The fuel cells market by product type is majorly covered by PEMFC (Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell) in terms of revenue followed by MCFC (Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell). PEMFC and MCFC are expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.5% and 17.8% respectively from 2013 to 2018. In terms of power (MW), PEMFC and MCFC again dominated the market, accounting for 46.3% and 39.2% of total demand in 2011 respectively. However, by 2018, MCFC is likely to overtake PEMFC market owing to the increasing market of stationary fuel cell systems. PEMFC is used in a wide variety of applications including forklifts, automobiles, telecommunications, data centers, primary and backup power systems owing to its relatively low operating temperature and high power density. MCFC fuel cells are mainly used for stationary power generation and CHP applications, and are available as commercial products.
