Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Market by Type (Planar, Tubular, Others), Application (Large Stationary, Small Stationary, Transportation, Portable & Military), Geography - Global Trends & Forecast to 2018

Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) is a device that produces electricity by electrochemical conversion. In this type of a device, the fuel is directly oxidized in the cell which makes it easy to operate and therefore can be used anywhere. The SOFC technology is very important as these can be employed for various purposes such as transportation and military operations, because of its smart and portable design. These cells are categorized on the basis of the type of technology employed in them, planar, tubular, and others. Some of its properties give the technology a competitive edge over other power sources. It is highly efficient, makes for a low cost power source, and has long-term stability. The cells operate on a variety of fuels, so the availability is never a concern for the user. When working on hydrogen, the cells generate water as a by-product and there are no other emissions. SOFC is gaining more importance across the globe, because of the increasing demand for clean energy due to depleting fossil reserves. The SOFC market is experiencing growth as a result of the growing awareness and demand for zero emission power sources.
