Details

This new report from Paumanok Publications, Inc. analyzes the global market for capacitors consumed in renewable energy systems, including plastic film capacitors, aluminum electrolytic capacitors and EDLC supercapacitor markets in solar energy, wind turbine, tidal energy and geothermal markets worldwide. The study addresses the changing European market in 2013 and the shift in renewable energy demand to new venues in China, Japan, North and South America, India and the Middle East as a result of changing government incentive programs worldwide. The study focuses on specific demand for capacitors used in renewable energy systems by dielectric, including multiple sub-types of polypropylene and polyester plastic film capacitors, large can and snap mount aluminum electrolytic capacitors and large can electric double layer carbon supercapacitors and their specific requirements in various types of renewable energy systems including voltage ranges, capacitance values, ripple currents and additional technical attributes associated with capacitors. The study also addresses specific capacitor applications in renewable energy systems by type and circuit applications, including those in wind and solar inverters, wind turbine motor drive assemblies, DC link circuits, snubber circuits, interference suppression, power supplies and geothermal DC pump motors. Global markets are addressed, including the value of consumption for capacitors by dielectric in solar and wind power systems including regional and country–by-country analysis. A complete analysis of the capacitor supply chain to the renewable energy market is shown as is a detailed analysis of the global customer base in inverters, wind equipment aggregators, solar equipment aggregators, tidal energy equipment manufacturers and geothermal equipment manufacturers. An competitive analysis of capacitor vendors to the global renewable energy market space is give as are market shares based upon capacitor type and dielectric. Market forecasts are given for capacitor consumption in renewable energy systems by type (solar, wind, tidal, geothermal) and dielectric (plastic film, aluminum, EDLC supercapacitor) to 2018.
