Lithium ion Capacitor Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Product (Radial, Laminating), By Application (Energy Storage, Transportation, UPS, Industrial Machine, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028

Last Updated: June 24, 2024 | Format: PDF | Report ID: FBI103790



The global Lithium ion Capacitor Market size was USD 23.8 million in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 24.7 million in 2021 to USD 35.6 million in 2028 at a CAGR of 5.4% in the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unmatched and staggering, with energy storage witnessing a negative demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global Market exhibited a slower growth rate of 2.8% in 2020 compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The rise in CAGR during the forecast period is attributable to this market growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the epidemic is over.

Lithium-ion capacitors have a greater power density than batteries, and LICs are safer to use than lithium-ion batteries because the LIBs can experience thermal runaway reactions. These capacitors, when compared to an electric double-layer capacitor (EDLC), have a high voltage. Both have similar power densities, but the energy density of a LIC is higher, which makes the adoption of the product easy in end-use applications.

Blockades in Electronic Industry to Harm Market Growth Amid COVID-19

The global pandemic caused by the spread of the novel coronavirus has devastated all industries. Industries have suffered significant uptime losses due to stringent rules such as bans to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus. As a result, the virus outbreak has changed the demand for the LIC. Since this market is heavily dependent on electrical and electronics activities, the long-term decline in the electrical and electronics industry has also affected investments in electronic loads. The imposition of bans in various countries and the closure of businesses except for essential services with a minimal workforce impacted international and domestic trade. This factor has directly impacted work in the energy storage industry, which includes LICs.

Growing Demand for Lithium-Ion Capacitor from Automotive and Industrial Applications to Spur Opportunities

The use of LICs in buses, fleet vehicles, subways, long-distance trucks, and trains, among other things, can reduce fuel consumption and eliminate the CO2 emissions of these vehicles. The introduction of the product in several automotive applications such as power assistance, auto-start-stop, catalyst preheating, door locking systems, regenerative braking, and stabilization of the electrical system is expected to increase the demand for these capacitors worldwide. The use of these capacitors has expanded battery capacity and enables vehicle manufacturers to achieve longer battery life, fuel efficiency, lower vehicle weight, and reduced carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. A lithium-ion capacitor is likely to penetrate all types of vehicles faster, including conventional, hybrid, and electric vehicles to meet stringent emissions regulations around the world.

Increasing Adoption in Renewable Power Generation and Distribution Segment to Boost Industry Growth

The current development of the lithium-ion capacitors is reflected in the increase in renewable energies applications, which have increased significantly recently due to their long service life. In addition, LICs in the wind energy sector control the emergency power fluctuations and control the operating current. Together with the integration of batteries, these products increase the power density of an overall system in solar energy storage. The use of this capacitor banks also improves the photovoltaic system to avoid over-battery storage, which increases the demand for these capacitors during the forecast period.

In addition, the wind and power grid sectors hold enormous potential for demand in the future. Hybrid capacitors are better used in the wind industry for brief bursts of high force required to change the blade pitch. In addition, they can help power grids to operate closer to their full capacity, which previously only used 90% of their capacity. Batteries have been used in the wind industry for decades. However, hybrid capacitors are currently used to supplement batteries because of their high intensity and longer lifespan compared to conventional batteries.


Increasing Demand from Consumer Electronics & Energy Harvesting to Aid LIC Market Dynamics

Lithium-ion capacitors are used in consumer electronics such as laptops, mobile phones, wearable devices, thermal printers, LED flashlights, RFID tags, barcode scanners, and GPS chips. Also, these capacitors are used to store harvested energy from lights, vibration, thermal, and radiofrequency sources. The advancement of technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) implementation is anticipated to drive the demand for lithium-ion capacitors during the forecast period.

Growing Demand for Electric & Hybrid Vehicles to Push the Adoption of LIC in Automotive Applications

LICs offer fast charge and discharge cycles compared to lithium-ion batteries currently used in electric vehicles. The power density of these capacitors is currently less compared to other available substitutes for energy storage applications. However, technological advancements and cost reductions will drive the adoption of these capacitors in electric and hybrid vehicles.


Low Energy Density of LIC As Compared With Other Energy Storage Devices Expected to Hamper Lithium-ion capacitors Market

There is good availability of the raw material in the market, various types of connection and construction are easily available, and have a highly mechanized manufacturing process. However, due to the low energy capacity of the product, limited energy storage can lead to a decline in Lithium ion Capacitor Market growth. If not properly installed, these capacitors will not achieve the correct capacity and create internal gas pressure, leading to an explosion. Because of these disadvantages, there may be a decline in market size.
