The global PEM water electrolyzer market size surpassed USD 6.59 billion in 2022 and is projected to rise to USD 13.12 billion by 2032, anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.13 percent during the projection period from 2023 to 2032.
PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) water electrolyzer is a device that uses electricity to split water into its parts of hydrogen and oxygen using a Proton Exchange Membrane. The procedure of splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen is called electrolysis. The hydrogen produced through this process can be used as fuel for various applications, such as fuel cells for electric vehicles or as a feedstock for producing ammonia and other chemicals. So, the PEM water electrolyzer market refers to the market for these devices used for hydrogen generation through water electrolysis.
Furthermore, the market is driven by the increasing demand for clean and sustainable energy solutions, government initiatives to promote the adoption of hydrogen as a clean energy source, and the growing adoption of fuel-cell electric vehicles, which have the potential to replace traditional combustion engines and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Also, hydrogen produced through PEM water electrolysis can be stored and used as a backup power source during high demand or power outages.

During the forecast period, the PEM water electrolyzer market is anticipated to experience the highest market share from the North American region. This is driven by several factors driving the market's growth, including increasing demand for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, growing investments in renewable energy, and government initiatives to promote the use of green hydrogen. In addition, several companies in North America are actively engaged in the development and commercialization of PEM water electrolyzers.
For instance, the Canadian company Hydrogenics Corporation (now part of Cummins Inc.) has been developing and manufacturing PEM water electrolyzers for over 20 years. Other regional companies, such as Nel Hydrogen and Plug Power, are also actively involved in the PEM water electrolyzer market.
PEM water electrolyzers are a key component in the production of hydrogen, which is used as fuel in fuel cell vehicles, power plants, and other applications. Hydrogen fuel cells offer several advantages over traditional fossil fuels, including higher efficiency, lower emissions, and reduced dependence on foreign oil. As a result, there has been surging interest in hydrogen fuel cell technology in recent years, particularly in the transportation sector.
To meet the growing demand for hydrogen fuel cells, there has been a corresponding increase in the demand for PEM water electrolyzers, which produce hydrogen from water. This has led to significant investments in the development and commercialization of PEM water electrolyzers by companies worldwide. Thus, the demand for hydrogen fuel cells is expected to continue to drive growth in the PEM water electrolyzer market in the coming years as more applications for hydrogen fuel cells are identified, and governments worldwide implement policies to promote the use of green hydrogen.
Fuel cells offer several advantages over traditional fossil fuel combustion technologies, including higher efficiency, lower emissions, and greater flexibility in terms of fuel sources. As a result, fuel cells are increasingly being adopted in a wide range of applications, including electric vehicles, backup power systems, and distributed power generation. To meet the growing demand for fuel cells, there is a corresponding need for a reliable and efficient source of hydrogen. PEM water electrolyzers are one of the most promising technologies for producing hydrogen. They are highly efficient, scalable, and can be powered by renewable energy sources such as solar and wind.
For instance, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are gaining popularity in the transportation sector as a zero-emission alternative to traditional gasoline and diesel vehicles. PEM water electrolyzers can produce hydrogen on-site at fueling stations, enabling the deployment of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles without relying on centralized production and transportation of hydrogen. In the stationary power sector, fuel cells are being adopted for backup power systems and distributed power generation in remote or off-grid locations. PEM water electrolyzers can be used to produce hydrogen on-site, enabling the deployment of fuel cells in locations where it may not be practical or cost-effective to transport hydrogen.
Thus, the increasing adoption of fuel cells in a wide range of applications is expected to provide significant opportunities for the PEM water electrolyzer market in the coming years, particularly as the demand for renewable energy sources grows.
