Fixed Capacitor Market Drivers
Growing application of fixed capacitors in high-powered electronic circuits and consumer devices:
The growing use of fixed capacitors in high-power electronic circuits and consumer electronics is driving up demand for Fixed Capacitors. Capacitors determine the system's stability and reliability, making them one of the most important components in any electronic design. Because of their high dielectric constant, steady flow of electric charge and thin dielectric layers, they are widely used to meet the increasing demand for high charge density materials. In February 2022, Sabae Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. invested US$ 55.24 million in a new R&D project which would be used to make electronic components even smaller by using these fixed capacitors. This continuous growth would boost the Fixed Capacitor Market size.
Increasing Electric Vehicles Penetration in Automotive Sector:
The rising popularity of electric vehicles along with government initiatives such as tax cuts and subsidies for electric vehicle adoption would boost the adoption of Fixed Capacitors in electric vehicles. This would eventually boost the Fixed Capacitors Industry over the forecast period. Due to the steady flow of electric charge and usage of aluminum electrolytic capacitors in DC/DC converters and motor generators, the adoption of fixed capacitors would increase over the forecast period. In January 2021, Kemet launched A780, PHA225 and PHH225 hybrid aluminum electrolytic capacitors which can be used in automotive applications as well as industrial applications. These factors would positively influence the Fixed Capacitors industry outlook.
Fixed Capacitor Market Challenges
High manufacturing costs and lack of awareness regarding the benefits of capacitors:
High manufacturing costs, combined with a lack of awareness about capacitor benefits, are significant impediments to the growth of the Fixed Capacitor industry. Fixed capacitors are expensive due to the high cost of their base material. According to e-commerce websites, one MLCC costs around US$ 300 to US$ 500. Due to such high cost of the components, the end product is also priced highly. As a result, these factors are hampering the Fixed Capacitors Market growth.
