The global Green Hydrogen market gathered revenue around USD 1.0 Billion in 2020 and market is set to grow USD 8.9 Billion by the end of 2027 and is estimated to expand at a modest CAGR of 53.0% during the prediction period 2021 to 2027.

Growth Factors:

The market is driven by factors like the lowering cost of producing renewable energy by all sources, development of electrolysis technologies and high demand from FCEVs and power industry.

Green hydrogen is used in different industries such as mobility, chemical, power, grid injection, industrial, and others. Green hydrogen is on its way to replace conventional gray, brown, and blue hydrogen due to its zero-emission manufacturing process and is cost-competitive due to technological advancements. Green hydrogen offers a sustainable substitute to fossil fuels to the various end-use industries.

In terms of volume, the alkaline electrolysis-based green hydrogen segment accounted for the largest share of 70% of the overall green hydrogen market in 2020. Alkaline electrolysis technology is the most widely preferred technology in the production of green hydrogen across the world.

Alkaline electrolysis utilizes two electrodes lowered in a basic electrolyte solution (such as sodium or potassium hydroxide), isolated by a non-conductive permeable membrane known as a diaphragm. As compared to PEM electrolysis, alkaline electrolysis tends to produce highly pure green hydrogen as hydrogen ions do not diffuse easily into an electrolyte solution and therefore it is more highly used.

This research report purposes at stressing the most lucrative growth prospects. The aim of the research report is to provide an inclusive valuation of the Green Hydrogen market and it encompasses thoughtful visions, actualities, industry-validated market findings, historic data, and prognoses by means of appropriate set of assumptions and practice.
