Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells – ( Solar Thermal Magazine)
There is a new Global PEMFC Market (Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells) 2015-2019 research report analyses the solutions and products offered by PEMFC market vendors and presents a comprehensive breakdown on the basis of application, which includes stationary and portable technology, as well as the transportation segment.
This proton electrode membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) market report on global analysis and forecasts says huge amounts are being spent on R&D on PEMFCs. Many universities and governmental organizations are engaged in this research and in demonstration projects of such new technologies. PEMFC are devices that generate electricity through an electrochemical process involving oxidation of electrolytes placed between the anode and the cathode. Fuel cells are generally categorized based on the type of electrolyte used. PEMFC use an acidic water-based polymer membrane with platinum-based electrodes. It operates at low temperatures and caters effectively to dynamic power requirements. The chemical source of PEMFC, which is hydrogen, needs to be extremely pure because of its operating temperature and use of precious metal-based electrodes. PEMFC is a fuel-cell technology that is used extensively in light duty and material handling vehicles.
Analysts forecast global PEMFC market to grow at a CAGR of 26.67% in terms of unit shipment and at 19.74% in terms of MW shipment over the period 2014-2019. In addition, the report presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the five major vendors in the global PEMFC market.
