Government initiatives toward development of hydrogen energy
Ongoing investments in research and development coupled with continuous technological advancements towards development of clean power solutions will augment the fuel cell market in North America. Shifting inclination for the adoption of portable electricity supply and growing electricity consumption will positively influence the business outlook. However, introduction of government as well as private funding programs to promote the development of sustainable and efficient fuel cell technologies will stimulate the fuel cell demand.
Increasing awareness toward efficient utilization of renewable power mix along with stringent government mandates to reduce carbon emission will complement the stationary fuel cell market growth. Wide applicability of stationary fuel cells for backup power combined with their reliable operation and flexible installation will propel the product adoption. Moreover, rapid replacement of conventional sources in line with the development of sustainable fuel cell technologies will drive the industry trends.
Increasing strategic government measures towards the expansion of fuel cell infrastructure
U.S. fuel cell industry is predicted to surpass USD 2 billion by 2030. Ongoing government incentives & funding programs for the development of hydrogen fuel networks will stimulate the business dynamics. For instance, in July 2021, U.S. DOE announced to invest USD 52.5 million in several projects to develop clean hydrogen generation technologies. This will decrease the cost while accelerating revolutions in the clean hydrogen sector. These 31 projects will ensure better hydrogen production, storage systems, distribution as well as utilization technologies, thus thrusting the way toward decarbonization of the power sector by 2035.
Surging demand to adopt efficient electricity generation resources
The pandemic outbreak has marginally impacted the fuel cell market impelled by the implementation of lockdown and movement restrictions. However, after the decrease in the number of cases with restarting of industrial and manufacturing units to regain the economic growth will foster market statistics. Ongoing vaccination drives to curb the spread of the virus will further sway the industrial workflow. Furthermore, the increasing focus toward adoption of renewable solutions for power generation will spur the industry.
Strategic implication including partnerships & collaboration
Strategic implication including partnerships, agreements and innovations by key players to strengthen the product portfolio will boost the industry landscape. For instance, in July 2021, Cummins enhanced its expertise in advancing fuel cell technology by introducing Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs), a reliable source of clean energy, and offering electrolyzers and Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM). SOFCs produce lower levels of carbon dioxide as compared to other conventional generators.
