, the market can be categorized into petroleum refinery, ammonia production, methanol production, transportation, power generation and others. The petroleum refinery segment is expected to dominate the market during forecast period. This can be ascribed to the increasing necessity to meet stringent sulfur content regulations in fossil fuel generation.

Major players operating in the North America hydrogen generation market include Air Products & Chemicals Inc., Hydrogenics Corporation, Praxair, Inc., Nuvera Fuel Cells, Inc., Proton OnSite, Teledyne Energy Systems Inc., Ballard Power Systems Inc., FuelCell Energy Inc., Plug Power Inc., Xebec and others. The companies are developing advanced technologies and launching new products to stay competitive in the market.
