Fuel cells convert the chemical energy stored in the molecular bonds into electrical energy. The fuel cells produce water heat and electricity and owing to this, they are environment-friendly and have zero emissions. Fuel cell stack is an assembly of more than two individual fuel cells stacked over each other in order to achieve higher power ratings and voltage.

Fuel cell stack possesses flexible power output, allows easy addition and removal of fuel cells, and has modular designs among other features. The fuel cell stack provides a wide range of power ratings, operating temperature ranges, and have applications in the portable power supply.

By type, the fuel cell stack market is bifurcated based on the cooling mechanism used, i.e. air-cooled and liquid-cooled fuel cell stack. The air-cooled fuel cell stack has lower power ratings and is used in applications such as battery range extenders and portable power. The liquid-cooled fuel cell stack has a higher power rating as compared to the air-cooled fuel cell stack.

The liquid-cooled fuel stack has applications in hybrid batteries, primary power for grid backup, and power unit among others. Owing to a broader range of applications, the liquid-cooled fuel cell stacks are expected to hold the lion's share in the global fuel cell stack market by type during the forecast period. By application, the fuel cell stack market is categorized on the basis of the uses in portable power, backup power, motive power, and material handling equipment among others.

Fuel cell stacks are highly efficient and are widely in demand for automotive industry applications. The growth in demand for the vehicles and increasing on-road fleet are expected to drive the automotive industry in the coming years. Owing to this, the fuel cell stack market is expected to grow at a healthy rate in the near future. The fuel cell stacks are totally environment-friendly and have zero carbon emissions.

The efficiency of the fuel cell stacks is higher as compared to its other counterparts such as batteries. Owing to this, the fuel cell stack manufacturers are focused on investing massive amounts into the research and development of fuel stacks. This is likely to boost the growth of the fuel cell stack market in the near future.

Fuel cell stack is at the introduction phase in the market and is not fully commercialized. The other counterparts such as batteries are economical in cost as compared to the fuel cell stack. This is expected to have a negative impact on the growth of the fuel cell stack market in the coming years.
