Electrolyzer Market by Product (Alkaline Electrolyzer, PEM Electrolyzer, and Solid Oxide Electrolyzer), Capacity (Less Than 500 Kw, 500 Kw to 2 MW, and Above 2 MW), and Application (Power Generation, Transportation, Industry Energy, Industry Feedstock, Building Heat & Power, and Others): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020–2027

The global electrolyzer market was valued at $0.2 billion in 2019, and is anticipated to generate $0.9 billion by 2027.The market is projected to experience growth at a CAGR of 24.6% from 2020 to 2027.
The electrolyzer systems are used to for breaking water into hydrogen and oxygen through electrolysis. The electrolyzers consist of a cathode, an anode, and a membrane. Hydrogen is collected on the cathode side, which is further stored for use in various industries. Oxygen is either released into atmosphere or collected and used in further industrial processes.
It is estimated that around 95% hydrogen produced is from fossil fuels. 1-4% of hydrogen is produced through electrolysis. With increase in emphasis for reducing carbon footprint, the use hydrogen as fuel in industries such as automotive, locomotive, manufacturing, and chemical encourages the use of hydrogen produced from renewable sources, electrolyzers being one of them. This acts as driving factor for electrolyzer market growth. The increasing fuel cell vehicle market also drives the electrolyzers market as it drives the demand for hydrogen fuel cells. Moreover, favorable government policies that offer subsidies and other benefits also act as market drivers for electrolyzers. However, supply constraints for equipment restraints the market growth. Moreover, delay in permission grants from local or central government authorities also limits the market growth for electrolyzers. Meanwhile, favorable policies from governments are encouraging use of electric vehicle and technological advancement can offer lucrative opportunity for industry growth in the near future.
Exempting electrolyzers from grid fees, taxes and levies, providing access to curtailed electricity and grid service revenues, and recognizing the value and price of green hydrogen are few measures that can be taken by government to promote healthy means of energy generation, which will aid the growth of electrolyzers market.
