Fuel Cell Market Report, published by Allied Market Research, forecasts that the global market is expected to garner $8,643 Million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 17.36% during the period 2016 - 2022. In 2015, the proton exchange membrane fuel cells occupied two-fifths of the total share by volume.

Access Full Summary

Strict governmental regulations, increase in distributed power systems, and high efficiency of fuel cells are the major driving forces that will escalate the demand for fuel cells with applications in automation and powergenerationset ups. Unlike conventional power generation sources, fuel cells do not emit hazardous gases and pollution that is harmful to the environment.

Also, depletion of natural resources, carbon emissions, and rising cost of fossil fuels is paving the way for alternate means of transportation and power generation. Therefore, both public and private sectors have taken continuous efforts to reduce carbon emissions and save fuel.

Strict government regulations related to CO2 & SO2 emissions is driving the fuel cell market. In addition, the Go Green revolution is also driving the growth of the market.

Stringent government regulations related to carbon emissions are expected to propel the growth of the fuel cell market during the forecast period. Furthermore, stationary fuel cells can be used as a means of distributed power generation, which offers various advantages.

Power is generated near the consumer area and so the loss of energy in transmission is extremely small in comparison with the losses seen in large and centralized generation systems.
