NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The global hydrogen market value will rise to $196,934.5 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2020 to 2030. The market is being driven by the surging requirement for ammonia, owing to the mushrooming utilization of ammonia-based fertilizers, and burgeoning need for hydrogen in the refining industry.


The ballooning use of ammonia-based fertilizers is a major hydrogen market growth driver. Because of various human, climatic, and environmental factors, the availability of arable land is declining rapidly. As per the World Bank, arable land per person reduced from 0.2 hectares in 2011 to 0.19 hectares in 2016. This has massively propelled the demand for the judicious use of the available land, thereby driving the use of ammonia-based fertilizers.

Key Findings of Global Hydrogen Market Report

  • The steam–methane reforming production process was the most popular in the hydrogen market in the past. As compared to other processes, hydrogen production via it is cheaper.
  • The on-site generation distribution method will exhibit the fastest adoption in the hydrogen market in the upcoming years. The on-site generation method is more cost-effective than the cylinder and tanker methods when utilized for a long period (generally 10–15 years).
  • The chemical industry will contribute the highest revenue to the hydrogen market in the future. Hydrogen is used as a raw material in the production of various basic chemicals, such as ammonia and methanol.
  • Asia-Pacific (APAC) was the largest hydrogen market in the years gone by because of the existence of several petrochemical and chemical companies in South Korea, Japan, and China. As per the European Chemical Industry Council, China generated the highest revenue in the global chemical industry in 2018.
  • APAC will also be the fastest-growing region in the hydrogen market in the coming years owing to the shift of the production facilities of many end-use industries, such as chemical, petrochemical, and electronics, to APAC countries.

The COVID-19 pandemic hampered the progress of the hydrogen market, as the imposition of lockdowns led to the shutting down of various industries, including steel, chemical processing, and crude oil refining. Additionally, the closure of borders caused disruptions in natural gas supply, which subsequently affected the production and sale of hydrogen.

Linde Plc, Air Products and Chemicals Inc., Showa Denko K.K., Iwatani Corporation, Yateem Oxygen, Air Liquide S.A., SOL SpA, Nel ASA, Air Water Inc., and Messer Group GmbH are some of the major hydrogen market players.
