Global $3.79 Bn Fuel Cell Powertrain Markets, 2020-2025 with Ballard Power Systems, Cummins, Denso, Robert Bosch, and FEV Dominating
Dublin, Oct. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Fuel Cell Powertrain Market by Components (Fuel Cell System, Drive System, Battery System, Hydrogen Storage System, & Others), Vehicle Type (PCs, LCV, Trucks, Buses), Power Output, Drive Type, H2 Fuel Station and Region – Global Forecast to 2025” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. The Global Fuel Cell Powertrain Market Size is Projected to Grow from USD 268 Million in 2020 to USD 3,797 Million by 2025, at a CAGR of 70.0%. The advent of fuel-efficient technology will have a significant impact on fuel cell electric vehicles, which, in turn, will drive the fuel cell powertrain market.FCEVs offer a high driving range, fast refueling, noiseless operation, and zero-emission of greenhouse gases and air pollutants. Hence, their use is ideal for transportation and automotive applications. The key components of fuel cell powertrain are designed for compactness as they combine all e-drive components such as e-motors, transmissions, and inverters to offer maximum space for the battery; offer higher efficiency and power density; control electrically-driven oil pump integrated into power electronics, and provide an advanced cooling system to meet the different temperature requirements of the components. Hence, these are being widely preferred for heavy commercial vehicles to reduce system costs by integrating different components into one unit/system.The increasing advancements for safer material would drive the hydrogen storage systems market for the forecasted period.The hydrogen storage system stores hydrogen gas on board until it is required by the fuel cell. As hydrogen is extremely flammable, it needs to be handled safely. Hydrogen storage is one of the key enabling technology for the advancement of hydrogen and fuel cell in applications for stationary power, portable power, and transportation. Increasing developments and integration of hydrogen storage tanks in more fuel cell vehicles would be a major growth driver. Key advantages offered by hydrogen storage tanks such as greater heat tolerance, no filling restrictions in hot or cold weather, and superior fast filling efficiency would encourage more fuel cell vehicle manufacturers to adopt this component as part of fuel cell powertrain.&lessThan;150 kW, by power output is expected to be the largest market during the forecast periodThe >150 kW power output is used in passenger cars, some buses, LCVs, trucks, and industrial vehicles. This segment is expected to be the largest in the fuel cell powertrain market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the progression of the segment compared to the other two segments in terms of research & development activities, which enabled the application of the >150 kW fuel cell powertrain by OEMs for various vehicle models. For instance, the Toyota Mirai has a power output of 113 kW and was among the first hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to be commercially manufactured.Passenger cars, by vehicle type segment, is expected to be the largest market in the forecast periodThe passenger cars segment is projected to be the largest in the fuel cell powertrain market. The high adoption rate, increasing per capita income, and rising demand for personal mobility is expected to drive the fuel cell passenger cars market. Additionally, government plans to convert ICE taxi fleets into zero-emission ones across various countries would provide significant growth opportunities in the years to come. The LCV segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment. High efficiency, long driving range, and the need to decrease greenhouse gas emissions will boost the fuel cell LCV market.Major players in the fuel cell powertrain market are Ballard Power Systems (Canada), Cummins Inc. (US), Denso Corporation (Japan), Robert Bosch GmbH (Germany), and FEV (Germany).

"Tectonic forces" could cause economic upheaval: Poloz – Investment Executive
This could lead to many different inflationary scenarios from a return to the 2% inflation target to an inflation outbreak, or to stagflation or deflation.
“Personally, I would not weight them equally, but I would attach a meaningful weight to each of them and suggest that [investors] think about ways to preserve [their] capital should any of them arise,” said Poloz who is a special advisor with Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP.
“We should not fall in love with the high probability scenario where inflation just returns to 2% and remains there.”
One driver of high interest rates in recent decades was the population surge of the post-war baby boom. As this generation now moves into retirement, Poloz believes that the high real interest rates of the past “were an aberration” and should not be expected to return.
While there is an expectation for interest rates to normalize along with inflation targets, Poloz notes there is growing concern that inflation could get out of control as governments borrow a “staggering amount of money.”
The former central banker said that today’s central banks are well-equipped to keep inflation in check via monetary policy.
However, three of the tectonic shifts mentioned could disrupt central banks in their policy goals: growing indebtedness, technological progress and rising inequality.
Global indebtedness was on the rise long before Covid-19 hit, said Poloz.
As a result of monetary and fiscal policies that have prevented recessions, individuals and companies are not retrenching and rebalancing their finances as they might have done in the past. From an investor point of view, this leads to the danger of “zombie firms” that are not “washed out of the system” as they might have been.
In the case of technology, progress generally means more efficiency and lower costs for companies over the long-term, said Poloz. But, that same progress can have serious economic consequences in the short term in the form of economic depressions and disruption.
The world is currently experiencing a fourth industrial revolution as the economy becomes digitized through artificial intelligence — which is leading to fears within workforces that a few large firms will scoop up all the economic benefits, leading to growing income inequality.
“People believe and expect that economic growth is like yeast, it spreads everywhere, so everybody benefits,” said Poloz. “But the reality is more like mushrooms that pop up here and there and single firms can reap most of the benefits.”
Climate change is also having a seismic effect on the economy as more companies try to shift their businesses to environmentally-friendly processes. The problem, noted Poloz, is “markets are really bad at distinguishing between shades of green. They’re essentially only able to tell the difference between green and not-green.”
Firms will have to move towards “full carbon transparency,” which will require significant investments in analytics or consultancy work. And, “firms who invest in this early deserve your attention,” said Poloz.
With these forces in play, “volatility beyond the norm is now a given,” said Poloz. A firm’s risk management for these factors will be key to creating shareholder value and will likely be “the next channel of intangible investment.”
