Global Polystyrene Capacitors Market – Introduction

Polystyrene capacitors are capacitors that have a dielectric material made of polystyrene and electrodes made of aluminum foil. These capacitors are used in applications wherein high precision and high reliability are required. For a long time, polystyrene capacitors has been a preferred choice of manufacturers of audiophiles and high-end audio. This is attributable to their electric characteristics which are suitable for audio applications.

Polystyrene capacitors are characterized by high insulation, low leakage, low dielectric absorption, low distortion, and excellent temperature stability. They can be used as an alternative for silver mica and/or ceramic disc capacitors in some applications. One of the important features of polystyrene capacitors is low dielectric absorption associated with them, which is reflected only in professional, instrumentation-type, sample-and-hold applications. These capacitors usually have low capacitance values and a negative temperature coefficient of −125 parts per million per degree Celsius.

Global Polystyrene Capacitors Market – Dynamics

Rising Demand for Polystyrene Capacitors to Fuel Market

Growth of the global polystyrene capacitors market can be attributed to high demand for efficient polystyrene capacitors for use in high-precision applications. Polystyrene capacitors witness high demand, particularly from audio makers. As a result, the global polystyrene capacitors market is likely to expand at a significant pace in the next few years.

Incapability for Surface Mounting to Hamper Global Polystyrene Capacitors Market

Due to their specific benefits, polystyrene capacitors witness high demand for use in specific, high-frequency applications. However, polystyrene capacitors cannot be surface mounted and they are available only for through-hole installations. The surface mount technology is preferred currently and it has become an installation method of choice for most of the electronic components in a circuitry. Thus, incapability of polystyrene capacitors for use in surface mounting applications is likely to hinder the global polystyrene capacitors market during the forecast period.
