The market is segmented, by type, into planar, and tubular. The planar segment held the largest solid oxide fuel cell market share in 2021. 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.
