Global Automotive Fuel Cell Industry to Reach over 10, 850 units by 2024
Posted by Marketoverview on February 1st, 2018
The global Automotive Fuel Cell Market was estimated over 5, 000 units in 2015. It would grow at a CAGR of nearly 13% in the forecast period (2016-2024). The market can reach over 10, 850 units by 2024. Expansion across fuel cell vehicles or FCVs owing to pollution-awareness will drive the industry in the near future.
FCVs or fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) run primarily on hydrogen. About 80 million tons of hydrogen are generated each year to cater to the demand for hydrogen fuel cells in FCEVs. Hydrogen infrastructural developments are the key market propeller.
In 2015, the transportation sector largely contributed to carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S., adding to the greenhouse gas problem. The use of FCEVs may curb pollution. A fuel cell contains electrodes. It converts chemical energy into electrical through electromechanical reactions. Electrolytes move electrically-charged elements from one electrode to another, speeding-up chemical reactions in cells.
Biogas, natural gas, and other alternatives are used in fuel cells. This aids in reducing & eliminating noise & air pollution, as hydrogen in combination with oxygen, creates water. FCEVs are free of combustion during energy production.

Low corrosion and lack of ‘high operation temperature’ owing to the absence of combustion are likely to boost the longevity of vehicles. This coupled with their lower maintenance costs can add industry growth. Research & development (R & D) activities should create business opportunities, leading to more employments.
High costs of automotive fuel cells are predicted to hamper the industry. Moreover, lack of technological advancements can hinder the industry. The Automotive Fuel Cell Market is split into applications and regions.
Applications include light-duty vehicles and materials handling. The former accounted for over 50% of the worldwide consumption in 2015. It will also dominate during the next eight years.Top Searches - Trending Searches - New Articles - Top Articles - Trending Articles - Featured Articles - Top Members
