Hydrogen Pipeline Market Trends

  • International efforts to limit carbon emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change are driving the market growth

Market CAGR for Hydrogen Pipeline is being driven by international efforts to limit carbon emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change. The increasing demand for hydrogen has rendered the worldwide market for hydrogen pipelines indispensable for a variety of industries. This market segment contains a vast array of products, including, among others, underground and aboveground conduit systems. In addition to transportation, energy, and manufacturing, hydrogen pipeline demand has increased for other reasons. These factors facilitate the growth of the hydrogen pipeline market across various industries.

An additional significant endeavor, carbon dioxide reduction seeks to mitigate the effects of climate change by implementing more sustainable and environmentally favorable energy sources. The extensive adoption of hydrogen as a versatile and environmentally sustainable energy source has experienced substantial growth in tandem with nations' efforts to reduce carbon emissions. In an effort to promote the advancement of a low-carbon, sustainable energy ecosystem, a multitude of sectors are undertaking investigations into the potential applications of hydrogen as a purified energy resource. Consequently, these decarbonization initiatives drive the hydrogen pipeline market, highlighting the increasing importance of hydrogen infrastructure in facilitating the broader adoption of clean hydrogen as an environmentally sustainable energy source.

The net-zero emissions scenario is revolutionizing the hydrogen production process in an unprecedented way. It is expected that low-carbon processes will comprise the predominant means of hydrogen production by the year 2050. As a consequence, the utilization and production of renewable hydrogen have acquired increased significance. Fertilizer facilities and petroleum refineries utilize the vast majority of constructed hydrogen. Unfortunately, the fossil fuel reforming process leads to the release of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere; this constitutes the predominant source of the hydrogen generated. In order to mitigate this issue, green hydrogen is generated via electrolysis, a carbon-free process that separates water into oxygen and hydrogen via electrical means. These investments comprise the costs associated with the infrastructure and piping necessary for the production of renewable hydrogen. Ultimately, these investments will drive the growth of the hydrogen pipeline sector. For instance, the European Commission, for instance, aims to have a financial system with climate neutrality, or net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases, by 2050. Thus, result in driving the Hydrogen Pipeline market revenue.

Hydrogen Pipeline Market Segment Insights

Hydrogen Pipeline Type Insights

The Hydrogen Pipeline market segmentation, based on type, includes Mobile Pipelines and Fixed Pipelines. The fixed pipelines segment dominated the market in 2023. They provide a reliable and durable means of hydrogen transfer due to the fact that they are perpetually submerged. These steel or plastic conduits efficiently transport vast quantities of hydrogen at high pressure, thereby reducing transportation expenses.

Hydrogen Pipeline Distance Insights

The Hydrogen Pipeline market segmentation, based on distance, includes Up to 300 Km and More than 300 Km. The category "More than 300 Km" generated the highest revenue in 2023. Pipelines extending beyond 300 kilometers can facilitate interregional integration. One example is the integration of renewable hydrogen generation sources, such as wind farms or solar farms, with urban areas or manufacturing centers. Cross-border travel is enabled by this connectivity, which thus facilitates the development of a hydrogen economy.

Hydrogen Pipeline Hydrogen Form Insights

The Hydrogen Pipeline market segmentation, based on hydrogen form, includes Gas and Liquid. The gas segment exhibited market dominance in 2023. By employing natural gas as its fuel, the steam methane reforming (SMR) method is responsible for the production of over 96% of the hydrogen produced on a scale. Natural gas pipelines can transport hydrogen because they are designed to transport combustible gases.

Hydrogen Pipeline Pipeline Structure Insights

The Hydrogen Pipeline market segmentation, based on pipeline structure, includes Metal and Plastics & Composites. The plastics & composites segment exhibited market dominance in 2023, which was distinguished by their exceptional resistance to corrosion, lightweight construction, and high strength-to-weight ratio due to their reinforced polymer matrix composition. Due to their versatility in accommodating various pipeline terrains and surfaces, the installation process is simplified, resulting in reduced costs. Hydrogen delivery plastics & composites are a more cost-effective and superior alternative to conventional metal pipelines.
