Global Polystyrene Capacitors Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A capacitor is an electronic component that stores energy in an electric field. A polystyrene capacitor is a type of capacitor that uses polystyrene as the dielectric material. Polystyrene capacitors are used in a variety of applications, including power supplies, telecommunications systems, and computers.

Axial Polystyrene Capacitors:

Axial polystyrene (PS) capacitors are axially aligned parallel plates capacitor made from high-density polyethylene. The design offers several benefits over conventional electrolytic and tantalum capacitors such as low cost, small size, light weight and easy manufacturing process. Axial PS capacitors also have a higher surface area to volume ratio which helps in better thermal management of the device along with providing enhanced mechanical strength for handling high voltage applications.

Radial Polystyrene Capacitors:

Radial Polystyrene Capacitors Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Application (Consumer Electronics, Automotive), By Region (North America, Europe, APAC), And Segment Forecasts, 2020 - 2027 -> The global radial polystyrene capacitors market size was valued at USD 1.1 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.0% from 2020 to 2027.

Application Insights:

The Others segment held the largest market share of more than 40.0% in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The growing electronics industry, especially in Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa, is anticipated to propel demand for PSCs over the forecast period.

Audio manufacturing was one of the major application segments that accounted for a significant market share in 2017 owing to high product demand from this sector. Capacitors used in audio applications are typically required to have lowESR (Equivalent Series Resistance), high ESL (Equivalent Series Length), good dielectric strength, and be affordable compared with other technologies such as electrolytic or tantalum capacitors.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for consumer electronics and automobiles in this region. China, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan are some of the major manufacturers in this market space. Increasing production capacities by these companies coupled with growing demand from end-users is anticipated to drive regional market growth over the next eight years.

The European polystyrene capacitors industry was valued at USD X million in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period owing to rising product use across several applications including audio manufacturing and filter circuits among others.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive sector: The Polystyrene Capacitors market is expected to benefit from the increasing demand for electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles. This is because these vehicles require high-performance capacitors for various applications such as power steering, air conditioning, and engine control systems.
  • Growing demand for energy-efficient devices: With the increasing focus on energy efficiency, there is a growing demand for Polystyrene Capacitors in consumer electronics and industrial applications. These capacitors are used in a wide range of devices such as smartphones, laptops, LED lights, and solar inverters to improve their performance while reducing power consumption.
  • Rising popularity of smart homes: The growth of the smart home market is expected to drive the adoption of Polystyrene Capacitors in home appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, and dishwashers. These capacitors are used in various functions such as noise filtering and voltage stabilization in these appliances to provide a better user experience.
