Elaborate profiling of major market participants along with detailed analysis of the competitive scenario provides a comprehensive understanding of the global fuel cells market.

Fuel Cells – Higher Efficiency and Almost Zero Emissions

A fuel cell is a zero-emission source of power, and the only byproduct of a fuel cell is water. Some fuel cells use natural gas or hydrocarbons as fuel, but even those produce far less emissions than conventional sources. Therefore, they eliminate or at least vastly reduce the pollution and greenhouse gas emissions caused by burning fossil fuels, and since they are also quiet in operation, they also reduce noise pollution.
Fuel cells are more efficient than combustion engines as they generate electricity electrochemically and not by burning fossil fuels. Since they can produce electricity onsite, the waste heat produced can also be used for heating purposes. Most of the fuel cells today operate at 40-60% fuel-to-electricity efficiency. Additionally, when used in combination with turbine fuel cells they can operate at more than 60% fuel efficiency. For co-generation purposes the efficiency of fuel cells can exceed 85%.

PEM Fuel Cells are the Most Sought After Fuel Cells Followed by Solid Oxide Fuel Cells SOFC’s

Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells are the most sought-after fuel cells as they have many applications in the transportation sector. A large number of fuel cell companies and automobile companies across the world are involved in research to roll out a commercial fuel cell vehicle. Their operating temperatures are also favorable for application in this segment.

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) are applied in stationary applications and auxiliary power units. They have high operating temperatures which are suitable for these purposes. They are available in wide power ranges and have efficiencies of 45-55%.

Transportation Sector is the Most Sought After Application Segment for Fuel Cells

Fuel cells are the most promising clean technology that can be used to power transportation vehicles. Apart from meeting emissions legislation fuel cells are also required to reach operating temperature quickly. PEM fuel cells are best suited for this purpose because of their ability to operate at low temperatures and adjust quickly to changing load requirements. Fuel cells are used to power cars, buses, scooters, forklifts, auxiliary power units, trains, planes, and boats.
