The Increasing Demand for Clean Energy Sources Augmenting the Market Growth 

Hydrogen is a clean, renewable, and abundant energy source that is produced from a variety of sources, including water electrolysis, biomass, and natural gas. It can be used to directly power vehicles, generate electricity, and store energy for later use. The demand for clean energy sources is driven by the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the dependence on fossil fuels. Additionally, the rising cost of traditional fuels, such as oil and natural gas, is accelerating the demand for hydrogen across industry verticals. This is further augmented by the growing cost of electricity, which has rendered hydrogen-based energy sources more attractive. Apart from this, numerous initiatives undertaken by the governments of several countries to encourage the masses to adopt clean energy sources are creating a positive market outlook.

What is Hydrogen Generation?

Hydrogen generation is the process of producing hydrogen gas in order to use as a fuel or energy source. It is done in several ways, including electrolysis of water, reforming of natural gas, and biomass gasification. Through electrolysis, an electrical current is applied to water in order to split it into its component elements, hydrogen, and oxygen. The hydrogen gas produced is used as a fuel source or stored in fuel cells. The reforming of natural gas is a process that breaks down the molecules of the gas in order to produce hydrogen and other gases. Lastly, biomass gasification is the process of breaking down organic matter to produce hydrogen and other gases. It is an efficient energy source, as it is clean burning and does not emit any carbon dioxide when burned. It is also lighter than fossil fuels, making it easier to transport.

COVID-19 Impact:

The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a severe impact on the production and demand for hydrogen generation. The chemical industry has suffered greatly, with oil and gas exploration activities taking a major hit during the pandemic. With the growing need for medical supplies during the outbreak, the existing reserves of hydrogen have been utilized to meet these requirements. The power industry has been at the forefront of the demand for hydrogen, accounting for much of the market demand. Government-imposed regulations, such as lockdowns, restricted international travel, and social distancing have had a detrimental effect on the financial state of various countries. However, governments have been keen to use the reduced emissions caused by the shutdown of the industry and transport sector to push the demand for clean fuel alternatives, including hydrogen, in the post-COVID era, which is positively influencing the market.

Hydrogen Generation Market Trends:

At present, governing authorities of numerous nations are taking significant initiatives to reduce carbon emissions in the automotive industry, resulting in increased sales of electric vehicles. Along with this, hydrogen is widely utilized as a coolant in power plant generators, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. In addition, several projects are aiming to reduce the costs and environmental impacts of hydrogen production technologies. Nuclear energy-based hydrogen generation is considered an economical solution for minimizing the carbon footprint and addressing global climate change, which is further driving demand for hydrogen generation in glass purification, fertilizer production, and semiconductor manufacturing across the globe. Apart from this, the widespread adoption of hydrogen in the production of new materials, such as hydrogenated polymers and hydrogenated metals, offering improved performance and cost savings compared to traditional materials, is providing thrust to the market. Moreover, the development and construction of cost-effective and energy-saving hydrogen stations are creating a positive market outlook. Furthermore, continual technological advancements and cost reductions are making hydrogen generation more affordable and accessible. This is driving investments in the sector, and thus helping to create new markets for hydrogen-based products and services.
