A market report recently published by news agency Bloomberg concludes we’re well on our way to a hydrogen revolution. I’d call it a megatrend. The report’s authors expect USD 2.5 trillion, that is, USD 2,500 billion, will pour into the hydrogen and fuel cell sector by 2050. The International Energy Agency agrees. Between 2018 and 2020, an estimated USD 1.5 billion per year went into developing the market, a figure said to climb to USD 38 billion by 2040. By 2050, investments will reportedly grow to USD 181 billion – again, per year. All these forecasts are based on targets already set by countries, global organizations and companies themselves.

Any company that has a good positioning strategy and, thanks to its technology and business model, is able to deliver convincing solutions is sure to experience above-average growth in the near future and generate high revenues in the long run. That, in turn, will have a positive influence on its stock and the market in general, as stock prices reflect everything that has or can have an impact on business.

In fact, the bottom seems to have been reached already. Prices are again on the up, albeit from a low base. The hefty drop could partly be the result of hedge funds, short sellers and other traders’ attempts to bring hydrogen and fuel cell shares to their knees.
