"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"
A sustainable and alternative method of power generation under vehement development to meet the massive require of energy. Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) is a type of fuel in which it directly produces electrical energy from the direct electrochemical reaction between a fuel (hydrogen) and oxidant (Oxygen). Fuel cell becoming a promising power source for much practical application ranging from stationary to transportation.
Gas diffusion layer (GDL) is one of the vital components in the operation of a fuel cell. Gas Diffusion Layer (GDL) is basically carbon-based and wet proofed porous medium generally situated between the catalyst layer and cathode flow field.

It performs an essential function such as the passage of reactant transport and heat/water removal, mechanical support to the membrane electrode assembly (MEA), transport of the reactant and by-products to and from the catalyst layers and protection of catalyst from corrosion. Due to its advantageous properties, it has been used in various fuel cells which forecasted to offer a lucrative market for the growth of the fuel cell gas diffusion layer.
Fuel cell gas diffusion layer market is classified into product type and application. Product type is further bifurcated into carbon paper and carbon cloth. Carbon paper dominates the fuel cell gas diffusion layer market due to its excellent features such as high conductivity, high gas permeability, corrosion resistance, and smooth surface. The gas diffusion layer is used in a different fuel cell for enhancing the performance of the fuel cell.
World leaders have united to combat against greenhouse emission and enormously to invest in the cleaner energy source. Intense research and development in fuel cell technology have enabled its commercialization and many countries are adopting this technology to generate electricity.
Therefore, in the upcoming period, many commercial and government entities are expanding the electricity generation by a fuel cell which develops the fuel cell gas diffusion layer market.
Fuel cell technology is in the nascent stage, and many technological glitches obstruct its growth. Extraction of hydrogen fossil fuel is quite expensive and storing needs standardized conditions which require additional research that retards the growth of the fuel. Consequently, these factors restrain the growth of the fuel cell gas diffusion layer market.
The major companies involved in manufacturing fuel cell gas diffusion layer market are Toray Industries, Inc., The Chemours Company, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, DuPont, Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies, Ballard Power Systems, SGL Group, NuVant Systems Inc., AvCarb Material Solutions, CAPLINQ Corporation, Sainergy, Freudenberg Performance Materials, Gerard Daniel Worldwide, Inc., and AMETEK.

The fuel cell gas diffusion layer market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. The United States has committed to invest in fuel cell power generation and operating 56 large scale fuel cell generating units high than 1MW. The fuel cell used for backup power for data centers, hospitals, educational institutions, and so on. In addition to this, the ongoing demand for fuel cell-powered electric vehicle is augmenting the growth of the fuel cell gas diffusion layer market in North America. The European Union is committed to transforming its transport and energy system into low carbon system by 2050 and to decoupling economic growth from resource and energy use, reducing greenhouse gas emission, and increasing energy security. As per the pact signed by 28 member states of EU at Paris agreement to keep global warming well below 2 °C. These factors boost the growth of the fuel cell gas diffusion layer. The fuel cell gas diffusion market in the Asia Pacific is forecasted to increase due to enormous investment by the Chinese government and initiative taken by Indian authorities for a cleaner energy source.
