Ceramic Disc Capacitor Market Introduction

Ceramic disc capacitors are usually designed by silver coating on both sides act as an electrode which has a capacitance value between 10pF to 100μF. The ceramic disc capacitor functions as a dielectric and an electrode. Furthermore, for low-level capacitance, a single layer ceramic disc coated with silver is generally used while for high-level capacitance, multiple layer ceramic disc capacitor is used.

Ceramic disc capacitors are mostly utilized with ceramic technology for high consistency and extended life in various applications which includes TV and monitors, DC power supply, and X-ray equipment for power electronics. However, the growing demand for disc capacitors is not limited to only consumer electronics; it is also witnessed in other applications such as data processing, medical facilities, industrial and military, and telecommunications that demand high reliability.
