Fuel Cell System Market

The Japanese market of Residential fuel cells almost takes a place beside the North American market of Large Stationary
The total market in 2013 was 109.4 billion yen in terms of monetary amount, and 170MW in terms of output scale. The ratio of fuel cells for Large Stationary was more than 60% in terms of monetary amount, and more than 70% in terms of output scale. Then, the ratio of Residential fuel cells follows. The ratio of these two applications is more than 90%.
Among the areas, the North American market, making up 40%, was the largest, same as the result of the previous Fuji Keizai's research.
Mass production of fuel cell vehicles will start around 2020
Commercial fuel cell vehicles (FCV) released at the end of 2014 come under the spotlight as a future market, together with hy drogenrelated infrastructures. After 2015, foreign manufacturers will launch products, following the domestic manufacturers. Althou gh the first generation of products by the preceding car manufacturers will fully prepared around 2018, their manufacturing costs will be still high.Mass production of tens of thousands of vehicles will start around 2020. The manufacturers have already started developing next generation models, and will focus on low–cost manufacturing further.

PEFC Component / Material

The PEFC stack component market size in 2013 was 8.9 billion yen. Approx. 45% was for fuel cell vehicles, and large part of those components were used for R&D such as tests of stacks and development of cells. Soon, the domestic and foreign manufacturers will release commercial products consistently,and the component market will shift from R&D oriented to commercial oriented. As a result, the PEFC component market will rapidly grow up.

SOFC Component / Material

The SOFC stack component market size in 2013 was 6.2 billion yen. Major companies which provide commercial SOFC products are foreign companies. Especially, Bloom Energy products are most required. Many Japanese companies supply electrolyte components and others to Bloom Energy. In the domestic market, Kyocera takes a lead. The market of mainly home–use applications will be formed, as TOTO, NGK Spark Plug, Sumitomo Precision Products, and NGK Insulators will newly release their products.

Hydrogen Refueling Station Market in Japan

In Japan, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry provides a prior preparation project for construction of hydrogen stations for fuel cell vehicles along with commercial distribution of them. This prior preparation project has started in 2013.
Some foreign countries are constructing hydrogen stations, and when internal stations and demonstration stations are included, not a few stations exist. However, only the limited number of stations are available for general users. We give an eye to the areas such as California in the US, Germany, England, and Northern European countries. In Japan, supposedly 74 hydrogen stations (totally 81 locations) will start operation by March 2016. As a result, Japan has the largest number of hydrogen stations in the world.
