Although capacitors have increased in price in line with rising demand, buyers have benefited from the market's low level of concentration, which has encouraged suppliers to compete with one another on the basis of price. For these reasons and to help procurement professionals make better buying decisions faster, business intelligence firm IBISWorld has added a report on the procurement of Capacitors to its growing collection of procurement category market research reports.

Price growth is projected to continue in the next three years, although rising competition will mitigate price growth

Capacitors have a buyer power score of 4.1 out of 5, representing a high level of buyer power. Capacitors are a fundamental component for electronics. Thus, demand for the product has grown steadily over the past three years alongside the increasing investment in technology. According to IBISWorld market research analyst, Andrew Krabeepetcharat, "Rising private investment in computers and software, per capita disposable income and the industrial production index has continued to boost demand for electronics and the capacitors used to build them." As such, suppliers have increased product prices during the period in response to rising demand. Price growth has been stable, though, which has allowed buyers to more accurately plan for future expenses.

Despite growth in prices, several factors increase buyer power. "Due to the fragmented nature of the market, buyers have a wide selection of suppliers to choose from and are able to use these options as leverage during the negotiation process," says Krabeepetcharat. Major vendors in the market include Panasonic, Philips and Flextronics. In addition, because capacitors are a fundamental component of electronics used in all types of industries, buyers face a low risk of vendor bankruptcy. Furthermore, supply chain risk in the market is low because capacitors can be made from a variety of materials that are readily available.

Capacitors are highly commoditized and the manufacturing process is standardized, eliminating the need for customization. This factor allows buyers to easily compare and contrast specifications and price offerings across different suppliers. Consequently, the standardized nature of capacitors reduces the time and financial cost of switching to another supplier. Unfortunately, buyers are not able to switch to a different product due to the lack of substitutes for capacitors.
