Global and China Supercapacitor Industry Report, 2016-2020
Supercapacitor, an electrochemical energy storage device between conventional capacitor and secondary battery, is characterized by short charging/discharging time, long service life, good temperature property, energy saving, and environmental friendliness, and can partly replace traditional chemical battery.
Global supercapacitor industry has grownslower than lithium battery industry in recent years, largely due to lukewarm capital support for supercapacitor from governments and investors. Global supercapacitor market size reached about RMB28.36 billion in 2015 and is predicted to maintain a growth rate of around 20% over the next five years.
Globally, supercapacitor is primarily applied to consumer electronics and transportation, which made up 47% and 29% of total supercapacitor consumption respectively in 2015. The demand for supercapacitor from transportation, particularly electric vehicles, has risen rapidly and is expected to account for roughly 41% in 2020, becoming the largest application field of supercapacitor.
The United States, Russia, and Japan have always topped the global supercapacitor market and led technological level in the world. Major companies include U.S. Maxwell Technologies, Japanese NEC-Tokin and Panasonic, Russian Econd and ELIT, and South Korean NessCap.
China, a late starter in supercapacitor industry which is still in its infancy, sees about 60% of its domestic demand rely on imports. The Chinese supercapacitor market size approximated RMB3.7 billion in 2015, seizing 13.0% of the global market.
In China, supercapacitor has developed rapidly in urban public transportation and rail transit fields with internationally leading technologies. For example, the first supercapacitor bus and its fast charging station system which are up to the world’s advanced level were completed in Zhangjiang High-Tech Park, Shanghai in 2004; the first supercapacitor bus model line --No. 11 bus route was completed in Shanghai in 2006, becoming the first commercially-operated supercapacitor bus route in the world.
Nowdays, only 10-plus out of more than 60 enterprises engaged in R&D and production of supercapacitor in China can mass-produce practical products. Major powerful companies consist of Nantong Jianghai Capacitor Co. Ltd., SPSCAP, Shanghai Aowei Technology Development Co., Ltd., Bainacap Supercapacitors, Harbin Jurong New Power Co., Ltd., and Jinzhou Kaimei Power Co., Ltd.
