Global Stationary Fuel Cells Market Is Expected To Reach $14.3 billion By 2020: Radiant Insights
WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study Stationary Fuel Cell Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2014 to 2020. The 2014 study has 603 pages, 258 tables and figures. Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the Stationary Fuel Cells used to provide distributed power for campus environments achieve better technology and economies of scale. They have achieved grid parity in many cases. They improve and lower energy costs. They threaten to erode utility profitability.
Stationary Fuel Cells are on the cusp of becoming commercially viable, creating companies that are profitable and produce electricity at or below parity with the grid giving every user alternatives to the grid. Bloom Energy has solved the SOFC engineering challenges. Breakthroughs in materials science, and revolutionary designs give Bloom SOFC technology a cost effective, all-electric solution.

Vendors have solved the SOFC conundrum, developing new materials that make units affordable and provide energy device economies of scale and support for wind and solar renewable energy sources.
Stationary fuel cells represent the base for distributed power generation worldwide. No more new coal plants, no mare extensions to the grid. Distributed power has become mainstream. Distributed generation (DG) refers to power generation at the point of consumption.
Generating power on-site, rather than centrally, eliminates the cost, complexity, interdependencies, and inefficiencies associated with energy transmission and distribution. Distributed energy is evolving in a manner like distributed PC and laptop computing, cars for transportation, and smart phones. As distributed Internet data and telephony have found a place in the market, so also will distributed energy generation become widespread. Distributed power shifts energy generation control to the consumer much to the consternation of the existing utility companies.
Renewable energy is intermittent and needs stationary fuel cells for renewables to achieve mainstream adoption as a stable power source. Wind and solar power cannot be stored except by using the energy derived from these sources to make hydrogen that can be stored. Stationary fuel cells are likely to function as a battery in the long term, creating a way to use hydrogen that is manufactured from the renewable energy sources. It is likely that the wind and tide energy will be transported as electricity to a location where the hydrogen can be manufactured. It is far easier to transport electricity than to transport hydrogen. Hydrogen servers as an energy storage mechanism.

Stationary fuel cell markets need government sponsorship. As government funding shifts from huge military obligations, sustainable energy policy becomes a compelling investment model for government.
Stationary fuel cell markets at $1.2 billion in 2013 are projected to increase to $14.3 billion in 2020. Growth is anticipated to be based on demand for distributed power generation that uses natural gas. Systems provide clean energy that is good for the environment. Growth is based on global demand and will shift from simple growth to rapid growth measured as a penetration analysis as markets move beyond the early adopter stage. The big box retailers including many, led by Walmart, the data centers, and companies like Verizon are early adopters.
Eventually hydrogen will be used as fuel in the same stationary fuel cell devices. The hydrogen is manufactured from solar farms. Stationary fuel cells have become more feasible as the industry is able to move beyond platinum catalysts.

Global Sports Nutrition Market 2015-2019:
Sports nutrition products are specially designed to supplement the intake of essential nutrients, to enhance performance, increase physical strength, build muscle, and improve the overall well-being of consumers. Sport nutrition products are useful in supplementing various nutrients such as proteins, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, and fats, which help consumers in improving their stamina and physical performance. Traditionally, these products were considered to be consumed only by athletes, sportspersons, and bodybuilders. However, with the increasing awareness about sports nutrition products, the demand for these products is increasing among non-traditional consumers who are looking for healthy lifestyles. Growing demand, from non-traditional consumers, has led to the introduction of sports nutrition products in various forms, such as protein bars, powders, protein supplements, beverages, amino acids, and snacks. These nutrition products are gaining importance in worldwide with the increasing awareness about the benefits associated with them. Also, new ingredients being used in these products are expected to help attract more consumers and increase the demand for sports nutrition products.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Sports Nutrition market to grow at a CAGR of 8.10 percent in terms of revenue over the period 2014-2019.
