We study Higgs boson production in exclusive jet bins at possible future 33 and 100 TeV proton-proton colliders. We compare the cross sections obtained using fixed-order perturbation theory with those obtained by also resumming large logarithms induced by the jet-binning in the gluon-fusion and associated production channels. The central values obtained by the best-available fixed-order predictions differ by 10%-20% from those obtained after including resummation over the majority of phase-space regions considered. Additionally, including the resummation dramatically reduces the residual scale variation in these regions, often by a factor of two or more. We further show that in several new kinematic regimes that can be explored at these high-energy machines, the inclusion of resummation improvement is mandatory.
