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

Key Market Insights

"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 the year 2018 and expected to reach US$ 7.93 Bn by the year 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 20.2% during the forecast from 2019 to 2027.

Ultracapacitor is an electrostatic energy storage device that stores energy by polarizing the electrolytic solution. The device is gaining momentum in present and coming years due to 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.

Application Analysis

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

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

Automotive & transportation segment seeks significant growth during the forecast period owing to increasing preference for Hybrid Electric Vehicle (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 advancement in HEV, ultracapacitor is used against batteries to improve their fuel economy by 15-30%. Furthermore, low cost of ultracapacitor is another prime factor for its profound market growth in the automotive sector.
