Key Findings

•The total ultracapacitor market witnessed unexpected slow growth in 2013 and is expected to experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of x % from 2013 to 2020. In Frost & Sullivan’s last report, the market was estimated to experience a CAGR of x % from 2012 through 2019.
•Sales fell short of expectations in North America but were high in Europe and Asia-Pacific in 2013. Despite the presence of local manufacturers, the United States lags in terms of sales and represented x % of the global market, while Asia-Pacific accounted for x % and Europe x % in 2013.
•Participants have experienced several difficulties in penetrating markets such as mild, micro, hybrid, and heavy vehicles, which are expected to witness high growth. The renewable energy applications market such as wind has been witnessing low growth.
•Lack of volumes combined with higher than expected pricing structures continue to limit end user uptake of ultracapacitors.
•Greater initiatives for developing a higher voltage threshold, which will increase the energy density of the entire system, will result in technology development in the market.
•Currently, the threshold is between x volt (V) and x V and is expected to be higher than x V.

CEO’s Perspective

Mass transport systems such as rail and the automotive industry as a whole provide scope for expansion of the installed base.
The hybrid capacitor could be a disruptive counterpart to Electric Double Layer Capacitor (EDLC) not reported in this research.
Ultracapacitors are expected to take several years to gain entry into the total available market for batteries.
Japanese manufacturers are expected to make greater efforts to increase their market share.
Increased consolidation, market entrants, and new technical research can lower prices.

Definitions

EDLC Definition: Electrical Double-Layer Capacitor/Electric Double-Layer Capacitor: A capacitor is an energy storage device consisting of one or more pairs of conductors separated by an insulator. The EDLC/supercapacitor/ultracapacitor stores energy at an exponentially higher density than regular capacitors. In an EDLC, the dielectric is suspended in a high surface area carbon material that acts as an ultra-thin dielectric medium. The combination of a thin dielectric and high surface area exponentially increases the charge potential in a very small device and hence such a device is called a supercapacitor or an ultracapacitor.
•Definition of unit: A single unit refers to one cell of an ultracapacitor. A module is typically composed of several cells integrated together to provide a desired capacity for a given application.
•Definition of prices: Prices are ex-factory approximated at the unit level. Prices are calculated as weighted averages in a given segment.
•Definition of revenue: Manufacturers’ revenue from the sales of ultracapacitors has been considered in the study.

Key Questions This Study Will Answer

Is the market growing, how long will it continue to grow, and at what rate?
Are there any new niche applications that can be pursued to increase market viability?
Does the alternative energy storage industry have the potential to be self sustaining without being dependent on the decline of the traditional technology industries?
How will the structure of the market change with time? Is it ripe for acquisitions?
To what extent is cell voltage being pushed beyond existing limits? How does this impact end-user application development and most importantly the cost of the ultracapacitor?
Which application is the market likely to pursue from a competitive standpoint in the forecast period?
