Hydrogen fuel cell technology is set to grow as governments around the world get serious about solving the climate change problem. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), global CO2 emissions have decreased by 5.8% in 2020 but are projected to increase by 4.8% in 2021 as demand for coal, oil, and gas recovers alongside the economy. As a result, governments across the world are making efforts to invest in and produce more energy from renewable sources such as hydrogen, solar, wind, and geothermal.

Hydrogen cell fuel is a clean fuel that can be used to generate electricity for a variety of applications such as electric cars, buildings, electronic devices, trucks, and backup power systems. Some of the most popular hydrogen fuel cell companies are Bloom Energy Corporation (NYSE:BE), FuelCell Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:FCEL), Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ:PLUG), Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI), and Ballard Power Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:BLDP).

According to a report, the global hydrogen fuel cell market was valued at $2.5 billion in 2020 and is forecasted to reach $13.8 billion by 2026, increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 33.1% over that period. One of the catalysts driving the growth in the hydrogen fuel cell market is the demand for electric vehicles. According to a market report published by Allied Market Research, the hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle market was valued at $652 million in 2018 and is expected to grow to $42 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 66.9%. Among the biggest car manufacturers that develop hydrogen fuel cell-powered electric vehicles include Toyota Motor Corporation (NYSE:TM), Honda Motor Co., Ltd. (NYSE:HMC), and Hyundai Motor Company (OTC:HYMTF).

Industrial gas distributor Linde plc (NYSE:LIN) is also a significant player in the hydrogen fuel cell market. The U.K.-based gas company builds and supplies hydrogen refueling stations globally. Linde plc (NYSE:LIN) also started building the world's first hydrogen refueling station for passenger trains in Germany last year, which is set to operate in early 2022. Linde plc (NYSE:LIN) shares are up 12.3%, year to date.
