May 14, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] The global fuel cell industry will generate more than US$18.6 billion in 2013, according to new findings from Allied Business Intelligence (ABI). Fuel cell sales will be generated from three main market applications: Automotive, Stationary, and Portables. ABI projects sales could generate near US$35 billion if market conditions improve for automotive fuel cells, driven by strong government endorsement from three major regions — the U.S., EU, and Japan. The study examines each major market segment’s sales breakdown for the next decade in three major regions: The U.S., EU and Japan. The forecasts present each major fuel cell market segment’s potential revenues both in dollars and in unit shipments. The report also analyzes the basic characteristics, as well as market driven factors, of a potential “supply chain” that will occur in the coming years, as fuel cells gain greater recognition. Major materials and components that constitute fuel cell systems are analyzed, along with their potential sales within the fuel cell industry for the next decade.
