Market introduction of small or micro fuel cells is expected within the next couple of years for the high-end market, and solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) present one of the promising technology options for a whole range of applications. According to "RGB-282 Solid Oxide Fuel Cells," a soon-to-be-released report from Business Communications Co., Inc. (BCC), the global market for SOFCs is currently estimated at $123 million. The North American SOFC market is estimated to be around $67 million, or 55% of the market.

The global market is forecast to reach $335 million by 2008 with an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 22.2% through the forecast period.
