North America is estimated to be the largest solid oxide fuel cell market in 2019. The region has been segmented, by country, into US and Canada. US is the largest and fastest growing market in the region. The growth in this country can be attributed to the high demand for fuel cell power generation, as well as increasing research and development for hydrogen generation. In addition, government policies and subsidies, including the Department of Energy's (DoE's) Solid State Energy Conversion Alliance (SECA) Program, are the prime driving factors for growth in the US market.

The market is segmented, by type, into planar, and tubular. The planar segment held the largest solid oxide fuel cell market share in 2019. The market for planar segment is driven by 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. As its construction is relatively simple, it is the most commonly used solid oxide fuel cell type.

The market is segmented, by application, into portable, stationary and transport. In terms of value, the stationary held the largest share in 2019 as it is driven by the increasing focus on hydrogen-powered fuel cells for back-up power.

Challenge High operating temperatures and start-up time of SOFC

SOFC require a longer duration for starting up operation when compared to other fuel cell technologies. Being a high-temperature technology, SOFC require time to reach a critical operating temperature to function at full capacity, thus contributing to higher start-up time. In addition, the operation of an SOFC releases a high amount of heat into the surrounding, which significantly increases the need for good thermal shielding, ultimately increasing its weight. These are the main reasons why SOFC have a low market share in portable applications and emergency power applications. The development of SOFC systems with lower start-up times is still in the initial stage. Currently, companies such as SOLIDPower, Sunfire, and Bloom Energy are investing in R&D to overcome the technical challenges associated with SOFC.
