AEM Fuel Cells Gain Prominence in Ion Exchange Membrane Market
Fuel cells have become one of the biggest hot topics in the ion exchange membrane market. Companies in the market landscape are supporting the production of fuel cells by increasing R&D activities associated with anion exchange membranes (AEMs). As such, the revenue of AEMs is projected for exponential growth in the ion exchange membrane market, where the global value is estimated to reach ~US$ 1 Bn by the end of 2027. Hence, companies are increasing the applicability of fuel cells to power vehicles and electronic devices such as computers and mobile phones.
AEMs are being highly publicized to improve the efficiency of petrol engines in vehicles. AEM fuel cells are replacing proton exchange membranes (PEMs) in the ion exchange membrane market, owing to the former’s advantage of operating under alkaline or basic conditions. Thus, advantageous attributes of AEMs are being highly preferred by companies who are achieving mass production of AEM fuel cells.
Alkaline Metal-air Batteries Help Stabilize Electrical Grids in Energy Sectors
Today, wind and solar are one of the fastest-growing energy sources in the world. Gradual depletion of fossil fuels has triggered the demand for renewable energy alternatives in various energy sectors. However, fluctuating energy outputs of renewable energy solutions pose as a barrier for growth of the ion exchange membrane market. This explains why the market for ion exchange membranes is estimated to progress at a sluggish CAGR of 3.5%. Hence, manufacturers are innovating through alkaline metal-air batteries integrated with AEMs to improve stability of electrical grids.
Cation exchange membranes and AEMs are acquiring prominence in zinc-air battery applications. As such, cation exchange membranes are predicted to dictate the second-highest revenue among all charge types in the market landscape. Various advantages of AEMs such as minimizing zincate ion permeation toward the air electrode are generating incremental opportunities for companies in the ion exchange membrane market. Apart from zinc-air batteries, manufacturers are increasing the applicability of cation exchange membranes and AEMs in vanadium redox flow batteries.
Manufacturers Gain Strong Business Grounds in Europe through Definitive Agreements
Companies in the ion exchange membrane market are focusing on inorganic strategies such as partnerships to gain market penetration. For instance, in May 2029, CAPLINQ— a specialty chemicals company, announced to enter a definitive agreement with the global leader of ion exchange materials, Ionomr, to become the latter’s ‘European Market Partner’ to promote Ionomr products. Thus, strategic partnerships are fueling production activities in the ion exchange membrane market, which is estimated to reach an output of ~8,900 square meters by the end of 2027.
