Global Portable Power Fuel Cells Market: Trends and Opportunities
The global portable power fuel cells market has been helped immensely by the steady technological development in fuel cell technology over the past few years. This has led to the availability of highly efficient and power-dense portable fuel cells, which have become some of the key revenue generators for the global portable power fuel cells market.
Another key driver for the global portable power fuel cells is the variety of fuels that can be used to power portable fuel cells. Methanol, ethanol, butane, diesel, and hydrogen are some of the most popular fuels used in portable power fuel cells. The relative ease of acquiring hydrocarbon fuels such as methanol, ethanol, and butane has helped the global portable power fuel cells, as it has made operating them easier and affordable.
On the other hand, portable power fuel cells are limited by an inherent feature of their design: Since portable fuel cells may need to be refilled at a remote location, the user needs to carry the highly flammable fuels along with the fuel cell.
In addition to this obvious risk, portable power fuel cells are also at risk of becoming redundant in the coming years. Due to the notable government support afforded to power grid enhancements and the development and adoption of smart grids, grid power is becoming easily available in even previously unreachable areas. In addition, the use of locally self-sustainable forms of energy generation such as solar, wind, and small-scale hydropower has also become a more viable and, in the long run, cheaper alternative to portable fuel cells. The need for portable power sources in urban areas is also scant, as sharing power sockets in public areas such as hotels and public transportation has become a common practice in urban areas across the world.
