Global Hydrogen Generation Market: Overview
Hydrogen is a chemical element found on the earth, which is clean, efficient, and most versatile in nature with zero emission carrier of energy. It is not present in its molecular form but is available in plenty amounts. It is nonmetallic, colorless, non-toxic, odorless, highly combustible and tasteless diatomic gas. Water is the primary raw material used in the production process of hydrogen generation, which is a very environment-compatible process. It is the most renewable fuel that can be manufactured and transformed into electricity. It can be stored in various forms such as metal hydrides, gaseous, and liquid. It can transform into other energy forms via chemical conversions, catalytic combustion, and hydriding. Hydrogen possesses easy transportation, high efficiency, low boiling point and lightweight making it ideal for industrial use. It is an environment-friendly fuel as it produces pollution-free combustion products.
Global Hydrogen Generation Market: Growth Factors
Rising demand for cleaner fuels is a key factor for the growth of the global market. The decrease in quality of crudes and growth & development in the transportation sector are others factors responsible for the global market growth in future. Stringent regulations are implemented to avoid desulfurization problems while transportation may boost the global hydrogen generation market growth. Demand for distillate fuels and resulting development of the hydrogen fuel cell are anticipated to foster the global market growth in coming years. However, reduced quality of crude increased the importance of hydrogen for processing purposes; this is positively enhancing the global market. Hydrogen is highly flammable in nature; hence, it requires high safety during transportation and absence of appropriate transportation networks causes an increase in transportation costs; this is a major restraining factor of the global hydrogen generation market.
