Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are the type of fuel cells which can convert electrochemical fuel to electricity with negligible pollution. The market for solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is majorly backed by the increasing adoption for SOFCs to provide off-grid power solution, especially in countries such as Japan and South Korea. Factors such as technical advantages of SOFCs over other types of fuel cells have led to the growing demand for SOFCs in various applications. Furthermore, growing government support and investments towards the technology are further expected to fuel the growth in the overall SOFC market.
The overall solid oxide fuel cells market is still in its nascent stage with existence of several untapped applications. The most prominent concern for the industry growth is the high cost of manufacturing and elongated time for charging up. SOFCs are extensively being used for power generation as it acts a clean source of energy. Due to their higher efficiency as compared to other fuel cells, SOFCs stand the most lucrative chance for further development in the coming years. Subsequently, the market has emerged highly dynamic over the period of time. Some of the major companies operating in the market include FuelCell Energy Solutions, Kyocera Corporation, Ceres Power Holdings Plc., Atrex Energy, Doosan Fuel Cell, Dominovas Energy Corporation and Delphi Automotive Systems LLC among others.
