Carbon Composite Hydrogen Tanks Market Size to Reach US$ 3.0 Billion in 2026, Says Stratvi..

Stratview Research 24-03-21

Stratview Research announces the launch of a new research report on Carbon Composite Hydrogen Tanks Market by Tank Type (Type III and Type IV), by Application Type (Transportation {Cars, Medium and Heavy Commercial Vehicles or MHCV, and Others}, Gas Storage & Distribution, and Others), by Process Type (Wet Winding and Dry Winding), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World), Size, Trend, Forecast, Competitive Analysis, and Growth Opportunity: 2021-2026.

This strategic assessment report, from Stratview Research, provides a comprehensive analysis that reflects today’s carbon composite hydrogen tanks market realities and future possibilities for the forecast period of 2021 to 2026. The report estimates the short- as well as long-term repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic on the demand for composite textiles at the global, regional, as well as country level. Also, the report provides the possible loss that the industry will endure by comparing pre-COVID and post-COVID scenarios. The vital data/information provided in the report can play a crucial role for market participants as well as investors in formulating short-term as well as long-term growth strategies.

Carbon Composite Hydrogen Tanks Market: Highlights from the Report

Hydrogen can be physically stored in gaseous form or liquid form. In gaseous form, hydrogen is stored in high-pressure tanks under 350-700 bar of working pressure. Carbon composite hydrogen tanks include type III and Type IV tanks, made by using carbon fiber. Type III tank has a metal liner (aluminum or steel) with a full-composite overwrap, whereas Type IV is a complete carbon fiber made tank having an inner liner made of polyamide or polyethylene plastic.

With rapidly increasing emissions from the transportation sector and other applications, economies across the globe are actively implementing stringent standards and mandates supporting environment preservation. The transportation sector generates a quarter of human-induced CO2 emissions. As the predicament becomes even more daunting, the focus is gradually shifting towards alternative technologies that rely less on fossil fuels, bringing electric vehicles into limelight.

E-mobility is at the juncture of bringing in a revolution in the automotive industry. Battery electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid vehicles, and fuel cell electric vehicles are gaining traction among customers with full tilt. During their entire lifecycle, FCEVs can reduce CO2 emissions by 30% as compared to conventional gasoline vehicles as they do not require large batteries whose production is energy and resource intensive. When it comes to fuel storage, FCEV manufacturers prefer composite pressure vessels (Type III and Type IV) over metallic ones for hydrogen storage.

Impact of COVID-19

The global EV production stood at 7 Million units in 2019 of which FCEVs accounted for <1% share. In 2020, the exponentially growing market faced an unforeseen hurdle – the COVID19 pandemic. Even though the market managed to dodge incurring any losses, it experienced softened growth in the dreadful year. Stratview Research’s estimates suggest that the carbon composite hydrogen tanks market is likely to pick up pace from 2021 onwards and ultimately cross the unprecedented landmark figure of US$ 3 Billion by 2026.

Based on the application type, the transportation segment is likely to hold dominance in the market throughout the study period, driven by the most sought-after FCEVs. Major fuel cell cars on the road incessantly adding momentum to the market are Toyota Mirai, Hyundai Nexo, and Honda Clarity. Despite the pandemic, the transportation carbon composite hydrogen tanks market was flooded with several contracts signed by Hexagon Composites ASA, ILJIN Composites, Plastic Omnium, and Luxfer Holdings PLC.

Based on the tank type, type IV tank is likely to hold the throne in the market till 2026, whereas type III tank is expected to grow at a faster rate in the next five years. The major markets for type IV are Japan and South Korea and for type III, China remains the leading market. The key advantages offered by type IV tanks are weight reduction, corrosion-free, fatigue resistance, high storage density, and low total cost of ownership.

None of the regions logged any decline in 2020 but recorded a slowdown in growth. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to hold the throne in the market till 2026, whereas Europe is likely to experience the highest growth in the market during the forecast period. All three major FC passenger vehicles including Toyota Mirai (Japan), Hyundai Nexo (South Korea), and Honda Clarity (Japan), are manufactured in the region. China, the largest truck producer, also has an avid focus on the development of fuel cell MHCVs. Ceaseless investments and development of several policies towards the adoption of clean energy are underway in Europe, cushioning the region’s impressive growth in the next few years.
