·   February 2021- Siemens AG and Air Liquide signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop a largescale partnership for creation of industrial hydrogen projects by laying the ground for mass manufacturing of electrolyzers in Europe.

Global Electrolyzers Market Highlights 2022 – 2030

The global electrolyzers market is estimated to garner a sizeable revenue and grow at a CAGR of 25% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for hydrogen as a green fuel, rise in demand for fuel-cell based automotive, and ongoing developments toward more efficient renewable energy technologies. Along with these, favorable regulatory policies regarding development of hydrogen infrastructure and reduction in the prices of electrolyzers are also expected to drive market growth in the upcoming years. Furthermore, largescale integration of renewable energy sources, coupled with surge in investments associated with the usage of environment-friendly technologies for power generation are projected to offer lucrative opportunities for market growth in the near future. According to the statistics by the International Energy Agency (IEA), global hydrogen electrolysis capacity additions is expected to touch 895.1 MW/y by the end of 2023, up from 11.9 MW/y in 2018.

The market is segmented by application into transportation, industry energy, industry feedstock, power generation, building heat & power, and others, out of which, the power generation segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global electrolyzers market on account of the rising demand for on-site electrolyzer setup in the power industry. Apart from these, the transportation segment in predicted to observe the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the growing investments in electrolyzer technology for fuel cells which are used in electric vehicles. Additionally, on the basis of product, the segment for alkaline electrolyzer is assessed to grab the largest share during the forecast period ascribing to its low capital cost, long lifespan, superior corrosion resistance and high ionic conductivity. 

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Electricity Consumption

In 2018, the world’s total energy supply was 14282 Mtoe, wherein the highest share in terms of source was captured by oil, accounting for 31.6%, followed by coal (26.9%), natural gas (22.8%), biofuels and waste (9.3%), nuclear (4.9%), hydro (2.5%), and other (2.0%). Where there was an increase in energy demand in 2018, the year 2019 witnessed slow growth as the energy efficiency improved owing to decline in the demand for cooling and heating. However, in 2020, the electricity demand decreased by 2.5% in the first quarter of 2020 due to the outbreak of Coronavirus resulting in government-imposed shutdowns in order to limit the spread of the virus, which was further followed by shutdown of numerous business operations impacting their growth. This also resulted in decline of 5.8% in the worldwide CO2 emissions which was recorded to be five times larger than the one recorded during the global financial crisis in 2009. However, in 2021, the demand for oil, gas and coal is estimated to witness growth, which is further projected to create opportunities for market growth. Moreover, rising environment degradation and awareness related to climate change is motivating many key players to employ sustainable energy strategies and invest significantly in environment-friendly power generation technologies with an aim to promote sustainable development among various nations around the world. Such factors are anticipated to promote the growth of the market in upcoming years.

Global Electrolyzers Market Regional Synopsis

On the basis of geographical analysis, the global electrolyzers market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East & Africa region. The market in the Europe region is estimated to witness noteworthy growth over the forecast period on the back of the increasing demand for hydrogen as a fuel from the automotive industry, and several initiatives from European government to encourage decarbonizing. In addition, growing electricity demand is also expected to drive the region’s market growth in the coming years. As per the data provided by Eurostat, the total electricity generation in the European Union was 2,780 TWh in 2019. More than half (56.4 %) of the net electricity generated in the EU in 2019 came from non-combustible primary sources. Moreover, the market in North America is assessed to acquire the largest share, which can be credited to the high usage of hydrogen in industries namely, refining, petrochemicals, fertilizers and glass purification, and strong presence of market players in the region.
