Global $5.4 Billion Hydrogen Storage Materials, Technologies and Market, 2021

DUBLIN, September 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

The "Hydrogen Storage: Materials, Technologies and Global Markets" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Hydrogen is identified as a key future energy source. However, storing hydrogen can be a challenge and requires development of advanced storage methods. Hence, the hydrogen storage space requires the presence of companies that are specialized in various hydrogen storage technologies. This research defines hydrogen storage technologies as various forms of materials, storage media and technology used to store hydrogen in a form that can be used as energy source as and when required.

Hydrogen can be stored physically or can be stored using chemical or material-based methods. Physical storage currently dominates the market, and in physical form, hydrogen can be stored as either a gas or a liquid. Materials-based hydrogen storage includes metal hydride, chemical hydrogen storage and sorbent materials.

Hydrogen storage is the key enabling technology for the advancement of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in various end-user industries such as chemicals, oil refining, metal processing, and transportation. Of these, the chemicals end-user segment accounts for the majority of the market; however, the transportation end-user segment is witnessing the strongest growth in all geographical regions.

To calculate and segment the market, this research has considered physical, chemical and material-based storage technologies for the hydrogen storage market. Along with product and solutions revenue, the services revenue that a company reports within its total revenue has also been considered.
