Hydrogen Electrolyzer Market, By Type (Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Electrolyzer, Alkaline Water Ele

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1943106


The Hydrogen Electrolyzer Market is expected to promise high growth owing to the increasing demand for electric vehicles in recent years. Increasing demand from End-Use Industries including such as chemicals, automobiles, energy, food & beverages, pharmaceutical & biotechnology, electronics, glass, and metal production & fabrication is expected to drive the growth of the market.

The process of decomposition of water into hydrogen and oxygen is known as hydrogen electrolysis. This process is mainly used for energy storage in the form of hydrogen. Hydrogen electrolyzer is used to carry out the process of hydrogen electrolysis. More than 85% of the global hydrogen is obtained from fossil fuels. It is environment-friendly, as there is no burning of fossil fuels. Hence, many small scale industries are using hydrogen electrolysis, as it is deemed as the future green fuel.

Segment Insights

Countries, such as the US, Canada, Germany, France, China, and India are some of the leading countries in the hydrogen electrolyzer market. This market in the Middle East is witnessing tremendous growth with Saudi Arabia poised to account for a significant market share.

Key players in the market are undertaking various strategies, including mergers and acquisitions to grow in the market. A new technology called the ‘anion exchange membrane’ electrolyzer is being introduced in the market replacing the PEM electrolyzer even though PEM uses precious metals, such as gold and palladium as layer filters, thus deeming the technology expensive. The AEM electrolyzer, however, is cheaper and cost-efficient.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • A potential substitute for fossil fuels in a number of applications
  • Increased demand for electric vehicles
  • Rise in awareness regarding the use of clean energy
