Global Supercapacitor Market: Snapshot

The global supercapacitor market is poised for outstanding growth in the upcoming years. Rising demand for alternative power supply for several application sectors such as automobiles and industrial due to depleting conventional fuels is stoking demand for supercapacitors for storing electrical energy. Door-lock systems, regenerative braking, and auto start-stop are some of the applications of supercapacitors for automotive.

Apart from this, advantages of longer lifecycle and low replacement cost are leading to increasing adoption of supercapacitors over batteries. Moreover, declining price of supercapacitor which has dropped to one-tenth in the last one decade is boosting their uptake over conventional batteries. Several governments such as in North America are supporting construction of supercapacitor plants thereby aiding the supercapacitor market.

However, high initial price of supercapacitor is limiting their adoption especially for low-value applications. Owing to the myriad factors driving demand for supercapacitor, the global supercapacitor market is likely to rise at an exceptional 22.4% CAGR from 2017 to 2023.


Ceaseless Adoption of Consumer Electronics makes it Top Ranking Application Segment

The global supercapacitor market is classified in terms of application, type, product, and geography. In terms of application, automotive and transportation, industrial, energy, consumer electronics, and others are the segments into which the supercapacitor market is divided. Among the various application segments, consumer electronics is currently the leading one; the segment is anticipated to retain its position through 2023. Declining prices of consumer electronics coupled with increasing demand for feature rich consumer electronics accounts for the leading share of consumer electronics application segment of the market. Thus, supercapacitor are predicted to display exponential demand from consumer electronics segment in the years ahead. The consumer electronics segment is predicted to display the leading CAGR between 2017 and 2023.

Energy is emerging as a prominent application segment due to vast demand for energy storage solutions in power generation plants. Vis-à-vis revenue, the energy segment is predicted to be worth US$0.81 bn by 2023.

By product, double layer, pseudocapacitors, and hybrid capacitors are the segments into which the global supercapacitor market is divided. The double layer segment held dominance in recent years; however, the segment is predicted to lose its dominance to account 37.9% of the market by 2023. Double layer supercapacitor has a voltage of 2.7V which is unsuitable for most applications.

On the other hand, pseudocapacitors hold prominence as they overcome shortcomings of double layer capacitors. As pseudocapacitors display capacity to hold as much charge as conventional battery, this makes them suitable for applications that require storing and discharging of energy at a faster rate.

In terms of type, supercapacitor module, weldable cell, and board mounted cell are the segments into which the supercapacitor market is segmented. Among them, board mounted supercapacitor segment is predicted to dominate the supercapacitor market owing to its extensive application in an array of consumer electronics, automotive, and medical devices. Board mounted cell display high performance along with supporting a wide temperature range from –40 ?C to +65 ?C. Board mounted cell segment is likely to hold the leading 42% of the overall market by 2023.
