Protonic Ceramic Fuel Cell Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis By Mobility (Stationary, Portable, Transport), By Application (Transportation, Military, Utilities, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI101409 | Status : Ongoing



With the increasing growth in population and improvement in living standards, the human demand for backup power generation has also increased. Although several power generation storages are available, alternative power generation for backup purposes are not commercially viable. The energy supply may not match energy demand. Fuel cells can be used to fulfill the backup energy demands of the system.

Protonic ceramics fuel cell is a relatively new technology in the fuel cell world. As the name suggests, protonic ceramic fuel cells are based ceramic electrolytic material. This ceramic electrolytic material exhibits high protonic activity at high temperatures. Protonic ceramic fuel cells have inherent thermal and kinetic advantages for high-temperature operations. The high operating temperature is necessary to achieve high efficiency for electrical conversion.

Protonic ceramic fuel cells do not require to produce hydrogen during the process as compared to traditional fuel cells. Protonic ceramic fuel cells use a solid electrolyte, and it does not pose a risk of drying out or leakage. The protonic ceramic fuel cells use the gaseous molecules of hydrocarbon fuel which are absorbed in the anode. The protonic ceramic fuel cells are able to utilize wide variety of fuel sources.   

On the basis of mobility, protonic ceramic fuel cell can be segmented in portable, stationary and transport. On the basis of application, the global protonic ceramic fuel cell is divided into transportation, Military, Utilities, and others.

The primary market driver for global protonic ceramic fuel cell market is the increase in demand for energy production devices. Alternative energy production devices are the need of the hour for backup power. The key market restraint for global protonic ceramic fuel cell is the complex technology. This technology is still in nascent stage of development and is still not commercially developed.
