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.
Globally, supercapacitor is primarily applied to consumer electronics and transportation, which made up 47% and 29% of total supercapacitor consumption respectively in 2015. The demand for supercapacitor from transportation, particularly electric vehicles, has risen rapidly and is expected to account for roughly 41% in 2020, becoming the largest application field of supercapacitor. The United States, Russia, and Japan have always topped the global supercapacitor market and led technological level in the world. Major companies include U.S. Maxwell Technologies, Japanese NEC-Tokin and Panasonic, Russian Econd and ELIT, and South Korean NessCap.
Global market for solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) was $303 million and $622 million in 2008 and 2012, respectively. Fuel cells are viewed as potential candidates for auxiliary power, mobile power, stationary distributed or central power, and portable product power. Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are among the most efficient and cost–effective. Although relatively high operating temperatures limit the range of applications stationary, mobile and even portable product configurations are possible. This report can provide valuable information in terms of assessing investment in particular technologies and, therefore, should benefit investors directly or indirectly.
Within the next five years, smart thermostats will be installed in 70 million homes worldwide. Smart thermostats make up nearly half of the 160 home energy management products that ON World evaluated for this report and 80% of the consumer reviews. This report is based on surveys and phone interviews with 2,000+ individuals across the whole home energy management value chain, an evaluation of 160+ products with 20,000 consumer reviews and 40+ companies.
