Global Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell Market is valued at approximately USD 5.16 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 15.6% over the forecast period 2022-2029. The proton-exchange membrane fuel cells is a polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells. It is a variety of fuel cell that is specially designed for transport applications, stationary fuel-cell applications, and portable fuel-cell applications. It offers a particular proton-conducting polymer electrolyte membrane and a lower temperature range. The growing concerns related to greenhouse gas emissions, increasing obligation for the adoption of clean vehicle fuel, and abundant supply of hydrogen are some of the prominent factors that are burgeoning the market demand across the globe.

The increasing number of government policies in order to develop H2-based fuels and hydrogen refueling stations for vehicles is acting as a catalyzing factor for market growth. For instance, in October 2020, the Canadian Advanced Air Mobility Consortium introduced the major initiative for Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) to boost the deployment of hydrogen and electric-powered vertical takeoff flights. AAM involves using zero-emission, hydrogen fuel cells, and vertical takeoff flights to provide transportation, emergency, and supply chain services for rural and urban areas. Similarly, in 2019, the South Korean government focused on establishing hydrogen refueling stations in line with its policy associated with hydrogen that promoted the usage of clean energy in the automobile industry. Therefore, these aforementioned factors are exhibiting a positive influence on the growth of the market. Moreover, the rising initiatives by the key market players, as well as the increasing investment related to planning and construction of new stations are presenting various lucrative opportunities over the forecasting years. However, the complicated management process of bulk fueling stations and the high cost of producing and delivering hydrogen fuel to service stations are hampering the market growth throughout the forecast period of 2022-2029.

The key regions considered for the Global Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell Market study include Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Rest of the World. Europe dominated the market in terms of revenue, owing to the rising focus on using eco-friendly objectives to remove the rate of emission and rising sales and popularity of FCs vehicles. Whereas, the Asia Pacific is also expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to factors such as favorable government regulations in developed and developing countries, geographic expansion of key players, and growing investment in the development of hydrogen-based fuel in the market space.
