Defense Fuel Cell Market : Global Historical Growth (2012-2016) & Future Outlook (2017-2024) Demand Analysis & Opportunity Evaluation

Published On : 11:59 PM, 19th April, 2018 REP-ID-521 Category: Defence, Marine & Aerospace

Defense Fuel Cell Market Overview

A fuel cell is an electrochemical cell which uses chemical energy of hydrogen or another fuel to convert into electrical energy. This converted electrical energy can be directed to external devices in order to provide electric power to do work. Further, fuel cells can be used to power automobiles, aircrafts and other devices. Fuel cells have a number of application including power generation, fuel cell electric vehicles and other applications.

Market Size & Forecast

Global defense fuel cell market is anticipated to grow at a robust compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.9% over the forecast period i.e.2017-2024. The global market of defense fuel cell is expected to reach at a valuation of around USD 815.2 Million by the end of forecast period.

Defense Fuel Cell Market

Growing awareness regarding hazardous effect of carbon emission on environment and better performance of fuel cells over other alternatives are some major factors which are expected to fuel the demand for fuel cell in defense sector.

Further, global defense fuel cell market is segmented into fuel cell technology, application and region. Regionally, global defense fuel cell market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America & Middle East & Africa region.

Moreover, North America region is likely to be the major market of defense fuel cells during the forecast period. U.S. is anticipated to contribute significantly in growth of North America defense fuel cells market. In U.S., factors such as presence of better defense technological infrastructure and increased defense budgets by government are likely to allow defense forces to adopt new & advanced technologies such as fuel cells.

Moreover, Europe defense fuel cell market is anticipated to grow at a significant pace during the forecast period owing to the factors such as high investments by governments in research and development of advanced technology in defense sector. Additionally, Asia Pacific region is also expected to witness satisfactory growth over the forecast period. This growth in Asia Pacific region can be attributed to favorable government initiatives and increased investment to strengthen their defense forces.
