This new market research study offers visibility to a granular level on the supply chain for anode and cathode foils to the aluminum electrolytic capacitor industry. The study shows the value and volume of demand for thin gage foil consumed in the capacitor industry, as well as the value and volume of etched and formed anode and cathode foils consumed in the aluminum electrolytic capacitor industry. The study breaks down the complex merchant and captive markets for capacitor foils and shows which capacitor manufacturers etch and form their own foils; and which third party companies are active in supplying ready to use etched anode and cathode foils to the global capacitor industry. The study shows the historical growth in the market over the past decade and shows trends in pricing for capacitor grade anode and cathode foils. The study shows a detailed break-down of the costs to produce aluminum electrolytic capacitors by type and configuration and illustrates the value of foil consumption in radial leaded, vertical chip, snap mount, screw terminal, solid polymer aluminum chip, motor start and axial leaded aluminum electrolytic capacitors. Global market shares for thin foil suppliers to the capacitor industry are given; as well as market shares for thin foil supply of 99.8% cathode foils and 99.9% anode foils. Forecasts in terms of value, volume and pricing for capacitor foils is given from 2013 to 2018 as well as end-market drivers in consumer audio and video imaging; computer and peripheral; power supplies, renewable energy, automotive, telecom power, and specialty markets are addressed. Forecasts are given for capacitor foil consumption by capacitor configuration to 2018.
