Ultracapacitor Market By Application (Consumer Electronics, Telecommunication, Industrial, Energy & Utilities, Automotive & Transportation, Others) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2019 -2027

"Large Benefit of Ultracapacitor over Batteries will spur the Market Growth during the Forecast Period."

The global ultracapacitor market was valued at US$ 1.52 Bn in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 7.93 Bn by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 20.2% during the forecast from 2019 to 2027.

An ultracapacitor is an electrostatic energy storage device that stores energy by polarizing the electrolytic solution. The device is gaining momentum in the present and coming years due to the rise in energy consumption regulations and increasing preference for renewable energy over fossil fuels. Its benefits over traditional batteries, such as high efficiency, small charging & discharging time, and capability to work in extreme temperatures, make them more preferable for wind turbine, hybrid electric vehicles, and other diverse applications. As per Maxwell Technologies Inc., the company deployed more than 65 Mn ultracapacitor cells for various stationary and mobile applications globally.

Market Synopsis

"Consumer Electronics led the Global Ultracapacitor Market in the year 2018."

In 2018, the consumer electronics segment dominated the global ultracapacitor market with nearly 50% revenue share. The robust growth of the segment is majorly attributed to the proliferation of smartphones in Asian countries such as China, India, and Brazil. In addition, shifting consumer trends towards smart devices, including smart watches, smart glasses, e-papers, and other smart electronics, has uplifted the market growth to an impressive level.

The Automotive & transportation segment seeks significant growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing preference for Hybrid Electric vehicles (HEV). Chasing problems of air pollution and other environmental concerns have proliferated the adoption of HEV. They also keep company with fuel consumption laws and regulations. In the wake of further advancements in HEV, an ultracapacitor is used against batteries to improve their fuel economy by 15-30%. Furthermore, the low cost of the ultracapacitor is another prime factor for its profound market growth in the automotive sector.

Regional Analysis

"Asia Pacific garnered the largest revenue share of the Global Ultracapacitor Market in 2018."

The Asia Pacific accounted for the majority of the revenue share in the global ultracapacitor market for 2018. In addition, the region is expected to grow considerably during the forecast period. The Asia Pacific was the most dynamic region in the consumer electronics segment from 2010-2015, and the same trend continued during the forecast period from 2019-2027. This is mainly due to the region's overwhelming growth in percent household and annual disposable income.

In addition, Asia Pacific is anticipated to lead the automotive ultracapacitor market during the forecast period from 2019-2027. This is mainly due to the high production rate of passenger vehicles in countries such as Japan, China, and South Korea. However, North America and Europe accounted for a significant share in the global ultracapacitor market owing to pioneer developers of innovative automotive products.
