Annual U.S. production of hydrogen was an estimated REDACTED million metric tons (MMT) in 2017. World production the same year was about REDACTED MMT, which means that the U.S. accounted for almost 13% of total world output of hydrogen.

The largest energy-related application of hydrogen is in refining. The market drivers of petroleum processing demand for hydrogen are fuel emission standards, the increasing proportion of low-quality heavy sour crudes and growing demand for low sulfur diesel.

In addition, hydrogen can be burned as a fuel to perform work directly, or it can be converted into electricity using a fuel cell.At present, transportation applications consume a negligible portion of the world’s hydrogen production.

As of the end of 2017, there were only about 6,500 fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) in the world, with half of them in California. Projections vary, but the most realistic projections peg the number of FCVs on the road at around 70,000 in 2023, which could consume a total of 10,000 tons of hydrogen per year.

Hydrogen is also an important chemical intermediate.Production pathways can be direct, such as via methane steam reforming or electrolysis, or indirect, for example, as a byproduct of chlorine and caustic soda production.

Demand for hydrogen in ammonia production is the second-largest segment of the market after refining, followed by methanol production.
