Merchant segment is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period
Merchant-based hydrogen generation is the fastest growing segment in the hydrogen generation market. The merchant-based hydrogen can be produced by water electrolysis and natural gas processes. This method of distributed hydrogen generation reduces the need for transportation of fuel and construction of new hydrogen generation infrastructure. Hence, merchant-based hydrogen generation is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period.
Steam reforming segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period
Steam reforming method of hydrogen generation, being a mature and proven technology, is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. With the easy availability of raw materials such as natural gas and cost-effective operations of steam reforming technology, large refinery plants and industries rely on steam reforming for large-scale hydrogen generation operations.
Asia Pacific is expected to record the highest growth rate during the forecast period
The Asia Pacific market is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period due to increasing refinery operations in countries such as China and India and the rising deployment of fuel cell vehicles in Japan and South Korea. The oil demand in Asia Pacific would grow by an average of 2% annually by 2023 with the region highly dependent on diesel and gasoline for transportation purposes. Also, with major automotive manufacturers in the region such as Toyota and Honda investing in fuel cell electric vehicle technology and infrastructure, the demand for fuel cells is expected to peak in the coming years. The rising demand for fuel cells is expected to drive the Asia Pacific market.
