Blue hydrogen is an industrial term for hydrogen derived from natural gas and supported by carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technology. The carbon dioxide (CO2) produced during its manufacturing process is captured and stored underground permanently, resulting in nearly pure, low-carbon hydrogen that generates no CO2 emissions. However, it does not offer any real environmental benefits as CO2 is emitted in the process. Some commonly used technologies to produce hydrogen include auto thermal reforming, steam methane reforming, partial oxidation of oil, and coal gasification. At present, most of the hydrogen manufactured worldwide is mainly utilized in the chemical industry, petroleum refineries, and the synthesis of ammonia and methanol. As a result, blue hydrogen finds extensive applications across the globe, ranging from industrial feedstock to fuel cell vehicles and energy storage.

Blue Hydrogen Market Trends:

The augmenting demand for greener energy sources and clean hydrogen from numerous end use industries, including chemical, petroleum refining, power generation, and transportation, represents one of the key factors driving the market growth. Moreover, there is an increase in the use of hydrogen-powered fuel cells as they are more lightweight and pollution-free, take up less space, and offer a higher energy storage density and substantial range advantage while having two to three times the efficiency of traditional combustion technologies, such as lithium-ion batteries. In line with this, the rising production and sales of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) due to their low refueling costs and maintenance costs and zero emissions into the environment have accelerated product adoption rates. This trend is further supported by favorable government initiatives promoting the uptake of fuel cell vehicles to minimize carbon emissions and reduce dependency on fossil fuels, such as offering tax rebates and subsidies on the purchase of FCEVs. In addition, the growing popularity of blue hydrogen to replace fossil fuel electricity generation in electricity grids, natural gas in domestic and industrial applications, and oil in transportation has catalyzed the product demand. Furthermore, the leading manufacturers are adopting advanced technologies and making heavy investments in expanding their existing production capabilities to meet the escalating demand for blue hydrogen from power generation and transportation applications, thereby contributing to market growth. Other factors, including the emerging trend of sustainable mobility, rapid industrialization, increasing blue hydrogen applications in fertilizers and chemicals like hydrochloric acid, and shifting focus toward decarbonizing various industries, are also creating a positive market outlook.
