Supercapacitor Market - Snapshot

Supercapacitor refers to a storage device of electrochemical energy that is capable of releasing as well as storing energy through desorption and reversible adsorption of ions at interfaces lying between electrolytes and electrode materials. These capacitors are also known by another name ultracapacitors and they are able to store around 10 to 100 times more power than normal electrolytic capacitors. These capacitors find wide use for the purpose of quick charge and discharge, thanks to its ability to show zero resistance. All these factors are estimated to support development of the global supercapacitor market in the years to come.  

Huge development in the storage technology is likely to play an important role in the development of the global supercapacitor market. In addition to that, emergence of market segments like renewable energy systems, smart grids, and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) are expected to drive the demand for these supercapacitors. The ability of supercapacitors to give power during emergency shutdown or to provide backup to equipment with low power, such as PC cards, micro-controllers, SRAM, and RAM are likely to make them a popular choice.

Solar lighting and Solar PV models are two of the rapidly growing areas of applications for supercapacitors. Furthermore, solar panels find utilization in both offline and online modes and supercapacitors are considered a highly reliable option for such modes of operation. Increasing demand for solar energy is expected to trigger growth of the global supercapacitor market over the timeframe of analysis.

Rapid development in the infrastructure and industrialization in developing countries of Asia Pacific are likely to generate demand for automotives and various electronic goods. Flourishing business of automotives in India and China are likely to generate huge demand for these supercapacitors. In addition, hybrid buses, railways also play an important role in the expansion of the global supercapacitor market in the forthcoming years.

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research titled “Supercapacitors Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2018 – 2026,” the global supercapacitors market is expected to reach US$ 5.979.67 Mn by 2026. The market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 15.24% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. According to the report, the global supercapacitors market will continue to be influenced by a range of factors such as environment regulations in regions such as North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.
