Dublin, July 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Market for Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles, 2017" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

This is a comprehensive market research report on the global market for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles

Cumulatively, over 22.2 million hydrogen fuel cell vehicles be sold or leased worldwide by 2032. These sales will generate collective revenues upwards of $1.1 trillion for the auto industry by 2032. Information Trends projects that by 2050, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles will become the fastest growing segment of the global automobile market.

With only three major competitors in the market, Toyota generated over 80 percent in sales in 2016. Hyundai had second highest sales, followed by Honda. The market will become more competitive as Mercedes-Benz rollouts out a fuel cell vehicle in the second half of 2017, followed by several other automakers over the next few years.

Current customers of these vehicles include vehicle fleets, government agencies, and early adopters. Until a critical mass of customers is reached in the 2020's, the market will remain confined to early adopters and affluent segments of society.

The following developments point to a bright future for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles:

- Widespread deployments of hydrogen fueling stations in several regions of the world.
- Emergence of public-private partnerships to support these deployments and to drive the uptake of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles
- Serious spending on R&D to drive component costs and fueling infrastructure costs down to make hydrogen fuel cell vehicles cost-competitive with other vehicles.

By 2020, sufficient hydrogen fueling infrastructures will be in place in several regions of the world, giving an initial boost to the market for these vehicles. As fueling infrastructures further expand during the 2020's, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles will begin to garner even greater market acceptance.
