This research study, Disruptive Electrolyzer Technologies Enabling Green Hydrogen Production, focuses on the latest achievements in electrolyzer technologies. The study highlights the necessity for electrolysis technology and discusses the major challenges its development faces in gaining wide-scale market adoption and competitiveness.


Current low-cost hydrogen production methods are based on fossil fuels and are associated with GHG emissions. The process for the production of renewable hydrogen via electrolysis has not yet reached the necessary efficiency and scalability for industrial application because it is more expensive and requires further development to become competitive on a large scale.


Electrolysis technology offers several advantages, such as the production of carbon-neutral fuel, integration of renewable energies, facilitation of the electricity grid balance, and enhancement of the sustainable use of surplus energy. The findings and growth opportunities depicted in this study will help drive the economic growth and technology revolution of the electrolyzer industry.


The study provides a review of research focus areas and technological challenges to overcome within electrolysis technologies. Special attention is given to the description of the technical capabilities of all known electrolysis technologies. Additionally, it presents the key stakeholders involved in technology and other notable developments. The study also features patent landscaping of electrolysis technologies, highlighting the key patent owners/assignees, and the patent jurisdiction with the highest activity. The report outlines and describes the factors influencing market growth, such as limited hydrogen refuelling infrastructure and low manufacturing volume of electrolyzer components. The report also highlights emerging growth opportunities and presents a performance analysis and comparison of different electrolysis technologies. Finally, the report discusses key performance indicators (KPIs) of existing commercial electrolyzer technologies and analyzes the technical and cost targets.


The study covers the following topics:

  • Electrolyzer technologies: overview and current technology trends
