Global Water Electrolysis Market 2021: Opportunities, Share

Posted by Komal Boudhh on June 1st, 2021

The global water electrolysis market is growing rapidly. The market rise attributes to the increasing uptake of high energy density fuel cell systems and rising green hydrogen generations. Increasing awareness of the benefits of hydrogen fuel in transport and mobility influences the market growth. Besides, the growing demand for clean energy (carbon-free energy) drives the growth of the market. 

Moreover, the rising uses of water electrolysis processes to integrate renewables through the power to the gas facility escalate the market growth. According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the water electrolysis market valuation is poised to reach USD 12,975 MN by 2025, registering 7.58% CAGR during the assessment period (2019–2025). The highly effective water electrolysis methods are used in photovoltaic cells, displays, OLED lighting, and solar batteries & memory devices. 

The current focus for development in alkaline water electrolysis is towards obtaining higher efficiency by applying high temperature and high-pressure operation. The Spurring rise across the end-user industries boosts the growth of the market. Additionally, the high efficiency and increased pressure to reduce industrial carbon emission increase the market size, fostering the incorporation of water electrolysis by end users. 

On the other hand, various constraints of water electrolysis processes hinder the growth of the global water electrolysis market. Also, substitute for water electrolysis and increase water electrolyzer cost is a major factor projected to impede the market growth. Nevertheless, technological upgrades expected in recent years would support market growth throughout the assessment period.

Industry/ Innovation/ Related News

September 30, 2020 ---- a group of scientists from Pennsylvania State University announced the integration of the power of the sea, sun, and wind to yield clean-burning hydrogen fuel. The team recently received a USD 300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to continue exploring seawater electrolysis. 

These researchers combined water purification technology into a new proof-of-concept design for a seawater electrolyzer, employing an electric current to separate the hydrogen and oxygen present in water molecules. The new technique “seawater splitting” could render an easy method to convert solar and wind energy into a portable and storable fuel. Researchers in environmental engineering and the first author of the paper examine their newly-designed seawater electrolyzer.
