FUEL CELL TECHNOLOGY MARKET SHARE, BY GEOGRAPHY, 2012

Fuel Cell Technology Market

Source: MarketsandMarkets Analysis

Ballard (Canada), Ceramic Fuel Cell (Australia), FuelCell Energy (U.S.), Hydrogenics , PlugPower (U.S.), SFC Energy(Germany) are the major players constituting almost 58% of the total market for fuel cell technology while the rest 42% is shared by all the remaining companies.

Most of these companies mainly relied on growth strategies such as agreements and contracts, joint ventures and collaborations, mergers and acquisitions, and expansions in diversified geographic areas. The growing demand for technologically advanced clean energy solutions has prompted most of the companies to launch highly innovative and integrated fuel cell solutions.

The companies involved in fuel cell business are thus expanding into emerging markets such as South America and Africa. Agreements, collaborations & partnerships are the key strategies that are helping the companies to penetrate the existing market, and expansion into the new and emerging markets. Asia has the largest market of stationary fuel cells due to the increase in household applications. South Africa, Asia and China represent the major potential for fuel cell market due to its portable and off grid applications.

Major fuel type/technologies include Polymer/Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cell, Direct Methanol Fuel Cell, and Phosphoric Acid Fuel Cell, Solid Oxide Fuel Cell, Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell and others. Polymer/Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cell are the largest type in terms of revenue generating more than half of the revenue. The major primary fuel source for fuel cells is Hydrogen.
