One of the most popular choices for producing compounds like methanol and ammonia has been thought of as hydrogen gas. The fuel hydrogen gas is regarded as clean burning and helps to cause very little pollution. The hydrogen gas component turns out to be quite advantageous for the environment. For the fertilisers used in the agricultural industry, the ammonia component proves to be a crucial component. In order to produce gasoline and other petroleum products, hydrocracking technologies extensively utilise hydrogen. Due to individuals using vehicles more frequently, there has been a sharp rise in the use of fuel and diesel worldwide.


Driving Factors

The market will rise as a result of the ongoing development of dependable and cutting-edge technological power solutions and the expanding use of clean hydrogen generation technologies. The industrial trend will change as a result of the growing consumer shift toward environmental security and the widespread integration of renewable energy sources.


Carbon emissions and global warming are issues that have come to light. Numerous laws and regulations mandating a reduction in carbon emissions from various sectors have been passed by governments all over the world. By employing electricity to divide water into hydrogen and oxygen, electrolyzers produce hydrogen. Either renewable or nonrenewable resources were used to produce the electricity used. In addition, hydrogen can be generated by an electrolyzer working with solar or wind power. The creation of green hydrogen that is carbon neutral is encouraged by this strategy. Many businesses decide to install on-site electrolyzers with 1 to 5 MW of capacity in order to lower their carbon footprint, which has a substantial impact on the growth of the worldwide electrolyzer industry.


Renewable energy sources have seen a surge in popularity as a result of worries about climate change, the rise in earth's temperature, and the alarming growth in carbon emissions. Many companies have abandoned the conventional method of producing electricity from fossil fuels in favour of using abundant natural resources like solar, wind, natural gas, and water in order to behave responsibly. However, developing such programmes came with a substantial upfront cost. In contrast, because to technological advancements and fervent support for the advantages of renewable energy, several advantageous government policies have been put into place. Costs for renewable energy have come down, with the added bonus of having a far less carbon footprint. The demand for electrolyzers is fueled by these falling prices.


Restraining Factors

Alkaline electrolyzers have been used for electrolysis for a long time. Alkaline electrolyzers are unstable because of their vulnerability to sudden power spikes. Due to the accessibility of alternate hydrogen production techniques, which inhibited the advancement of new technologies, the market expansion of electrolyzers was hampered. The worldwide electrolyzers market is also significantly constrained by equipment supply delays.


Covid 19 Impact

The COVID-19 outbreak has shut down the industry globally, with severe government-imposed restrictions and limited labour management. The market is poised to regain its lost strength, though, as a result of reducing instances in tandem with the restart of numerous industrial operations. Additionally, the market demand will increase due to a growing trend toward the use of renewable resources and significant government investments in various initiatives.
