U.S. fuel cell market size, by product, 2014 - 2024 (Units)

The fuel cell market can be segregated on the basis of product, application, and region. Based on product, the market can be categorized into SOFC, PAFC, MCFC, PEMFC, and others. Molten carbonate fuel cells (MCFCs) segment is estimated to dominate the market and account for highest market share. These kind of fuel cells can be used in coal and natural gas based power plants. Cost of such fuel cells is expected to be low owing to absence of precious metals. Low durability of MCFCs attributed to corrosion can be considered as major disadvantage. However, growing adoption of MCFCs in numerous end-use sectors and increasing investments can drive demand in coming years.

Similarly, continual technological advancements by manufacturing companies to reduce cost of fuel cell electrical vehicles (FCEVs) can augment growth. In addition, growing production of hydrogen storage tanks can reduce cost of FCEVs.

In 2016, proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) segment contributed for highest global market share. Increase use of such fuel cells in numerous sectors including telecommunications, automobiles, primary systems, and data centers can fuel growth.

Moreover, solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) segment is estimated to grow at CAGR of 39.3% over the forecast period in United States (U.S.) region. Growing demand from power and heat generation sectors can augment growth of segment in coming years.
