The global supercapacitor market size reached US$ 4.4 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 15.2 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 22.3% during 2023-2028.

A supercapacitor, or ultracapacitor, refers to an electronic device used for storing large amounts of electrical charge. It consists of two metal plates that are coated with porous activated carbon and are immersed in an electrolyte made of positive and negative ions dissolved in a solvent. While it is being charged, ions from the electrolyte accumulate on the surface of each carbon-coated plate, thus storing energy formed between the particles. As compared to the traditionally used batteries, supercapacitors deliver stabilized power, handle more fluctuations and discharge cycles and have wide-ranging operating temperatures. As a result, they are commonly used in smartphones, laptops, electronic devices and automobiles that run on batteries and require rapid charging to function.

Supercapacitor Market Trends:
Significant growth in the electronics industry, along with the increasing requirement for energy-efficient equipment for solar and wind power systems, is one of the key factors creating a positive impact on the market. Furthermore, widespread product adoption by the automotive industry is providing a boost to the market growth. Supercapacitors are extensively used in automobiles for a smooth charge/discharge cycle used for on/off switching in the vehicle. In line with this, shifting consumer preference for electric and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) is also favoring the market growth. Additionally, the increasing utilization of supercapacitors by the utility sector is acting as another growth-inducing factor. They are commonly used for generator bridging, ramping and regulation, primary frequency response, and voltage sag mitigation in microgrid monitoring and stabilization. Other factors, including the growing demand for consumer electronics with high battery requirements, are expected to drive the market further.
