Since the first case of the pandemic was reported in December 2019, the global market has had a major impact on the functioning of the market. The green hydrogen market is currently functional in major geographies of the world, and hence, there are a considerable amount of inputs for the market growth by the end of the forecast period in 2028. There are a lot of countries that are dealing with the after-effects of the pandemic like China, the USA, Italy, along with the United Kingdom. Also, mushrooming economies of the world are facing a tough time in meeting the global demand of the market. The electricity demandSIEMENS has reduced especially during the pandemic. However, the consumption of the same has increased by a considerable level in the residential buildings.

Hence, the governments that are governing these economies across the world have been pushed to impose restrictions, lockdown, and implications related to international flights. Business activities have been facing many losses as a response to curb the spread of the pandemic. To reduce this prevailing negativity, the government is largely investing in research and development projects that will help the market grow as per the predicted figures by the end of 2028.



The emission of harmful greenhouse gases on a global scale is to the widespread and alarming use of fossil fuels in collaboration with industrialization. The gases like carbon dioxide, methane, along nitrous oxide are having a major role to play in increasing the temperature of the plant and leading to climate change. Since the last century, the global temperature has increased by one degree and hence, environmentalists are urging people to stop the obnoxious use of fossil fuels as sources of energy and thus demand a widespread use of green hydrogen. The emission control technologies are gaining a lot of momentum across several domains.


There are as many as 3 ways in which hydrogen can be stored. The stored hydrogen can be put to use in the form of electricity but owing to the round-trip productivity, is being used at a lower rate in comparison to the other ways of storing technology. Also, storing hydrogen energy is relatively an expensive process in comparison to other fossil fuels. There is a high density associated with liquid hydrogen which is being used as an energy transporter than the one present in a gaseous state and involves processes like liquefaction. This method of functioning makes use of a mechanical plant that has a very complex working and functioning. The result of this is that the overall costs are increased.


Various kinds of technologies are being put to use for the wide-scale production of hydrogen. All the hydrogen quantum that is being produced in the present scenario, is used majorly in petroleum refineries, along with the manufacturing of fertilizers to cope up with the market demand. The idea of adoption of green hydrogen across various market verticles is still on the verge of reaching its maximum growth and has a positive rate of adoption and use, globally.
