Japan is the first country to adopt a national "Basic Hydrogen Strategy" and aims to establish itself as a "hydrogen society". According to a 2019 study by market research firm Fuji Keizai, the hydrogen market in Japan is expected to grow 56-fold to JPY 408.5 billion by 2030. At FC EXPO in Tokyo, which will be held March 15-17, 2023, professionals from around the world will find technologies for the production, transportation, storage and use of hydrogen under one roof.
For NRW companies with an interest in the Japanese hydrogen market, there are many opportunities here to expand business relationships and networks. NRW.Global Business is therefore participating at the FC EXPO with a joint company stand as part of the German Pavilion as well as an NRW-Japan Location and Business Symposium. Companies should now take the opportunity to secure a place at the joint stand and present their products or services in the best possible way in Japan.
For all those who would like to get to know the Japanese market on an even larger scale, NRW.Global Business is also offering a a company trip together with the City of Essen and NRW.Energy4Climate. In addition to a visit to the FC EXPO, the trip to Japan includes a supporting program with visits to companies and institutes in the hydrogen economy in Japan as well as participation in a location and business symposium.
