* The global market for supercapacitors is estimated at $470 million in 2010. Demand for supercapacitors is projected to continue growing at a very healthy rate during the next 5 years, reaching a value of $1.2 billion in 2015, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.6%
* The energy sector is projected to represent the second-largest segment in 2010, with total revenues of $82 million, equal to 17.5% of the total. This sector is projected to increase at a 13.5% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach $611 million in 2015.
* The third most relevant sector is transportation, with a 13.5% share. This sector is projected to increase at a 34.8% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach $282 million in 2015.
STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Supercapacitors are devices utilized to store and release energy that are gaining increasing interest not only in their traditional field of application (electronics) but also in other sectors such as power generation and transportation.
The main goal of this report is to provide new insights into supercapacitor technology by outlining technological trends and supplying a market analysis for these products.
Specifically, the major objectives of this study are to:
* Provide a detailed review of supercapacitors, including a description of their types and fabrication technologies.
* Highlight new technological developments in supercapacitor manufacturing, while outlining technical issues.
* Review current fields of application for supercapacitors and investigate emerging applications.
* Estimate current global markets for supercapacitors by type, application, and region, with growth forecasts through 2015 for each market segment.
* Identify important technology and market trends within each market segment.
* Supply an updated review of current producers of supercapacitors.
* Provide a description of current worldwide research activities and evaluate their impact on industry growth.
* Determine trends in recently issued U.S. patents.
REASONS FOR DOING THIS STUDY
Supercapacitors (also known as electrical double-layer capacitors or EDLCs) are devices with design and electrical characteristics between those of capacitors and batteries.
* The origins of supercapacitors can be traced back to the year 1745, when the first electrostatic capacitor was created. The first electrical double layer capacitor, however, was fabricated more than 200 years later, in 1957, by scientists at General Electric. The first commercial product was introduced by Nippon Electric Company of Japan in 1978.
* During the following 2 decades several other manufacturers developed supercapacitors and entered the EDLC market. In the late 1990s, the number of research activities resulting in patent applications and issued patents began to increase rapidly. By the end of the first decade of the new millennium the number of new patents had risen by a factor of 3, leading to the development of products with improved electrical properties and lower unit costs.
The market for EDLCs is currently valued at approximately a half-billion dollars and continues to grow at a very healthy pace.
The principal reason for doing this study is to present a current assessment of the supercapacitor industry from both a technological and a market point of view and to outline future trends and key developments.
