Direct Methanol Fuel Cell Market

DMFCs are fuel cells that use methanol as a source of fuel. Methanol is a dense and reasonably stable liquid at all environmental conditions. It also has the ability to store high energy content in a confined space, thereby making it one of the preferred sources of fuel in a fuel cell.
The automotive direct methanol fuel cell is expected to grow at a CAGR of 34.25% during the forecast period. The power density is the most important property of the DMFC and will be improved during this period. North America leads the automotive DMFC market followed by European countries.

DMFCs as a source of fuel are gaining worldwide acceptance with the increase in demand for clean energy. The depletion of global gas and oil reserves has led to the adoption of this renewable source of energy. The shift of focus towards renewable energies is driven by the growing public awareness and government initiatives. However, DMFCs are limited in power capacity as they can produce as well as rectify other technical problems related to reactions in electrode that affects the voltage efficiency. The high cost of DMFC components like platinum and platinum-based alloys increases the overall cost of DMFCs. However, there have been several technological advancements that have helped to address the technical limitations of DMFCs to a significant level by bringing down the fuel crossover and oxidation reduction.

The report segments the market by vehicle type, application and geography.
