Forecast Summary

The number of hydrogen vehicles in service globally will exceed 1 million in 2027, from just over 60,000 in 2022 – a substantial growth of over 1,500%.
  • Hydrogen vehicles are an increasingly viable alternative to BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicles). The potential for enhanced range and rapid refuelling compares favourably with BEVs; reducing customer anxieties around BEV ownership. These positives have led to significant investment by car manufacturers, including Hyundai, Toyota and BMW, and this will translate into an increasingly popular and available product over the next five years.
  • The consumer market will lead the hydrogen vehicles space, with consumer vehicles accounting for over 60% of hydrogen vehicles in service globally in 2027. The nascent development stage of many commercial vehicle types and the high average cost of hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles, at over $70,000 globally in 2022, are key factors limiting adoption.
  • Additionally, the low availability of fuelling infrastructure is a key challenge for wider adoption, but heavy industry investment is key to reducing this concern over the next five years. Infrastructure vendors must provide ‘green’ hydrogen, produced using renewable energy sources, to best take advantage of concerns around the environment driving the adoption of alternative fuels.
