Market Insights: Hydrogen - 2022

This report provides a comprehensive review of the global hydrogen market, including various sources of hydrogen supply and demand in refining, steel, industrial heat, passenger vehicles, road freight, aviation, rail, space heating, ammonia, methanol and other.Market Insights: Hydrogen - 2022 includes a market review and outlook to 2035 for each key region:  North America, South America, Western and Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East, China and Other Asia Pacific.  The report also discusses viable pathways for hydrogen production, along with hydrogen production costs, levelized costs of hydrogen (LCOH) and pricing.Market drivers, key challenges, and potential barriers are reviewed and evaluated including regulatory framework and policies for stimulating overall hydrogen demand. Hydrogen pricing is reviewed and a comparative costs analysis of the main colours of hydrogen (e.g., grey, blue, and green) is performed.AbstractFor achieving “net-zero” emissions by 2050 to constrain the global temperature rise to 1.5 to 2.0 degrees Celsius (°C), negligible or minimal (low) carbon hydrogen is receiving much attention.  Hydrogen is typically used in the chemical industry for several important products such as ammonia, methanol, cyclohexane, hydrogen peroxide, aniline, and oxo alcohols, amongst others.  Hydrogen is also used in the refining sector to reduce the sulfur content of certain fuel streams as well as in many other industries.  In recent years, there is a growing emphasis on adopting hydrogen as an “energy carrier” in fuel cell applications which would open a potentially large new market.  Different types of hydrogen are defined based on a colour palette classifying hydrogen based on its potential environmental footprint and resulting impact.

Market Insights: Recycled Polyolefins - 2021

This report provides analysis and forecast to 2035 of the global recycled polyolefins market, including supply by mechanical method and chemical processes and demand by product and end use.     Market Insights: Recycled Polyolefins - 2021 includes discussion regarding key market drivers and constraints, as well as demand analysis for nine regions: North America, South America, Western Europe, Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, and China.  Analysis also includes the competitive landscape, capacity listing and cost competitiveness along with a snapshot of latest pricing trends by region and price forecasts to 2035.Abstract:The EU tax of €800 per ton on virgin polymers used in packaging was introduced in January 2021. The EU tax will incentivise use of recycled material. From April 2022, the UK will introduce a similar plastic packaging tax of £200 per ton for packaging with less than 30% recycled content; however there will be an exemption for manufacturers and importers of less than 10 tons of plastic packaging per year. No other regions have yet followed.Plastics use in other applications has attracted no taxation so far. Use in personal protective equipment (PPE) somewhat redeemed the public perception of plastic during the COVID pandemic. Recent low oil prices have made recycling economics more challenging, and COVID-19 contamination concerns and labour restrictions have reduced collection and sorting capacity that is already structurally constrained.Limited availability of post consumer resin (PCR) is renewing interest in bio-feedstock and chemical process as a means to meet brand sustainability objectives.  There are around 50 technologies currently under development for the conversion of waste plastics to basic hydrocarbons, ranging from solvents/waxes to synthetic crudes, transportation fuels and importantly cracker feedstock.The applications for mechanically recycled polyolefins are limited due to deteriorated properties although it can be improved to a certain extent by use of compatibilizers and blending with virgin material. For example, use in food packaging is prohibited by the EFSA and FDA regulations but increasing demand is found in stretch film for industrial and agricultural uses etc. Recycled polyolefins use in non-standard applications such as plastic lumber and will not erode virgin demand.A combination of legislation, taxes, consumer pressure/brand owner response drives growth in recycled polyolefins, which also depends on competitive economics and efficiency in resource recovery and greenhouse gas emissions. Adoption of a circular model for the plastics value chain is expected to be gradual.
