The U.S. was the major market in North America, whereas Germany contributed to the largest revenue in Europe region. Saudi Arabia was the major market in the Middle East and Africa region while Brazil dominated the South America market.
Growing demand for luxury vehicles bolsters market growth
The factors driving the growth of the hydrogen storage market include growing demand for low emission fuels, increasing consumption of ammonia and methanol worldwide and rising use of hydrogen storage tanks in transportation sector. The increasing demand for hydrogen-powered vehicles in North America and Europe is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of hydrogen storage market during the forecast period on account of easy availability of hydrogen filling infrastructure and stringent government regulations for the use of low emission generating vehicles.
Driven by growing need for energy supply in power and energy sectors and the increasing focus on generating energy from alternative energy sources including fuel cells, hydrogen and oxygen, the global hydrogen storage market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.
The hydrogen storage market possesses great investment potential during the forecast period on account of increasing advancements in the fuel cells and hydrogen technologies, and favorable government initiatives such as new funding opportunity (FOA) to increase the adoption of hydrogen storage technologies across the globe.
The higher costs associated with the extraction and installation of hydrogen storage is expected to be a major challenge for the manufacturers dealing with hydrogen storage systems on a global front; however, the increase in government investments and the growing persistent advances in research and development (R&D) efforts are expected to reduce the negative impact on the market in the long run. This is expected to further spike the demand for hydrogen storage during the forecast period.
Increasing government initiatives for promoting the use of hydrogen storage technologies provides opportunity for the global hydrogen storage market. North America and Europe are focusing on manufacturing zero-emission hydrogen vehicles for which countries such as the U.S. and the U.K. have released government funds and launched programs to encourage more businesses/companies to switch towards hydrogen-fueled vehicles. For instance, in 2016, the U.K. government had invested USD2.21 million to bring up an additional 100 hydrogen fuel cell cars and vans in the next few years. This would create growth opportunities for global hydrogen storage market during the forecast period.
Top four players account for major market share
The research states that the global market for hydrogen storage is highly consolidated in nature, where four major players constitute for the largest share in the global market. Some of the key players in the global hydrogen storage market include Air Liquide SA, Linde AG, Praxair, Inc., Worthington Industries Inc., McPhy Energy S.A., HBank Technologies Inc., Hexagon Composites ASA, VRV S.p.A. and INOXCVA.
