Capacitor Market Size Projected to Reach USD 58.67 billion by 2031, With 6.4% CAGR | Transparency Market Research, Inc.

The need for capacitors is rising due to a variety of electronic equipment, such as computer motherboards, switching mode power supply, inverter main circuits, and control circuits.

Wilmington, Delaware, United States, Nov. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Transparency Market Research Inc. - The global capacitor market was estimated at a value of US$ 31.7 billion in 2021. It is anticipated to register a 6.4% CAGR from 2022 to 2031 and by 2031, the market is likely to attain US$ 58.67 billion by 2031.

One of the key reasons that is anticipated to propel the capacitor market in the coming years is the growing demand for capacitors from the consumer electronics industry. In order to satisfy the demands of contemporary society, portable consumer electronics, such as mobile phones and cameras, are developing quickly.

Capacitors are becoming more wearable, lighter, thinner, flexible, and tiny. Supercapacitors have the benefit of high-speed energy discharge, which makes them desirable power supply for portable electronic devices, and they can store almost as much energy as batteries.

Key Findings of the Market Report

  • The global capacitor market is segmented into various product categories, encompassing multilayer ceramic capacitors, silicon capacitors, vacuum capacitors, paper/film capacitors, tantalum capacitors, and other types like electrolytic capacitors and supercapacitors.
  • As of 2021, the multilayer ceramic capacitor segment held the largest market share compared to other categories.
  • Multilayer ceramic capacitors are renowned for their reliability and reasonable pricing, making them highly suitable for a diverse array of applications, notably in RF and audio systems.
  • These capacitors typically exhibit values ranging between 0.1 microfarads to a few picofarads.

Market Trends for Capacitors

  • The global capacitor is divided into two mounting types: through-hole and surface mounted. One important form of capacitor installation is surface mounted, and high-volume production uses a lot of these capacitors.
  • These days, pick and place devices may be used to insert tiny, leadless capacitors on printed circuit boards. Any surface-mounted capacitor's main job is to charge and discharge electrical energy, or store and replenish electrical energy.
  • Omni Pro Electronics released the NAZR Series of aluminum electrolytic capacitors with surface mount technology in April 2022. The series provides power electronics applications up to 100 vdc and can be utilized in communication infrastructure.
