This market study analyzes the global market for conductive polymer aluminum capacitors in molded chip, vertical chip and radial leaded configurations that employ conductive polymers to regulate equivalent series resistance (ESR). The study addresses the global markets for polythiophene, polypyrrole and polyanaline type conductive polymer aluminum capacitors in solid and hybrid liquid formats, including the value and volume of demand as well as average unit pricing. The study addresses the global market for conductive polymer aluminum capacitors by key consuming country and by key end-use market segment. A detailed analysis of the 19 vendors of polymer aluminum capacitors is also in the study, and addresses the competitive nature of the market at a granular level, including product lines by configuration, by ESR rating, by maximum voltage, by maximum capacitance value, and by maximum operating temperature. The study also offers sales and market shares for conductive polymer aluminum capacitors by configuration; as well as opportunities for conductive polymer aluminum capacitors in the existing V-chip and radial leaded aluminum electrolytic capacitor markets as well as timely market opportunities for molded chip polymer aluminum capacitors in the tantalum chip capacitor market. Detailed forecasts for conductive polymer aluminum capacitors are made in terms of value, volume and pricing to 2017 and producer profiles are also included for the 19 known vendors of conductive polymer aluminum capacitors.
