Region : Global | Report ID: FBI106454 | Status : Ongoing



Niobium oxide capacitors are capacitors with a niobium oxide anode and niobium pentoxide as a dielectric medium. The primary purpose of niobium oxide capacitors is for use in electronic devices with less space and low profile. The availability of the raw material, niobium, propels its use for capacitors, making them cost-effective.

The ever-reducing niobium oxide capacitor costs compared to tantalum capacitor costs drive the growing need for niobium oxide capacitor equipment for various end-user applications. Global population explosion coupled with increasing urbanization is expected to lead to a significant rise in energy consumption in the future years. In addition, the growth of electric vehicles and the consumer electronics industry is relevant for market growth. The miniaturization of electronic devices is an important trend for the niobium oxide capacitor market.

  • According to the United Nations, the human population is expected to grow by 2 billion by 2050. This is anticipated to increase industrialization and urbanization further, increasing the demand for niobium oxide capacitors.

Niobium oxide has very high ignition energy and high specific heat compared to niobium metal and tantalum. This has been portrayed to have a 95% reduction of ignition failure compared to the other capacitors. Due to the low electric stress in the dielectric medium, a high ripple current load and reduced voltage are observed.

North America is one of the major marketplaces. The increased utilization of electric vehicles in the region propels the demand for niobium oxide capacitors. Also, the high urbanization level in the region leads to a massive demand for consumer electronics.

  • According to Our World in Data, almost 82.66% of the population of the United States is urban as of 2020.

  • The United States recorded 231,000 Battery EVs (BEVs) and 64,000 Plug-In EVs (PEVs) in 2020, according to the International Energy Agency. The growing electric automobile sector drives the niobium oxide capacitor demand.


The niobium oxide capacitors market is expected to take a small amount of time before recovering from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic due to supply chain disruptions. However, the rise in the consumer electronics sector is anticipated to keep the market afloat.

  • In 2020, Xiaomi sold 147.8 million smartphones, whereas, in 2019, it sold 125.6 million smartphones.

As the supply chain is slowly gaining momentum due to the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, niobium oxide capacitors' demand is anticipated to rise at a fair rate.
