Fuel Cell Market: Global Industry Trends, Size, Share, Growth, Opportunities and Forecast 2021-2026

Market Overview:

The global fuel cell market reached a value of US$ 5.9 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 20% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor. 

A fuel cell refers to an electrochemical cell which converts the chemical energy from a fuel to electricity. The major components of a fuel cell include anode, cathode and electrolyte. Some of the advantages offered by fuel cells are energy-efficiency, high operating time, ease of maintenance, etc. Apart from this, they are environment-friendly in nature as they prevent production of air pollutants or greenhouse gases. Owing to this, they are used to provide power to vehicles like forklifts, automobiles, buses, boats, motorcycles, etc.

Various initiatives and favourable policies by governments supporting the use of sustainable energy substitutes represents one of the major factors catalysing the growth of the global fuel cell market. Moreover, as fuel cells do not require conventional fuels such as oil or gas, it reduces economic dependence on oil producing countries, thereby broadening the growth prospects of the market. Other growth inducing factors include technological advancements, constant depletion of fossil fuels and rising awareness about the benefits of fuel cells.
