Research and Markets Adds Report on Global Fuel Cell Technology

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Fuel Cell Technology Market Report 2013-2018" report to their offering.

The global fuel cell market revenue is estimated to reach $2.5 billion by 2018. The unit shipments of fuel cells will increase by over fourteen fold from 78,100 in 2012 to 1,127,560 by 2018. Major factors responsible for the growth of fuel cell market include the ability of fuel cells in stationary, portable and transportation applications as a source of off grid power source, zero emission and clean energy source and continuous depletion of existing oil reserves makes. The key concerns in the industry pertain to the high cost of catalyst, commercialization of fuel cells and establishment of fuel cell infrastructure.

This report segments the global fuel cell market firstly on the basis of its applications such as portable, transportation and stationary applications. Secondly, it is segmented on the basis of technology such as Polymer/Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cell, Direct Methanol Fuel Cell, Phosphoric Acid Fuel Cell, Solid Oxide Fuel Cell, Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell and others. Then the market is segmented according to primary fuel sources such as Hydrogen, Natural Gas/ Methane, Methanol, and Anaerobic Digester Gas. Lastly, the market is segmented on the basis of geography such as North America, Europe, Asia, and Rest of World. Each region has been analyzed with respect to its market trends, growth, and future prospective of the fuel cell market.
