High Temperature Capacitor: Introduction
- High temperature capacitors provide stable electric performance at high temperatures i.e. above 175 degree Celsius
- At such high temperature, these capacitors sustain thermal shock, cracking, and thermal cycling solder joint fatigue as well as ensure a long operating life
- High temperature capacitors offer ultra-low ESR with efficient ripple and inrush current capability. Therefore, they are largely preferred in avionics and oil & gas industry to withstand high humidity and dust as well as shock and vibration.
- Ceramic and tantalum are currently replacing film capacitors for temperature range above 150 degree Celsius to achieve high temperature ratings
Rising Demand for High Temperature Capacitors in Oil & Gas and Automotive Sectors
- High temperature capacitors have always been used in downhole electronics applications. Oil & gas is expected to be the most attractive industry for the high temperature capacitor market during the forecast period owing to increased need to drill deeper and explore hostile locations.
- Besides the automotive sector, demand for high temperature capacitors is rising significantly due to the outlook for electrical aircrafts in the avionics industry. With power electronics replacing hydraulic systems in aircrafts, high temperature capacitors are anticipated to find numerous applications in their electric braking systems, landing systems, motor controls, etc.
North America to Lead the High Temperature Capacitor Market
- In terms of region, the global high temperature capacitor market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America.
- North America comprises the largest market share owing to high demand for high temperature capacitors in Measurement While Drilling (MWD) tools, logging tools, and product monitoring tools in the oil & gas industry
- Europe has the second largest share of the high temperature capacitor market due to increased utilization of high temperature capacitors in automotive electronics in engine, transmission, and brake systems for transmission temperature range between 200 to 250 degree Celsius. Furthermore, the region is witnessing increased penetration of high temperature capacitors in avionics power electronics applications to withstand extensive thermal cycling over a long operating life.
- The high temperature capacitor market in Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa is also expected to expand at a significant rate owing to its high demand in automotive and oil & gas applications in the respective regions
