World hydrogen to 2016

  1. 1. World Hydrogen to 2016This study analyzes the world hydrogen industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001,2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by market (e.g., petroleum refining, chemicalmanufacturing), source (captive, merchant), world region and major country. The study also considersmarket environment factors,Global demand to rise 4.1% annually through 2016Global demand for hydrogen is forecast to expand 4.1 percent per annum through 2016 to 286 billioncubic meters valued at $43.2 billion. Growth in hydrogen demand will benefit from strong activity in thepetroleum sector, its principal consumer, where increasing demand for low sulfur fuels in response tostricter environmental regulations will increase the amount of hydrogen required to produce them.Favorable demand fundamentals for hydrogen also exist in chemical manufacturing applications, andproduction of semiconductors, float glass, metal components and food processing.Merchant market poised for growth while captive consumption dominatesPetroleum refineries around the world are consuming greater quantities of hydrogen and this representsthe most significant opportunity to merchant suppliers of the gas. Of the 52.3 billion cubic meters ofoverall demand growth in hydrogen by 2016, 35 percent will be met by merchant suppliers. Merchant andon-purpose hydrogen generated by oil refineries will still account for 78 percent of worldwide hydrogenconsumption in 2016. Nonrefinery applications for hydrogen combined for 21 percent of total consumptionin 2011. Of this, chemical manufacturing (exclusive of ammonia and methanol production) accounted for12 percent; the remaining 9 percent was accounted for by other manufacturing processes and non-manufacturing applications. Nonchemical manufacturing industries that use hydrogen include float glass,metal components, semiconductors, and food processing.Get your copy of this report @ Details:Published: July 2012No. of Pages: 345Price: US$5900Asia/Pacific region to be leading hydrogen marketThe rapid growth of many economies in the Asia/Pacific region -- especially those of China and India --will make this region the world’s largest hydrogen consumer by 2013. Western Europe is third among theworld’s hydrogen consumers. In the Central and South American region, above average growth inhydrogen consumption will be led by the Brazilian economy; in Eastern Europe the economies of Russia,
  2. 2. Ukraine, Poland and Romania will lead the region in hydrogen gains; and growth in the Africa/Mideastregion will be led by the oil-rich economies of Saudi Arabia and Iran, as well as the growing industrializedeconomies of South Africa and Turkey.Hydrogen economy gains a footholdThe phrase “hydrogen economy” refers to programs or initiatives aimed at using hydrogen as an energycarrier to replace hydrocarbon fuels and reduce emissions produced by their consumption. Technologiessuch as fuel cells developed for cars, buses, power generation and other applications, along with theinfrastructural implications of their broad and increasing use, are being demonstrated in many countriesaround the world. Although the market impact of global, massive deployment of the hydrogen economyon hydrogen demand is beyond the time horizon of this report, activities related to the hydrogen economyare covered on a country by country basis, where applicableCOMPANY PROFILESCompany Profiles for nine players in the global industryTable of contentsI.
