Industry & Technology Overview

The market was valued at $359.96 million in 2021 and is expected to reach $7,178.61 million by 2031.

Global Water Electrolysis Market Industry Overview

An electrolyzer is a system that breaks water into hydrogen and oxygen with the help of electricity. This process is known as electrolysis and it is mainly used to produce hydrogen, which is then stored as a compressed or liquefied gas. Oxygen produced during the electrolysis process is either released into the atmosphere or is stored to use for other purposes.

International Energy Agency (IEA) has projected that the energy demand will grow between 25% to 30% by 2040 with companies and governments trying to find sustainable and low-carbon emission energy sources. Hydrogen is being called the fuel of the future and IEA has projected that hydrogen production from water electrolysis can prevent the 830 million tons of CO2 annually from entering the atmosphere. Moreover, the growing demand for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, green ammonia, green methanol, and other applications is driving the growth of the water electrolysis market.

Market Lifecycle Stage

Water electrolysis is old technology and was first introduced in 1789 by the Dutch merchants Jan Rudolph Deiman and Adriaan Paets van Troostwijk, who used gold electrodes and an electrostatic generator to produce an electrostatic discharge in water. Almost 100 years later in 1888, Russian engineer Dmitry Lachinov developed the first industrial water electrolyzer for producing hydrogen and oxygen. In the mid-1960s, General Electric introduced the proton exchange membrane process for the Gemini Space Program, and it was later adopted for hydrogen production. Currently, there are four types of electrolyzers available in the market alkaline and polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) already commercialized and anion exchange membrane (AEM) and solid oxide at an early stage of commercialization.

Industrial Impact

The growth of the water electrolysis market is closely tied to the hydrogen and ammonia market. Water electrolysis is one of the clean methods for the production of hydrogen and is highly sustainable as there are no emissions and the feedstock used for hydrogen production is water. The growing demand for green hydrogen and green ammonia are among the major drivers of the growth of the water electrolysis market.

Impact of COVID-19

The outbreak of COVID-19 has caused several delays in manufacturing operations, which resulted in the slowdown of the water electrolysis market. Also, supply chain disruptions have negatively impacted the water electrolysis market. Currently, companies are trying to secure long-term supply contracts with other suppliers, to maintain smooth operations and interrupted supply of water electrolysis systems.

Industry & Technology Overview

Global Water Electrolysis Market Industry Overview

An electrolyzer is a system that breaks water into hydrogen and oxygen with the help of electricity. This process is known as electrolysis and it is mainly used to produce hydrogen, which is then stored as a compressed or liquefied gas. Oxygen produced during the electrolysis process is either released into the atmosphere or is stored to use for other purposes.

International Energy Agency (IEA) has projected that the energy demand will grow between 25% to 30% by 2040 with companies and governments trying to find sustainable and low-carbon emission energy sources. Hydrogen is being called the fuel of the future and IEA has projected that hydrogen production from water electrolysis can prevent the 830 million tons of CO2 annually from entering the atmosphere. Moreover, the growing demand for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, green ammonia, green methanol, and other applications is driving the growth of the water electrolysis market.

Market Lifecycle Stage

Water electrolysis is old technology and was first introduced in 1789 by the Dutch merchants Jan Rudolph Deiman and Adriaan Paets van Troostwijk, who used gold electrodes and an electrostatic generator to produce an electrostatic discharge in water. Almost 100 years later in 1888, Russian engineer Dmitry Lachinov developed the first industrial water electrolyzer for producing hydrogen and oxygen. In the mid-1960s, General Electric introduced the proton exchange membrane process for the Gemini Space Program, and it was later adopted for hydrogen production. Currently, there are four types of electrolyzers available in the market alkaline and polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) already commercialized and anion exchange membrane (AEM) and solid oxide at an early stage of commercialization.

Industrial Impact

The growth of the water electrolysis market is closely tied to the hydrogen and ammonia market. Water electrolysis is one of the clean methods for the production of hydrogen and is highly sustainable as there are no emissions and the feedstock used for hydrogen production is water. The growing demand for green hydrogen and green ammonia are among the major drivers of the growth of the water electrolysis market.

Impact of COVID-19

The outbreak of COVID-19 has caused several delays in manufacturing operations, which resulted in the slowdown of the water electrolysis market. Also, supply chain disruptions have negatively impacted the water electrolysis market. Currently, companies are trying to secure long-term supply contracts with other suppliers, to maintain smooth operations and interrupted supply of water electrolysis systems.
