Global commercial fuel cell product and service demand will more than triple by 2015, and claim nearly half of all fuel cell spending (including R&D funding and investment) by 2020. Electric power generation will remain the largest application through 2015, while portable electronics and other uses will grow the fastest.
This study analyzes the $780 million world fuel cell industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., systems, fuels, electronic devices), chemistry (e.g., proton-exchange membrane, solid-oxide, molten carbonate, phosphoric acid), application (e.g., electric power generation, motor vehicles, industrial stationary and motive power, portable electronics), world region and for 15 countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 37 major players, including Panasonic, UTC Power and FuelCell Energy.
