Ceramic Capacitors: A Global Strategic Business Report

Ceramic capacitors are one of the most widely used types of discrete capacitors owing to their functional utility, small size and low cost. Global ceramic capacitors market is primarily dependent on the multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) demand. Market for MLCCs is expected to witness healthy growth owing to increased overall demand in two growth areas including the high voltage and low-voltage/high-capacitance markets.

Ceramic capacitor market has been led by a steady trend of investing in high-capacitance designs in Y5V, X7R and X5R dielectrics. Producers are expending an increasing share of revenues on R&D in order to extend the product range to include alternative dielectrics such as aluminum and tantalum. Apart from the key shift towards chips of greater capacitance, expansion of specialty axial/radial leaded offerings by several producers marked yet another important development. Trends in the MLCC market indicate a steady development of miniature case dimensions (mainly the 01005 case) as well as higher voltages.

Asia-Pacific represents the largest as well as the fastest growing market for ceramic capacitors, as stated in a recent report published by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. Ceramic capacitors grab a major share of capacitor output of the manufacturers in Greater China. Hong Kong and Taiwan also hold significant presence in the manufacture of tantalum and film capacitors.
