PEMFC cell deployment is set to reach 1.5 GW by 2026. Increasing demand for reliable and uninterrupted electricity supply across remote and off-grid areas along with growing sale for fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV’s) will augment the market demand.
 

These cells use a water-based acid polymer membrane as an electrolyte and platinum-based electrodes. It operates at a relatively low temperature and can provide electrical output to meet the dynamic power requirements. Light weight, high efficiency, excellent dynamic and high-power density are some of the key features which will boost the product demand.
 

Accelerating demand for portable power sources in military applications, forklifts, commercial warehouses, consumer electronics and movable battery chargers will propel the DMFC segment growth. DMFC uses polymer sheath as an electrolyte and platinum-ruthenium catalyst as an anode. The reaction between them separates hydrogen from liquid methanol and reduces the use of fuel reformer.  
 

High energy density, comparatively low cost and wide temperature range are some of the key features which will boost the product adoption.
 

Ongoing deployment of FCEV’s is propelling the fuel cell industry share across transport applications

Increasing adoption of fuel cell electric vehicles as an efficient alternative to conventional automobiles along with upsurge in investments toward research & development will propel the fuel cell across transport applications substantially. Wide use across light vehicles, ferries, forklifts, two & three vehicles, small boats, goods handling vehicles and trams will boost the market revenue.
 

As per the DOE there were 6,500 fuel cell vehicles across the U.S. in 2019 when compared with 4,000 in 2015. In addition, ongoing deployment of fuel cell in e-bikes, UAVs, and in numerous commercial vehicles will also complement the industry growth.
 

Increasing demand for electricity on account of rapid commercialization and industrial development will boost the stationary fuel cell market size. Upsurge in demand for space heating across residential establishments, hospitals, telecommunication base stations, data centers, schools, hotels and tetra networks will positively influence the product demand.
 

In addition, growing need for large scale multi-megawatt units to provide electricity to remote and off-grid areas will propel the business growth.
 

Asia Pacific region will dominate the regional market share owing to rapid development of hydrogen infrastructure
