What Do Water Electrolysis Machine Manufacturers Need to Watch Out?

Replacement by alternative product is a constant threat.

Production of hydrogen can be done in many different ways and by many other machines. The large-scale demand for hydrogen for various applications is ought to rise in the future. Water electrolysis machines can produce hydrogen upto limited capacity.

The replacement of these machines by high hydrogen production alternative machines is a risk associated with this product. Also, the machine has high initial costs in which small-scale business owners hesitate to invest. All these factors can act as a stumbling block in the expansion of the market

Country Wise Analysis

How U.S. Water Electrolysis Machine Market will grow?

Hydrogen is used in refineries to lower the sulfur content of diesel fuel. Demand for hydrogen from refineries is increasing as demand for diesel fuel increases, both domestically and internationally, and regulations on sulfur levels tighten.

The U.S. is the ninth-largest oil reserves in the world. Texas is one of the nation's leading oil-producing states. The Eagle Ford Shale Play and the Permian Basin, in Texas, are among the most active drilling targets for conventional as well as unconventional oil, which includes shale and oil sands. Other major hydrogen-producing states are Louisiana, California, etc.

Nearly all of the hydrogen produced in the United States today is used in petroleum refining, fertilizer manufacturing, metal processing, and others. In addition, industrial gas producers will benefit from the growing hydrogen gas pipeline network, especially in the US Gulf region, which provides greater reliability in supplying hydrogen to their customers.

Plethora of opportunities provided by the oil and petroleum industry in the country will lead to exceeded sales of water electrolysis machine. Hence, according to Fact.MR analysis U.S. is expected to obtain a valuation of US$ 2,429.1 million in 2023.

How Market for Water Electrolysis Machine is Estimated to Rise in Germany?

The pharmaceutical industry utilizes hydrogen to make vitamins, medicinal drugs, and other pharmaceuticals. Bulk hydrogen is used to purify gases such as argon and others containing trace amounts of oxygen using a combination of hydrogen and oxygen catalysts, followed by the removal of the water.

Germany offers a developing environment for carrying out research and production of research-intensive, high-quality products. In 2018, the German pharmaceutical industry invested around €7.4 billion in research and development. Germany is the largest pharmaceutical production base within the European Union.

Considering the various platforms provided by Germany for the growth of the pharmaceutical industry, there will be a domino effect on the water electrolysis machine market in the future. Germany is expected to capture the European market by obtaining a value share of 34.7% in 2023.

How Steel Plant End Use Will Lead to Market Growth?

One of the biggest challenges for the steel industry is the production of decarbonization or 'green' steel in a highly competitive market. As a globally traded commodity with delicate cost margins, steel production is linked to major geopolitical issues such as tariffs and trade disputes.

But there is also a sudden and massive demand for low-carbon production of steel due to climate change. Hydrogen plays an important role in this process. In the green steel process, iron pellets can instead be reduced with hydrogen to form sponge iron or metallic iron, which can be processed into steel.

Also, by the introduction of non-fossil fuels such as hydrogen to produce iron pellets and renewable power to turn scrap and sponge iron into steel, the steel industry can eliminate fossil fuels from the process and significantly reduce emissions.

Currently, the largest steel producer is China, accounting for 57% of global steel production in 2020. The crude steel production of China in 2021 was recorded to be approximately 1,032.8 million metric tons. The steel plant end users of water electrolysis machines will capture a market share of 8.7% in 2023.

How the Proton Exchange Membrane Type Will Lead to Rise in Market for Water Electrolysis Machine?

During the evaluation period, proton exchange membranes type of water electrolysis machines is expected to maintain their dominance, as they are likely to have a higher adoption rate. This technique is in high demand as it produces high-purity hydrogen which is used for applications in the chemical and energy storage sectors.

Proton exchange membranes can be expected to have a relatively high share in the water electrolyzer market compared to alkaline water electrolysis methods, due to the advantages of deionized water and differential pressure operation, where hydrogen is less transferred even at high-pressure settings and at variable temperatures.

This technology is gaining traction, especially for on-site hydrogen generation applications, and hence is predicted to have a valuation of US$ 6,466.2 million in 2023.
