  • Consumer electronics sector
  • Automotive sector
  • Industrial sector
  • Energy sector
  • Others

The top three segments based on end-users for the global supercapacitor market are discussed below:

Consumer electronics sector

The global supercapacitor market has been experiencing steady growth over the last couple of years. Technological optimization has created the demand for portable, intelligent, and sustainable devices. Supercapacitors used in the consumer electronics sector have fast-charging capability through a primary power supply.

According to Sunil Kumar Singh, a lead embedded systems research analyst from Technavio, “The use of supercapacitors eliminates the hazardous effect of battery disposal to the environment as they do not contain any toxic chemicals. Another reason for using supercapacitors in consumer electronics sector is the requirement of small and light energy storage solutions that can supply the same level of power.”

Automotive sector

Supercapacitors can operate efficiently in very cold and very warm environments, whereas lead-acid batteries do not. This makes supercapacitors more desirable than lead-acid batteries for engine-cranking applications in harsh automotive, military, and industrial sectors,” says Sunil.

Industrial sector

With the growing use of supercapacitors in the industrial sector, this segment is expected to experience rapid growth during the forecast period. Initial adoption will be very fast, owing to the benefits of supercapacitors. The high initial investment in supercapacitors is expected to be compensated by the productivity, consistency, and durability of these devices.

Supercapacitors are expected supplement existing electrical systems in industrial equipment. These devices will help industries during their peak cycles of the production process. They will also store kinetic energy from equipment movement for future use.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Maxwell Technologies
  • Nesscap
  • Nippon Chemi-Con
