Captive hydrogen production: By mode of delivery & generation

When hydrogen is generated at the point of consumption, it is known as on-site generation. If hydrogen is not generated on-site, it is produced using a centralized plant and then delivered with the help of various delivery methods such as pipeline, cylinders, and trailers. Usually, merchant producers cater to customers with small scale hydrogen requirements. However, a small number of customers in the same segment prefer to buy hydrogen generation plants instead of buying from a third party. It is very difficult to segregate these customers and hence, all small on-site production is clubbed under merchant section. The merchant production market is growing at a CAGR of 9.6% whereas, the captive production market is growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2014 to 2019.
