A super-capacitor also called as ultra-capacitor has a high capacity and capacitance as compared to conventional capacitors. It is capable of storing 10 to 100 times more energy per unit volume than electrolytic capacitor. Supercapacitor acts as a bridge between capacitors and rechargeable batteries. It is used for power regulation in batteries. Super-capacitors are used in application where faster charging and discharging is required, owing to its property of low impedance. These applications includes cars, trains, buses, and elevators, where it can be utilized for regenerative braking and storage of energy for short period of time. Other major application is wind turbines in which supercapacitors are responsible for smoothing out the discontinuous power supplied by the wind.

Advancements in consumer electronic technology is major factor driving growth of the global super-capacitor market, owing to increasing adoption of smart, sustainable, and convenient devices. For instance, smartphones and laptops require longer electric power backup, which is fulfilled by super-capacitors. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, in 2016, around 350 units of mobile devices were sold globally, which accounted for an increase of over 3.7% from 2015. Revenue generated by smartphone devices accounted for over 70% sales of the global mobile devices in 2016.

However, high cost of materials associated with manufacturing of supercapicator is major restrain for growth the global super-capacitor market. For instance, graphene is most commonly used in supercapacitor as electrolytes, which is more expensive than activated carbon and lithium ion batteries.
