Stationary Fuel Cell Market size is anticipated to surpass USD 4.4 billion by 2030, as reported in the latest study by Global Market Insights Inc.
Rapid product adoption to replace grid electricity for on-site, dedicated, and premium-power generation at critical load facilities is set to drive the stationary fuel cell industry outlook. The systems pose a variety of benefits including reduced waste heat, less noise, along with grid stability.
Growing penetration of < 3 kW and 3 kW – 10 kW in some European countries will eliminate the susceptibility of grid dependency and boost the availability of power, thereby fostering the stationary fuel cell market statistics. Development of hydrogen roadmaps, laws and mandates coupled with increasing financial programs & incentives is supporting the demand for fuel cells.
Commercial systems accounted for more than 28% of the market share in 2021. Increasing installation of fuel cells primarily in small & large commercial spaces comprising defense or security communications facilities, high-volume financial processing centers, air traffic control centers, and remote campus places among others is projected to positively impact the business scenario. Ability to enhance the grid reliability in line with on-site power generation will augment grid electricity, thereby making it available for other demands in grid-deficit areas will increase the market demand. Stationary fuel cells have emerged as a reliable and efficient alternative over conventional power systems eliminating security vulnerability will propel the product penetration.
