Market Overview

The supercapacitors market is anticipated to value at USD 450 million in 2019 with a CAGR of 14.1% during the forecast period (2019 -2024).

  • The changes in regulations, concerning environmental safety standards, may supplement the growth of the market studied in the transportation and consumer electronics segments. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has increased the per gallon standards to 35.5 mpg in 2016, and then to 54.5 mpg by 2025. 
  • The transportation industry has given a significant boost to the market studied, in the recent times, owing to the exclusive demand from electric vehicle manufacturers, especially in the developed economies, like China, the United States, Japan, and France, among others.
  • New market opportunities, like smart grids and alternate energy sources, can be adequately captured by supercapacitors. They are known to operate in a wide temperature range, thereby enhancing usability. Moreover, substitute products, like batteries, are facing a reasonably hostile ecology and trade restrictions, which may increase the penetration of supercapacitors in the market.

Scope of the Report

Supercapacitors are the enhanced variant traditional capacitors that can store large amounts of energy (10-100 times more energy per unit mass, as compared to electrolytic capacitors). They have unique features, such as high power density and cyclability, which are currently not matched by any other energy storage devices in the market. Type of capacitors such as Double Layer Capacitors, Pseudo Capacitors, and Hybrid Capacitors are considered in the scope of the market

Key Market Trends

Utilities to Hold a Significant Share

  • Utilities are one of the critical markets for supercapacitors. With the rising energy concerns and increasing technological advancement, the adoption of supercapacitors is witnessing a surge, especially in the emerging economies.
  • Their applications, like generator bridging, ramping and regulation, primary frequency response, and voltage sag mitigation, are also providing a grid or microgrid monitoring and stabilization.
  • In September 2018, Maxwell Technologies announced a grid energy storage subsystem design-in with Siemens, to deliver economical, fast-responding, long-life grid voltage and frequency support solutions.
  • According to US Energy Storage Monitor Utility, scale energy storage is a nascent, but rapidly growing market and is expected to reach over USD 1 billion by 2020, in the United States alone; hence, offering a massive market to target for supercapacitors.
  • Supercapacitors are also gaining traction to protect CMOS logic and power electronic toys. Security alarm systems, Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems, and solar power are other typical applications.
