World Hydrogen

As Quoted In Ceramic Tech Today

Global demand for hydrogen is forecast to expand 3.4 percent annually through 2013. Gains will be driven in part by the use of more hydrogen in refining low sulfur fuels. The Asia/Pacific region will surpass North America as the global leader in hydrogen consumption by 2013.

This study analyzes the $39 billion world hydrogen industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by market (e.g., petroleum refining, chemical manufacturing), source (captive, merchant), world region (e.g., North America, Asia/Pacific, Western Europe) and for 17 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, discusses the hydrogen economy, evaluates company market share and profiles nine industry participants, including Air Products and Chemicals, Linde Group and Air Liquide.
