Executive Overview of Fuel Cells in the Global Aviation Industry : Fuel Cells to Emerge as the Alternate Source of Power Supply

The study covers 3 different segments—commercial, business, and general aviation—across the industry either as a primary application or as a secondary application. It provides the basic definitions, key drivers and restraints, and the challenges faced by the fuel cells market. The study also includes various prototypes as case studies, detailing current and future industry trends. A technology road map of fuel cells, along with the stakeholder environment, is also discussed.

Aviation Fuel Cells Market—Top 10 Predictions for 2025

PEMFC will remain the dominant type of fuel cell till 2025 for primary applications in small to large UAVs, due to its ability to work under normal temperatures and without the need for additional cooling.

Early commercialization of fuel cells can be seen in small UAVs by 2017, as the power required is less, which results in light-weight fuel cells that can offer higher endurance capabilities than conventional Li-ion batteries.

The PEMFC segment is expected to dominate the overall fuel cells market by 2018, owing to its wide range of capabilities—ranging from primary propulsion applications to secondary auxiliary power applications.

Fuel cells are most likely to be the sought-after alternate source of power after batteries, by 2020, mainly for primary applications in small UAVs and secondary applications such as back-up power and auxiliary power units, because of their stability, reliability, and early return on investment (ROI).

Most large UAVs and manned flights will have a hybrid system that has a Li-ion battery along with the fuel cell to cope with the high power requirement, mainly for primary applications and long operating cycles, by 2025.

Better technology to store hydrogen are seen in recent developments, such as the AEROPAK by Horizon Energy Systems. It uses light-weight titanium grade pressure regulators, which add more value to the fuel cells, making them a viable option by 2017.
