The global microbial fuel cell market is likely to register strong growth during the 2021-2028 periods, thanks to the growing demand for key applications including power generation, wastewater treatment, and growing new opportunities in healthcare, and education sector. According to the US energy department, the year 2016 became a game-changer for growth for fuel cell technology. This year, Home Depot installed fuel cell technology in more than 140 sites of its countrywide reach. According to the company’s press release, the company generated more than 138 million kWh of clean energy since 2014 with the usage of fuel cells, saving it 31,000,000 gallons of water. The growth has more than tripled since 2016 in the business world. For example, Plug Power Inc., a supplier of hydrogen fuel cells shipped more than 32,000 fuel cells in 2020, tripling its sales from five years ago. Furthermore, companies like IKEA, and EBay have installed fuel cell technology at their stores, and data centers. Furthermore, over 15,000 fuel cell-operated forklifts remained in operation in 2016, according to the US Department of Energy. The use of microbial fuel cells in combination with biofilms promises even higher energy outputs as compared to conventional hydrogen-based fuel cells. For example, the MFCs convert energy with far more efficiency and can reach 60% efficiency in fuel consumption in vehicles. On the other hand, conventional energy reaches 20% to 33% in practical applications, due to barriers like Carnot efficiency. The MFCs also promise 8 times more energy efficiency for conventional hydrogen cells promising robust growth for its practical application in areas like biosensors, monitoring, and evaluation.

Wastewater Treatment to Remain a Key Driver of Growth in the Global MFC Market
According to the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) of the United States, pollutants, and their impact on the environment remains a grave concern today. The agency estimated that 53% river, and stream miles, 80% of estuarine square miles, and 71% of lake acres, and 98% great lakes shorelines remain in impaired condition. According to the EPA, this makes them unacceptable for one or more application or designated use. Furthermore, 19% households in the United States are not served by public sewers, and are reliant on septic tanks to treat, and dispose wastewater. This creates a danger of contaminating groundwater, and surface water reservoir in the near future. According to a study published by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), the microbial fuel cell technology promises to be a sustainable high-value recovery solution for waste water treatment. According to the report, the technology enables direct recovery of electric energy, and value-added products. Moreover, it also offers good effluent quality and low environmental footprint, and meets key needs like real-time monitoring, and control for good operating stability. Furthermore, the technology offers key advantages of efficiency in removal of aqueous contaminants. For example, according to the RSC study, the process helps efficient removal of metals, sulphur compounds, nutrients, and recalcitrant organics, among others with effluent quality – COD < 20 mg L−1. the scaling up of the technology remains a key challenge for growth for players in the global microbial fuel cells market, as large water surfaces mandate heavy use in industry-related applications. Despite the challenge, the efficiency, and value-added of the technology promises strong growth for players in the 2021-2028 period.
