Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “Supercapacitor Market (Double Layer Supercapacitor, Pseudocapacitor and Hybrid Capacitor) for Automotive, Transportation, Industrial Energy, Consumer Electronics and Other Applications: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2016-2022”. According to the report, global supercapacitor market was valued at around USD 684.70 million in 2016 and is expected to reach approximately USD 2,096.16 million in 2022, growing at a CAGR of slightly above 20.5% between 2017 and 2022.
A supercapacitor is an electric double-layer capacitor having a high capacity electrochemical capacitor with capacitance values much higher than other capacitors that bridge the gap between electrolytic capacitors and rechargeable batteries. Supercapacitors are used in various applications which require rapid charge/discharge cycles rather than long term compact energy storage such as within cars, buses, cranes and elevators, and trains. They are also used for regenerative braking, short-term energy storage or burst-mode power delivery. Smaller units of supercapacitor are used as memory backup for RAM and SRAM.
