GCC Fuel Cell Market Overview:

The GCC fuel cell market was worth US$ XX Billion in 2022, expanding at a CAGR of X% during 2017-2022. Looking forward, the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around X% during 2023-2028, reaching a value of US$ XX Billion by 2028. A fuel cell is a powering device that can convert chemical energy into electric energy using a proton exchange membrane (PEM). It generally consists of a cathode, anode, catalyst and PEM. They are widely utilized as a power source for supplying electricity across the residential and commercial segments.

The market in the GCC region is majorly driven by the continual depletion of fossil fuels. With the increasing demand for uninterrupted power supply and the rising electricity rates across the region, there has been a considerable rise in the adoption of fuel cells. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include numerous favorable government initiatives that promote the uptake of fuel cells across the GCC region and extensive research and development (R&D) activities.

 A fuel cell is a powering device which runs on the system of converting chemical energy into electric energy. Fuel cells can be used to power anything from car batteries to mini cities or even entire towns. Hydrogen based fuel cells are considered to be the most powerful ones. They use a Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) to cause a reaction between the Hydrogen and Oxygen to produce energy. The primary benefit of using a fuel cell is that the by-products it produces are completely nontoxic in nature. A fuel cell comprises of four parts – the anode, the cathode, the PEM, and the catalyst. The anode and the cathode send Hydrogen and Oxygen molecules to the catalyst which conducts the reaction with the help of the PEM. The products of this reaction are water, electricity, and heat. Various automobile brands are launching fuel cell based vehicles and industries are applying it in their machines.
