About the Report

The supercapacitors or ultracapacitors market is driven by growing demand for smart grids and microgrids has increased the demand for supercapacitors to reduce power outages and improve power quality (frequency regulation, Peak demand, and voltage sag). Additionally, the growing demand for supercapacitors to reduce power surges from external environmental conditions such as lighting and also helps to operate the start and stop of the motor or engine, and speed regulation has increased the demand from distributed automations (IOT) in industries, medical, wind power plants and electric vehicles are driving the market of supercapacitors.


Increased demand for supercapacitors in automotive applications has been a major factor driving the growth of the supercapacitor market. Supercapacitors are suitable for automotive applications due to their long shelf life, high power density, and fast charging capabilities. In addition, favorable government regulations and the rising demand for renewable energy systems are also expected to boost the market growth. Furthermore, the steady rise in gasoline prices worldwide has led governments to enact regulations that encourage environmentally friendly, fuel-efficient transportation.


The supercapacitor is an advanced technology for various energy storage systems, which has improved power density over batteries and higher energy density than conventional capacitors. Solar PV panels and solar lighting are two possible areas where supercapacitors grow rapidly. In addition, there is a greater awareness among users of energy storage equipment about reducing emissions due to environmental concerns.


A supercapacitor or ultracapacitor is an electronic device that stores electric energy in two metal plates coated with activated carbon and is immersed in an electrolyte made of positive and negative ions dissolved in a solvent.


A surge in consumers' expectations, along with an increase in demand for consumer electronic products, has resulted in the need for a rapid and stable supply of energy, which has created a market for supercapacitors.


Supercapacitors are used for regenerative braking and burst-mode power delivery or short-term energy storage for cranes, trains, buses, cars, elevators, hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), forklifts, shovel trucks, agricultural machinery, excavators, mining shovels, harbor cranes, and industrial lasers.


Smaller units of supercapacitors are used as memory backup for static random-access memory (SRAM). Moreover, supercapacitors are also used in solar power applications, batteries, battery backup, and flashlights.


It provides a steady electricity supply by utilizing the charge accumulated in its electrochemical layers. It is a type of capacitor that can hold a lot of charges, typically 10 to 100 times the charge per unit mass compared to electrolytic capacitors.


Supercapacitors are superior to conventional batteries because they provide stable power, handle more fluctuations and discharges, and operate at a wide variety of temperatures. Therefore, they are commonly used in smartphones, laptops, electronic devices, and automobiles that require rapid charging to function.


Batteries and Super Capacitors are used as supplements in electronic devices and can also be used for short-term back-up power, as supercapacitor circuits offer fast charging ability.


The increasing utilization of supercapacitors by the utility sector is acting as another growth-inducing factor. In microgrid monitoring and stabilization, they are commonly used for ramping, generator bridging, regulation, primary frequency response, and voltage sag mitigation.
