Fuel Cell Market in North America 2015-2019

About Fuel Cells

Fuel cells convert chemical energy into electrical energy through an electromechanical reaction. They are similar to batteries. A fuel cell consists of two electrodes, anode (positive) and cathode (negative), and an electrolyte that carry electrically charged elements from one electrode to another. A catalyst is required in the fuel cell, which speeds up the reaction taking place in the electrodes. Fuel cells create little pollution, because they use hydrogen as fuel. The hydrogen combines with oxygen to form water, which is a harmless by-product. This pollution reduction is one of the major reasons for the increased growth of the Fuel Cell Market in North America . Various fuels that can be used in a fuel cell are methanol, biogas, hydrogen, natural gas, and hydrocarbons.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Fuel Cell Market in North America to grow at a CAGR of 33.14 percent in terms of unit shipment and at 38.59 percent in terms of MW shipment over the period 2014-2019.
