Driving Factors

The drivers for the green hydrogen market include declining costs of renewable energy, increased investments in research and development, supportive policies and regulations, and growing demand for decarbonization solutions. As the costs of renewable energy, such as solar and wind, continue to decrease, it becomes more cost-effective to produce green hydrogen through electrolysis. Investments in R&D and pilot projects are driving advancements in green hydrogen technologies and infrastructure. Supportive policies and regulations, such as carbon pricing and renewable energy targets, create a favorable environment for green hydrogen production and use. Additionally, the growing global demand for decarbonization solutions across various sectors, including transportation, industry, and power generation, is increasing the demand for green hydrogen as a clean energy carrier.


Restraining Factors

The restraints for the green hydrogen market include high initial capital costs, limited scalability, and competition from other low-carbon alternatives. The capital costs associated with setting up green hydrogen production facilities, including electrolyzers and renewable energy infrastructure, can be significant, making it challenging for some projects to obtain financing. The limited scalability of green hydrogen production due to technological constraints and infrastructure limitations also poses a challenge.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2022, the alkaline electrolysis segment accounted for around 68.4% market share

On the basis of the technology, the global green hydrogen market is segmented into alkaline electrolysis and PEM electrolysis. The alkaline electrolysis segment is dominating the market with the largest market share in 2022, due to its established and mature technology, lower capital costs compared to other electrolysis methods, and adaptability to intermittent renewable energy sources. Alkaline electrolysis involves using an electrolyte solution to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, making it a popular choice for large-scale hydrogen production. Its dominance in the market can be attributed to its favorable economic and technological maturity, making it a preferred choice for many green hydrogen projects globally.


  • In 2022, the solar energy segment dominated the with around 52.7% revenue share

Based on renewable energy, the global green hydrogen market is segmented into solar energy, wind energy, and others. Out of this, the solar energy segment is dominating the market with the largest market share in 2022, due to its abundant availability, scalability, and renewable nature. Solar energy, harnessed through photovoltaic (PV) panels or concentrated solar power (CSP) systems, is used to generate electricity, which can then be used to power electrolyzers for green hydrogen production. Solar energy's dominance in the market is driven by its potential to provide a sustainable and carbon-free energy source for hydrogen production, with favorable economic and environmental benefits. Solar energy is expected to continue its strong presence in the green hydrogen market, contributing to the overall growth of the industry.
