Executive Summary

A capacitor is an electrical device that stores energy in the form of an electric field and consists of two metal plates separated by a dielectric or non-conducting substance. Ceramic capacitors are one such kind of capacitors which are used in almost every electrical device and use a ceramic material as the dielectric.

Commonly used compounds in the manufacturing of ceramic capacitors include titanium dioxide, strontium titanate and barium titanate.

In order to gain higher capacitances, the ceramic capacitors can be made from multiple layers, known as Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs). MLCCs are made of alternating layers of metallic electrodes and dielectric ceramic.

The Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor Market can be segmented on the basis of product type and applications. The MLCCs are used in a variety of applications such as TV & Games, Home Appliances, Industries, PCs, Automotive vehicles and Mobile phones. On the basis of product type, MLCCs can be classified into COG (NPO), X7R, X5R, Y5V and other products.

The multilayer ceramic capacitor market has witnessed continuous growth in the past few years and is projected to grow even further during the forecast period (2018-2022) due to various factors such as growth in IoT (Internet of Things), increasing automotive production, rising demand for consumer electronics etc. Yet the market faces certain challenges such as tight supply and increase in lead times.
