The hydrogen energy industry is developing worldwide. The hydrogen economy is developing through higher
efficiencies of technologies and converging technologies like micro-, nano-, molecular technologies. Fuel Cell
Systems will lead to a fast increase of the hydrogen markets worldwide. The costs of production, storage,
distribution and usage will dicrease. On the other side global warming, air quality and local emissions but also
political reason will be powerful drivers for the increase. The energy markets worldwide are the biggest markets
with ongoing demand. But the markets will change dramaticly within the next 20 years because of molecular
technologies and the change of energy technologies, storage, distribution and usage.
Hydrogen is today produced worldwide with about 700 to 900 billion cubic metres per year mainly for chemical
and petrochemical industry. The primary drivers for the countries to move and move faster now are: energy security,
economic prosperity, converging technologies and environmental problems. The R & D spending arround the
world are 12 billion US $ last year with a growth of 15 percent for the next 10 years. The markets are growing
with more than 18 percent p.y. from a low level in 2003. Zero emission impact and non-toxic are properties too.
Structure and infrastructure of the energy industry change the global business to new companies, utilities,
usage and profitable future segments. Energy and Water converge. Today worldwide more than 4000 companies
and research institutes are direct and indirect on the road to this hydrogen business. We expect more than
20 000 companies by the year 2010.This study shows the markets, the competition, the technologies and
the developments to 2015 and a vision to 2025.
2. Experiences of helmut kaiser consultancy/hkc22.com
Since 1980 we develop technology studies and strategies worldwide. Energy is a key-market and energy related
technologies are converging fast since several years with a dramatic impact on all industries and societies.This
Century will reach the time to shape molecules and atoms and build another world. The key technologies and
developments are on our homepage.
3. Structure of the study
The total study is divided into following segments:
- State of Science 2008 and deveolpments 2010,2015,2025 worldwide
- Projects and applications 2008 and to expect the next years worldwide
- Technologies and converging technologies 2008 up to 2015 and 2025
- markets, companies, regions, countries and developments 2008 up to 2015
4. Aims and benefit of the study
This study will show the markets, science and developments worldwide. The study helps to build a sustainable,
zero emission, profitable business for the global activities in hydrogen and fuel cells in order to extract
value, develop leadership, change existing business or participate on this new and exciting business in the future.
The study is the basic for a strategic planning, commercialization and decision making. Implementation and
strategies are the main part of our business, if you like more.
