Global Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Market 2016-2020

An SOFC is a fuel cell that produces electricity through an electrochemical process. SOFCs offer low emissions, long-term stability, high efficiency, and fuel flexibility. The excellent fuel flexibility of the devices permit the use of safe, cheap, and readily available fuels such as hydrocarbons, natural gas, hydrogen, methanol, and syngas. SOFCs, however, require a high operating temperature, usually within the range of 500°C-1,000°C for the activation of the electrolyte. These high operating temperatures lead to mechanical and chemical compatibility issues and result in longer start-up times. The analysts forecast global SOFC market to grow at a CAGR of 9.78% during the period 2016-2020. Covered in this report The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of......

Global Electric Insulator Market 2016-2020

Electric insulators are essential components of transmission and distribution (T&D) lines. They play a crucial role in preventing the flow of electric current down to the earth through supporting points between the transmission line and tower. There are three types of electric insulators based on the materials used for their production — ceramic, glass, and composite. Ceramic insulators have higher market penetration than other insulators. These insulators are generally used for high-voltage applications. Composite insulators are also gaining ground due to increased application in outdoor installations, predominantly by electric power utilities. They are lightweight and exhibit favorable features such as high mechanical strength and resistance power, consistent performance in harsh......
