Global market outlook for ultracapacitors

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global ultracapacitor market to reach a CAGR of over 20% during the period 2015 to 2019. Power utility segment mainly drives the growth of this market.

It is supported by the growing demand for ultracapacitors across many customer segments such as consumer electronics, power utilities, and transportation. Ultracapacitor vendors cater to industries that require heavy power supplies and help reduce their dependence on fossil fuels. 

What are ultracapacitors and how it is useful?

The ultracapacitor is an energy storing device. It is electro-chemical in nature and has a relatively high energy density as compared to other capacitors or batteries. This device exhibits a higher power capacity, improved lifecycle, and faster charging capability. An ultracapacitor is also known as electrical double-layer capacitor (EDLC). It does not possess a conventional dielectric, and instead carries two plates separated by an electrolyte.

Ultracapacitors offer significant advantages over regular batteries. As a result, segments that look for instant, reliable, and constant power supply are using this technology. The traditional lead-acid batteries lack capabilities need for rapid and deep-cycle power demands.

Market segmentation of global ultracapacitors market by applications

  • Consumer electronics   
  • Transportation segment              
  • Industrial manufacturing             
  • Energy sector   
  • Other sectors   

The use of regenerative braking systems is expected to propel the adoption of ultracapacitors in automobiles during the forecast period. Ultracapacitors are set to play a key role in future vehicles, to absorb kinetic energy from the vehicle while using it for propulsion later. The demand for ultracapacitors is expected to increase further as more prominent automobile companies start adopting this technology.
