Hydrogen-induced reactions provide essential information on nuclear structure, complementary to other experimental probes. For studies at both low and relativistic incident energy, developments in hydrogen targets have been performed over the past 10 years in parallel with the development of new radioactive beams. We present a review of all major hydrogen target developments related to the study of exotic nuclei with direct reactions in inverse kinematics. Both polarized and non-polarized systems are presented.
