This work evaluates the success of the application of proton-exchange membrane fuel cells for transportation with a focus on issues and areas for possible developments. Fuel cell technology when applied in road, air and water transportation and all the instances had contributed to the provision of a cleaner environment. The new technology, if developed, would meet the economic prospect of the people. If the cost of materials, labour and overhead could be reduced to make it affordable for the transportation sector. Other factors that could make the technology accessible to customers, such as performances and durability, infrastructural development, human factor and government policy, were critically analysed. This paper will provide comprehensive details and discussions on the above issue to show the current application and future developments of the PEM fuel cell in transportation.
