Global Market for Supercapacitors Set to Reach $2.18 Billion by 2024 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

November 6, 2019 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2019--

The “Supercapacitors Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 - 2024)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global supercapacitors market was valued at USD 685 million in 2018, and it is expected to reach USD 2,187 million by 2024, registering a CAGR of 21.8%, during the period of 2019-2024.

With the ability of quick charging and temperature stability, supercapacitors are replacing traditional electric car batteries. Additionally, supercapacitors are flexible than normal batteries, and high demand for stable power supply for applications, such as GPS, portable media players, laptops, mobile devices, etc., is an emerging trend in the market.

Increasing demand for renewable energy solutions is driving the market. The supercapacitor is an emerging technology for various energy storage systems, as it can offer higher power density than batteries and higher energy density over traditional capacitors.

Solar PV panels and solar lighting are potential areas where supercapacitors are growing. In general, solar panels are used in both modes, online as well as offline, for which supercapacitors are reliable options. With a conservative forecast of 40% penetration of supercapacitors by 2020, the demand in this sector is estimated to touch around 416,000 units.

Increasing production of supercapacitor-based vehicles owing to environmental concerns is driving the market. Climate change and greenhouse gases have proven to be global menaces, which affect crop cycles, weather systems, and entire ecosystems. With environment-friendliness being a priority, there is heightened awareness among the users of energy storage equipment about minimizing emissions.

Major technology companies are pacing up their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, indicating market growth for alternative energy technologies. Among all energy storage devices, supercapacitors cause the least environmental damage. All materials used in an electrochemical double-layer capacitor are made of some form of readily biodegradable carbon.

Higher costs associated with the products is restraining the market to grow. The comparison between a supercapacitor and a traditional battery begins with the price. Although the two technologies are not entirely comparable, end-users expect the price of a supercapacitor to be at par with that of a lead-acid battery to consider it as an economically viable technology.

High power density results in a niche application base for the technology. Supercapacitors have, therefore, failed to achieve the kind of economies of scale, necessary for a drastic reduction in price.
