Fuel Cell Powertrain Market worth USD 3.75 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 70.15% – Report by Market Research Future (MRFR)

New York, July 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fuel Cell Powertrain Market Overview: According to a comprehensive research report by Market Research Future (MRFR), Fuel Cell Powertrain Market Research Report, Component, Drive Type, Vehicle Type, Power Output and Region – Forecast till 2027″ the market is projected to be worth USD 3.75 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 70.15% during the forecast period (2021 – 2027), The market was valued at USD 287 million in 2020.

COVID-19 Analysis 

The fuel cell powertrain market is greatly influenced by the sale of FCEVs and also infrastructure for the hydrogen station. Owing to the crisis, major economies have faced a dire situation. Business operations have been adversely impacted by lockdowns and there has also been an increase in unemployment rates. The sales figures of the vehicle segment are likely to remain low post lifting of the lockdowns too. The unprecedented impact of the crisis and weaker need for vehicles will be a huge concern for fuel cell component manufacturers. The OEMs are likely to resume production with low capacity utilization and will also adjust production as per the demand. Thus the growth of the fuel cell powertrains will be impacted adversely but there will be a subsequent rise in sales. Leading component providers like Panasonic, Continental, Denso, and Bosch have restricted investments in innovative and new systems. Thus the growth of the market is likely to be low in 2020 & 2021. The key manufacturers have announced either adjustments or suspensions owing to the supply chain bottlenecks, reduced demand, and ensure the safety of employees in North America, Europe, and China during the pandemic. Continental for instance halted its operations in more than 40% of its 249 production locations across the world as of April 2020. Manufacturers are likely to adjust production for preventing bottlenecks and plan production as per the demand from Tier I and OEMs manufacturers. The market for fuel cell powertrain is predicted to undergo a phase of decline in terms of sales of 2020.
