概要

Stratistics MRCによると、世界の水蒸気メタン改質水素生成市場は2023年に1,438億米ドルを占め、予測期間中にCAGR 8.1%で成長し、2030年には2,480億米ドルに達する見込みです。

水蒸気メタン改質水素生成市場は、水蒸気メタン改質(SMR)プロセスによる水素生成に焦点を当てた産業を指します。この方法では、高温でメタンを水蒸気と反応させて水素、一酸化炭素、二酸化炭素を生成します。SMR技術は、天然ガスを原料として大規模な水素製造に広く採用されています。

IEA 2019によると、日本と中国は水素開発の可能性が最も高い最大のLNG輸入国です。

高まる水素需要

低炭素経済への移行において水素が重要な役割を果たすようになり、輸送、製造、エネルギーの各業界で、大規模水素製造のためのSMR技術への依存度が高まっています。需要の急増は、クリーン・エネルギー・キャリアとしての水素の多用途性と、多様な分野での応用に後押しされています。国や産業界が排出削減目標の達成や環境規制の遵守に努める中、水素の重要性は高まり続けており、SMRはその効率性と拡張性から、水素製造に適した方法として位置づけられています。

高い初期資本コスト

大規模なSMRインフラを確立するには、改質器や関連設備の建設、既存設備の適合に多額の初期投資が必要となります。このような初期資本投資の経済的負担は、特に代替水素製造技術と比較して、潜在的な投資家や業界関係者にとっての抑止力になり得る。世界的に産業界と政府がよりクリーンなエネルギー源への移行を模索している中、SMRプロジェクトに必要とされる多額の初期資本支出は、その経済的実行可能性を妨げ、市場の成長を減速させる可能性があります。

技術の進歩

SMR技術の絶え間ない革新と改善は、水素製造プロセスの効率、信頼性、環境性能を高める上で重要な役割を果たします。高度な触媒開発、プロセスの最適化、斬新なエンジニアリング・ソリューションなどのイノベーションは、SMRをよりコスト効率が高く、環境的に持続可能なものにするのに貢献しています。さらに、業界が発展するにつれて、継続的な研究開発の努力は、既存のSMRプロセスを最適化するだけでなく、再生可能エネルギー源を水素製造に統合する道を開く画期的な進歩をもたらし、よりクリーンで持続可能なエネルギー環境という広範な目標に合致しています。

エネルギー集約度と効率への懸念

SMRプロセスは、高温で作動し、多大なエネルギー投入を必要とするため、代替の水素製造方法と比較して、全体的な効率について懸念が生じる。SMRのエネルギー集約的な性質は、運転コストの一因となるだけでなく、エネルギー効率と持続可能な慣行がますます重視されるようになっていることと相反します。業界が二酸化炭素排出量を最小限に抑えようと努力する中、天然ガスを水素に変換するSMRの効率が相対的に低いことが制限要因となり、進化するクリーンエネルギー技術の情勢におけるSMRの魅力に影響を与える可能性があります。

COVID-19の影響:

世界の景気後退は産業活動の縮小を招き、製造業や運輸業など様々な分野の水素需要に影響を与えました。サプライチェーンの混乱、労働力不足、移動の制限も、新しいSMR施設の建設と試運転に影響を与え、プロジェクトの遅れにつながった。しかし、エネルギー市場を取り巻く不確実性と産業界による資本支出の減少は、SMR技術を利用したものを含む大規模水素製造プロジェクトへの投資を制約しました。
