Report Description

Middle East Blue Hydrogen Market
Middle East Blue Hydrogen Market

The Middle East Blue Hydrogen Market was valued at 3.8 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a steady rate of around 8.6% during the forecast period (2023-2030) owing to the growing interest in developing a hydrogen economy coupled with the rising industrial demands of hydrogen for their processes. Middle East Blue Hydrogen is a type of hydrogen produced from natural gas through a process called steam methane reforming (SMR) or autothermal reforming (ATR). The term “blue” refers to the fact that hydrogen is produced with carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions significantly. The Middle East area holds extensive natural gas deposits, which encompass the largest gas field globally, known as the South Pars/North Dome Field. Saudi Arabia and Qatar are positioned within the top six nations worldwide when it comes to confirmed gas reserves. At present, the Middle East possesses about 10% of the worldwide capacity for Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS).

Some of the major players operating in the market include Bankset Energy, GREENRAIL, Jakson Group, LG Electronics, Central Electronics Limited, WorldSolar, Trina Solar, KYOCERA Corporation, Canadian Solar, AXITEC, LLC.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Technology, steam methane reforming category to witness significant market growth during the forecast period.”

Based on the technology, the market is segmented into steam methane reforming, autothermal reforming, and partial oxidation. Among these, the steam methane reforming segment is leading the market due to the rising demand of cost-effective methods to produce hydrogen on a large scale. This method involves using natural gas (methane) and steam in a process that extracts hydrogen. As natural gas is abundant and relatively affordable, it makes Middle East Blue Hydrogen production economically attractive and hence accelerates the market.

“Amongst industry, the ammonia production to hold a significant CAGR in the market in 2022.”

Based on the industry, the market is bifurcated into ammonia production, methanol production, petroleum refining, and others. As countries strive to adopt cleaner energy sources, there is an increasing need for sustainable fuels and chemicals. Ammonia serves as a valuable carrier of hydrogen, making it an essential component of the Middle East Blue Hydrogen market’s growth, offering a practical solution to both energy storage and transportation challenges while supporting a transition to a greener future and therefore holds a considerable share of the Middle East Blue Hydrogen market.

“Middle East is currently gaining attention in the market.”

The blue hydrogen market in the Middle East region is currently emerging and gaining attention. Countries in the Middle East are exploring the potential of blue hydrogen as a cleaner alternative to traditional fossil fuels. The region’s abundant natural gas resources make it well-suited for blue hydrogen production, which involves capturing carbon emissions during the hydrogen production process. Several Middle Eastern countries, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Oman, have started to invest in blue hydrogen projects and partnerships. These initiatives aim to leverage existing natural gas infrastructure to produce hydrogen with reduced carbon emissions. The Middle East’s strategic geographic location and established energy industry could position it as a significant player in the blue hydrogen market.
