Hydrogen production for refinery application: Largest market by application

The refining industry was the largest hydrogen consumer; it accounted for the largest share of total hydrogen consumption in 2015, with Asia-Pacific being the main regional market. The refinery segment is expected to be the highest growth contributor, followed by methanol, from 2016 to 2021. Hydrogen production in refineries is projected to grow faster due to increasing demand for petroleum products in developing countries such as India and China and tightening norms to reduce sulfur content in those countries.

Steam methane reforming: Largest used technology for hydrogen generation

Steam methane reforming of natural gas is one of the commonly used thermal methods for hydrogen generation. This process involves the reaction of methane with water in a reactor in the presence of a catalytic converter. This is a commonly used method because of easy availability of the raw material (methane) and a cost-effective process. This technology accounted for more than one-third of the market share (volume) in 2015 among other technologies of hydrogen production (partial oxidation, gasification, and electrolysis).

Asia-Pacific: Largest market for hydrogen generation

In 2015, Asia-Pacific was the largest market for hydrogen generation among other regions studied in this report. The region would continue to dominate the hydrogen generation market, due to growing demand for petroleum products from refineries with lower sulfur content. Governments in Asia-Pacific also administering stringent regulations regarding sulfur content of petroleum products, and are investing highly in R&D of hydrogen and fuel cell technology to reduce sulfur emissions in the environment.
