Supercapacitor Market size to cross $5 Bn by 2027

  • Published Date: January 3, 2022

Supercapacitor Market size is set to exceed USD 5 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The industry growth is credited to the rising adoption in smart home technology products globally. The smart home products are expected to generate a revenue of USD 15 billion in the U.S. with a y-o-y growth rate of 11% compared to 2020. Adding to this, the proliferation of IoT and AI-based smart home technology products are anticipated to support the market progression during the forecast period.

High technical issues, such as low energy density and large footprint associated with supercapacitor, is a major factor limiting the market expansion. Manufacturers are facing high initial costs for raw materials and installation fees, which is reducing supercapacitor market demand. Furthermore, they have a high self-discharge rate in consumer electronic devices, hampering the growth. However, researchers are experimenting with newer raw materials, such as graphene and activated carbon compounds, which are poised to lower the impact.
