Global Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Market, 2022-2027 – Increasing Adoption by End-users in Data Centers and Military Sector Creates Opportunities –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Market by Type (Planar & Tubular), Application (Portable, Stationary, & Transport), End User (Commercial & Industrial, Data Centers, Military & Defense, and Residential ) and Region – Forecasts to 2027” report has been added to’s offering.

The solid oxide fuel cell market size will grow to USD 6.5 billion by 2027 from USD 1.5 billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 33.9 % during the forecast period. The global solid oxide fuel cell market is driven by the government subsidies and increased R&D on fuel cell programs; fuel flexibility and increasing demand for energy-efficient power generation and stringent emission. Rising distributed power generation applications across regions and increasing adaptivity by end users in data centers and military sectors are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the solid oxide fuel cell market during the forecast period.

The planar segment, by product type, is expected to be the largest market from 2022 to 2027

The planar segment held the largest share of the solid oxide fuel cell market. The growth is evident owing to the simple geometry and relatively easier construction process. Planar type of solid oxide fuel cells is typically designed in such a way that the ceramic fuel cell modules are arranged one above the other in a sandwich-type design with the electrolyte inserted between the electrodes.

The Stationary segment, by application is expected to be the largest market from 2022 to 2027

The stationary segment of the market, by application, is estimated to be the largest during the forecast period. The growth of the stationary segment is driven by the increasing focus on hydrogen-powered fuel cells for back-up power. The market for the stationary segment in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the fact that the governments of South Korea, China, and Japan are highly focusing on utilizing renewable energy and hence opting for utility-scale SOFC power plant.

Asia Pacific: The largest region in the solid oxide fuel cell market

Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global solid oxide fuel cell market between 2022-2027. The region has been segmented, by country, into Japan, China, South Korea and the rest of Asia Pacific. The Rest of Asia Pacific includes Australia, and India. The region faces a tough challenge to reduce its carbon footprint from various fossil-fuel-powered operations, including power generation. Asia Pacific is one of the leading markets that has adopted green technologies to meet the targets set by the governments for reducing GHG emissions. Furthermore, countries such as Japan and South Korea are increasing their investments to adopt SOFC technology.
