Drivers: The rise in demand for fuel cell vehicles

The adoption of fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) is expected to increase in the near future, owing to the absence of CO2 emissions during vehicle operations. Thus, automotive manufacturers are investing considerably to incorporate fuel cell vehicles in their product offerings. FCVs can convert hydrogen stored on the vehicle via fuel cells into electricity to power the electric motor. The growth in the fuel cell vehicle segment would complement the increase in the adoption of hydrogen detection solutions. Hydrogen detection solutions are an effective method of detecting hydrogen leaks.

Challenge:Intense pricing pressure results in a decline in average selling prices

The widespread applications of hydrogen sensors lead to increased shipments of these sensors; the sales growth is significantly restrained by price erosion. This is partially a result of the intense competition among the rising number of sensor manufacturers. Several companies are channeling their research and development activities toward providing cost-effective sensor solutions that use MEMS technology and developing IoT-compatible sensors. This results in pricing pressure, especially for applications where sensors are used in high volume. Consequently, manufacturers are compelled to decrease the potential price of sensors. While the reduction in ASP benefits consumers, it shrinks suppliers' profit margins. Thus, intense pricing pressure results in a fall in the average selling price (ASP), hampers revenue growth in the highly competitive market.
