    Segment Analysis

    By Material Type

    The electric capacitor market is segmented as film capacitors, ceramic capacitors, electrolytic capacitors, and others. Film capacitors are expected to register constant growth in the market during the forecast period on account of their increasing use in automotive electronic units due to their high voltage handling capability. Electrolytic capacitors, on the other hand, are estimated to witness significant growth in the market, as a result of ongoing advancements in the electric mobility sector, fuelling the overall industry growth over the forecast period.

    By Polarization Type

    The market is segmented as polarized and non-polarized. Polarized electric capacitor is likely to register substantial growth in the market during the forecast period, owing to features such as high capacitance and the ability to handle heavy charge and discharge cycles, as well as quick delivery and charge storage. Non-polarized electric capacitor is estimated to witness significant growth in the market on account of its higher stability, lower current leakage, and lower losses at high frequencies.

    By Voltage Type

    The market is bifurcated into high, medium, and low. The low voltage segment is expected to witness high growth in the market over the forecast period. Increasing demand for consumer electronics, driven by rapid urbanization, coupled with gradually declining prices, is expected to drive the low voltage market. Furthermore, ongoing economic growth has resulted in an increase in global disposable income; the consequent increase in consumer income has escalated the demand for automobiles and consumer electronics, which, in turn, drives the overall industry growth. High voltage is estimated to register significant growth in the market over the forecast period, owing to increasing focus on minimizing the power system losses and ensuring efficient & continuous power supply.

    By End-Use Type

    The market is segmented as consumer electronics, automotive, communication & technology, transmission & distribution, and others. Consumer electronics is likely to register a high growth rate and account for the major share of the market during the forecast period owing to rising demand for smartphones, laptops, and digital camcorders, along with their short replacement cycles.

    Furthermore, the introduction of new technologies, such as 4K and OLED televisions, with diversifying electronic content and functionality, necessitates the need for increased energy density, capacitance, and bandwidth, thereby boosting product adoption.

    Regional Insights

    Asia-Pacific is expected to lead the market during the forecast period. The growth of the region’s market is owing to the robust manufacturing of consumer electronic products and rising consumer spending on electronic appliances in the region. Europe is expected to experience significant market growth over the forecast period as a result of a shift in focus toward energy-efficient technologies and government initiatives aimed at reducing emissions.
