Film Capacitor Market Outlook - 2026

The global film capacitor market size was valued at $2,125.0 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $2,589.1 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 2.5% from 2019 to 2026. Film capacitor is the electrical capacitor that uses thin plastic film as a dielectric. These capacitors are used in different industries such as consumers electronic, automotive, telecommunication, manufacturing, and others. Film capacitors are relatively cheap, have low self-inductance and equivalent series resistance (ESR), and stable over time. After manufacturing of films, capacitors can be metallized or left untreated, and depending on the needed properties of the capacitor.

Furthermore, film capacitors generally use polypropylene film as a dielectric, and these are used for high frequency high power application including heating, pulse power energy discharge application, and AC capacitors for electrical distribution. The film capacitor is widely used in different sectors owing to their higher characteristics. These capacitors are developed with high precision capacitance values and they retain the values longer than other capacitor types. In addition, the film capacitor have long shelf & service life and they are high reliable with low average failure rate. The capacitor has many types including metalized capacitor, polyester film, polypropylene film, PTFE film, and polystyrene film.

Some major factors impacting the market growth are given below:

Higher demand for film capacitor in consumer electronics component

Film capacitors are one of the most common capacitor types used in electronic equipment and many AC & DC microelectronics and electronics circuits. According to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the consumer electronics sales in 2015 was valued at $220 billion. Faster obsoletion in technology is majorly driving the adoption of electronics component, which is further expected to drive the film capacitor market during the forecast period.

Rise in demand for high temperature film capacitors

Many mining and drilling applications across industries need equipment with high temperature capacity to provide better performance and survive in continuous operations. Also, many electronic devices, such as high-performance power conditioning equipment and power correction systems, which are used in the aerospace and avionics sectors require capacitors that can work at high temperatures. In addition, discrete capacitors, such as electrolytic capacitors and tantalum capacitors can be damage due to high temperatures. Film capacitors also have the self-healing capability, which will help to any electrical system to prevents the circuit damaged and allows for the continuous operation.

Surge in demand for nanolayer film capacitors

Nanolayer cells are being introduced that can handle up to 150ºC. The most important feature of this capacitor is the dielectric strength of the material. In addition, for improving the dielectric strength, it is also vital to improve the energy density of the dielectric and increase in the energy density is also necessary to reduce the size of the component. Also, these capacitors should be operable at higher temperatures, which makes them useful in industrial applications. Furthermore, it has a high energy density, which required feature while developing next-generation capacitors, and provides lucrative film capacitor market opportunity globally.
