A Big Boost to the Fuel Cell Market as Industries Increasingly Adopt Renewable Energy Sources

A recent research report published by MarkNtel Advisors cites that the Global Fuel Cell Market is set to record a whopping 28% CAGR during 2022-27. Increasing environmental concerns over the rapidly rising levels of carbon emissions worldwide, coupled with stringent norms for various industries to reduce the use of fossil fuels, are escalating the need for renewable energy sources and, consequently, driving the fuel cell industry. 

Fuel cell technology exhibits several significant benefits, such as zero or fewer emissions, high efficiency & reliability, durability, as well as quiet operations, among others. As a result, governments of various countries are laying out favorable policies for companies to expand their production capacities and promoting people to use cleaner energy technologies, thereby augmenting the fuel cell market growth globally.

As more & more people are adopting green mobility in order to contribute to a sustainable future, the demand for fuel cells is rapidly burgeoning worldwide. Consequently, many fuel cell manufacturers are collaborating to expand their production capacities while also setting up new plants to cater to these ever-growing requirements for fuel cells in several applications, especially across the transportation & defense sectors and data centers. Hence, these aspects are set to promulgate the expansion of the global fuel cell market through 2027 and generate profitable prospects for manufacturers to yield significant profits.

Some Important Aspects Associated with the Fuel Cell Industry:

  • Of all types of fuel cells, viz., PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane), Direct Methanol, Phosphoric Acid, Solid Oxide, Molten Carbonate, Alkaline, & Reversible, PEM fuel cells are witnessing the highest demand mainly due to their higher energy density & durability, low weight & volume, less refueling time, & more life cycles than their counterparts.
  • The transportation application is highly opportunistic for the fuel cell market since it significantly contributes to carbon emissions. Automakers worldwide are showing active interest in adopting sustainable alternatives to fossil fuel-based vehicles and abiding by stringent government norms across different countries to curb carbon emissions.
  • SOFCs (Solid Oxide Fuel Cells) are witnessing a rapidly increasing demand across several operators of data centers that consume high power and require a continuous electricity supply to avoid the risks of data loss. Various military forces are also increasingly procuring SOFCs for stationary & portable applications to attain noiseless & efficient power generation.

Asia-Pacific to Attain the Largest Share in the Fuel Cell Market

China, Japan, & South Korea are the most prominent countries across Asia-Pacific that hold a promising future for the Fuel Cell Market. It owes to the thriving hydrogen market and favorable government norms & subsidies in these countries for developing clean energy sources & using fuel-cell-based vehicles, respectively, coupled with the mounting production of FCVs to bolster green mobility.

In addition, substantial investments by both governments and public & private sectors in developing renewable energy sources in order to mitigate climate change & reduce carbon emissions from various industries are other crucial aspects propelling the production of fuel cells across the region. Hence, these aspects are creating lucrative prospects for manufacturers to expand their production capacities and drive the Asia-Pacific Fuel Cell Market in the years to come.
