    This report is the fourth edition of a study of the global and Russian market for hydrogen (“gray”, “blue”, “green”, etc.) and equipment for its production.


    The purpose of the study is to analyze the world and Russian markets for hydrogen and equipment for its production.

    The object of research is hydrogen ("gray", "blue", "green", etc.), equipment for its production.

    This work is a desk study. The sources of information were the data of Rosstat, customs statistics of the Russian Federation, railway transportations of the Russian Federation, foreign trade operations of the UN UNdate, the database of InfoMine LLC, as well as materials of the industry and regional press, annual and quarterly reports of securities issuers, websites of manufacturers and consumers of hydrogen.

    The peculiarities of the research are: the division of the research object into types ("gray", "blue", "green" and other hydrogen), as well as a detailed consideration of the existing concepts for the development of "hydrogen" energy in different countries.

    Chronological scope of the study: 2004-2020; forecast - 2021-2030

    Geography of research: the world - a brief overview, the Russian Federation - a comprehensive detailed analysis of the market and the concept of development.


    The report consists of 3 main parts, contains 153 pages, including 27 figures, 50 tables and 5 appendices.

    The first chapter of the report is devoted to hydrogen production technology. It discusses the methods of hydrogen production ("gray", "blue", "green", etc.).

    In the second chapter, the world market of hydrogen (“gray”, “blue”, “green”, etc.) is investigated. In particular, a brief description of the current state of the market (dynamics and structure of production and consumption) is presented, as well as an analysis of the prospects for using hydrogen in new consumption sectors, including within the framework of national strategies for the development of hydrogen energy.

    The third chapter is devoted to the description and characteristics of the Russian market. In particular, the requirements for the quality of the products are presented, the production of hydrogen in Russia in 2004-2020 is reflected. A characteristic is given of those few enterprises that produce commercial hydrogen for the purpose of supplying it to the domestic market, and specialized gas companies involved in the sale of hydrogen are studied.

    In addition, the chapter discusses the structure of hydrogen prices: the cost of production, transportation, storage. The prices of hydrogen suppliers in 2017-2020 are given.

    Several subsections of the chapter are devoted to the study of the consumption, transportation and storage of hydrogen. The volume and structure of consumption, brief characteristics of the current state of the main consuming industries. Methods of storage and transportation of hydrogen, as well as geography and volumes of supplies are considered in detail.

    There is practically no foreign trade in hydrogen, because there is no network of hydrogen pipelines. There are only small supplies of bottled gas that do not have a noticeable impact on the domestic market. Therefore, the section devoted to the export-import of hydrogen is absent in this work.

    In one of the subsections of the chapter, the Russian concept of the development of "hydrogen" energy is described in detail, as well as a forecast for the production and consumption of hydrogen in Russia until 2030.

    The appendices provide data on the features of the "hydrogen" Strategies of the largest economies of the world, as well as hydrotreating and hydrocracking units at Russian refineries, contact information of the main Russian enterprises producing and supplying commercial hydrogen to the domestic market is given.


    Target audience of the study:

    - hydrogen market participants - producers, consumers, traders;

    - potential investors.


    The proposed study claims to be a reference manual for marketing services and management decision-makers working in the hydrogen market.
