The global market for supercapacitors increased from $643.4 million in 2012 to $776.8 million in 2013. With a market value of $873.2 million in 2014, this market is expected to reach $2.1 billion by 2019, corresponding to a healthy compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.4% during 2014 to 2019 period.

This report provides:

  • An overview of the global markets for supercapacitor technologies and developments, including a description of their types and fabrication technologies.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2012, 2013, 2014, and projections of CAGRs through 2019.
  • Estimate for supercapacitors by type, application, and region, with growth forecasts for each market segment.
  • An updated review of current producers of supercapacitors.
  • Comprehensive profiles of major players in the supercapacitor industry.

This report provides an updated review of supercapacitor technology, including materials and production processes, and identifies current and emerging applications for this technology.

This report delineates the current market status for supercapacitors, defines trends and presents growth forecasts for the next five years. The EDLC market is analyzed based on the following segments: device type, application and region. In addition, technological issues, including key events and the latest process developments, are also discussed.

More specifically, the market analysis conducted by BCC Research for this report is divided into five sections.

In the first section, an introduction to the topic and a historical review of supercapacitors are provided, including an outline of recent events. In this section, current and emerging applications for these products are also identified and described by sector (i.e., electronics, energy, transportation, medical, and sensors and instrumentation).
The second section provides a technological review of supercapacitors along with a description of the types of materials used for their manufacturing and a current review of EDLC configurations and their fabrication methods. This section concludes with an analysis of the most important technological developments since 2011, including examples of significant patents recently issued or applied for, as well as highlighting the most active research organizations operating in this field.

The third section offers a global market analysis of EDLCs. Global revenues (sales data in millions of dollars) are presented for each segment (device type, application and region) with actual data for the years 2012 and 2013 and estimated revenues for 2014.

The analysis of current EDLC revenues is followed by a detailed presentation of market growth trends based on industry growth, technological trends and regional trends. The third section concludes with projected revenues for supercapacitors within each segment together with forecast compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) for 2014 through 2019.

In the fourth section of the study, which covers global industry structure, the report offers a list of the leading manufacturers of supercapacitors together with a description of their products. The analysis includes a description of the geographical distribution of these suppliers and an evaluation of other key industry players. Detailed company profiles of the top players are also provided.

The fifth and final section includes an extensive U.S. patent analysis with a summary of patents related to supercapacitor types, fabrication methods and applications. The patents examined in this study were issued from 2012 through 2014. Patent analysis is performed by region, country, assignee, patent category, application and EDLC type.
