The global high-voltage capacitor market reached a value of US$ 1.93 Billion in 2020. A high-voltage (HV) capacitor is a dual-terminal electrical component, which is utilized to store energy in electrical and electronic equipment. It is among the crucial components used for power generation, transmission, distribution and high-voltage installations. Its capacity usually ranges from 25 volts for household electronics to 1000 volts for specialized industrial equipment. Polypropylene, ceramic, aluminium, glass dielectric and diamond-like carbon variants are the most common types of HV capacitors available in the market. They offer immense stability and power flow control, resilience, and reliability and can segment the power system to enhance the grid’s flexibility. Owing to these benefits, HV capacitors find extensive application across the electronics, utility, automotive and chemical industries.
The rising energy demand across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. HV capacitors are primarily utilized for ensuring uninterrupted power supply and the transmission of extra-high voltage (EHV) and ultra-high voltage (UHV) in residential and commercial complexes. Furthermore, the growing requirement of capacitors, owing to their high-temperature stability and insulation properties, has provided a boost to their sales across various industry sectors. Also, with the enhanced penetration of electronics in the daily lives of consumers, there has been an increase in the production of mobile phones, televisions, multimedia players, and smart televisions that utilizes such products. Various product innovations, such as the development of capacitors with improved transmission capacities, along with the increasing power generation through renewable sources, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global high-voltage capacitor market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
