Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs), also known as polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells, are a form of fuel cell that is primarily being developed for transportation uses, as well as stationary and portable fuel-cell applications. Their unique features include a particular proton-conducting polymer electrolyte membrane and a lower temperature range. PEMFCs produce electricity and work in the reverse way of PEM electrolysis, which consumes it. They are a strong contender to take over from the Space Shuttle's outdated alkaline fuel-cell technology. Membrane electrode assemblies (MEA) consist of electrodes, electrolyte, catalyst, and gas diffusion layers, and are used to construct PEMFCs. Because of its small size, the PEMFC is an excellent choice for automotive and other mobile applications of all sizes, including mobile phones. The primary application of PEM fuel cells is transportation, owing to its potential environmental impact, such as the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). PEM fuel cells are used exclusively by the majority of major automobile manufacturers due to its high-power density and good dynamic characteristics when compared to other types of fuel cells.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • The inability to find skilled labour, and the loss of personnel, because of the shutdown of manufacturing sites due to the COVID-19 pandemic has hampered the demand for proton exchange membrane fuel cells.
  • Supply chains have been hampered, and operating time has been suffered as a result of the state-wide shutdown. These problems have had a negative impact on the proton exchange membrane fuel cell market.

Top Impacting Factors

Numerous companies are compelled to implement PEMFC due to the urgent requirement to upgrade and diversify the energy infrastructure. Unlike fossil fuels, they are energy-efficient, dependable, and environmentally friendly. They do not, however, produce harmful gases such as nitrogen oxide, carbon dioxide, or sulphur oxide. In the coming years, the abundant supply of hydrogen is predicted to promote the proton exchange membrane fuel cell market growth. The rise in demand for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and battery electric vehicles, on the other hand, is expected to discourage investment. Another factor that is projected to limit the market growth is the high cost of producing and delivering hydrogen fuel to service stations, as well as the complicated management process of bulk fueling stations. In addition, the planning and construction of new stations necessitates significant investment that is influenced by a variety of market factors.

Market Trends

  • Temasek Holdings and Nanofilm Technologies have agreed to form a joint venture to explore further potential in the field of hydrogen energy. The recently established organization is called Sydrogen Energy, and it will use the former's unique materials surface solutions to critical components in electrolyzer systems and fuel cells.
  • Johnson Matthey has successfully commercialised its zero-carbon green hydrogen production technology. It has also increased the capacity of its Swindon plant's catalyst-coated membrane production.
  • Scientists working on the Ultra press research project, which is part of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research's (BMBF's) KMU-NetC initiative, have developed a new and advanced hot-pressing process for producing bipolar plates in fuel cells using an Ultra high-performance concrete (UHPC) tool. By reducing cycle time and total production costs, the innovation can greatly improve the performance of high temperature PEM fuel cells.
