    This review is the 1st edition of a study of the fuel cell market in Russia and the world.

    The purpose of the study is to analyze the Russian market of fuel cells for hydrogen energy.

    This market has been monitored since 2014.

    The object of the research is fuel cells of various types and designs, their production in Russia and the world, as well as export-import operations and consumption in 2014-2019.

    Chronological framework of the study: 2014-2019, forecast - 2020-2035.

    Geography of research: Russian Federation - a comprehensive detailed analysis, the whole world - a brief description.

    This work is a desk study. The sources of information were data from Rosstat, the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, scientific and technical literature, industry, regional and international press, as well as the websites of enterprises - manufacturers and consumers of fuel cells.


    The report consists of an introduction and 7 chapters, contains 80 pages, including 12 tables and 22 figures, 3 appendices.

    The first chapter is devoted to the classification of fuel cells, in particular, the technical and commercial classification of these devices is considered.

    The second chapter of the report describes Russian standards for fuel cells (they are compatible with international ones), including test methods and requirements for hydrogen as the main fuel.

    The third chapter is devoted to the production of fuel cells in the world in 2014-2019; the regional and commercial structure of production is given.

    The fourth chapter examines the state of the production of fuel cells in Russia in 2014-2019.

    The fifth chapter examines foreign trade operations with fuel cells in Russia in 2014-2019.

    The sixth chapter provides information on the consumption of fuel cells in Russia in 2014-2019.

    The seventh chapter gives a forecast of fuel cell consumption in Russia for 2020-2035.

    The appendices provide key terms for hydrogen energy, contact information for manufacturers and a list of used literature.


    A feature of the report that distinguishes it from competitors is the analysis of the competencies and capabilities of Russian enterprises for the production of fuel cells and their components.


    Target audience of the study:

    - market participants of fuel cells and their components - manufacturers, consumers, traders;

    - potential investors.


    The proposed study claims to be a reference manual for marketing services and decision-makers working in the market of fuel cells and their components.
