Electrolyser Leaderboard and Manufacturing Insights Q1 2024

The looming consolidation in landscape, cancellations/ shut-down of factories and emergence of few dominant players

This report provides critical insights into the fast-changing landscape of Electrolyser OEMs (ELY) and how it is expected to evolve towards 2030 in terms of technology, geography, business model, concentration, etc. Further, the report investigates the manufacturing capacity & utilization trends of OEMs and provides commentary on potential demand-supply scenarios incl. whether there is really an oversupply problem.

Key Takeaways

  • There are 170+ players currently active in Electrolyser landscape with 206 positions spread across different ELY technologies. Highest concentration is in Europe and China.
  • Contrary to the popular belief, our findings suggest Chinese players working actively on PEM, SOEC and AEM technologies to challenge Western dominance.
  • Current installed capacity is highly concentrated among top 15 players which we have classified as market Leaders and Challengers. Out of the remaining 150+ players, there are 25+ players who can emerge as leaders/ challengers in coming years
  • There are seven major trends that will significantly impact the landscape towards 2030
  • The operational and under-construction capacity for Electrolyser stacks currently stands at ~50 GW out of which 23 GW is with Leaders and Challengers. China accounts for nearly 50% of the capacity followed by Europe.
  • Beyond the 50 GW, the electrolyser OEMs have announced ~64 GW capacity towards 2030.
  • There is an industry-wide over-supply but the picture is very different at player level. The rationale: All Supply is not Equal. For example, thyssenkrupp nucera is likely running above 80% utilization (through De Nora).
Many more insights by player, technology, geography can be found in the report.
