According to a new study by Information Trends, the number of hydrogen stations deployed globally has exceeded 1,000. China leads this list, accounting for about a third of the global deployment, while the US has fewer than 100 hydrogen stations.

The study, Global Market for Hydrogen Fueling Stations 2023, also reveals that the second largest deployment of hydrogen fueling stations, after China, is in Japan, followed by Korea. According to Shakeel Ahmed, a senior analyst at Information Trends, other Asia-Pacific countries with aggressive plans for hydrogen station deployment include Australia, New Zealand and India.

So far, Germany is the only European country with more than 100 hydrogen stations installed, according to the study. Other countries in the old continent that are aggressively deploying hydrogen stations include France, the United Kingdom, Slovenia, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Spain.

According to the study, Europe is increasing its hydrogen fuel cell ecosystem and there have also been limited deployments of hydrogen stations in the Middle East and Africa. Including deployments in the latter territory, a total of 30 countries in the region have deployed hydrogen stations.

Most of the hydrogen stations implemented so far were designed for hydrogen fuel cell passenger vehicles, Ahmed said. “However, we are seeing an acceleration in the deployment of hydrogen stations for commercial vehicles, as well as for locomotives and maritime vessels,” the analyst explained.
