As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global Electrolyzers market expects to grow from USD 324.37 million in 2020 and to reach USD 528.81 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period 2021-2028.
An electrolyzer uses electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen during the electrolysis process. Electrolysis produces hydrogen gas in the electrolyzer system. The oxygen that remains is either released into the environment or captured and stored to provide other industrial operations or, in some instances, medicinal gases. Hydrogen is an energy carrier, it may be compressed or liquefied for storage and used to power any hydrogen fuel cell electric application, such as trains, buses, automobiles, and data centers. These devices are typically found in stationary, portable, and power production systems, such as fuel cell cars and handheld electronics.
Electrolyzers are available in a variety of sizes, from small to big. Small electrolyzers, for example, are appliance-sized units that are suited for small-scale distributed hydrogen production. On the other hand, large electrolyzers feature central manufacturing facilities that might be directly linked to renewable or non-greenhouse-gas-emitting forms of energy generation. The hydrogen produced by electrolysis is 99.99 percent pure and stored as a gas or a liquid. It’s utilized in the production of fuel cells for electric vehicles.
Growing Electrolyzers throughout the world, favorable regulatory policies for developing hydrogen infrastructure, electrolyzer adoption, technological progress, and accelerated investments in renewable energy technologies to minimize carbon emissions are the drivers driving the market. Lower workforce availability, the strong corrosive effect of liquid electrolytes used in high-temperature values, limited capacity to operate at low loads, and inability to run at high pressure are all challenges limiting the market growth. Increased use of renewable energy technologies, integration of hydrogen fuel and electric power generation, production flexibility, use of electric vehicles, and technological improvements are likely to drive market expansion.
Key players operating in the global Electrolyzers market include Hydrogenics, Proton Onsite, Siemens, Toshiba, Air Liquide, McPhy Energy, ITM Power, Idroenergy, Kobelco Eco-solutions, Areva H2Gen, IHT, Nel Hydrogen, McPhy Energy S.A., Hydrogenics Corp, Accagen SA, Next Hydrogen a Beijing CEI Technology Co.Ltd. To gain a significant market share in the global Electrolyzers market, the key players are now focusing on adopting strategies such as product innovations, mergers & acquisitions, recent developments, joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships.
