Electric Double Layer Capacitors Market Report

According to Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors Market Report, the EDLC super capacitors market will be worth over $11 billion in ten years. This broad-ranging report on supercapacitors and supercabatteries has up to date ten year forecasts and analysis of market, applications, technology, patent and profit trends and the manufacturers and researchers involved.


55% of the manufacturers and intending manufacturers of supercapacitors/supercabatteries (EDLC, AEDLC) are in East Asia, 28% are in North America but Europe is fast asleep at only 7%. Yet, being used for an increasing number of purposes in electric vehicles, mobile phones, energy harvesting, renewable energy and other products of the future, this market is roaring up to over $11 billion in ten years with considerable upside potential.


This report concerns Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors (EDLCs). For brevity, we mainly use the second most popular word for them – supercapacitors. The third most popular term for them – ultracapacitors – is often used in heavy electrical applications. Included in the discussion and forecasts are so-called Asymmetric Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors (AEDLCs) better known as supercabatteries. The report also features patent trends of supercapacitor technologies.


Supercapacitors are a curiously neglected aspect of electronics and electrical engineering with a multi-billion dollar market rapidly emerging. For example, for land, water and airborne electric vehicles, there are about 200 serious traction motor manufacturers and 110 serious traction battery suppliers compared to just a few supercapacitor manufacturers. In all, there are no more than 66 significant supercapacitor manufacturers with most concentrating on the easier small ones for consumer electronics such as power backup. However, in a repetition of the situation with rechargeable batteries, the largest part of the market has just become the heavy end, notably for electric and conventional vehicles.


Supercapacitors and supercabatteries mainly have properties intermediate between those of batteries and traditional capacitors but they are being improved more rapidly than either. That includes improvement in cost and results in them not just being used to enhance batteries but even replacing batteries and capacitors in an increasing number of applications from renewable energy down to microscopic electronics. For example, your mobile phone may have better sound and flash that works at ten times the distance because a supercapacitor has taken over these functions from conventional capacitors.

Global Semiconductor Market Continues To Revive In 2014

In the wake of softening market demand in 2012, the global semiconductor market demand resumed in 2013. Despite the still-lukewarm macroeconomic conditions and noticeable declines in the demand for personal PCs, the worldwide semiconductor market still witnessed 3.3% year-on-year growth in 2013, bolstered mainly by the increasing demand for smart handheld devices such as smartphones and tablets.


From a macroeconomic perspective, the global economy is expected to see a slow comeback in 2014. According to statistics by IMF (International Monetary Fund), the global economy is estimated to see a 3.7% year-on-year growth in 2014, compared to just 3% in 2013. This is mainly attributed to growing economy witnessed in some major markets in 2014 such as the United States and Japan, even the euro zone. Emerging markets, though experiencing a slowdown, is expected to see 5.1% year-on-year growth in 2014, in particular China and India, where economic performance in 2014 is expected to outpace that in 2013.


Looking at the downstream demand for ICT products, the decline in personal PC shipments is expected to slow down in 2014 compared to 2013. Smart handheld devices, despite a slowdown in demand, are still expected to see positive shipment growth. Therefore, amid the global economic recovery, sales of smart handheld devices will buoy the global semiconductor market, to see a 4.4% growth in 2014 compared to 2013.
