Automotive Fuel Cell Market Segmentation

The global Automotive fuel cell market is segmentally divided into different segments such as fuel type, components, electrolyte type,

Depending on the fuel type segment, the current market has been segmented into methanol, hydrogen and others. The methanol fuel cells are easily available, involve lesser costs, generate low power, and are easy to transport. The hydrogen-powered cells are basically small in size and able to produce high power. In terms of the electrolyte type segment, the global market has been segmented into PAFC (Phosphoric Acid Fuel Cell) and PEMFC (Proton-exchange membrane fuel cell). Among these, the PEMFC electrolyte is widely preferred across the world because it helps in reducing greenhouse gases and produces near-zero-emissions. Apart from these, this type of electrolyte has many advantages that include being easy to install, lightweight, having a high-power density, highly portable, highly efficient, and used in varying operating temperatures.

Based on the component segment, the global Automotive fuel cell market has been classified into fuel stack, fuel processor, and power conditioner. Out of all, the power conditioner is extensively preferred because it has the capacity to produce constant power. In contrast, the fuel processor needs constant routine maintenance and monitoring. In terms of the power output segment, the worldwide market has been divided into <100KW, 100-200 KW, and >200 KW. Among these, the 100-200 KW output gives the highest output at the best price. On the basis of vehicle type segment, the global market has been segregated into heavy commercial vehicles (HCV), light commercial vehicles (LCV), and passenger vehicles (PV).
