Based on transportation, the hydrogen market is bifurcated into long distance and short distance. Short distance is expected to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period. Long-distance hydrogen transportation is crucial to enabling its widespread adoption and use in many places that may lack local hydrogen manufacturing capabilities. Also, there are investments in new technologies for the long distance transportation. Recently, composite storage containers with capacity of 560-900 kg of hydrogen per trailer have been created. In other nations, such tube trailers are being utilized to distribute compressed natural gas.

This report segments the hydrogen market based on application into four categories: energy, mobility, chemical & refinery and others. Chemical & refinery is expected to hold the largest market during forecaste period. Hydrogen is employed as a significant processing component in many hydrotreating processes in chemiacal & petroleum refineries, such as hydrodesulfurization, hydrodimerization, aromatization, and hydrocracking. Hydrogen is used in chemical & refineries to reduce the sulphur level of diesel fuel. In mobility, increasing initiatives by government in hydrogen cell based vehicles and hydrogen fueling stations.
