Key Market Drivers & Trends: 

One of the key factors driving growth in the fuel cells for the military unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) market is the high investment in the military unmanned aircraft domain. Various governments throughout the world are heavily investing in the defense sector to ensure that it has sufficient technological capabilities and modern vehicles to face any external threats. This has attracted several countries to enter agreements including the purchase of advanced vehicles and ammunition. The development of fuel cells for UAVs has been successful because of constant technological advancements and participation from numerous industry experts.

Another reason helping the fuel cells for military unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) market share rise is the introduction of Formira Hydrogen-on-Demand technology. In this process, formic acid is moved from the tank to a reformer, where hydrogen is produced. The stack consumes the hydrogen created almost immediately. It is not kept at any point during the process, which makes it safer and less flammable. This technique is intended to transform the fuel cell industry and its applications.
