Blue Hydrogen Market Is Expected To Reach A Revenue Of USD 5.5 Bn By 2033, At 10.8% CAGR: Dimension Market Research

Blue hydrogen, produced from natural gas with carbon capture and storage (CCS), is expected for significant growth. Driven by environmental regulations & technological developments, it acts as a transitional energy source. High investments and strategic partnerships are expected to improve its production and infrastructure, assisting global decarbonization efforts in the coming years.

New York, July 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Overview:

The Blue Hydrogen Market size is expected to reach USD 2.3 billion by 2024 and is further anticipated to reach USD 5.5 billion by 2033 according to Dimension Market Research. The market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 10.8% from 2024 to 2033.

Blue hydrogen is taken out from natural gas and backed by carbon capture and storage. The CO2 produced during the production process is collected and permanently stored. As a result, low-carbon hydrogen is created that produces no CO2. Hydrogen is produced using various technologies, like steam methane reforming, partial oil oxidation, and auto-thermal reforming.

Most hydrogen produced present is utilized in petroleum refineries & fertilizer manufacturing. Approximately 99% of it comes from fossil fuel reformation, which has shown to be a simple and cost-effective approach, but this has no meaningful climate advantages as CO2 is emitted throughout the process.
