The technology of converting chemical energy into electrical energy through electromechanical reaction is used in fuel cells, performing functions like an engine for converting fuel into electricity without burning it. Fuel cells are differentiated on the basis of the components used and the type of reaction taking place within the cell. Fuels required by them include hydrogen, methanol, biogas, natural gas, and hydrocarbons. When working with hydrogen, fuel cell generates water as an outcome and generates electricity with zero emission. The growing environmental concerns and rise in demand for clean energy are propelling the growth of fuel cells. Europe is at the forefront of this technology with EU funding such ventures and European companies developing more efficient fuel cell systems.

The European fuel cell market is segmented on the basis of applications, types, primary fuel sources, and countries. The data is analyzed over a period of 2011 to 2018. The quantitative data regarding all the above segmentations is given in terms of value ($million).

The European fuel cell market revenue is estimated to reach $613.7 million by 2018. The unit shipments of fuel cells are expected to increase from 3,776 units in 2012 to 338,727 units by 2018. Stationary applications are rising as they are very efficient sources of off grid power. With Europe’s target of reducing the carbon footprint by 80%, fuel cells offer a great alternative with zero emission and clean energy source due to which it is experiencing a high demand. Commercialization of fuel cells and establishment of fuel cell infrastructure are challenging from Europe’s point of view.

The report covers major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, winning imperatives, and key burning issues of the fuel cell market. Key players in the industry such as AFC Energy (U.K.), Heliocentris (Germany), Topsoe (Denmark), Genport SRL (Italy), SFC Energy (Germany), and Ceres Power (U.K.) are profiled in detail.

Fuel Cell Technology is a clean energy source getting commercialized widely for its applications. The fuel cell industry has been growing at a promising growth rate in past few years. The technological developments and growing commercialization have fuelled the demand for fuel cells. This growing demand of fuel cells has been positively affecting the development of hydrogen infrastructure globally. The stationary units used for telecommunication and household purposes are primarily designed keeping in mind the cost. The primary fuel source is a major aspect of the fuel cells as its availability affects the use of fuel cells.

European fuel cell market is witnessing decent growth based on increased clean energy demand and large investments related to hydrogen infrastructure development, especially in Germany and U.K. Germany holds the major market share followed by U.K. and Rest of Europe. In terms of applications of the fuel cell, the market is dominated by stationary applications due to the off grid applications and household applications.
