Product Overview

Fuel Cell is referred to as a device consisting of a cathode and anode submersed in an electrolyte solution for generating proper electricity. Fuel Cells can be used as battery  that gives required power to the system and these usually work on easy electromechanical mechanism, which changes chemical energy into electrical energy. Fuel cells have many applications like residential, industrial, transportation, commercial structures. Fuel Cells use hydrogen-based fuel and it produces electricity through the chemical energy of hydrogen or other fuels in a clean and efficient manner.

Market Dynamics

Growth Drivers

Agreeable Regulatory Policies are Expected to Boost the Growth of the Market

Fuel cell systems utilization is being increased as it generates Combined Heat & Power for powering and heating households and commercial spaces like hospitals, hotels, educational centers etc. Different state and federal bodies have initiated beneficial legislative policies and subsidy projects to boost the combining of devices in various applications. Fuel cells can produce electricity directly from oxygen and hydrogen, therefore power generated does not cause emission of CO2 or harmful environmental pollutants.

Growing Demand for Generating Clean Energy is Expected to Boost the Growth of the Market

The rising concerns on carbon emissions from various sources is resulting in climatic change leading to the serious consequences on human health and environment. Solid Oxide Fuel Cells are used in different portable and fixed applications which boosts and diversifies energy infrastructure by giving a clean, reliable, and modern energy-efficient solution to reach the increasing demand of power. Increasing acceptance of zero-emission equipment and good fuel efficiency is anticipated to drive the demand for the growth of fuel cells for Combined Heat & Power application during the forecast period. 

Restraint

High Production Cost May Restrain the Growth of the Market

The high cost involved in producing and delivering hydrogen fuel to service stations along with the high catalyst cost which increases the fuel cell cost may hamper the growth of fuel cell market. The demand for electric vehicles due to their advantages and absence of fuel cell infrastructure may restrain the growth of the market.
