Direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs) are a subcategory of proton exchange fuel cells in which methanol is used as the fuel. These cells have low efficiency compared to other fuel cells, ranging from 15% to 30%. It is preferred for portable application where energy and power density are more important than efficiency and it can also be stored and transported easily.
The report “Direct Methanol Fuel Cells (DMFCs) Market Forecast 2014-2019”, analyses the market in terms of geography. In terms of geography, this market is segmented covering North America, Europe, Asia, and Rest of the world.
Fuel cells allow more KWH storage than batteries of same weight, that’s why it is preferred as a replacement of batteries. There is also rise in investment from governments and companies towards this industry since last decades. Fuel cells are also flexible because it allows variety of fuels like natural gas, biogas for providing fuel and wind, sun as sources of energy. These above factors are driving this market to grow.
Direct methanol fuel cells are of low weight so these are suitable for portable, automotive and mobile applications. The methanol is easy in transporting and handling, and is stable at all atmospheric conditions.
The report provides an extensive competitive landscaping of key companies operating in this market. The key players of the market are Fuel Cell Technologies Inc. (U.S.), Toshiba (Japan), and others.
