The technology used in fuel cell is the conversion of chemical energy into electrical energy through electromechanical reaction. The difference between a battery and a fuel cell is that in battery, fuel is available inside the packaging and in fuel cell, fuel is supplied from outside. Fuel cells are an alternate to internal combustion which is a mechanical process occurring in engine. Fuel cells can be made of different types based on the electrolyte used for the reaction in the cell. Fuels such as hydrogen, methanol, biogas, natural gas, and hydrocarbons are suitable for fuel cells; however, the preference of primary fuel also depends on the electrolyte. North America fuel cell market is the second-largest market for fuel cells in the world after Asia. North America provides favorable government policies, appropriate research works, good public private collaboration, and a strong infrastructure for fuel cells.

This report segments the North America fuel cell market by their applications, types, primary fuel used, and countries.
