Market Insights 

"Rising Research on Advanced Ultrcapacitors spur the Market Growth"

Ultracapacitor is the fastest emerging technology and is frequently applied for thousands of energy storage applications. Their quick charging & discharging capability, high power, high reliability, greater safety, and efficient operation in adverse temperature are some of the major benefits over batteries that contribute significantly to its robust market growth.

Moreover, research on ultracapacitor is continued for decades but the technology has gained momentum after the advancements in nanomaterials. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is also researching on the novel nanomaterials that can be used as a dielectric material in solid-state ultracapacitor to enhance the energy storage applications in aerospace. As per a report published by NASA in August 2017, ultracapacitor behavior has been reported in various oxides including reduced barium titanate (BaTiO3) ferroelectric ceramics. The research has prime motive to develop an Internal Barrier Layer Capacitor (IBLC) using a novel dielectric that offers low mass-to-weight ratio, on-demand pulse power, and environment friendliness, low stand-by time without maintenance, longer life, and rapid charging speed.

The global ultracapacitor market is highly competitive in nature with the presence of significant number of players globally. Players also adopt merger & acquisition strategy of startups or other established companies to enter or retain their position in the market.
