Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Market Size [2021-2028] Worth USD 5.31 Billion by 2028 | Increasing Need to Reduce Carbon Emissions and High Energy Demand to Boost Growth

Tuesday, August 30, 2022 at 5:16am UTC

Pune, India, Aug. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global solid oxide fuel cell market is driven by the rise in demand for clean and efficient energy sources. SOFCs offer a number of advantages over traditional fuel cells, including higher efficiency, longer life, and lower emissions. As per the report, the solid oxide fuel cell market size USD 0.90 billion in 2020. It is projected to grow from USD 1.09 billion in 2021 to USD 5.31 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 25.3% during the forecast period, states Fortune Business Insights in its recently published "Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Market Forecast Report.

Below are the two Industry Developments:

  • October 2020: Ceres Power Holdings plc signed license and collaboration agreements with Doosan Fuel Cell Co., Ltd to develop a mass manufacturing facility for solid oxide fuel cell stacks with an initial capacity of 50MW by 2024 in South Korea.
  • November 2020: SK Engineering and Construction and Bloom Energy bagged a competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) to deliver solid oxide fuel cells powered by 100% electrolyzes and hydrogen to an industrial complex in Korea.

Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Demand for Clean Power Sources to Accelerate Growth

The emergence of low carbon technologies and the increasing concerns to eliminate toxic carbon emissions would propel the solid oxide fuel cell market growth in the upcoming years. Various countries worldwide have put forward new objectives and goals to keep up with the high demand for energy. They are hence striving to generate clean power sources, thereby encouraging companies to adopt solid oxide fuel cells.

As per the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) Global Energy Review 2021, the usage of clean energy surged by 3% in 2020. Also, the generation of electricity from renewable sources grew by 7%. However, the availability of alternative and efficient fuel cell technologies, especially phosphoric acid fuel cells (PAFC) and proton-exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) may obstruct demand.

Proactive Government Policies to Enhance Market Potential

Rising government investments in promoting the adoption of advanced clean energy systems is anticipated to be one of the leading solid oxide fuel cell market trends. For example, the US Department of Energy reported that in 2019, USD 30 million were allotted to fund the fuel cell R&D sub-program in order to lower the costs of producing energy-efficient devices.

Furthermore, governments across the globe are taking proactive steps to reduce their carbon footprint. This has prompted many private organizations to undertake solid measures to decrease their dependency on hydrocarbons and fossil fuels. Lastly, government intervention through tax exemptions and subsidies have reduced the overall manufacturing costs of such technologies, which augurs well for the SOFC market.
