Driving Factors

The increase of the government’s attention to the usage of electric vehicles due to the increase in carbon emissions is a major growing factor in the global hydrogen fuel cell market. Furthermore, manufacturers of electric vehicles are focusing on the production of electric vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cells to reduce carbon emissions and carbon footprints. The ability to scale up hydrogen fuel cells to create fuel cell stacks, that are subsequently joined to create larger systems, constitutes one of their primary characteristics. For instance, such structures include electric cars, cellphone charging devices on the go, and massive installations with multiple megawatts of power feeding straight into the electric system. Because of the detrimental gas emissions caused by the overuse of fossil fuels, there are now ecological issues. The global hydrogen fuel cell market's demand is being driven by the desire to lessen reliance on diesel and oil.

 

Restraining Factors

The global hydrogen fuel cell market is impeded by the high cost of the process of switching to this technology and the presence of the hydrogen fuel cell refilling station. Fuel cell limitations include the inability to store hydrogen for extended periods in vehicles due to weight, volume, efficiency, safety, and cost considerations. Hydrogen storage facilities are not able to achieve the same range as traditional petroleum-fueled vehicles due to their large weight and volume. Furthermore, the endurance of hydrogen systems is restricted, necessitating the development of substances and components that enable hydrogen storage systems with a 1,300 to 1,800-cycle lifespan.

 

Market Segmentation

The Global Hydrogen Fuel Cell Market share is classified into type, technology, application

  • The liquid-cooled segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global hydrogen fuel cell market during the forecast period.   

Based on the type, the global hydrogen fuel cell market is divided into liquid-cooled, and air-cooled. Among these, the liquid-cooled segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global hydrogen fuel cell market during the forecast period. This is because the liquid coolant allows the cell fuel stack to operate at a higher temperature for a longer period than the other cooling methods.

 

  • The SOFC segment is expected to hold the greatest share of the global hydrogen fuel cell market during the forecast period.    

Based on the technology, the global hydrogen fuel cell market is divided into PEMFC, SOFC, PAFC, MFC, DMFC, AFC, and others. Among these, the SOFC segment is expected to hold the greatest share of the global hydrogen fuel cell market during the forecast period. This is because SOFC (solid oxide fuel cells) have a compact design, which necessitates a shorter starting time a vital consideration in stable electrical power applications. Because of its straightforward design, this SOFC segment is the most widely utilized in the global hydrogen fuel cell market.

 

  • The transport segment is expected to grow at the greatest pace in the global hydrogen fuel cell market during the forecast period.

Based on the application, the global hydrogen fuel cell market is divided into transport, stationary, portable, and others. Among these, the transport segment is expected to grow at the greatest pace in the global hydrogen fuel cell market during the forecast period. The global trend has shifted steadily in the direction of green transportation. Several countries are making investments to create an environment free of emissions, which is increasing the growth of the transportation segment in the global hydrogen fuel cell market.
