Phosphoric Acid Fuel Cell (PAFC) Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 - 2026

Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC839


Phosphoric acid fuel cells (PAFCs) are the first economical fuel cells appropriate for stationary applications. PAFCs catalyst is formed by using platinum and uses liquefied phosphoric acid as electrolyte. These fuel cells are 40% to 50% effective and proficiency can be improved. The usual life cycles of PAFCs are around 40,000hr to 65,000hr. It can function by using renewable energy, variety of fuels and fossil fuels. They are considered as the most mature fuel cell categories and first group of modern fuel cells.

Market Dynamics

Fuel cells permit more KWH storing than batteries of similar weight, hence, more inclination towards PAFCs are seen over batteries. However, expensive cost for early manufacturing may restraint the growth of PAFCs market. Increase in investment from companies and governments towards this commerce are expected to boost growth of this market in near future.

Market Classification

The market can be bifurcated on the basis of product, end user and geography. By product, phosphoric acid fuel cell (PAFC) market can be segmented into hydrogen fuel, alcohol fuel and other. By end user, phosphoric acid fuel cell (PAFC) market can be segmented intopower plant, large vehicles and other. On the basis of geography, the phosphoric acid fuel cell (PAFC) marketcan be segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East & Africa (MEA) and Asia-Pacific.
