Brown Hydrogen Market

Brown Hydrogen Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2021-2031

COVID-19 Impact on Brown Hydrogen Market

  • The COVID-19 outbreak is hampering the brown hydrogen demand in many applications. To curb the spread of the coronavirus, many governments across the globe enforced lockdown measures. This resulted in the slowdown and halt in manufacturing operations, restrictions on supply and transport, and infrastructure slowdown, which are declining the demand for brown hydrogen.
  • Key players operating in the brown hydrogen market are primarily tier i and tier ii manufacturers and suppliers. Manufacture and supply chain facilities of these players have spread across various countries in Asia pacific, Europe, North America, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Many of these players halted their production output over the last few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has negatively affected the demand and supply chain of brown hydrogen.
  • The COVID-19 outbreak has directly affected the production and demand for brown hydrogen. The industrial shutdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has created disruption in the supply chain. Disruption in supply of raw materials is projected to hamper full-scale operations of companies operating in the market.

Key Drivers of Brown Hydrogen Market

  • The brown hydrogen market is driven by factors such as low raw material costs, low production costs, and easy raw material availability. Alternative hydrogen production technologies are also more expensive in comparison.
  • Rise in usage of brown hydrogen in refining applications is expected to boost the market during the forecast period. Chemicals and mining sectors continue to use brown hydrogen. Mining sector growth can be a major driver of the brown hydrogen market.

Restraints of Brown Hydrogen Market

  • The market is hampered by coal gasification's large carbon footprint. Furthermore, the market expansion is expected to be hampered by the development of renewable energy-based hydrogen, also known as green hydrogen. In addition, substitutes developed due to research and development can hamper the market during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific to Constitute Significant Share of Global Brown Hydrogen Market

  • In terms of region, the global brown hydrogen market can be split into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific is anticipated to dominate the global brown hydrogen market during the forecast period. Brown hydrogen production, i.e. coal gasification, is well-established in Asia Pacific. Brown hydrogen is a fundamental element in industrial operations, and has a developing consumer base in China. In addition, the coal gasification process for producing brown hydrogen is well established in Asia Pacific.
  • North America is the second-largest consumer of brown hydrogen, with U.S. leading the way in terms of production and consumption

Brown Hydrogen Market Introduction

  • Brown hydrogen (from brown coal) is produced through gasification (created from black coal). It is a well-known method for converting carbon-rich compounds into hydrogen and carbon dioxide, and is used in a wide range of industries. As a result, during gasification, the by-products are discharged into the atmosphere. Brown hydrogen can be produced using the coal gasification technique. Coal gasification is the process of converting coal from a solid to a gas.
  • Over the past half a decade, demand for brown hydrogen has increased due to its extensive usage in a multitude of applications, ranging from refining to chemicals
  • The market for brown hydrogen is divided into technology, end-use sector, and region. The market is divided into two categories based on technology: coal gasification with carbon capture storage and coal gasification without carbon capture storage. The brown hydrogen market is segmented into refining, chemicals, iron and steel, and other end-use industries.
