Global Fuel Cell Market: By Type: Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC), Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells (MCFC), Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC), Phosphoric Acid Fuel Cells (PAFC); By Application; By End Use; Regional Analysis; Historical Market and Forecast (2016-2026); Competitive Landscape; Industry Events and Developments

Global Fuel Cell Market Outlook

The global fuel cell market is being aided by the growing stationary fuel cell shipments, which reached a volume of about 283 megawatts in 2020. The global demand for stationary fuel cell shipments is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 9% in the forecast period of 2021-2026.

 

Increasing Demand for Stationary Fuel Cells to Augment the Fuel Cell Industry Growth

Fuel cells can be used as stationary power units for primary power, backup power, or combined heat and power (CHP). Based on application, the stationary segment occupies a significant share in the industry. The increasing demand for stationary fuel cells can be attributed to their ability to power anything from a laptop to a single family home or even larger needs (200 kW and above), thus, becoming a versatile option for a wide range of markets like retail, residential, telecommunications, and others. This has significantly contributed to the growth of the fuel cell industry. Meanwhile, the transportation segment is expected to witness a significant growth in the forecast period owing to the increasing adoption of fuel cell powered forklifts and favourable government initiatives, particularly in developed economies.

 

The Asia Pacific to Provide Significant Growth Opportunities to the Fuel Cell Industry

Geographically, North America and Europe account for a significant share in the industry owing to the stringent environmental regulations and increased government investments to encourage the adoption of renewable energy sources across the regions. The United States is one of the largest global manufacturers of fuel cells and a leading global exporter. Meanwhile, the Asia Pacific is expected to witness a robust growth in the forecast period due to the increasing focus on reducing the economic dependence on fossil fuels, advances in fuel cell technology, and growing shift from the grid to clean, onsite power production.

 

Fuel Cell: Industry Definition and Segmentation

Fuel cells are the cells that generate electricity through a mechanism that does not involve combustion. These cells transform the chemical energy in a hydrogen-rich fuel to electricity through an electrolytic process. This means fuel cells produce relatively fewer pollutants compared to the conventional, combustion-based power generation technologies. Further, they are fuel flexible, highly efficient, and operate at very low noise levels. Thus, they serve as an efficient alternative to traditional power generation technologies, offering improved reliability and environmental benefits.

By type, the market is divided into:

  • Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC)
  • Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells (MCFC)
  • Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)
  • Phosphoric Acid Fuel Cells (PAFC)
  • Others

Based on application, the industry can be segmented into:

  • Stationary
  • Portable
  • Transport 
  • Others

On the basis of end use, the industry can be categorised into:

  • Fuel Cell Vehicles
  • Utilities
  • Defence
  • Others

The regional markets for the product include North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

 

Increasing Focus on Clean Energy Generation to Bolster the Growth of the Fuel Cell Industry

The global fuel cell industry is being driven by the increasing demand for clean energy sources across the globe. The rising environmental concern and the increasing global demand for energy are supporting the growth of the industry. Additionally, favourable government initiatives and advancements in fuel cell technologies, such as PEMFC, PAFC, and others, have further boosted the growth of the industry. Over the forecast period, the growing adoption of fuel cell-based vehicles and the thriving power sector are expected to significantly contribute to the industry growth.
