About Defense Fuel Cells

A fuel cell is a device that generates electricity through an electrochemical reaction, in which chemical energy gets converted to electrical energy. It consists of many individual fuel cells that are stacked together. Each fuel cell comprises two electrodes - a positively charged anode and a negatively charged cathode, which are separated by a fluid electrolyte. The electrolyte helps in speeding up the electrolysis process as it carries electrically charged particles from one electrode to the other.

The analysts forecast the global defense fuel cells market to grow at a CAGR of 8.80% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: - Global Defense Fuel Cells Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global defense fuel cells market: Protonex, Ultracell, Neah Power Systems, General Motors, and SFC Energy.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: WATT Fuel Cell Corporation, Bloom Energy, Altergy, Delphi Automotive, and Direct Methanol Fuel Cell Corporation.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in the market is adoption of fuel cells to decrease dependency on imported oil. Fuel cell chemistries, such as lithium-oxygen and microbial fuel cells, are gradually gaining traction and ensure high energy density levels comparable to fossil fuels. These characteristics make them ideal for robust transportation-related energy requirements. Since fuel cells are actively used in military transportation, research activities may be initiated for short to mid-term needs.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is improved performance with high torque and low revolutions. Despite the limited availability of infrastructure for fuel cells compared to fossil-fuel powered drivetrains, fuel cells project a higher efficiency of about 60% to 80%. As conventional vehicles do not carry out complete fuel combustion, the efficiency of the vehicle drops compared to the conventional IC engine. The diesel engine utilizes the fuel present in the vehicle to generate torque, leading to a lower number of revolutions compared to those vehicles that operate on fuel cell technology.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is limited hydrogen storage options. Hydrogen is considered as one of the most convenient alternatives by energy experts around the globe. However, the much-awaited hydrogen economy comes with its share of limitations such as storage of the gas and high initial cost of utilities. A few ways of addressing the storage challenge include the use of production-on-demand hydrogen technology and an increase in its generation. A team of chemists at the University of Rochester developed a technology that can increase hydrogen production through light-induced hydrogen production systems.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
